[Updated 7/2/19 ]
Lose 1.5% body fat – exactly 1.5%
Complete morning routine 60 times – didn’t do this. got in the habit of getting up an running straight to the gym. want a little more space between waking up and obligations to install a mourning routing
One 3+ minute standup comedy set – Did 5 mins at an open mic in June. You can see my set here.
Complete 75 exercise sessions including Family First Fitness challenge – gave up on F3 in favor of Orange Theory Fitness as I like having a trainer and people around me.
Nevermore than 30 minutes of time unaccounted for on the calendar – this was hugely impactful on my productivity. even when I wasn’t being productive I made myself log the activity so I can see how much I was getting off task
25 FOMO affiliate prospects – only did 5 as it kept falling behind things that made me money. Success here is a volume game so I will do a campaign to a set of leads in Q3
Review all linkedin and Twitter connections and reengage relevant people – reconnected with a bunch of great people. want to make this a recurring habit
complete two online courses – nope. got 15% through one and didn’t make it a priority
Install and update website to including services page
Never more than 30 minutes of time unaccounted for on calendar
Three blog posts (not including goals and recaps) + writing about underutilized marketing and bad business models –
$250 NEW affiliate MRR – didn’t give this the focus it needed but going to kick this over to next quarter as it is still a priority for me.
Finalize 1 LP commit – don’t have ink to paper but definitely made strides towards this goal
30 job applications – got to about 20 but don’t believe # of applications is a great proxy as all of my professional opportunities have come from networking not formal applications
Guest lecture in class (or scheduled by end of Q1) – speaking in my friend’s HS class in May on “$0 businesses” that will overview low hanging money making opportunities high schoolers can pursue today
Push Website Updates and rebrand – didn’t even touch this. not a high priority compared to other things on my desk.
1 3+ min Standup Comedy set – have enough material for three minutes and a location near my home. Will be done in Q2
60 exercise classes – 66 classes including Crossfit, HIIT, OrangeTheory, Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Spin, Barre, Bootcamp, Rock Climbing, Yoga and more
Log 60+ days fully in calendar – 74 days. was very focused on logging how I spend all my time and it is something I will continue
Journal 60+ days – have three journals that I have been using each for a different purpose.
- Productivity Planner – This one is action oriented. Each day asks what the most important task of the day is. I like that it forces me to focus down and prioritize. I know that if I do the most important task each day I’ll be successful. I try to reconcile the journal before dinner and check what I’ve done as well as make plans for tomorrow. Especially working from home it creates separation between work and fun.
- Daily Stoic Journal – This one is more soft and emotional. Asks me stoic questions each day about where my life is going. Almost nothing to do with productivity but gives me important perspective.
- Q&A a day 5 Year Journal – This is just fun. Asks a random question each day and it is my second year doing it so I see how my answers compared to from last year.
With these goals I kind of did “set it and forget” meaning that I wrote them start of the month and didn’t continually come back to them. Out of sign out of mind. For quarter 2 i’m going to make a habit to come back to the list of goals every sunday. Now just to think about Q2.
