W-Log #1

8:00 am

Hello to all you wonderful people!

I’m starting a new category of blog posts called W-Logs. They are, by definition, WordPress Logs. They will be my new calendar of productive tasks for every day moulded into an achievement/failure framework. I am so very excited about these!

Let’s face it. We’ve all tried post-its, diaries, to-do notes, planners, and paper lists for planning out the tasks for the day. I’m trying this method right now, after having failed in every other one.

All hail IISuperwomanII for her Vlog channel which gave me this idea!

Today’s List

  1. Office
    • Task 1
    • Special task 1
  2. Diet and Workout
    • Workout at home
    • Food prep
    • Diet shopping
  3. Writing
    • W-Log #1
  4. Home
    • Laundry
    • Clean room

Since my biggest problem with sticking to my plans is laziness, I’ve decided to make my plans themselves simpler. Easy, don’t you think? Na-huh.

Everybody goes wrong with that one. They think they are deciding such few and easy-to-do tasks. But, really, those are complex, depend on other factors, and simply drag themselves along into the next day. Thus, messing up the next day as well. The trick is breaking them down into small, SMALL parts of tasks which are rationally completable in one day.

Let me see how my trail run goes today. Bye for now! I will finish this post at the end of the day! Cross your fingers for a good result!

Great day to you guys!

9:16 pm

Okay, I’m back! Let’s see how I fared today.

  1. Office
    • Task 1 : Poor execution (-5 points)
    • Special task 1 : This hasn’t even been started (-10 points)
  2. Diet and Workout
    • Workout at home : This was done perfectly (+10 points)
    • Food prep : Also, perfect (+10 points)
    • Diet shopping : Missing one item from my list (+7 points)
  3. Writing
    • W-Log #1 : Check! (+10 points)
  4. Home
    • Laundry : Could have done more of it (+7 points)
    • Clean room : Double the planned amount of cleaning (+10 points) (+5 bonus)
    • Shopping : Got a few things for my room (+2 bonus)

Total = 61 – 15 = 46 points

Not too bad for a first day. I want to see lesser of a negative score and more bonus points.

Lesson of the day : Break your tasks down into parts for a more satisfying outcome.

See you tomorrow!

Love,

Priya

PS : If this is really weird to people who think they are intruding upon a stranger’s life, please ignore this category of posts. I will still update my regular posts in this blog.

PPS : If you are like me and want to live your organised life goals, watch out for more tips I will add in these posts.

PPPS : I will not elaborate on my tasks, especially those for the office, because, you know, there has to be some boundaries.
