Hi Nolann. Great question about learning new skills. There always seems to be something I’m working on which requires my absolute best energy. That’s usually something which I’m still learning.
For these items, I have yet another way of categorizing work. I think of it in terms of “front burner” and “back burner.” Front burner work is the top-priority stuff that requires my best energy. Front burner work could fit into any of the above mental states. I personally find it easy to decide when to do this work because I always do my most important work first thing in the morning.
