3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
It has not been my most productive week! I squandered a lot of time on things that were interesting but unproductive, although I'm feeling that bad about it. In an environment so blissful as home is right now, nothing feels pressing. Nevertheless I intend to be much more focused next week and will place intention above preference.
The back third of the week is a set routine and one just goes with the flow of it. However it's an ideal time to sharpen up my attention. I have learned the crucial importance of being focused both internally and externally, so I will be ensuring it stays in the right place. This will then have me ready to get stuff done next week.
