Time Keeping 2017: November Review

This is my November 2017 Monthly Review, and the third review I've ever done. If you ever have any suggestions or criticisms, I am totally open to it.

Here is an Introduction to my Time Keeping Project if you'd like to know how it works.


The Pie Chart of my Life

The beautiful pie chart of my life, for November 2017. Breakdown is the average hours spent per day.


November highlights

time keeping 2017: nov highlight started new job

StarteD New Job

My new job has been really great so far, I've been excited to go to work every day. I'm learning so much, and I love what I'm doing. I think about work a lot though, sometimes I'll wake up in the middle of the night thinking of new things to say to customers (I work in sales haha...)

 

Parkour

I've made a little bit of progress in parkour and have learned some cool new moves. I feel like I'm finally able to do some of the things I thought were freakishly hard at the beginning. Still some way to go but I'm happy with my baby steps there. :)

 

Somewhat stressful

November was somewhat stressful what with starting work, some personal stuff come up to sort out, getting very little sleep quite a few days (I need mah sleep). So yes getting back into the work-swing has taken getting useful but definitely things improved by the end of the month. :)

 

productivity: off the charts 

Goal:

All weeks where amount of time spent on Productive Activities > Chill Activities.

Productive Activities (e.g. Website, Work, Exercise, Learning...)

Chill Activities (e.g. Socialising, Music/Reflecting, Entertainment, Internet...)

November Outcome:

100% of weeks where Productive Activites > Chill (vs 100% in October and 25% in September)

Reflections:

Okay this goal is actually ridiculously easy to achieve now that I work 40 hours a week. It's also crazy to see HOW productive I get. Now reaching 35-40% of all my time being productive is easy, whereas before starting working, it would actually take SO much motivation to reach 30% productivity. 

December Goal:

I guess maintain this high productivity level now that I've reached it haha. 


2017 GoalS

Parkour: Trained 5+ hours / week

November Goal:

Train 5 hours / week

Outcome:

Hours per week = 8.8 hours (avg)

Learnings

A move I learnt, called double fly-through's (because I am flying through double vault boxes hehe)

  • Parkour remains high if I parkour at least one of my days off, and then occasionally before or after work shifts

  • Motivation was high because I have a parkour buddy

  • Best sessions were 3 hours at parkour gym. I did start to bludge a bit with "quick sessions"

December Goal:

  • 5 hours / week: One 2 hour session at parkour gym after work + One 3 hour outdoor/indoor session on day off

 

Work: off to a good start

Time Keeping Monthly Review November 2017: Work-related

November Goal:

Start out on a good foot and figure out how to balance everything in my life with full-time work.

Outcome:

I think I started out alright, I definitely realise I'm not a great salesperson by nature haha. But I started to learn a few tips and tricks and started to feel more confident talking to customers! :)

December Goal:

Chill out, be more efficient, settle into team. 

 

Website: Failed miserably

Website Posts - Nov 2017.jpg

November Goal:

5 hours on Website Posts per week

Outcome:

  • Hours per week = 1.7 hours (avg)

  • Put out a post = 1 out of 4 weeks

  • Quality = 1 High / 3 Miss

Learnings:

  • Website definitely fell off the tracks with the focus on full-time work, parkour and socialising

  • Completely stopped doing 1 post / week. Very disappointing. :(

  • When I was at home, and COULD HAVE worked on website, motivation was low as I usually felt tired or wanted to just bludge (likely due to being so switched on for work/parkour)

  • Honestly, being realistic, I don't think I can fully balance full-time work, parkour, website AND socialising, especially in December which is a social month. I should probably just write shorter posts. Having to write big posts that require a lot of effort demotivates me from doing it.

December Goal: 

  • JUST GET 4 POSTS OUT EVEN IF THEY ARE SHORT / IMPERFECT POSTS. I don't care what you write about, better to get them out and keep the flow going than do NOTHING!!!!!


See you Next month!
