Goals: Self-Mastery; enduring mental focus; maximize duration and efficiency of studying and research. Develop the ability to direct my attention at will and avoid distracting emotions, behaviors, and people, while maintaining friendships and social connections.
6:30 AM Sit every morning
9:00 AM Swim
10:00 AM GRE study with other students
11:00 AM research until 6 pm or later, if focus is strong.
9:00 PM light yoga, bedtime tea, turn off all electronics beside alarm clock
10:00 PM play recorded sleep-inducing meditation
Sit every time my mind wanders into a habitual process (for instance facebook) that is distracting. My physics studies are part of my practice, so when I become distracted from studying I will sit for 5 minutes in order to check the urge to distract myself.
I will enter this into a Google spreadsheet so that I can track my progress. Must have a method for tracking daily experiences.
