Psychology: annual cycles of¬†productivity
I learned an¬†interesting thing about my productivity¬†‚Äď each year, I perform better and¬†worse in¬†precisely the¬†same months as¬†in¬†previous ones. I have checked this dependency since 2019. I add my performance (good, average, bad) to¬†the¬†google sheets to¬†see the¬†pattern.
March-April is the¬†most effective time, April-June is a¬†high-performance time, July is less effective or¬†random, August-September is effective, October-November is a¬†bad-performance time, and¬†December-January is the¬†worst-performance time, February is a¬†random time.
What to¬†do in¬†the¬†bad-performance months? I think it is time to¬†relax and¬†make trips, learn or¬†practice new stuff. For¬†example, I am drawing and¬†playing the¬†piano in¬†such months (I‚Äôve been playing since 2021). I also made some mistakes: I played some computer games during the¬†bad-performance times because games don‚Äôt involve responsibility, and¬†games have no¬†deadlines so that I can stick to¬†my tempo.
One of¬†the¬†ideas to¬†spend November and¬†December is to¬†travel to¬†some countries, like Thailand, Indonesia, Dominican republic. You may just relax and¬†spend a¬†little time working. It is not¬†bad to¬†make progress slowly and¬†spend less time at¬†work. We are people¬†‚Äď we live for¬†emotions and¬†fun. Ask an¬†entrepreneur whether he spends all his time working. An¬†entrepreneur is calm; he delegates work to¬†others and¬†makes the¬†company work sustainably without the¬†involvement of¬†the¬†entrepreneur himself. Otherwise, it is not¬†a¬†business.
What does it mean for¬†you? First, also analyze your productivity cycles, find your patterns, and¬†think about how to¬†respond to¬†them. And, you may expect a¬†lot of¬†new content on¬†my blog and¬†youtube channel. The¬†blog theme, by¬†the¬†way, will be slightly changed: there will be content about traveling, architecture, business, and¬†finances. In¬†April I start a¬†project on¬†alternative investments. I will tell a¬†lot about creating a¬†business in¬†Austria and¬†why alternative investments are important for¬†any investor.
