Lesson:

This week I strictly separated my work and life hours. Atwork, no thoughts regarding any personal projects or anythingnon-work. And during life hours (evenings and weekends), nowork emails, no thoughts regarding work.Don't waste time in mending stuff anticipating you willrequire it someday. It is a waste of time. And since your ideais an anticipation, likely it will be different from realityso the time spent in "mending" is basically thrown away. Forexample, don't look for a webhost until you have an app ready:)

So far so good. Wish you a fulfilling week ahead.
