my new goals and my new life

I feel pretty bad recently, and it occurred to me that what made me feel bad was not the world, it was me, myself. I have to do something to fill my brain with energy, so I add a new task today, to program for my own project for at least 3 hours, apart from other coding and stuff.

Though I program almost every day, I never set a goal for myself. This is really a problem, sometimes I’m just being lazy, which puts my project off again and again. So I decided to put an end to this bad behavior. There’s one thing that could achieve it, which is set a goal, a task, forcing myself to finish it every day.

I reduced my running distance from 4km to 2km, because I figured that 4km is too much for me. I didn’t run in a very long time, I have to do it, it’s a very efficient way to keep me being energetic.

This is my everyday task list

11 24s P1D 10h review the words in anki 8.6
12 24s P1D 10h add 20 new words to anki 8.6
5 2min P1D 11h play the guitar for at least 30 minutes 8.58
6 2min P1D 11h read 5% of the book in my kindle 8.58
14 - P1D 11h program for my project 8.58
6 tasks

It would take about 20 + 15 + 30 + 30 + 30 + 180 = 305min ≈ 5 hours, A lot to be done every day, I will see if I can finish all of them.

Then I thought about another thing. Though I created a task to program for at least 3 hours every day, I should have a goal for each hour. I made a list of what I should do about the project right now. Once I finish one of them, I check it.

  1. Rename deck
  2. Delete deck
  3. Add word
  4. The click event of show answer button in review page
  5. The whole front-end of the review page
  6. Time schedule for Again, Hard, Good, Easy

There are only these goals for now, I will add a new list if I finish all of them on the above list.

What I want ultimately is the sense of felicity, from the bottom of my heart.
