Well, my ten hour challenge didn’t start as well as I was hoping it would. Instead of being able to devote two hours every day after work during one week, I only managed to sit down for 3.5 hours. Why? Because I had other activities that required my immediate attention (paper deadlines, teaching activities, meetings etc.). So by the time I had taken care of most pressing issues, it was already 7:00~8:00pm meaning that working two more hours would have resulted in me crashing and burning big time :-/
Anyhow, I still have 6.5 hours to go and I’m planning on spending those in April. But more importantly, I’m conducting a pilot study on creative spaces and creativity in Copenhagen for the whole April. I’ll tell you more about that soon, but now I need to start writing those darn emails to suggest meetings with people. Or should I send the background info via email and then tell people I’ll be contacting them by phone? Needless to say, I think – together with many other people – that email is usually a terrible waste of time. More on that later on.
For now, hope you have an inspiring and energizing week ahead of you! 🙂
