Monopaulize Challenge: Day 24
After the amount of hours I ended up working to complete “last minute assignments” at work, I decided to not show up at work and work from home for half the day instead.
What Time Did I Get Up
Got up at about 8 am today with my mind filled with the amount of work that was piled onto me yesterday in the late afternoon.
What Did I Accomplish
I had devoted the last two days to complete writing an article for my homepage. For today, and the next remaining 4 days, I wanted to write 10 secondary articles for this site. This would average out to be 2 articles per day.
I made sure I completed 2 articles today to keep me on track. I ended up writing two 700-word+ article for this second site.
I also ended up listening to two podcast episodes which gave me some inspiration.
I spent about 4 hours researching and writing those 2 articles and another 1.5 hours to listen to podcasts.
What I Learned
I eliminated any possible distractions while working on these 3 articles and learnt that I am way more productive when I do so. I will try to keep it that way – no emails, texts, facebook, or even music while working on these projects.
What Was Challenging
I felt fatigued from overworking last night and it definitely affected my work output today. It was challenging having to stick to the goals when all I wanted to do was sleep in.
Goals for Tomorrow
The goals for the next 4 days will be:
1) Research and write a total of 8 articles for this second niche site.
Seems straightforward? Let’s see how I do on this.
Till the next update.
