In trying to be more productive with my time lately, I’ve been finding so many new things I want to try and keep up with. However, when I get excited about a new project, I tend to focus on it and forget about other ones I had already started…
I decided to go back to what I’ve done before and have a weekday schedule of project types for each day. I actually found my old post from 2012 that had my old schedule listed:
- Monday: Video games! and reading
- Tuesday: Crafts project
- Wednesday: Technical project
- Thursday: Do something with Jack (play games or do a project or something)
- Friday: Free choice
When I decided to make my current one, I had remembered that I used to have one, but I couldn’t remember what it was and hadn’t looked it up. It turns out it was pretty much the same as the previous one! Including the day for hanging out with Jack – I guess I’m pretty consistent in trying to have a dedicated “You have to spend time with me” day 😂 The difference now is that Tuesdays and Thursdays also include going to the gym after work, so the days are moved around based on what I am okay with having less time for:
- Monday: Technical project
- Tuesday: Gym, hang out with Jack
- Wednesday: Crafts/journaling
- Thursday: Gym, games, read
- Friday: Whatever
An interesting thing is that in the blog post about my old schedule, I wrote that I had decided to come up with it “so I don’t get lazy and do nothing when I can’t decide what to do”. The one I have now is almost the opposite – I have too many things I want to do and it gets to be a big mess with nothing getting finished if I don’t have focused days!
I haven’t quite decided if writing this blog post today is on schedule or off schedule – I usually put it in my planner for a weekend. I guess writing a blog post would kind of fall under journaling.
And now, Juggernaut:
