Quarantine — Day 8

It's easy to avoid distractions. It's too difficult to focus.

This post is part of an ongoing series in which I document my journey through the COVID-19 quarantine. See Day 1 for full context.

Quick update

I’ve been consistently avoiding distractions these weeks. Doesn’t seem like a particularly difficult thing to achieve for me. But, having all the time to work on my projects, it’s too difficult to focus.

I got a ton of ideas I’m not really sure where to start or which one to commit to. I keep doing solid progress on Notyf, and I’m happy about it. But, other than that, I’m having a hard time finding my side hustle. Not sure if I should just try whatever comes to mind, or keep thinking thoroughly about it.

Let’s see what the next week brings on me.
