It’s a lovely Thursday here in NYC, and Day 4 of the 168 Hours Challenge has begun. Now that many of us have the hang of recording our hours, I think it’s time to start reflecting on them. Today, I’m asking two questions. First, what do you want to do *more* of in your 168 hours? And second, what do you want to get off your plate? (There is a great discussion of these questions going on over at the Facebook 168 Hours fan page, so feel free to join us there as well).
Today’s log for me:
6:40 – 7:10 – feed baby
7:10-7:25 – attempt, unsuccessfully, to fall back asleep
7:25- 8 – eat breakfast, some playing with kids, reading paper, dressing baby, etc.
8-8:20 – emails/FB
8:20-8:30 – phone interview for column
8:30-9:30 – work on column
9:30-9:40 – record National Review podcast
9:40-10 – email/FB
10-11 — buckle down and crank out column draft
11-11:20 – feed baby
11:20-1:20 edit column (plus occasional bursts of FB, email, and eating lunch in there)
1:20-1:30 – get ready for run
1:30-2:30 – run outside. Good weather for it. Decide to go a little farther than I originally planned.
2:30-3:10 – work administration stuff
3:10-3:30 – feed baby
3:30 – 4:10 – morass of email/FB/Twitter and dealing with financial stuff. Decide to make list of the most important things that have to happen by end of the day. Showering is on list. I kid you not. So is ordering an air mattress so brother has somewhere to sleep when he visits next week.
4:10-4:25 – shower, get dressed for event
4:25- 5:15 – working on webinar pitch, responding to interview requests (yay!)
5:15-5:30 – hair and make-up
5:30-8 – CRAVE event in Meatpacking district. Networking. I am so trying to get better at this sort of thing.
8-9:30 – Jasper time. Playing, snuggling, reading stories about sea creatures and looking at family photos.
9:30- Jasper down, tying up loose ends here, hopefully to bed before long.
Would love to see some more time logs. We’ve got a great discussion going on Facebook – I guess people are more comfortable posting there!
