After a slow day yesterday recovering from the new year today has been a completely different day. Even though I have still felt a bit tired I managed to complete almost all of my daily tasks.
Unlike yesterday this, however, has the opposite effect on motivation. Now I have set the bar so high its hard to just keep it up there. Not much chance improving from there, except by starting to come up with new daily challenges to complete.
Maybe the best way of looking into this is taking the average. I know not every day is the same. There are slow days and then there are those really active ones. After one you need another and they even out. Just need to make sure there really are both of them. And some average days in between.
It's ok to take a day off every now and then and not to stress about it. But there need to be some rules about that. Either I need to compensate those days beforehand so they can be thought as a reward. Or if the situation just happens I need to make that up with an active day before I can have another one.
