In April I had a full month practicing marking off each day depending if I deemed it to be successful or not. I spoke about this in my post Optimising Work Environment in the past.
In April I had 4 days where I deemed myself not to have a successful day. 3 of those were consecutive days where I was in a streak of not successful days and not feeling too great about things.
A day can be successful if I complete what I wanted to. In most cases it is work, but obviously I have rest days, where it’s successful if I rest.
I’ve found this exercise really quite beneficial, especially as I’m often looking at the X’s. It’s in my work environment and I see it when I wake up and sleep. I want to keep the streak going, and it also reminds me to stay on track.
I highly suggest you try something like it!
