Enjoy! (sorry, not what I said I would podcast about -- No S re-assessment will come next month)

Episode 82: The Clock & the Calendar, your Sword & Shield
Posted by Reinhard on 2024-01-31
Build habits by leaning on the clock and calendar rather than fighting against them. Beyond N and S days. Cutesy task phrases. Powerfully silly times. Calendar-First Tasking.

How few and precious they are, indeed. Good to be reminded of this from time to time.

I totally agree with you on the snooze button!

Dear Reinhard!

Thanks you very much for this podcast on the meta systems. I really enjoyed listening to it.

Going WITH the "natural flow" of the calendar makes the system so "sane" and easy to follow. And the use of a timer is so simple yet such a great help: since I use the timer for my study habit and my fitness routine it is much more consistent and therefore I have better, long term results.

I was wondering: do you have a name for your "getting up early"-System. A name that covers the whole habit?

I was also experimenting with weekly habits on special days. I guess this will take me more time and effort to really assimilate that: I work several different shifts in hospital and so does my wife. So rarely does one Thursday look like the other. It is hard to stick a habit to a certain weekday when there is no regularity - at least for me.

Again, thank you, Reinhard!

Looking forewarn to the next episode, all the best

Stefan
