As a family guy I don’t spend much time at my computer on the weekends. Most Mondays, I have a really hard time ‘getting into the groove’ of working. I feel very ‘disconnected’ from work. Usually by Tuesday, I’m back into things and work productively through the rest of the week.
I do however, often spend Friday nights coding side-project things or wrapping up work for the week before shifting all my focus to the family for Saturday and Sunday (and Monday in the case of Memorial Day yesterday). It’s as though I’m slow on the transition from ‘computer person’ to ‘family person’ and back to ‘computer person’.
Does anyone else experience this? What do you do to ‘get back into the groove’? What do you do to ‘get out of the groove’?
