|It would be interesting to see a graph of my productivity as compared against various events. What effect does coffee have? What effect does sleep have? What effect do the various musics in my playlist have? I need an impartial recording device to note all that transpires, and to note my wordcount (or code-size, if I'm programming, or framecount if I'm animating, or whatever equivalent measure of progress) constantly throughout the day. I'm quite sure that caffeine is up there on boosts, but does it also have a draining effect when it wears off? I suspect that my older, more familiar music makes me more productive than newer music that distracts me; perhaps faster music makes me more productive too. What influences make me more likely to rehash work I've already done, and what makes me more likely to do work that needs the rehashing? Does taking a break to read blogs and comedy websites increase my productivity when I'm finished? Perhaps I shall write something to make such measurements and produce graphs thereof. But not today.
