JFW plan, week of Feb 3 2020

Filed under: Jacob Welsh — Jacob Welsh @ 6:01 a.m.

This week I'm trying a new plan format, in search of improved balance in providing enough guidance to keep me on track and attending to the things I say are important yet enough flexibility to accommodate the surprises of both the outside and inside world.

Daily template

Morning (6h):

  • 0.5h warmup
  • 0.5h pleasure reading
  • 2h log + blog reading + responses, or errands
  • 0.5h breakfast
  • 2h write for blog + break
  • 0.5h flex

Afternoon (5h):

  • 0.5h lunch
  • 1.5h focused project work time
  • Starting 2pm: 2.5h project work + #o chat window
  • 0.5h walk or exercise

Evening (5h):

  • 2h dinner
  • 1.5h flex
  • 0.5h blog prep
  • 0.5h pleasure writing (journal)
  • 0.5h winding down

This indicates 4-6 hours for project work on typical days. Subtracting 4 for weekly review and planning and 4-6 for social time gives 18-34 in the week. (No wonder 40-hour saltmining doesn't leave space for much else, huh.)

Required project tasks

1. #trilema catchup: 8h (not sure how much is left so I'm aiming for a high estimate; I believe there's about a week where I'm filling in gaps from partial reading, after which I followed fully.)

2. Review feedback and prepare for Feb 13 + 14 presentations: 10h (someone else stepped up for Junto the 12th so I'm off that hook for now.)

3. gbw signer development: 10h

Other notes

Same plan as last week for gradual adjustment of sleep cycle, as the late Tuesday night threw off the last try.

  1. It actually looks more balanced, so here's to it working in practice too!
