I find that if I continuously wait it out with low effort that it is too long a duration. I will pay attention to the time left and at what time I get bored. Then adjust the time accordingly. So for meditation I originally had 20 minutes. I found myself getting bored and falling out of it around 12-15 minute mark. So I shortened the duration of the habit to match. In reverse when I want to do something longer I add 5 minutes to it and see how that feels. It's whatever works to have you want to succeed in that habit and get you into it on a daily basis. You can always add and remove time. There is no right or wrong here. Just what you need to succeed.
- How could I effectively use my time without laziness
- I need this to be so simple. And struggle to now what to include and what to leave out. Too basic and they seem pointless. Too detailed and they seem to take up too much time I could be focusing on other things… any suggestions on how to prioritise and discriminate between tasks to include and task to accept as given.
- Do you write the small and mundane tasks like cook, go for a walk etc on your list?
- What do you include in your most basic routines- what is something that simply must be done no matter what?
- Do you write only a few tasks on your to do list, or do you write everything that you have to do and then pick the top three or so to get done today? I’m never sure which approach is most effective.
- Do you check and adjust your to do list throughout the day? How do you remember?
- Do you ever feel like you write to much stuff to do for one day?
- Do you write down your routines too or skip them since they are ‘routines’?
- Which order do you accomplish your tasks? Due date? Importance? Fun making it?
- what are some things you always put on your to do? do you find that having the same activity at the same space everyday makes you more likely or less likely to actually do it??
