I fondly remember my childhood days where I was up till 6am in the morning coding something or trying to get something to “work”, not caring what I had eaten or if I had slept.
As I’ve grown older and life has gone busier, the need to collaborate, stick to schedules, attend meetings etc. means I’ve to now conform to my schedule as per the world around me, not in the way that I want to.
But I still believe that to do great things, the whole idea of time has to take a backseat. When your mind stops caring about “what date/time is it?” and starts to focus only on “the task I’m trying to do”, new ideas are born and breakthroughs happen.
Magic rarely happens during “working hours”. It happens when you lose track of them.
