Even if you write something of poor quality but do it quickly, you’re already getting somewhere. Reflecting on writing is fine sometimes, but it doesn’t actually bring you any closer to completing a work, whereas having a draft, even if it’s bad, gives you material to hone.
I’ve removed email, slack, and the WordPress app from my phone. You can only call or text me and even then I leave my phone on silent. It helps my sanity – it doesn’t help my response times.
