…just gonna leave the shame here. I accomplished the calendar schedule at least…yay Trello.
The other two…started and then didn’t get even close to the finish. That there is 100% my fault. I decided sleep this morning was more important as well as Twitter. Level of self control today was about a 3/10. I didn’t watch any Netflix, but I also didn’t accomplish anything. Sure I can try to convince you that I did a lot of things, which I did, but none of these prevented me from lettering or using Illustrator styleframes. Might have delayed it, but I had the time and opportunity.
With that I’m going to post some tips and blogs on how to be productive and motivate yourself so that I can shame myself into productivity tomorrow. Cause today’s goal list was a disaster. Till tomorrow friends, hope your day was more productive than mine!
Motivation is Overvalued. Environment Often Matters More. | By James Clear
This piece talks about the way we view environment in our productivity. Whenever something bad happens like being late we are quick to blame environment like traffic. However, when we’re on time or accomplish a hard task we owe it to our great skills like I did great in the interview because my skillset is amazing. The article outlines a few ways to change our mindset about how we view environment and bring about change to create a more productive setting. This is the piece that inspired me to bring my giant monitor upstairs and actually use it.

The 1 Step Plan for Super Productivity | By Jocelyn K Glei
This piece does a great job in describing a method in strengthening your willpower by waking up early. A method in which I’ll have to try since I’m barely managing waking up at 9 AM every day. Thank you Emily for making me post the time I get up via Snapchat every single morning. Without that I’d sleep till noon every single day.
