No pushes to github today. I failed. It honestly feels bad when I don’t commit something. I guess it’s true- anything that you do for 14 days straight becomes a habit. When it becomes a habit, and then you fail to do it, guilt sets in. This is exactly what I wanted. My behavior has changed. Now, it’s apparent to me subconsciously that coding is important. Though today was a failure, my spirit has won.
One other thing that I’ve done- I’ve started quantifying my time. In a days time, you don’t realize how much time is wasted on unfruitful things. I’m reading up on productivity hacks, and the #1 killer of productivity is doing unproductive stuff. Check this out:
I’ve started using RescueTime , a productivity app that allows you to track the time you spend on your computer. Simply put, this really gives me quantified feedback on how I am truly spending my days at the computer. If I’m wasting my time, this app will tell me. I think this is really going to help me to focus on what’s important, and get away from letting my mind wander.
Nevertheless, according to the rules, I failed. Tomorrow is another day.
