(I had to include this one because this is the most hilarious face ever.) 

Through some very scientific studies, I have come to the conclusion that I have two working states:
  1. OMG I'm interested in EVERYTHING, must learn how to build a website, manage a database in Hadoop, take better pictures, market ecommerce products, create 3 more blog features and learn Mandarin RIGHT NOW!!!! (Yes, there are 4 exclamation points in my head.) Oh and right, I have to do my day job. 
  2. Indifferent withdrawal from #1. 
I'm told most people don't notice when I'm state 2 above.  But there's a definite different in how I feel about doing whatever tasks I need to do.   Honestly, I'm okay with this -- I'm hyper productive when in state 1 and in 2 I tread water well enough to gear up for the next time I'm recharged enough to go into 1 again. 

Now many people would argue that I should just find a happy medium and stick to it.  I've tried that.  It doesn't really work for me. I fall prey to the basic laws of inertia - An object in motion stays in motion.  An object at rest stays at rest.  I'm infinitely more productive and efficient with almost more to do than I can handle.  Now, there is a burnout level (and I have, in the past, found it) that I need to watch out for, but otherwise, I've come to terms with how I handle my interests and implementing.  And I rather like it.

Moral of the story -- I think I'm gearing up into State 1 again.  Hopefully that means that there will be some good things happening on this blog.  (For example, I'm in a desperate need for a site redesign. Ahem.)

How do you handle your workload and interests?  Share in the comments!
