The alarm went off while I was lying in Bed. For the first time in two months, I resisted the urge to press snooze and jumped out of bed. It was 5:00am and I had to be out of the house at 7:00am. You’re probably wondering why I would give myself two hours to get ready. The answer to that question is, the morning is the foundation to my day. If I don’t start my day organized, the rest of the day won’t be organized either. So after feeling just a little too unorganized for just a little too long, I woke up at 5:00am to get my day off to a good start. I am going to make it one of my goals to give my self enough time to breathe in the morning, because we all know how stressful rushing is.
When it comes to my project, my Gant chart has been such a useful tool. I’ve used it to stay on track more than I’ve used any other tool this semester. I have made song writing my main priority. As of now, I am on track. I check in with my Gant chart regularly and check off the things that I have done. Having a visual representation of my progress has really shown me where I am, and where I want to be. I have one more song to go, and I cant wait to check off that box on my Gant chart.
I have also found writing down the things that I need to remember to be useful. It’s a way to get down important thoughts, without stressing about having to remember them. Every day I have a list of the things that I need to do. It is easy though, when looking at those lists, to relax a little too much and say “Ill do it later”. When you say that, you’re running the risk of procrastination, that will lead to stress and rushing. I hate rushing, so I want to create good habits. I want to do things right away, and it all starts with not pressing snooze in the morning.
