Week 1 of my notecard system went pretty well.
It was eye opening to look at it after a week and see which habits were effortless and which habits were not.
I only woke up by 6am two times. What I concluded is I am a “two alarm” person. I need one set for an earlier time (5:40) and one set for the actual time I want to wake up (6:00).
One alarm didn’t work last week, but this week two alarms works wonderfully!
I did not do it.
Trying again this week, but honestly it will likely happen more when the kids start school next week!
Coffee Atleast 1 hour after medicine
I was about 50% on this one last week.
This week I am at 100% because we moved the coffee pot to the cabinet so there is no temptation for morning coffee.
So those are the habits I struggled with. Here are the ones I did well:
- Walking everyday and push-ups
- No grains
- Taking vitamins (added this midweek)
- writing (did 2 out of 3)
- Reading 30 minutes
- Low internet usage
- Bed by 10pm
I reminded myself that the goal is progress, not perfection.
But I am also aware of things that derail my progress. Removing obstacles (like the coffee pot) is the easiest way to ensure progress.
So I am in week two and feeling great.
Checklists always work well for me, so I am excited to keep improving with my notecard checklist!
I love this idea, I’m going to put it use myself. I live checklists as well. They are a great way to look back on your day and see what you e accomplished.
I love this idea, and will put it to use myself. I like checklists as well, because you can look back over the day and see what you have accomplished. I never thought about using it for a week and then looking back and see what worked and what didn’t. Great idea, thanks.
Liked your strategy. Sometimes it takes some thinking and planning to implement those new habits (those that don’t come easy).
