Email Devs: Ever have unfocused days? How do you handle them?
This is an unusual topic to discuss but I'm curious. Has anyone else found a lack of focus when developing emails throughout the week? Especially, the end of the week. What's your average "peak performance time" and when do you reach a "burnout time"?
Our production team comprises of one manager handling the backend and two email front-end devs including myself. For me, all of it varies depending on the complexity of the builds and the number of deployments. And, sometimes, there are just those days when you're on hold waiting for additional content or awaiting approval. But overall, I usually find myself unable to focus after a couple of weeks of heavy builds. When this happens, you'll find me navigating the web for email related inspiration, articles, new techniques, marketing strategies, and of course cat/dog videos.
What about y'all?
