New Years Resolutions?
« on: 12 January 2020, 09:48:29 PM »
Hey,

Out of curiosity, did any of y'all  have any new years resolutions? If so, what were they? How are you doing with them? Generally, how's the new year been so far? I hope it's going well for all!

Also, if you do choose to hack VC in whatever method, I can get your IPs from the server log, and with more coding knowledge than most people here, I could easily and more importantly legally hack you back. And if you hack VC, I'll be cross. Don't try it.

That is all

I love the yearly reminders that Jan has much bigger balls than I do.

Me and my friend are doing weekly goals and holding eachother to them. Kinda like accountability partners.

So, for the start of each week we write down our goals for eachother (and ourselves), and during the week we check in, and at the end of the week we say where we succeeded and where to improve on. It's a good method, because now you're not alone in trying to use raw willpower in being productive.

Also, if you're doing school or work fulltime, it's very easy to lose track of other things you want to do, so this really helps with that.

That's pretty clever and sounds fun, how did you guys come up with/decide you should do that?

It is fun, and really helpful. It came about after many, many conversations about productivity and letting a week slip away with nothing done. Conversations about the failures of the school system, the strange nonsensical aspects of the society we live in, and especially about what life really is about and how to best spend your time.

I feel that writing a list is an excellent way to keep yourself on task. Especially when you wake up in the morning and your brain feels very unfocused, it's really easy to just start scrolling thru the internet mindlessly or something and suddenly you've not been productive for hours and hours. If you have that list, which you should write the night before (or the start of the week to a friend), then when you're feeling unfocused, you just look at it and you already have guidance (that you already gave yourself during a moment where you were focused). So you start the list, and it feels good to get things checked off.

He also brought up the idea that it's easier to stay focused when you feel accountable to someone else other than yourself. So that, combined with the list idea, created the accountability partner idea.

If you sometimes struggle with being productive, try these ideas!

I do a similar accountability thing with going to the gym. My friend and I go together, and if I try to skip or make excuses she holds me accountable and knows I would feel bad skipping and leaving her by myself, and she will use that to encourage me to go, and I do the same for her. Getting someone to help hold you accountable for what you do is definitely a big help to do something you're otherwise unmotivated to do. I only wish schooling had more support systems to help kids do their work :(

This is a good way to get you to the gym. Usually with working out, the hardest part is starting, but once you get going it's good, so this accountability thing you have going is perfect because it gets over the hardest part.
