That doesn’t give me anxiety.

I do live on the west coast, Portland, OR. I am the west most person on my team, so I always have people asking stuff from me before I even wake up.

That’s what I try and do, not always very disciplined about it.

I see now that you live in Germany, my biggest issue is not Europe, 1/3 of the globe away. It’s the challenge of people being just a few hours ahead, so you start your day with everyone wanting something from you, no matter how early you get up.

Think you’ll have a hard time finding people who live in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean with a three hour headstart on their day. But please, let’s argue about how I _feel_.

So one of my plans for the summer is to build a console table for our living room, and then start charging my phone out there, so I can’t just roll over and look at my phone.

I just want to wake up and chill for an hour or two, with my own thoughts and ideas, before jumping into responding to everyone, ya know?

Yeah, I do almost all the steps I can to mitigate notifications. Think the only things I haven’t done but could do are remove badge numbers and increase my Do Not Disturb setting to 9am.

Ha, I feel over connected in the morning, under connected in the evening. I wake up to everyone wanting something from me, I go to sleep wishing there were a few more people to interact with.

Sometimes that's true, like a tweet going viral while I sleep (which has happened a few times). Other times, if it's like 20 Slack notifications, I assume I broke something or did something wrong.

Not quite. The oceans do ensure some reprieve. Trust me, I have enough global followers that I can "feel" that. That being said, it's not just twitter, and the East Coast having several hours head start increases notifications quite a bit.

Sometimes I wish I lived further east for no other reason than to have fewer notifications waiting for me when I wake up. Often, it makes me feel anxious and that's not the best way to start my day.

Hey Jerome, I just got it. I will take some time this afternoon to look at the PR.

Ha, do you have any assistance on the course for that? There are blind golfers out there, and I've heard stories of the benefit of not being able to see trouble, caddie just points them in the right direction and they swing without fear 😁

For ex., I can look at someone's golf swing, or even just their setup, sometimes even just the way they "walk" around a course, and I know how they're going to hit a ball and what will happen next. Experience has given me pattern recognition for those particular things.

Anything in the whole world you "just know" is a related to experience. Until you've learned the patterns, you won't have any instinct for what can be improved. No remedy for that but time, practice, and increased knowledge.

If only there was a world where I could be a woodworking musician professional golfer who programs. Ha.

I want to follow all my passions 24/7, too, but have no idea how to make a living doing all the random things I love, ha.

The big things are that your credit plummets (finding housing is difficult with bad credit) and your wages will be garnished (taken directly from your paychecks in an amount they decide). You end up in a hole you can’t dig your way out of.
