Since October 24, 2014, I’ve been using a couple of Moleskine notebooks to track my daily activities, my vitals, and my master to-do list. I noticed that in 2015 and 2016 I just stopped recording my daily activities from early February to sometime in April. I’ve been chalking that up to a seasonal downswing that I go through each year at that time.
This year, however, I didn’t have that gap in my recording. In fact, it was during this period this year that I recorded my longest ever streak of days where I recorded full marks on my checklist.
I think my ability to stick to the checklist this year was partly fueled by the desire to see how long that streak would last. There have been some days since I broke that long streak that I’ve not completed my checklist, but they’ve been few. For the most part, I’m back in the saddle and currently on a new streak (albeit not a long one yet).
I’m kinda proud of my ability to fight off the seasonal dip in my mood and activity. That shows I am capable of at least doing the bare minimum of what I should be doing on a daily basis, and it’s time to stretch for some new goals. I don’t know what they’ll be just yet, but I hope to be able to tell you what they are soon. As for now, I’m just going to keep on keeping on.
