I am only about half-way through the first day of my experiment but I already felt the need to write about it.
I wasn’t sure the best way to go about logging my time so I just decided on filling in a blank notebook. Every time I have started a new activity I note the time and what I am doing. Not sure if this is the best way to do it, I might try pre-writing all the times tomorrow and filling in the activities throughout the day.
The major thing I have noticed though is how conscious I am of my time now that I am forcing myself to write down all my activities. For example, I had to take my younger sister to dance class at 11:30. She came downstairs a little before 11, normally I would just close whatever I was doing and putter around for the next 20 minutes. However, because I was thinking about writing it down I decided to continue doing my online school work. Usually I wouldn’t have given it a second thought but because of my time log I realized that I had a perfectly good 20 minutes to make use of.
Tomorrow I will try a pre-written schedule divided into 15 minutes increments and report back!
Wish me Luck 🙂
