Day 3 wasn’t great, but it wasn’t too bad either. That’s because I managed to complete my readings for the day, but I also wasted a lot of time. I had to go somewhere tomorrow, and that plan is now cancelled. So, I could afford to postpone some things for the following day.
That’s something I have to take care of in the future. I think forcing myself to go through with the tasks for the day, and then dealing with the free time when the moment arrives would be better.
Another thing to take care of, is the time I spend on my phone. I never kept track of how much time I spend on my phone, but I noticed that I had spent about 25 minutes replying to messages this morning. And this was before 8:30, the day had barely begun!
Now obsession with one’s phone is not a problem I have, but having noticed how much time I spent on it today, I will be more careful in the future.
I had no language exchanges today, so I spent most of my language time learning new phrases on Glossika. I also watched a 2-3 episodes of Narcos. That helped my Spanish but I’d be fooling myself if I believe it was 3 hours well spent. 3 hours spent actively learning new words and phrases using spaced repetition work much better than passively watching a series.
So these 2 mistakes, I have to take care of. Hopefully, I won’t repeat them again.
