There are bad days, too

Last Updated on

I’ve crashed hard for the last 2 days. I don’t want to do ANYTHING :)

Several years ago I’ve told myself I’ll never fly somewhere early-early in the morning for something just to fly back the same day. While I might be ok that day, it fucks up several days after that (I’m not 35 anymore :D ). And I managed to keep my promise for the last 2-3 years. Until Wednesday, 2 days ago.

I’ve been to London for RebeBio’s Demo Day (see here the pitches, if you want). And, instead of flying a day before, getting a good night sleep before the event and flying back at the end of the day, I woke up at 5am to fly to London. And this fucked me up completely.

Now, on Friday, I’m on my second day of “Fuck off, I don’t want to do anything!”. Even going to the kitchen to eat is an exercise in motivation. Looking over the design of a side project I’m doing? Not gonna happen.

Several years ago I hated these days. Even worse, I hated myself for not being able to be at peak efficiency every day.

Not anymore. There are bad days, too. Keep this in mind for yourself, as well.

Oh, and some reading on how important sleep is as a productivity tool.

P.S.: for the first time in 8 months, I almost forgot to send my weekly newsletter yesterday. Go figure!


What you see in the image above is Cliffs of Moher on a really, really bad and shitty day. Still, a wonder to see anytime :)
