The post-deadline calm

10 May 2013

That time after passing a deadline is always an odd one; on one hand there is that wonderful rest having worked crazy-hard to hit the targets, to get the work done on time. On the other hand it does seem to make everything else after feel really slow...

Yesterday was deadline day. Today is the post deadline calm. I've done a fair amount of work today, I would even go as far as to say it was productive. Just not even close to being a productive as the last 10 days. As a result today has just felt slow.

I think there is an interesting balance to be found in the pace of work. I am certain that I would hit burnout very quickly if I kept on at the pace of the last two weeks, but I also think I would end up going mad if my pace was as slow as it has felt today!
