Welcome to Positive Masters where we develop our mindset and passion projects!
Every day we have a finite amount of energy that we can allocate to our deep work and deep studies. For me, after I finish writing my morning journal and action plan, I like to dedicate my first power hour to my highest priority. This is usually work that is very important and takes a lot of thinking, reasoning, and/or creativity.
My second, third, fourth, and other priorities are scheduled later. I do my best to schedule my light work in the late afternoon when my energy level is lower. Exercise, especially running outdoors gives me a second boost of energy. Since I get tired during the late afternoon to early evening, that is when I like to do my exercise. In the evening, I do another round of work. The difficulty of my work depends on my energy level. Sometimes deadlines will force me to keep working on the hard stuff, so I plow through as best as I can. I try to wind down by 10:00 PM unless I have pressing deadlines.
If you want to study and work with me, click on one of the "Positive Masters - Study & Work with Me" YouTube videos. In it, I start off with a motivational mindset clip. Then we get into our studies and work using the Pomodoro system of timing our study and work sessions and then timing a break between these sessions. To set the mood, there is soothing background noise such as lapping water, rain, wind blowing the trees, lofi songs, cinematic music, and other instrumental music. It's a fun way to keep ourselves motivated to work on our passion projects. You got this!
