I. What's new?

A. Highlights

  1. I noticed that the most of my time timetable difficulties are caused by my tendency to become trapped in attention mode for too long and disregard my schedule.
  2. Switching to a 25-5 Pomodoro period helped me get the responsiveness I desire.
  3. I also evaluated my projects and divided most tasks into subtasks that ought not to take more than 25 minutes.
  4. I'm going to try to get up earlier again.

B.  Rules

  1. Follow Daily SOP at the start of the day
  2. A task/subtask item on my checklist that takes more than 25 minutes to complete should be broken into smaller subtasks before being executed.
  3. Wake up no later than noon.
  4. Declare suspension of the system when something goes wrong, i.e., explicitly declare it in my journal.
  5. Write thoughts in my journal every Pomodoro break.

II. Review

  1. Battleboard
    It's working, and I like how I can see my objective and progress all at once.
  2. Be a morning person
    It lasted me two days. I start missing the night and stillness and eventually give in. I'll try again this week, but this time, I won't quit within two days.
  3. "I'm only allowed to code unboundedly from Wednesday-Friday"
    This may no longer be essential for my new rule.
  4. "Follow Daily SOP at the start of the day"
    I'm consistent with this.
  5. "Wake up no later than noon."
    I only succeeded in doing this after making an effort to wake up early for two days.
  6. "Declare suspension of the system when something goes wrong, i.e., explicitly declare it in my journal."
    Still failed. I'll try again.
  7. Write thoughts in my journal every Pomodoro break.
    With this, I made good progress. in particular when I switched to the 25-5 Pomodoro.
