I know the answer to this question might be “You get to decide,” but I’m hoping to get a bit more clarity!
I’ve been trying to re-implement Monday Hour One since falling off the wagon due to the quarantine (or my thoughts about it!)
I am really struggling with feelings/thoughts that no matter what I do, it’s not enough or not optimized as the best use of my time. I feel like a feather in the wind with not enough direction.
For example, I’ve been journaling for many years off and on in the mornings. As of now in my Monday Hour One, I’ve been putting Journaling for the time period 5:30-6AM. I sometimes just write notes about what’s going on in the crisis. I sometimes do a formal thing where I write down the top 3 things I want to do, the thoughts/feelings that go along with it, any barriers, and a little pep talk to myself. And sometimes I write a journal to my future self/God/my inner wisdom.
Because I don’t give myself more direction than that, I’m left to decide what to write in the moment, which leaves me feeling like I’m not making the most of my time.
On the other hand, I’ve tried deciding ahead of time what to write, and I don’t know that that works well either because what I decide ahead of time to write might not be the best option in the moment.
I know this probably seems like I’m overthinking things, but it’s just one example of many throughout my week where I wish someone would just give me more direction or thoughts to consider to clarify things for me!
The descriptor words: enough, best, optimized
