Timeboxing. Never heard of it but sounds like some shit I need. I got distracted doing extra work this week to buy the dip. I should stick to my goals. I’m good on finances now but suck in organizational skills and time management. I had better organizational skills before crypto when I was living paycheck to paycheck. Help me Peetah, you’re my only hope.
All kidding aside. I really need to do this. I don’t manage my time as efficiently as a could. ADHD is not an excuse. ADHD is some bullshit. I have some work to do on my house, an engine I’ve been planning to put in a car for the last ? years, crap I don’t need i was planning to sell one eBay and a list that goes on and on. I would rather pay someone to help me out than have someone hold me accountable. That hasn’t worked out so far. I need to make use of my Outlook calendar. I need to find someone to keep me accountable. I have fallen into a comfort zone that has made me a bit lazy. I am doing fairly well because Bitcoin. Perhaps there needs to be a support group for lazy fucks like me that need some accountability in the BitcoinPub.
I’m all about Timeboxing this week. Writing down some shit now. Who wants to keep me accountable? This is some https://londonreal.tv Brian Rose shit.

Timebox to me means I work on what’s important first, instead of time consuming stuff that’s worth less. Having extra time left means I can go back and improve on it or verify my work since a project’s unknown variables have surfaced by now.

I can timebox just about everything from a DIY oil change to making trade decisions…

Yes! This is excellent!

Yesterday as I got off night shift from work (Rotating shift work), I wanted to do some pre-market research for the Nasdaq for some potential trades at market open, but i kept the window for 30min of trading because I needed to sleep and prepare for the next day. So at Premarket, I scanned potential set ups and watched those particular stocks to see if they fit my chosen patterns for quick buys/sell. After 30 minutes, the patterns were not there, I shut my computer down, and went to sleep. I structured the remaining day as follows:

Woke up 2pm(Central) to see any potential overnight stock plays for 1hr. Then got ready for work. Normally I end up not sleeping throughout the day and ruin my health and waste of efficiency.

finally catching up on this.

My time boxing goals are currently in a developmental stage. My goal is to see how long certain tasks take me and see if I can streamline them.

I need to find a way to not feel so exhausted from 8pm to 10 pm after the kids go to sleep. I am planning on setting 30 minutes aside for a workout routine to get the blood pumping so I can power through the evening.

Really looking forward to trying this out in a more intentional way. Several months back I spent a couple weeks keeping a time journal, tracking how I spent my time each day. It really helped me to identify time wasters and helped me prioritize how I was spending my time. Unfortunately I have lost a bit of the prioritiztion/optimization I had. So I am going to do the time journal again but integrate time boxing into it this time. Really looking forward to seeing the results! :beers:
