Vacation Time In Three, Two, One…

[Dutch Lock Down Day Three Hundred Ninety Six]

GO!

Mostly.

I still need to start a company and talk with an accounting firm and a notary or a lawyer – oh, and return Equinix Metal’s hardware to them – but otherwise, I’m mostly on vacation for the next two weeks.

What will I DO with myself?!?

Chill.

A LOT.

But first the news:

It mostly comes down to maintaining a schedule that I can flip over to work easily. Instead of writing or coding or watching television, I’ll be working, but keeping the same sleep schedule, the same exercise routine, similar eating habits – this is key to stability.

And moving easily back into work after two weeks.

Each day will look something like this:
