Leaving the Laptop Behind

Since getting back from Madrid (the tournament report may be published at some point), I’ve left my work laptop in the office. It’s a small change in mindset that’s having quite a big effect.

I didn’t do work on it every night, in fact I rarely did. But having two laptops at home often meant that I’d use two laptops at home. And if that meant making a few small changes to SASS stylesheet on one, while checking Twitter and (legally) streaming football so be it.

But, without the work laptop at home, I’m actually using my personal laptop less as well. This may be well timed with the arrival of Jeff:

Because really, who’s going to work when this guy is attacking your appendages.

But, I’m leaving my laptop at work and feeling great about it.
