A really good day, every section of which was devoted to concentrated Spanish learning — or providing the immediate logistics for it.
It could have been even better if I'd:
- Gotten to sleep and woken earlier — resisted '1 more epsode/chapter'
- Had songs and conjuction exercises to hand
- Had the courage to go out for a ride
The latter is forgiveable — given that this was the first realistic opportunity I've had to complete the new, simplified, routine.
I wanted to prove to myself that the routine was basically viable — before improvising. As things have turned out, I'm pretty satisfied by overall productivity today.
So, if sessions 1-3 go well tomorrow, I'll ride in session 4 — barring 'acts of god'.
I'm quite convinced that having resources to hand, and therefore almost knowing the full scope of each task, has provided a bit of a 'breakthrough'. Definitely worth the trade-off — of losing some improvisational creativity and some opportunity for cross-fertilisation.
- Ticks — right activity on time
- Crosses — not done to schedule
- Hyphens — not applicable to currrent routine configuration
