I’m still here, still at the start point. I really want this habit to stick, but it’s more effort from me to make it happen. No worries, this time I’m certain I need this habit, so I’ll give it as much time as it needs to stay with me. Continue…
Today is Tuesday and I just realised that I forgot to start a new habit! I have no excuses for that.
How is it going with the previous habit? It goes slow and not stable. I force myself to plan and the plans so far were very… staged. I don’t like that. In my head day planning includes tasks that moves you forward to your goals, but I don’t have goals so all my plans becomes staged and full of everyday things.
What is the new habit? The new one is a day summary. I want to look back at a day and see what was good, what wasn’t and what I can improve. Analyse and learn. Plus I want to see a progress.
Something else? I will continue developing the habit with day planning. And the same goes to every habit — I continue practicing them, well because I want them to be in my life.
The first week was full of events and unpredictable schedule. I tried to plan first two days, but it after it was too much. I couldn’t control the events and had to act on the go.
I want to repeat the same habit again this week. Monday has passed and it was again sort of out of my control, but today – Tuesday – I can do. It’s the end of the day and by publishing this post I’m crossing my last task for today 😉
Continue to make the habit to stick.
So good that planned this challange ahead! I woke up this morning with a strong feeling to skip aka ”start next week”.
Ok. Screw the emotions and just do it. I think it’s a recipe for everything.
This week habit is “Day planning”. Everyday I set a plan for a day and follow it. It was said million times in every self-develop book/article/etc, but I never followed it for real. I did a few attempts. but never for long time. And let’s give it a try again!
Plan. Act. Repeat.
I’m so excited! We are moving from our 118 m2 house with 2300 m2 garden to 76 m2 apartment with a balcony.
It’s a big change and big downsizing from an owner of a garden with potato land and a newly installed greenhouse to a 6 m2(I don’t even know the real size) balcony. The downsizing of the living area doesn’t make me sad, but the garden. But! It’s an opportunity! Now I have a chance to plan everything from zero.
I have some things from the garden left, but still will need to buy pots and maybe small greenhouses.
Besides pots with plants I’m planning to have a small outdoor sofa with a table. Bigs plans for a small space 😉
I still cannot find myself. I did nothing to come closer to the goal that I sat to myself.
What do I think about finding myself? Maybe a challenge a week? Like one week I do this, another week I do that.
What I learnt about myself is everytime when I commit to a long term goal, I know that I will not make it. I immediately set myself to a failure, in my head I already lost the task so I don’t even try too hard. Maybe the solution is to have a shorter time. Like a sprint in Agile, one week – one challenge. I commit to do my best for a week.
So first thing is to think about whom I would like to be.
- Health oriented
- Career oriented
