Saturday mood is gone
9 hours of sleep. Well, I would like to know the reason for this excessive sleeping.
What I can do is try to decrease it in the next days.
Mood is back
Today I felt good.
Just as yesterday, I woke up and replied to the lecturer question about the UX course.
UX course is good
Next 45 minutes I spend talking with the lecturer about the overall experience of the course.
I wanted to make sure everything is as good as it can be either for the lecturer and for the students.
Turned out it was good. That’s what every designer would like to hear from people who use what they designed.
With the energy level being high, I started working on my design process.
Almost 4 hours later I had a polish gem which was pretty much ready for publishing.
You’re going to see it on the website by the end of the next week.
Content with the results of my work I chose to exercise.
I haven’t been working out for almost a month.
I even gained a little weight because of constant sitting or eating at the restaurant while traveling.
After the workout, I showered and did weekly planning.
Summary of week #007:
10 things that I’m proud of in the previous week
Spent some time with my girlfriend
Bought pants (I’m really happy about that!)
Finished the task regarding UX course
Managed to combine spending time with my girlfriend and working a reasonable amount of hours
Cooked something new (Seitan)
Planned trip to Copenhagen
Relaxed a bit by watching quite a lot tv series
Get my mind and feelings back on track after the information of ending the UX course project
Everything ends someday. Don’t sober over it. Rather look at what the project has changed. What have I learned? What have I experienced while it was on?
Look at the end of something like the beginning of something new – probably better (if you choose carefully).
What didn’t happen and why (be honest)
I didn’t map my design process (95% is done) and didn’t publish new content on my business home page (around 80% is done)
I was too optimistic that I can combine working for the client, spending time with my girlfriend and working on my business
I didn’t consult my process and other work with my girlfriend.
We were about to do it and suddenly there was no time to do it
Next week goals
- Finish mapping my design process
- Writing/ changing content on the business website
- “What we do” stuff
- “About us” section
- “Contact us” section
- Publishing new content on the business website
- Homepage copywriting
- My design process
- Finish up the blog
- Bio section
- About me
- Aligning the social media profiles to the rebranding
- Personal and business profiles
- Modify the personal portfolio to the rebranded communication
- Similar content to the business webpage
- Looked at the social media strategy and prepare for executing it.
- Try cut around 30 minutes from sleep time.
- It shouldn’t influence my energy level.
The previous week in few words
It was an interesting week. I spent with my girlfriend in Łódź, Poland. We watched quite a lot TV series, spent time talking and shopping.
I also finished a big task related to the UX course.
Next week in few words
Next week I’m going to spend at home.
My main goal for the week is to publish a new communication on the business and personal webpage and prepare social media channels to start executing social media strategy.
There is a lot of work to do, combined with the work related to the UX course but I don’t need to travel anywhere and I have the space for that.
That’s why I estimated almost 10.5 hours of working per day this week
Next week estimation
I realized that I didn’t publish my time estimations for the activities in the upcoming week. So this is the first time.
Plan for #050
Work on the UX course
Work on the rebranding and communication of my business
Copywriting of my design process
