Discussion on: The peace of not coding

I can relate to this deeply, both for school projects now and side work over the weekend. One thought that helped me is thinking of myself as a rubber band. If you constantly make it stretch it loses potential in time.

What I learned from my mentors over the years is it is better to have a schedule in place. Say I want to make one new blog post, a few new commits into the side project, etc. This helps me visualize things so I am not too stressed about not doing things on weekday nights, but also make sure that I get the the work I set up done.

Hope this resonates with people.
