From Minor League Sports to a Major Resolution: Part 6

I had a minor epiphany today while I was writing the last post. In past entries, I’ve explained how my most productive days location-wise tend to be those at the rink in the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence. Today, I reached a similar conclusion regarding not where I am but how I’m dressed. I’m no psychologist, but I think I’m onto something.

The dress code for each of my jobs is slightly different, and my role within each organization is as well (although there is some overlap). I can do work from home for any of my three jobs, but the majority of it comes in the office, at the ballpark, or above the ice. However, when I’m at home, my attire usually doesn’t change much based on my job. I might have to change that based on my habits lately. (If this method of hypothesizing freaks you out, I’m sorry. I hope I didn’t I remind you of Sheldon from the Big Bang Theory.)

I’m at my best creatively speaking when I’m in my pajamas, no matter what time of day it is. I don’t plan on wearing them to the HIP, State Street in Boston, or Downtown Providence anytime soon though. If I need to write something or hatch a plan, soft and snuggly is the way to go for me.

If I need to do any sort of calculating (whether it be planning out the media buys for the Tornadoes, following/changing the content calendar for the Coach of the Year, or something similar), a collared shirt and pants seem to make me most productive.

When I’m calling a game, a polo shirt and shorts make me most comfortable. I can’t wear those to a P-Bruins game, but luckily standing up (instead of sitting to watch) serves as a good tactic to be at my peak level of performance.

For most other things, it doesn’t seem to matter what I’m wearing, but those three I do often enough that I’ll stay focused on them.

Assuming you’re interested in productivity tips (you wouldn’t have read this far otherwise), you should check out the Lifehacker blog. It has all sorts of helpful info on DIY projects, getting the most out of what you own and being the best person/human you can be (in many different ways).
