Productivity

Last week was busy.

First off to the International Court of Justice to cover a case between Ukraine and Russia. Then a lot of phone calls to sort out a summit on creating a tribunal for prosecuting IS fighters. Finally, off to the opening of the Global Entrepreneurship Summit.

Then back to court.

Then working on the texts for an exhibition. Then back to the ICJ on Thursday and Friday. Plus the Dutch News podcast.

Oh and trying to check my email and pet my dog.

But, I finished two short stories and started a third last week. More productive than I have been in months.

There’s something about being busy and engaged that makes me more productive. More creative. I generate more ideas. Whenever I have a slow week, I think “Oh yeah, I’ll get a lot done” but somehow, I consistently manage to not get much done.

Anyone else have this?
