If you’re wondering, yes I’m still doing that Quality Day thing. Have no idea what I’m talking about? Here’s the write up from last year:
As some of you may know, I’ve developed my own productivity system where I shoot to do 5 habits every single day. I track whether or not I complete each goal; if I complete 3 of the 5, I consider it a “Quality Day”; if I complete all 5, I consider it a “Perfect Day.”
(Read more about the system here: How to Keep Your New Year’s Resolutions).
My 5 goals for 2013 are shared below, along with the number of days I completed them.
- Wake up without hitting snooze. 283 days (77.3%)
- Publish something for HTW. 289 days (79.0%)
- Exercise for at least 20 minutes. 305 days (83.3%)
- Eat at least 4 servings of fruits or vegetables. 290 days (79.2%)
- Reconnect with someone. 360 days (98.4%)
I finished with 365 Quality Days (100%!), with 183 of them being Perfect Days (just over 50%). That said, I dropped in each of the categories except snooze and reconnecting, so there’s still plenty of room for improvement.
I’ll be continuing the system in 2014 but switching up the daily habits. More on that to come (maybe).
