Follow-Up Mid-February Procrastination

On Tuesday I posted about my procrastination, and how I was needing more structure in my evenings.  I made a list of goals for the evenings for the rest of the week.  Let’s go over the results:

Tuesday:
I will call this day an overall success.  I was happy with the overall results of day 1.

  • I will make my breakfast & lunch for Wednesday and pack it.  Done!
  • I will not watch any TV or play games on my iPad.  Mostly good. (I watched some TV while eating dinner.)
  • I will sort the garbage & recycling (garbage day is Wednesday this week).  Done!
  • I will fold my laundry and put it away.  (leftover from the weekend)  Done!
  • I will lay out my running clothes for tomorrow.  Done!
  • I will be in bed by 10:30pm.  11:15pm

Wednesday:
This day did not work out as planned, and I didn’t make it home until 9:45pm, then had to make and eat dinner… overall I think day 2 was a failure.

  • I will make my breakfast & lunch for Thursday and pack it.  Mostly good.  (still had to pack my veggie snack in the morning)
  • I will not watch any TV or play games on my iPad. Total Fail. (The good ol’ 90s classic Hackers was on TV when I sat down to eat my dinner at 10pm… )
  • I will start laying out the stuff to pack for my weekend away. Total Fail.
  • I will start on preparing my documentation for my professional goal #1.  Total Fail.
  • I will be in bed by 10:30pm.  Midnight.

Thursday:
Another failure.  But, I was aware of my failure and it made me feel slightly guilty as I lay on the couch and fell asleep…

  • I will make my breakfast & lunch for Friday and pack it.  Mostly good.
  • I will only watch the Canucks game on TV. Total Fail.  Ended up watching a series of home shows… whoops.
  • I will pack my car for my weekend away. Total Fail.  I had to pack this morning.
  • I will lay out my running clothes for tomorrow. Done!
  • If there is time, I will continue working on my documentation for my professional goal #1. Total Fail.
  • I will be in bed by 10:30pm. 11:15pm

Friday:

  • I will write a follow up post on how I did on this list this week. Done!
  • I will write out a to-do list for my Sunday evening when I arrive home from my trip (to get next week started on the right foot).  Not done yet, but will try and get it done before I leave on my trip.

So, all in all, not really that good… but I think I am becoming aware of my weaknesses (the television-couch combination) and will make myself a similar list for next week and see if I am more successful.  Fingers crossed.

How did everyone else’s week go?
