My concentration levels are definitely along the lines of the traditional bell-shaped curve. Starts low/ badly on Monday, gradually improves on Tuesday to peaks on Weds and Thursday, before sloping off again towards the end of Friday, and continuing into Saturday.
Having reached this conclusion, what can I do about it?
Nice literature searches to do on Monday and Tuesdays, when I'm constantly interrupted by the library assistants on duty and have 'KC Space project' things to do (currently).
Build up to writing and any serious management work on Wednesdays and Thursdays, when I line-manage most actively when BJ is here all day.
Friday - work on my Transplant /Renal/ Urology blog and other activities that require less concentration.
I need now to see if this ideal work flow matches up to my workload and whether it can be put into practice. Being away from the office in York at a conference on Monday and Tuesday this week has thrown me all off... but I'm doing remarkably well today, considering that I haven't slept well all week.
