For me, not getting interrupted is important, but I also need to get in a kind of "productive-zone". Getting there depends on many factors, however mostly my emotional state, the time of the day and the adrenaline in my blood.

  • When I feel good, and I am happy (maybe looking forward to working on a feature), I get into the zone.
  • I am a night-person. I am more productive in the evening, which is why I postpone hands-on work until the afternoon and do meetings and small tasks in the morning.
  • Alternatively, if I drink a few cans of cheap, strong energy drink, I will be the most focused person on campus. That's not necessarily healthy, so I don't recommend adding it to a blog ๐Ÿ˜‰

Yes, I totally get the happy and productive relationship. There is actually some research showing that as well. Thanks for anwsering.
