After my previous post, where I concluded I was more productive when alone and the environment did not necessarily have any relevance, I find myself in another situation where I can put this theory to the test.
I returned yesterday from a week in Bali, to enter the two week self-isolation phase introduced by the Australian government for EVERYONE entering Australia from overseas. I now have an enforced further two weeks off work. To protect my housemate, I have come to our beach house in Inverloch for the two weeks. Beautiful environment indeed – as you can see by the photos I posted in February.
So, I am alone. Will I be as productive as I was in Bali? More productive? After all, in Bali I could go out to restaurants, shops, and bars. In my current situation I am forbidden from leaving the house. I’m allowed a night-time walk with no-one around. And, as Inverloch is pretty much deserted at the moment, I’m sure I could get to the beach for a walk (or swim – weather permitting!) without running into anyone, but basically I am house-bound.
We’ll see how this pans out, and I’ll keep you posted on my productivity levels over the next two weeks.
