It's easy to find yourself on a Friday, looking back and wondering where the time went. Work hard to raise your own expectation of how much work you accomplish in a day.
Amen, sibling. Perhaps this is something so trivial/obvious that the OP decided it wasn't worth mentioning, but a good personal time tracking system is essential; it gives you feedback (why can I only account for 4 hours of my workday? Time to cut down on /.!) and data for your employer (I spent 15 hours last month maintaining product X; perhaps we should fix those bugs?).

[stevieb]: choroba my GPS home device is done, at least prototype v1 is. I'm just making sure all of my code does what it says now
[stevieb]: I test/prototype code on my Pi, then I migrate it over to Arduino when it's ready (if that's a better platform for what I'm doing). The whole RPi stuff was for learning at first, then it snowballed. I'm just trying to get my in-house CI...
[stevieb]: ...done, which obviously requires a specific hardware setup.
[stevieb]: I don't write tests for the lower-level distributions (ie. ICs, sensors etc) within those distributions, I have all tests in a master distribution which encompasess all of the sub-modules
[choroba]: so you do kind of "integration testing" only
