re: How do you handle unproductive days at work? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Typically, if I can't resolve my unmotivation with the other tips (like taking a break, getting some exercise, starting with a small task, etc.) it's because I feel stuck on something, so I'll ask a coworker if they have a moment to help me.* Sometimes I'll just end up using them as a rubber-duck, and sometimes we'll pair for a while. But it usually gets things going again for me. Or at least makes me feel like I tried! haha I also try to remember that sometimes we'll just have off days, and that's ok.

* I work on a distributed team, so this means hopping on a call, but I'm sure it works pretty similarly to in-person offices.
