New year , new challenge : 

  • Diet : Make 3 smoothies a week.  One being a new recipe.
  • Fitness : Scout out the Tai-chi schools in the area.  One / week
  • Life : Use the  Ivy Lee Method .  6 Tasks for work / 3 Tasks for evening  ; 6 Tasks for Weekend-days
    •  Stress being on writing the note with tasks.  Not actually doing the tasks.

Edited the Life-goal ;  specified the number of tasks / life-piece.

 

I've been experimenting with this system for the last 2 weeks.  It works like a charm.  It's very seldom I see the note and I don't have the willpower to read it.  

And well: the last years I've been in such an apathetic state it is allready a huge gain if I only do 1 task an evening, That over a week; is like living in another universe.

My joy at work allso allready got a boost, since I'm getting things done pro-actively.

day1 : 

Life-goal ; Just before ending the day I was at risk of falling asleep at work.  I went into survival mode and totally forgot to write the note.  And somehow 5hours later before going to bed I forgot the write the evening note :s    baffled

day 3 : 

After a debate with a collegue at the end of day, I closed my pc and ran for the bus :  and did not write the work-note :s

At home I did execute the 3 evening-tasks & I wrote the evening-note before going to sleep.   Looking forward to this evening.  The middle task between 'starting the laundry-machine' & 'go to dry-house with laundry'  is 'Transfer plant to bigger & multiple pots' :) 

 

/edit : Forgot to mention 

Diet : made a  Cucumber/apple/water smoothie

day 4:  

We had an emergency at work in the afternoon.  At the end: rushed out of the building to catch a bus.. forgot the note :s   If this continues, I need to be more flexible on the timing of this note-writing.    Came home late. no tasks done.  Crashed into bed early.  Wrote the evening note in the morning after waking up.

the evening measurement of 105 didn't happen ; It's stuck at 107cm.

 

Day 7 sun ; I can only remember re-potting my big plant & splitting his babies in vessels to grow root.  and being seriously pissed at myself for having not noticed there are no holes in the pots !! 

 

Day 8 mo : forgot the note again at work ; Did write the evening note.   Was more motivated to do intermittent fasting then to drink smoothie.

 

Day 9 Tue : I put the repeating reminder in my outlook and behold : I wrote the 6tasks in notepad.  Acutally executed two evening-tasks & wrote the evening-note : easy one : no tasks but to go TableTop gaming with collegues tomorrow.

 

 

I've got an issue with the Tai-chi course goal ; Due to my work/life flow , I come home late.  So I was counting on a day of HomeWorking to make this plausible.  With the introduction of Agile programming ; I'm flooded with meetings, presentations, kick-offs , reviews etc.   Need to broaden my search towards the weekend.

We - thu : we're ok on writing the Ivy Lee note ; I managed to completely forget about it on Friday.

No smoothie's so far ; intermittent fasting instead ; and Friday I caved in on a binge with a huge pack of pickles chips & a can of soda.

tai-chi course seeking does not lift off

Week 3 ; started drinking again on Tuesday.

That killed of the smoothie goal.

Tai-chi , or any other evening-course is impossible as long as I don't get the homeworking routine.

the Ivy-Lee note is still alive
