I take naps. - I am an IC. sm

Posted: Feb 10th, 2020 - 3:08 pm In Reply to: General question about motivation: I consider myself - a veteran of the MT profession,

I'll take a nap around 1:30 pm. I get away from all electronics.

Once in a while, I'll come on this board. I was going on FB MTU group, but I can't stand the drama and long-winded posts. I lose interest.

I like coming here because there are all different topics and I feel more relaxed.

I try to only work from around 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. with a lot of breaks in between to cook, clean something, or just listen to a song on my phone. Then back to work it is. I will also run errands.

I know my day is lengthy, but there is no way I could sit here for eight hours. I've been doing this for 30 years and still in my forties (okay late forties, but still), and my arms tire easily, which is why I love editing. Fortunately, I work for a company that is truly IC and I make my own schedule from day to day.

I still love MT work. I do wish it paid more, I really do, but all in all like others said, there is so much more peace working from home.

I have tried outside jobs, and I clearly will never fit in. It's just been too long for me now being at home. I do what I want when I want. I can have lunch with a friend or go for a walk...

Focus is tough though. And, if you've gotten this far reading my post, try a power hour. Say 9 a.m. to 10 a.m, you're just gonna type. 10 a.m. treat yourself even if it is just to sit on the couch and close your eyes and relax your body and your joints and your thoughts. Think of nothing.

Best to you! I'm in it with ya' though!
