Today was day three of the experiment and the one thing I will say is that when you are looking to make long-term change one of the keys is flexibility. It is not that I am inflexible but I tend to do well with structure and goals, I like to hit my targets. Ray thinks I have control issues and he is, of course, right. So one of the things that I am planning to do when I review this list of mine is to evaluate each activity on a 1 to 10 scale, 10 being the highest score, on two simple questions:
- How much long-term benefit or meaning did I experience from this activity?
- How much short-term satisfaction or happiness did I experience from this activity?
On to day 4.
