Weekly Statistics (28 December 2020 - 03 January 2021)

 

Total Working Hours

I didn't expected to work this week, but end-up working more than last week. WTF is that... Life is so strange.

Proper Focus Expectations

I noticed that my average focus's goal for a week is way too high. It is currently set at 4/5, I'm going to set it to 3.5/5. This is much more realistic, my mind is naturally super explosive and agitated so if I achieve an average focus of 3.5/5 per week that's already a big win for me.

Shit...

I deleted my yesterday's notes by inadvertence. I don't have this week's statistics. I also fall into the trap of laziness and procrastination.

Naps

I always feel sleepy and tired after lunch, it affects my work when I try to push through it. I think I'm going to take a nap or just lay in my bed for 10 - 15 minutes after lunch in order to recover.
