Simplify Your Day Week 3

The last couple of weeks, I've been focusing on limiting what's in my Nozbe next actions for the day.  I made a list of what is important to me (below), and every day I make sure that the only tasks on my list correlate with what's important to me.  I also make myself eliminate at least one non-essential item each day.

I've tried to implement a block of time in the late afternoon to batch my daily tasks, but I keep putting it off, because I'm working on something else.  The only big downside there is I'm not planning my next day's tasks the day before, which then forces me to do it in the beginning of the day.

Next week I'm supposed to focus on single-tasking.  I don't have a big problem with that.  I'm actually pretty good at getting into flow-states while working, and crossfit offers me the same in-the-moment experiences.  I'll probably just refocus or replan how to implement batching my daily tasks.  Maybe I'll shoot for after lunch.

Important Things

  1. Improvement: Physical and Mental/Skills
  2. Money
  3. Humor
  4. Companionship

Simplify Your Day Week 1

I never got anywhere past reading what the plan was for the Simplify Your Day month.  I started going through the prioritization stuff, but nothing else.  I'll try to catch up on that stuff this weekend and start next week.

No writing or meditation.

Still eating perfect paleo.  Only tea (no soda).  Maybe a few too many almonds though.

Procrastination is killing me.  There's definitely some non-work things that I need to be doing.  Hopefully I have a very productive weekend.
