Why I'm Working on 8 week Cycles - An Experiment in Focus

I'm starting 2021 with an ambitious planning goal - to work in 8 week cycles... with 2 of those weeks set aside for buffer and sabbatical rest. Will working less allow me to do just as much, but with increased margin?

A few years I ago I started testing 8 week cycles for my side hustle (YouTube, courses, etc). The idea is to focus on a specific project or goal for 6 weeks then take 1 week to buffer and 1 week to rest. It went moderately well as a YouTube schedule, but I was still working full-time at ConvertKit. Could I really take a full week off so early in my new company? Listen in and find out!

Apologies for being a day late! Had trouble with the upload all weekend 🙃
