- Ideal day breakdown: - 8h sleep - 2.5h daily chores - 1.5h exercise (including travel, if any) - 7h work - 7h rest - Within rest: - Do or suffer: things that must be done or will have some unpleasant consequences - There is usually some mental stress, anxiety, associated with these - Ironically, these don't often have a hard deadline/urgency attached to them. They just lay low and creep up on you. - eg., buy pepper spray, secondary back up of documents (in resilio sync), pet registration, etc. - Life (us): things that need maintenance, planning, and organization - eg., buy new headsets; stuff going on at B-904 - Life (parents and sisters): things that need maintenance, planning, and organization - eg., Dad wants to buy new printer; A.C. broke down; plan Alka-Aakash trip; plan Goa trip - Life (other loved ones): things that need maintenance, planning, and organization - Fulfilment: things of skills and creativity - slow progress, but compound payoff - this is best made part of routine - eg., - Leisure: unplanned, no-deadlines, fun stuff - includes socializing, and time spent with Chhavi - Alka-Aakash trip does not file under this. That project is all planning and organizing. - painting with chhavi - reading for leisure - TV - Notes: - No point in getting frustrated. This is life. Most of the time *will be* spent in maintenance mode. Make the best of the leftover time. - A category applies to a project, or an independent activity.
