Observations on Large Productivity (Week One Review)

Slightly over a week ago, I committed to having the most productive 90 days of my life -- and sharing it all with you publicly. I wanted to make huge advances in my core projects, some large personal gains, and -- crucially -- I wanted to come out of this cycle feeling the strongest and healthiest of my life. So, more production than ever before, and being alive, engaged, and energized at the end of it instead of burnt out.

What's happening after one week?

Well, there's good and back. First, there's a strange "I'm being watched!" feeling which slightly increases neurosis/anxiety... and accountability. That's been the most unexpected thing -- a feeling of, "Is this an activity I'd want to own doing publicly with my time, after making a big massive commitment?"

I don't like or dislike it, per se. It's a bit odd. Actually, ok, I like it. (Most of the time!)

What else?

Days 33 and 34: Thriving

It's amazing how good best practices are, and it's sadly too easy to get away from them. I planned Day 33 the night before:

1. Plan Mongolia logistics 2. Shopify 3. Review goals 4. Do weekly review, set tasks for next M-F 5. Blog post 6. Gym 7. Reading

Note it was only 7 objectives, and only 3 of them were "hard" or otherwise not automatic. That works much better -- trying to go overboard on too many things often leads to none of them getting done. Here's how the day went --

Awake: 10:15AM (8 hours)

1:15PM: Set all travel plans for Mongolia, bought flights, figured out train timetables, etc. (180 travel-planning)
