It's 10 A.M. I've been in front of the screen for an hour and I haven't been able to write a single line of code.
We have a great application to market and I don't know where to start. Everything is ready, everything is planned, but the importance of the project outweighs my knowledge when starting work.
The calls and messages begin, some important, others simply to ask how are you? How's the day going? Videoconferencing meetings are happening, increasingly numerous and long since we are confined by the pandemic.
So there is no way. You think that by working from home you will be calmer, that you will be more productive, but that requires great concentration. And you cannot be concentrated for a minute if when you leave a meeting, they call you by phone, or you receive 10 emails with the heading URGENT !!!
You think the best way is to disconnect all communication programs and isolate yourself, but right away they call you again to ask if you have any connection problems or if you have taken the day off.
So there is no way to work.
Now it's noon, and the blank screen continues. And they just called me to a meeting to explain how the project is progressing. How it progresses, but how will it progress if I am always together ...
In a brief interval of calm I jot down some ideas for the project. But the screen is still blank.
Night has fallen, the working day is over, and the calls, videoconferences and messages stop. Tranquility. Then the lines of code began to emerge: one, two, a hundred ... It seems that the project is now progressing at a good pace. I look at the clock and it's 3 in the morning.
It seems that you work better at night than during the day, or maybe you work better during the day if we forget so many meetings to see what we do and we really do.
