Exams are coming up!
Yes, I do have finals in about 3 weeks and I am far behind where I needed to be. I did some Beeminder in beeminder.com/marcmarti/study but that wasn’t enough and I derailed over and over after a short trip I took.
Now I have paid for the Beemium subscription and pledged that I am going to be paying 90$ if I derail (and that’s quite a lot for anyone, more for a college student ) for another goal which you can follow at beeminder.com/marcmarti/youbetterstudy.
I am trying to plan any possible futur inconvenience that might make me derail. This is impossible in nature, but some things can actually be avoided. So… let’s try to do this
If someone has any idea or any comment to make, feel free - I will appreciate any accountability.
Do you guys and girls generally have a reward for achieving a goal?
I am personally thinking of buying a really really nice piece of clothing (or two) from Wool and Prince if I accomplish my goal.
That way is either spending on Beeminder or spending on W&P.
I just need to work to get the reward!
I’ve played with rewarding myself for progress in different ways, usually in time I allow myself to spend on entertainment. I like the idea of doing something special for yourself once you accomplish the entire goal, tho. I’ve never done that.
This is a kinda update or a note to myself. I am thinking about limiting the options you have to accomplish what you want. This has been said multiple times, but is still important - if you find yourself being scattered or having no time to do what you want to do think: what’s the things/projects that I really want to bet on for this period of time?
And then take massive action, as much as possible. I am doing this myself.
Have a good day.
PD: I will edit this if I have something else to share later during the day.
