Yesterday, I tried updating my server. How stupid was I, thinking everything will work without problems. It didn’t work. That stole me two hours of sleep and around 1 hour of time I could have used for more important things. And there are a lot of important things. I finally finished making my websites GDPR compliant (at least I hope that’s the case now), then there’s a lot of learning to do (exams are in less than two weeks) and also another project for university where it now happened, that my team mates weren’t reliable and there’s a lot of extra work now.
Yesterday in the evening, it took me only one moment to decide, that I’ll get up early today, although I had no lessons and not really the need to get up that early. But there were some things I had to get done though and my experience (and the statistics on Todoist) showed me, that I get a lot more done when I get up early. So I decided and I executed.
Today, I wished I had listened more carefully. While I was literally melting at university (due to the hot temperatures in Germany), a package arrived at home. It was the folding bike I ordered last week to reduce the time I need to commute. My plan is to go by bike to a bus station, take the bus and then use the bike for the last meters to the university too.
When I’m traveling with the train, I often see many people smoking at the train station. I find that very disgusting! Why are people wasting their health like this? I’m very thankful for my health, many are not so blessed. I always try to live a healthy life. I eat almost no meat, I mostly eat organic food, I do sports multiple times a week and I avoid alcohol. My motivation for this is, that I care about my health.
I was about writing a post complaining about failing with my new goals. But does complaining bring you any further in life? No! So I’m writing about my positive progress instead, because I did a morning run today and it feels sooo great… 😏 Today, I got up at 5 am. Yes, that’s really early compared to the times I got up over the last weeks, which was usually just 7:30, sometimes even 8:30.
