How To Stick To Your Weekly Schedule

This post is actually how I have NOT been able to follow my weekly schedule.
So this is really more of a confession of my failure to meet the above title.
Yes, I lied.
Last week, I was able to create a relatively jampacked (compared to my lifestyle before) schedule, filled with productivity and hopefulness for success in life. :P However, given the fatigue hangover from Anteroom Sessions, my Monday went down the drain as I spent the day recuperating. Then the rest of the week, I was busy with catching up on work, doing some preparations for the Community Creativity Camp that Punchdrunk Panda organized with My Masterpiece Movement and Yabang Pinoy, and I attended the Martin Lindstrom seminar at SMX (which I really promise to blog about very soon! I’m targeting to finish it either by this evening or tomorrow).
I think the lesson here is not so much as to compromise one’s schedule, but to create it such that it allows for such routine-disruptive though ultimately life-enhancing activities. The way I created my schedule at the moment seems quite rigid, and in the long-run may lead to burnout. :P So today’s learning really is about creating a truly sustainable weekly/monthly schedule.
I can already foresee that with the upcoming bazaars we’ll be having in November and December, there will be times when my initially drafted schedule won’t be followed. Add to that trips in both November and early next year.
So yeah. Weekly/monthly schedule, and consequently life plan, is pending reassessment. :)
