Weekly experiments backlog

🌱 Seedling1 min read

This is a backlog for potential weekly experiments. They're split into 3 categories:

  • (+) indicates the experiment adds a new activity and takes up more of my time.
  • (-) indicates a change in a current habit that should theoretically free up some of my time.
  • No suffix indicates the experiment has no impact on my time usage, or that it could go either way.

I organised it this way after reflecting that I have a bad habit of saying I'll do more than I can actually do in the time that I have (see Four Thousand Weeks as this is basically the central thesis of the book). So if for one week I do an experiment that adds to my schedule, the next week I'll aim to do an experiment that counter-balances that.

  • Walk my daughter to school (+)
  • Use Moonlander (+)
  • Do some birdwatching (+)
  • Spend time using iNaturalist (+)
  • Don't look at Twitter (-)
  • Drink tea instead of coffee
  • Keep strictly to sleep times
  • Use Reddit more intentionally
  • Stop using weasel words when I write
  • Start to read at 10pm every night
