On my train commute to worktown: since yesterday a warm pleasant wind has been blowing, most odd, the temperature is high (yesterday night it was 12° C). It feels so unnatural and worrying. Anyway, on to today:
I have been listening to the podcast How to jumpstart a productive day by Michael Hyatt. He urges to keep items in daily to-do list from 5 to 7 items. I bet, that way, the odds of crossing most of them off is higher. So I’ll try and keep my work-related list short.
BU application: draft project, turn applciation in by 1 pm
- Hallepaper: insert longhand notes, move passages following rearranged structure
- gym session
PRIN: read grant proposal and discuss feedback to B
- unpack suitcases
- open exams enrollment lists
- Halle paper: print the new version out and re-read/edit
[gosh, doesn’t this list look drab? uhm]
ETA: (keeping track of what interfers with this neat plan and what unexpectedly crops up)
- I had forgotten that a workshop, taking place this afternoon, needs attendance, in some sort of minimal form, maybe, go and this if it is as interesting as it seems
- I had forgot that I needed to turn in the title of a paper I’m going to read at a workshop for today, which I haven’t really had any will/inspiration to think about, will need at least to write an email of postponment
- wondering, is the 5-7 item list a mistaken trick after all? Onwards!
- proofread paper Lyon
