Unit 2 Time Estimate Activity
It took me about 2 hours out of 5 to complete this unit. I watched the videos in the main YouTube site to increase the lecturer’s speech pace. I sometimes paused to take notes.
In the first video, I stopped to install the Todoist app and compared that with the app I was trying to use, which is Google Tasks. I haven’t really used this one often but I would like to. I’m still using pen-and-paper.
Anyway, what got my interest was the idea to track most things externally and to use our brains mainly to learn. As a person who overthinks a lot, this reduced my worries.
In the next videos, here are the concepts I got:
- Consciously think about priorities
- The true stressors are,
- False self
- Ineffective communication
- No higher belief
- Prioritize based on your personal Eisenhower Matrix
- Don’t react to a problem, respond
- Use a linear, or parallel pursuit to efficiently complete a task
I am trying to use a 20-minute pomodoro time to get up my chair and walk around. Not necessarily a 5 minute break every time.
My priorities this year are:
- Review for my licensure examination. I wasn’t completely serious when I was studying at university. I didn’t have any plans at those moments to prepare me for this particular point in my life. It’s becoming a struggle. The stressors that are affecting me with this priority is ineffective communication and a false-self who is saying that I don’t have enough time to review in order to get my license.
- Inner Peace. I am increasing my physical activity by cycling and walking more since July 1st this year. It feels alright but right now, it still feels like a chore I have to do. I know I will regret stopping so I’m pushing through. I hope to achieve this priority to help me with my first priority.
To anyone who would want to give feedback:
- I would like to know how managing your time has helped you achieve mental clarity.
- How many months did it take you to integrate writing a to-do list in your life?
Have a Good Day everyone!
Have Fun Learning
