Reviewing Your Schedule

Clearly I have no schedule for this blog right now.  I'm okay with that.  Someday I would like to be consistent, but today is not that day.

I am a big believer in schedules though.  Schedules and routines make our lives a lot easier.  We only have so much energy to put towards decisions, so why waste it when you don't have to?

It turns out I've been scheduling my days since I was 18 (thank you, old journals, for allowing this insight).  I used to write down what I wanted to do the night before, and then when I went to bed, I would compare what I said I wanted to do to what I actually did.  I don't know how often I hit my targets, but I bet I had more off days than on days.  Still, it kept me going.  These days I still plan my day, but I don't review it.

I'm going to change that.  I'm way off my mark today, but that's fine.  I can regroup tonight and try again tomorrow.  I'll give it a steady go for two weeks and report back.  I may not report back daily, but you will see all 14 days of this experiment.
