Making a checklist turned my random wandering into an actual routine. I can see what I have forgotten. I can add new things as they come up or shuffle the order if it’s not working quite right. I can take something off the list that I don’t want to do any more. 9 years ago
I created a checklist a while back listing every tiny little thing I need to do between getting up and leaving the house. There are 40+ things on that list! Of course some of them are trivial and obvious (“put on glasses”), but just having them written down in a prescribed order has helped a lot with making my morning peregrinations less random.
I think there’s still room for improvement so I’m not declaring this done yet. 9 years ago
I’m not a morning person. My brain is running at about 32% efficiency when I first get up. I find myself walking around the house doing my morning ablutions in basically random order every day. It’s the same stuff every day, but it hasn’t settled into an optimal routine on its own in all these years. Conscious effort seems to be required to address this problem. 9 years ago
