My first week of 2021? Bleh.
I did what I promised in my yearly planning. Health became my first priority, and the first thing I did every morning.
The trade-off? I lost my early morning hours of focused work and productivity.
As a result, I didn't get any big task (that requires deep work) done during the week. I consoled myself by completing dozens of small tasks and ad-hoc work that came up. All those tasks were important, but I feel accomplished when I complete a big task (like writing a long-ass and high-quality guest blog for a huge publication).
I'm changing my routine next week. Based on Sankalp's suggestion, I will wake up at 6.30am and work till 10.30am. My workout and health time will be between 10.30am-12pm, followed by lunch. This way, I can get my big task done each morning AND focus on my health.
I'll report back next Sunday on how things go!
