80/20 - student project

Inspired by Atomic Habits writer James Clear on how to 80/20 my work, I wrote out the 10 things I spend the most things on:

  • Side-hustle
  • Job hunting
  • Social skills/dating
  • Working out
  • Social media
  • Video games
  • Youtube
  • Planning/tracking
  • "Busy work"
  • Music

Of these, working on my side-hustle and social skills/dating is what will truly drive my results in terms of what I want out of life.

I've started to time-block my calendar this month so each day I'm filling out at least 80% of my day with things I'm doing in my calendar to get better control of my time and priorities.

The biggest time sink for me at the moment is Social Media, so I've added a "Social Media Hour" on my calendar where I can check my Social Media platform. The other 23 hours they are blocked on my computer and phone.
