Slicing Weeks in Half

So... I changed my organization a bit maybe ~2 months ago to work from Monday to Friday and have empty days Sunday and Saturday and it doesn't work. What I noticed is that I work well from Monday to Wednesday, then start to lose willpower on Thursday. This is too much for me to work five days in a row without any breaks in between. I'm going to change back my organization to something a bit similar to what I had before.

New Organization

Workdays

  • Monday
  • Tuesday
  • Wednesday
  • Friday
  • Saturday

Physical Exercise Days

  • Tuesday: Chest + Shoulders
  • Thursday: Back + Triceps + Biceps
  • Sunday: Legs

Meditation Habit

I'm going to put back a 1-hour meditation habit in the morning for each working day. What I noticed is that it's much easier for me to work when I meditate in the morning.

Breathwork Habit

I will do breathwork on Thursday and Sunday.

Other Things

I will start with this organization next week. However, I will also have to think about finding time for:

  • Journaling.
  • Reading.
  • Reading this forum.
  • Watching Leo's videos.
  • Relaxing / Contemplating.

I wanted to work at night but was too tired (probably because of bad sleep again) and ended up in a procrastination loop of doing random things on the internet. It's too late for journaling and I'm already exhausted, fuck.

The progress metric is non-sense. Progress mostly goes with focus and progress depends on the time that I spend on a task. I prefer to get rid of it, this is too confusing and too difficult to track.

I want to get back to where I was a few years ago when I was highly focused and highly organized. I changed the No social media rule to No distractions until 8 PM which means literally nothing until 8 PM except Eating, Working, work-related relationships, and a bit of empty time.
