  • Video Games: 11H 40m
  • Code: 6H

Below is where I tracked my information. Scroll up/down and left/right to see more.

I also kept a food journal this week and recorded what I ate.

 

Productivity Goals

This week I’ve coded more than I ever have before. It’s becoming easier and more routine for me.

I read So Good They Can’t Ignore You by Cal Newport and Why People Fail by Simon Reynolds this week. Unfortunately, I read much less than I usually do. Allergens outside mean I can’t walk and listen to audiobooks. For some reason, I did not listen to audiobooks while playing video games or mundane tasks which I usually do. This caused me to lose out on 11 hours and 40 minutes I could have put towards listening to an audiobook.

Health Goals

This week I met my goal of eating at least one healthy meal a day.

I kept eating unhealthy snacks despite my goal of only eating healthy snacks. There really is no excuse for me not to eat unhealthy snacks as there are plenty of options: fruit, vegetables, cottage cheese, nuts, and yogurt. I’ll have to brainstorm more healthy snack options.

One strategy I’ve used to try to eat healthy snacks is to pair them with something I typically snack with. I often eat a peanut butter sandwich for a snack. Instead, I could eat a half peanut butter sandwich with vegetables.

Sleep

I did not do well with keeping sleep goals. Friday when I put up my phone by midnight I fell asleep about two hours after putting up my phone.

I need a better way to destress before bed. I’m considering trying deep breathing but need more ideas.

A good consistent sleep schedule is the key to good consistent productivity.

Possible Future Goals

In Why People Fail, Simon Reynolds lists several routines you can add to your life. Here’s a combination of my favorites he listed and some personal ones I’ve thought of:

  • Clean up/organize 10 minutes after waking and 10 minutes before sleep
  • Write/blog for 3o minutes a day
  • Exercise every day
  • Start taking vitamins
  • Daily Visualization/Goal Setting
  • Practice Gratitude
  • Reach out to old friends
  • Read industry news/magazines every day
