I get more done when I pretend I’m 2 people

In honor of administrative assistant’s day, I’m giving mine the afternoon off. Well, ok, so I am my own assistant but it helps if I pretend I’m 2 people. When the magazine editor delegates the administrative work to the assistant, that clears the editor’s desk to focus on the mag. When the assistant’s work piles up, I sit at her desk and do that job. Being self-employed and working alone, I sometimes have to employ tricks to keep myself motivated. I said I wasn’t going to do it again but I just set up a computer in the living room, this one for tarot and astrology. I try to share space in the magazine office but that doesn’t work well for me. It’s too easy to let myself be distracted. I work more inspired when I have dedicated workspaces.
