I have now completely disabled logging on my sites. Why? Because I don’t need the logs. Sometimes I used GoAccess to analyze the 30 days of logs, but I did that less and less and it doesn’t bring me any benefit. If any page is broken, I hope someone will send me a message.

But there were some things I had to get done though and my experience (and the statistics on Todoist) showed me, that I get a lot more done when I get up early.
