How many times have you heard the phrase, “you should lock yourself in a room for a week, and just crank?”
Someone said this to me just last Thursday and it really hit home. I’ve never done that. I honestly don’t know of a single time I’ve just disappeared for a week and worked on just one thing. It’s nearly impossible to do that these days, with clients calling, deadlines to meet, and even friends and family.
But the possible productivity result of renting a cabin with electricity and working on one single thing for an entire week, without distraction. Now that sounds like fun. Plus imagine how much you could get done. While it might take you months to do something if you only spend a few hours a week on it, with a week of solitude you could be done!
So, how does one go about this? Is this sort of like going on vacation? I wonder if I could get away with that. Where would I go, too? Do I rent a cabin? So much to think about. There should be something in the phone book about this.
