  • Time for working on contexts?

    David mentioned specific mood for specific contexts i.e. writing. Do you set specific time frames to work on specific contexts?

    I have no context schedule.

    No, I have no context schedule.

      I work from home with minimal external influences, so all of my contexts are available most of the time.

      Once I start down a track, I tend to stay on it until something interrupts me, even if it's not the best use of my time. I have, therefore, added some context-based scheduling to force me to reassess what I'm doing every so often.

      I'm finding I stay more focused on the task in hand when I know I've only got 25 minutes to do emails, before I move onto forums for 15 minutes, then writing projects for 30 minutes, then 10 minutes off the phonecalls list, etc.

      It's all very flexible, and I can choose to ignore it if I decide my current project or context IS the best way to spend my time. But that little bit of structure is a good thing for me.

        Yes and no. I have structured my workday so that most days I have the morning free at home for research and writing. This is really not scheduling by context or by project, but by habit, preference and experience. I am playing around with a specific @writing context, broken off from @computer. So far the change seems to have made very little difference. I am just finishing a 90-page ms, and have been doing a lot of writing, so I may not have good data yet on whether an @writing context is helpful to me.
