So is this a new schedule update or a new schedule update?
Just pretend it’s either. It is a new schedule, and this is a new update.
Here’s the thing: I really like the new schedule. Here’s the next thing: I haven’t been able to stick to it for an entire day once since I set it. Not all three blocks for all three 2 hour sessions. That was Sunday. This is Wednesday.
Today I’ve managed to miss hitting the 2 hour goal for the first block (by 14 minutes) and skip the second block of time (1:00–3:30) altogether. I’m still okay for the third block to start at 6:00 and run to 8:30, so that’s good, but I really need to make up that second block, so I’ve planned to give it a second attempt at 9:00 pm.
If all this is true, why do I like this schedule?
- Because I really feel the need for structured work hours right now, while everything else seems to unstructured around me (and it is).
- Because it’s helping me rein in the time I spend not writing during writing time.
- Because it’s nice to have time where I don’t expect myself to be writing.
