[Another repeat from a daily beemail. It’s now been 2 weeks and I can confirm that it’s hard but worth it!]
@bee and I decided to try a new thing last night. The problem was that we never managed to chill the heck out in the evenings because we’re always scrambling to dispatch beemergencies from when we tuck the kids in to when we need to sleep ourselves.
Also, as brilliant as blog.beeminder.com/waterfalls is, it’s so fussy and daunting to set those waterfalls up.
So we thought we’d try setting all our deadlines on every single one of our goals to 5pm! By doing this all at once (and telling everyone) we’re making it impossible to forget about. Instead of scrambling before bedtime we have to scramble before close of business.
There are plenty of things that can only be done at home but that just means it has to become part of our routine to do those the night before they’re due (or scramble to do them before heading to / starting work in the morning (or scramble to get work stuff done early and go home in time to do them)).
Oh look, it’s almost 5pm so I have to hit send on this now. My last beemergency of the day woo-hoo! Today was kinda intense but great!
