Just three more weeks to go before my official first try of 12 Week Year ends.
If you’re new to my blog, I’m following the 12 Week Year to achieve my 2021 goals. Its objective is to shorten the year (52 weeks, 365 days) to 12 weeks to be able to do more. At first, you may think it’s counterintuitive, but when you understand the reason, you’ll realize it has a point. Think about Parkinson’s Law: work expands to fill the allotted time. The more time you have to finish a task, the longer it will take you. If you want a detailed explanation of the concept, you can read the full blog post here.
I finished 4 out of my 5 to-dos for this week!
All I got to do for this week:
- Scheduled my doctor’s appointment
- Sent invoice to clients
- Wrote a blog post: How to Focus in The Age of Distraction
- Scheduled my freelancing account’s content for this week
I didn’t get to:
- Write Week 9 post!
Challenges & Solutions
I’m writing this post late! I was supposed to write this on March 6 (Saturday of Week 9), but instead, I spent my time aimlessly. I watched a Korean series on Netflix, Dr. Romantic. It’s been weeks (or even months) since I binge-watched something on Netflix. Even if I knew that I should be doing something productive like updating my blog, I was lying in bed, watching Netflix. Made me feel guilty!
I forgave myself and decided to write Week 9 post during Week 10, but guess what? I didn’t work on my blog throughout Week 10 (March 7-March13)!
Blogging is scheduled from 6PM to 8PM, but I just rested for the week. To be fair, I worked two days on my blog to start a draft but didn’t get to finish it.
Right now the solution I implemented is to cancel my Netflix subscription. My boyfriend and I decided to take a break from Netflix because we didn’t get to make the most out of our February subscription. I was busy with my SkillShare subscription while he was busy learning new things from YouTube or playing mobile games.
I’m not sure how long we’ll get on without Netflix, but we’ll survive I’m sure!
