Working on concentration and consistency.
I have a 1.5 hour to work on my PhD. All of the sudden every email is important and there are plenty of things to do at home that just can't wait.
It is a constant struggle to focus on the thesis. The fact that this is a middle of the night is not helping either. I have told my girls to set a timer for 25 minutes (pomodoro technique) and do only one thing in this interval.
Probably a time I do what I preach...

Consistency is also a struggle. Every day I try to write a couple of sentences here. Every evening I try to use Trello to plan my day. Some days it work. More days I fail. I hope that I am improving.

When you get a question from a customer support people, there is only one correct answer: "Let me check and I will get back to you".

Otherwise, you get into a position like me today.
I fix one program in a PowerShell script and the script fails on the next problem. Not my fault but I do not look professional here.

"Let me get back to you on this one" - and then you have time to test and verify,.
Answer right away and you will make another mistake.
