#100DaysofSkillShareProjects - Day 20

I really learned a lot in this short bite sized class. I'm always trying different was to improve my productivity and getting the most out of my day. 

In the past I would make a daily accountability schedule. (This was what August looked like.)

This is a close up example of what I would write. Writing out a list of what I want to accomplish each day is great but I need have a weekly schedule. This class showed how important it is to actually see what your week looks like.

Since my daily/weekly schedule relies heavily on how long it takes me do an illustration, I've been timing myself. Now I know how much time I should block out to do a drawing.

A Blackn'WhiteDrawing takes me around 2 hours:

A #DailyDigitalDrawing (headshot) takes around 3 hours:

A Yellow Mellow Monday drawing also takes around 3 hours:

Now that I know how much time it takes me (on average), I can make my first weekly schedule on Google Calendar. (This schedule starts next week, Oct. 23rd to Oct. 27th.) I scheduled time not only for my illustrations but also for the 100 day project I am currently working on.

The app HabitBull looked interesting so I'm going to try that out.

Also, on an unrelated note, I noticed that Mr. Karnjanaprakorn scheduled time to meditate. My favorite app for meditation is an app called Calm.

In conclusion, this was a great class and I'm going to use everything to increase my productivity. Having a weekly schedule will really help me. I don't know why I didn't do this before.
