This is a little update of my life about how I'm doing.
The first week of 2014 (this is from Monday 7th to Sunday 12th) it was pretty tough. I worked hard in my job and didn't get results I was hoping for. And worst of all, I hardly studied at all.
This week I'm doing better, I learned from mistakes last week, and I started studying more often (not so productive as I would like but at least I'm doing some progress).
Two days ago, I read a very interesting post about focusing on days.
Here is an excerpt of the post:
It takes time to do anything worthwhile, but thankfully, we don’t need it all in one chunk. So this year, forget about the year as a whole. Forget about months and forget about weeks.
Focus on days.
The day is the only unit of time that I can really get my head around. Seasons change, weeks are completely human-made, but the day has a rhythm. The sun goes up; the sun goes down. I can handle that.
The post mentions a Jerry Seinfeld productivity tip: get a calendar and mark a red cross for each day that you complete your daily goal. Then you just have to keep a chain of red crosses.
My current goals are studying, improving my English, blogging and floss, among other things.
After reading the post I printed avery basic calendar and put it on the wall. And today after studying for my exams and practicing English I finally drew my first red cross in the calendar.
I was looking for more challenges in my work and to become a better student. As a friend of mine said, be careful with what you wish for because it can come true.
I have to do a lot of work over the next two weeks and I have to really focus on my studies if I want to pass the exams, so the next two weeks are really important for me, I have to focus and put in a lot of effort to do both work and studies well.
This week I was feeling pretty tired after work, so (as Austin suggests) the first thing that I will do in the morning is study, in order to just relax at the end of the day.
Let’s see how things turn out.
