For today, I felt like I did alright in my virtue completion, though not excellent, despite having an overall good day which is somewhat confusing. I think it’s because I succeeded in virtues that I already prioritize outside of this project, which is somewhat throwing myself through a loop, so that will need some getting used to. However, I felt like I had a definite improvement on cleanliness from yesterday, possibly bumping it up to a 6/10. I followed Luke’s advice from earlier and I felt like it really helped with preventing distractions from my desk space. However, I still felt at times, not the most efficient, putting my industry and productive downtime virtues at a 4/10 for today as I got distracted by my phone easily, and justified it as my rest which was not exceptionally fulfilling. The virtue of tranquility did not really come up as any nervousness or frustration was very small and not substantial enough to make an impact (so putting it at a N/A out of 10 possibly; I may need to redo my ranking system). Temperance was alright though (putting it at a 5/10), as I continued my SAT preparation, but maybe not on other ongoing long-term projects.
I am interested to see how my virtues improve, fail, or fluctuate as this blog continues. Good night!
