The Most Valuable Day

I slept in until eleven thirty today. Three months ago that would qualify as an early morning, but I"ve shifted to becoming an early riser, and now that feels late. Usually I have my writing done by twelve, but it's one thirty now, and I'm still working on the second sentence. Okay, third now. I don't feel particularly motivated. Maybe it's that I just finished some big SETT things yesterday so there's nothing pressing there. Maybe I'm a bit disappointed that I slept late. I brewed a new tea for my morning pot this morning, and it's not very good. Maybe that has to do with it.

Today is the most important day, I remind myself. Actually, yesterday was the most important day, but it's over. Today is the next most important day, making it the most important day I have left in my life.

What makes today so important? Well, I'm as young as I'll ever be again. I work every day to sharpen my mind, but I'm fighting nature, I think. I have the most time ahead of me as I'll ever have, making today an excellent day to start new habits, and an important day to keep old habits. Writing every day is one of those habits, so I have to write this. It would be an insult to those even-more-important days in my past where I started this habit, if I didn't.

Every day I'm alive, I risk death. Not in a great measure, but I live in a big city, I drive a motorcycle, and weird stuff happens. If I lost my legs tomorrow, how would I think about today? Wouldn't I think about I should have used them when I had that chance? It's sort of like, after you break up with a girl, you think about the last time you were together, and you think that maybe you should have made it a bit more special. It was your last chance, after all. Today's probably not my last day with my legs or my brain or my eyes, but you never know. Weird stuff happens.

Key Habit Today


Hi Sebastian, I'm working on my time tracking and It's really great. I've been doing it for several weeks now and I'm in the middle of extending it.

My question is:

How do you use the following item in your time tracking? "Key habit today"

I'm not sure what do you mean by this in practice. Perhaps few examples would help. What do you write there and how do you act on it during day.

Thanks Simon
