Remember this homework assignment
? I started it in February, as soon as it was assigned, and still haven't finished it!
I think my problem with the assignment is that I take my habits for granted and, often at least, don't give them much conscious thought. Also, lately, with working two jobs, one of which seems to be laid off more often than not, the habits I've developed play out differently from day to day (with my schedule), and from week to week (ie. whether I'm on both jobs or only have one to worry about).
Anyway. I'm still not done
the Habits homework. However, I think I found a trick, in my net browsing, that might help me finish the assignment! I just read the PMARCA Guide to Personal Productivity
. Among all the ideas to improve productivity, there is are a couple of related tips that relate to Habits:
* Create a Habits list - for the repetitive tasks you do at work or in your home; the things you do more by rote than by conscious thought.
* Simple To-Do List - make a list of three to five important or significant things to accomplish today (or tomorrow, if you like prepping the night before) on a 3x5 index card or in a planner.
* The Anti-To-Do List - on the reverse of your T-D, write down everything you accomplish in the day, as you finish tasks.
I think the Habits List will be extremely useful for completing the February homework and I'm really looking forward to getting started on it - tomorrow. :D
