Actually doing planning right after waking up!

I have this sleep questionaire I need to fill out right when I wake up anyways (that's those answered questions above), and I figure it's a good time to build good at-home habits.

This should also help with my poor morning impulse control wherein I instantly go to twitter, reddit, or youtube and waste way too much time for no real value.

Another thing I'm trying today is applying proper end-goals to the chunks of time devoted to tasks. I think without a goal to that chunk, it's too easy to get distracted and get nothing done or get the wrong thing done.

Whilst I have a normal sleep-schedule, I might as well leave my laptop at work. Which I did. Which means I can't do a proper end-of-day review now that I'm at home.

Don't even have a created end-of-day review checklist for at home.



Eventually, I will.

Forgot to fill out evening sleep questions. Let's do it now.

Evening sleep questions:

  • Did you nap today? How many times? When? How long?
    • No
  • Did you consume any medicine that you do not take on a daily basis? What? How much? When
    • Yes, 3 mg melatonin at 1700 (I'll count it as a daily thing starting today)
  • Did you have any caffeinated or alcoholic beverages today? What? How much? When?
    • red bull, 80 mg caffeine @1010
    • coffee, 60 mg caffeine @1030
    • diet coke, 46 mg caffeine @1310
    • shot of whiskey @1650
  • Please rate your average sleepiness today on a scale of 1 - 10. (1 = wide awake, 10 = very sleepy)
