#62 A Chat About Time

Good Morning!

I sat down to write about what’s been on my mind the past few days and I ended up writing down my daily schedule which I guess sounds a bit odd, but when I make my own schedule for things it’s a really good idea to have what I’m supposed to do with my time planned out or else I’d just end up just entertaining myself all day instead of doing something productive.

Of course, sometimes making these sorts of plans is a futile effort because, well life happens, and other stuff will get prioritized. 

If time is our utmost finite resource, what we do with it should be very important and wasting time should be avoided at all cost. You need to be in control of your time to do that.

What is wasting time really though?  Is it just simply being lazy when you know you should be taking care of other things? Does the very experience of time make us who we are as individuals? Does it even matter in the grand scheme of things? As always, thoughts lead to questions and then those questions lead to more questions which eventually just boils down to the ultimate question of what is the meaning of life?

So yeah.  I’m not too sure what everyone else’s daily schedule looks like, but as of late this is basically how mine goes except everything I’m doing between 5 and 6:30 is compressed into the 7-11:30 spot because I don’t get to sleep on time which doesn’t let me get up on time.  I know what needs to be done about that I suppose…

What is most important to me right now?

All I want to do is start my day off right so this is what my schedule should look like.

  • 5-6:30
    • No alarm clock
    • Make my bed
    • Bathroom
    • Get hydrated
    • 20 Minutes of High Intensity Interval Training
    • Clean up
    • Good tasting coffee
    • Get inspired
    • Breakfast (on gym days)
  • 7-11:30
    • Creative work: writing, graphics, recording, editing, etc.
  • 11:30-2
    • Prep/travel
    • Gym/Training
    • Cool down / travel
    • Breakfast
  • 2-3
    • Chores
    • Get cleaned up again
  • 3-7
    • Money Making Time
  • 7-9
    • Social Time
  • 9-5
    • SLEEP!

After I was finished writing out this daily agenda, I wrote down “Is routine actually a good thing?”

The structure makes each day a lot easier when I already know what I need to do. For right now and for myself I’m going to say yes because it allows me to schedule in all of the little crap things that I don’t particularly enjoy, like chores for example.

If I know that these things have their timeslot they will typically get done; not always, but most of the time.  I usually listen to a podcast or a lecture while I work at these tasks, so it feels less like a waste of my time.

The one upside is that a looking at folded laundry and the dusted and organized stuff in my house makes me feel like an actual grown up.

Thanks for reading (or listening) and have a great day!

Running out of dishwasher supplies like I am?

Add it to the list. The Finish detergent with powerball works the best in my dishwasher, but I guess I can’t overload it like I want to. I remember it being a fun game or sorts to try to fit every single dish that was dirty into the dish washer. What’s funny is that it takes less time to wash the few dishes that won’t fit, by hand than it does to rearrange the dishes. The things that we learn as adults that take the fun away from everything.

Don’t forget the rinse agent so that you don’t get that chalky white shit all over your plates.

Spread the love
