A new daily schedule

I wanted to create a bit more structure around my week days to increase productivity. I mostly want to structure when I take breaks. Here’s the schedule I came up with:

7:30 am - 8:30 am Workout 1 hour
8:30 am - 9:30 am Shower/Coffee/News 1 hour
9:30 am - 12:30 pm Work 3 hours
12:30 pm - 1:30 pm Lunch + TV 1 hour
1:30 pm - 3:30 pm Work 2 hours
3:30 pm - 4:30 pm Coffee + TV 1 hour
4:30 pm - 5:00 pm Clean 30 mins
5:00 pm - 7:00 pm Work 2 hours
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm Dinner 1 hour
8:00 pm - 11:00 pm Work 3 hours

One thing that I’ve realized is having the tv on actually helps when you’re working along, otherwise it gets too quiet and depressing. My plan is to have white noise or pod cast running in the background.

Good Progress with UserBit

Got interview editor to work well in offline mode. I want to make sure interviews can be conducted without net connectivity. I also discovered a caveat that I will blog about regarding persisting data offline.

I also fixed a few issues with the editor and added the ability to attach a description with each node on the sitemap.

Chat with Terran

Had a good conversation with terran today regarding his process. More data to synthesize.
