How am I doing on my Goals?

On Tynan

So back in January, I wrote out my 7 goals for the year. It's been two months, so let's see how I'm doing :

1. Become FULLY polyphasic

I'm close on this one. Many days I go perfectly, sometimes if I have nothing to do I oversleep and then skip some naps during the day. I'm actually pretty satisfied with that, as I'm only sleeping 2.5-4.5 hours per night, I'm never tired, and can always count on being awake early and staying up late. I'll keep pressing to be more consistent, but I'm satisfied with where I am.

Early On a Sunday Morning

On Where Pianos Roam

 

It's a chilly Nashville morning as I write this even as soft sunlight pours through my window.  As I've mentioned in several of my recent posts, I've been doing a whole bit of de-cluttering in my life.  This has mostly applied to various physical spaces like my closet, bedroom, car, and so forth; however, I've also been trying to do so in the way I carry out my day.

For most of my life, I've been the kind of person who has had a gargantuan to-do list.  It would be an endless stream of tasks connected to multiple facets of my existence.  After one item would be completed, another one would roll right on in.  I've been thinking about this a lot over the past few weeks, and I've decided that, in spite of the productiveness, it is still not all that gratifying.  

It feels no different than doing the same thing over and over again.  The actual tasks might all be different from each other, but the intention is all the same--just to get something done.  For me, this has become monotonous especially because, in my own life, there is no end to all of the things I could be doing.  

So, I've decided that from now one, excluding (and occasionally including) time-sensitive tasks or ones that affect other people, I am only going to focus on getting two or three important things done each day.  I've actually been doing this now over the last two weeks, and I really love it.
