Recently, I have been complaining about time, the lack of.
But what I realised is that it isn’t because I don’t have enough time to do the things I need, want or expected of me but it is because I didn’t prioritise my tasks properly.
I have several responsibilities on my hands right now and I’m constantly juggling between all of them. And because of this, I’m constantly getting confused about dates, times, locations and the like.
Furthermore, it felt as it these tasks were also taking up my studying time which later on eats up my sleeping / alone time (which I truly need to stay productive).
Multitasking, that’s it. I have been multitasking, never spending enough time to be in DEEP WORK which is crucial. Thus, causing the problems I’ve stated above.
I didn’t prioritise my tasks properly, always mixing and changing about between tasks whenever they come up. Note to self: not good.
I need to have a keystone task that will keep me grounded and onward towards balance. I think that would be my studies.
In the last semester, I made it a goal to study at least 5 hours a day. It was a mild success (a success, nonetheless). That was my keystone task as anything I do during the day is towards reaching and striving that goal (which kept me focused and neat).
I think I will still keep that goal in mind this semester.
Priorities. Priorities. Priorities.
