Challenge 02 Results
Another week has gone by, this means we have a look at my challenge as well. I really, really, did not succeed as much as I’d hoped in the beginning, here the rough data:
- One small drawing [x]
- Blogpost [_]
- Anki every day [_]
- Chapter 01 practices in Anki [_] (Almost done)
- Chapter 02 practices in Anki [_] (Not started)
- Chapter 05 Vocabulary [x]
- Chapter 05 Extra- Vocabulary [_]
- Grammar Chapter 05 [_]
As you can see, it’s really not much.
I could be disappointed in myself, I could be angry. I could feel like a failure and lose hope to ever get things done. But I won’t go that road. I can tell you instead what I did this whole week:
- Finished two games on my backlog
- Met two people I haven’t seen in months
- Had delicious dinner
- Had a busy week at work
- Met new people
- Had rainbow hair for a weekend
- Cleaned up the apartment
- Met my financial consultant
- Had a Cthulhu pen and paper sessions
It’s clear that we all have sometimes other stuff to do.
I guess it’s all about urgencies, AND what you ‘get’ from going after your goals. Of course, I want to achieve a certain level, of course I want to go step by step towards the shining, bright medal of awesomeness. Sometimes we just must do a reality check. If it doesn’t feel right, why stress yourself out? I don’t have to be in Japan in two weeks, so I don’t need the additional stress.My first priority is: being happy.
But I have to be honest here. I could have done better, that’s true. If I am too tired in the afternoon/evening from work and need some leisure time, why not learning Japanese in the morning? As I am writing this sentence, it’s 6:30 a.m. and it’s alright. So, maybe another part of the challenge should be getting up earlier in the morning, so that I can fulfill more workload. 🙂 It’s definitely worth a try and will form a habit that grows over time. My absolute goal would be to get up at 5 a.m. every morning. I did this several times before, and it’s AMAZING how much time you have on your hands then. Well, that’s all for now.
So, I will take this time and spend it on the stuff I want to get done then 🙂 Have a great week you all!
