Over a month ago, I wrote about how I needed more structure to the way I worked and that my time management needed a bit of an overhaul.
Well I thought I was going to get off my ass and start a sort of scheduling system, but things didn’t work out that way.
- I realized I’m actually a workaholic anyways. It’s not like a lack of scheduling is preventing me from doing things that should get done, so there’s no complete need for a schedule considering I’m going to be doing plenty of work of my own accord anyway. (Really, this was somewhat evident to me before I said I needed to work out scheduling, but it still more recently occurred to me just how much of a workaholic I am.)
- I realized that a lot of the reason these types of schedules won’t work out, and why I hadn’t already implemented them, is because of my current living situation and the fact that I can’t control when I can do things per say. There’s still a bit too much out of my control for me to say “at this time I’ll do x, y, and z,” because other things will delay those things from happening. I still have to be at least a little flexible at this current moment.
So I’ve shelved the idea of setting myself a proper schedule/routine. Until then I’ll just keep working away at all hours of the day, taking breaks whenever I’ve driven myself nuts to relax myself a bit, and hope that I can at least stay sane enough to keep plowing through the workload as I have been for the past few months. This quite honestly shouldn’t be too bad now that it’s summer and there’s nice weather to take advantage of.
What I can and really should be doing at the very least in terms of scheduling is regulating my sleeping. I really need to start heading off to bed earlier, like 1:00 AM latest. If I can get that habit going, I’d be pretty happy.
