As my projects demand me to become more technical and go into heads down build mode, I find that there is a paradigm shift that happens within me to help me focus and be productive. I enter into a “meditative like” state where I block everything out and just focus on the dev work/task ahead. Here are a few things that I do in particular to help me out with this:

  • Workout in the morning
  • Go to a quiet place outside of my house if I can
  • Keep water right by me
  • Have a clear schedule
  • Pomodoro sessions
  • Clearly establish what I need to work on for each session
  • Self-Control mode on
  • Meditate/visualize for 2 mins before starting work and allow myself to believe

What are your favourite ways to get in the zone? :)
