In order to keep myself accountable, I do several things:
use aTimeLogger literally all the time (currently not doing this, but I may continue in the future), do one big thing every day, write in my journal and periodically revisit key life lessons. I’ve recently discovered the /now page movement and decided to do it myself, publicly stating my priorities and preoccupations for reasons of accountability and easier communication, but primarily in order to focus on the few things that matter the most to me (now). So, here’s me now:
I’m currently in Zagreb, Croatia.
About half of my time now goes to work (I work as a translator – French, Swedish, English, Croatian).
While I’m not working, I am:
- Training. I do Parkour and MMA, and I’ve recently started lifting (deadlifts and squats). I find that my knees hurt less and I jump farther when I do some heavy lifting throughout the week.
- Learning. My biggest focus now is to get better at programming, specifically Python. I follow the Exercism Python track and work with mentors. Other subjects I’m studying: mathemathics, physics, biology.
Some of my time simply goes to keeping my relations with people (and dog) I care about and some of my time goes to maintenance, cleaning, cooking, washing myself, meditating and so on. I’ll also occasionally play guitar or chess or a video game just to do something different with my brain. If you see me doing a lot of something that’s not prominent on this list, feel free to call me out on it.
