Day Eight

Summarize your day in a paragraph

Woke at 2am, worked on showclips until 8am- finished it entirely and exported it. Created and used the weekly method for problem/solution selection. Skimmed over classes to see what homework/reading assignments I’d have. Finally did a proper Night method- my inbox was cleared. Did onenote weekly method.

Tasks unfinished:

None! Did everything.

If you have notes from the day, fill them in now

sadly, no I didn’t do this. I’ll do it tomorrow!

What happened today that worked really well?

Closing laptop & skype really REALLY seems to help for 1000 words. That’s the only place I applied the Do method- IRC is really distracting, and lacking Skype communication fixes a lot. Magnesium Citrate- enough said.

What went poorly?

Was tired, so tasks took a lot longer and less got done overall. These were… really easy tasks. Didn’t take a nap, so I won’t be able to do the 9pm-2am thing. Will try to get in bed by 9:30 though. Didn’t actually do the Do method except for the 1000 words. Trying to write this up at 8pm left me… spacey because I’ve gotten low sleep.

How could you have done better today?

Coulda napped and applied Do method for other things.

Review your tasks (via todo list or however else you keep track of what needs doing! This system doesn’t dictate that.)

Review your goals and goal projects for the next steps (On your user page!)

State what tasks, projects, or exercises you intend to complete tomorrow. (Improve a skill perhaps?)

  • Math  ch 1 reading & hw
  • Cs lab 1
  • ENGR hw 1
  • Econ reading
  • Divinity original sin 2 – get friend on that 4 pack thing.


note your impressions including changes that may make it more effective. What’s hurting efficiency? Where could it be bolstered?

This is difficult to apply because it requires actually buckling down and doing the work. It also is heavily related to things like skype and having more than one window open at a time. Removing distractions is very important. Leaving only my main window open will ensure focus rather than distraction.

Habit:Daily Method

note your impressions including changes that may make it more effective. What’s hurting efficiency? Where could it be bolstered?

I feel like the habit portion could be improved significantly- I don’t look at the bulleted list at all, so I think if I move most of that to the weekly method it’ll become significantly more effective. I’ll

How are you going to do better tomorrow?

Gonna buckle down, close everything but my main screen, get MITs done and out of the way, and then relax for the rest of the day. Not worrying about a thing. Will write wordpress at 8pm, and then go to bed around 9. Will also do thinking sessions after each task.
