Monday Hour One Weekly Recap – Week #3

Read all of my Monday Hour One posts here

As mentioned in my last recap, I was going to include an hour of ‘no time’ in the morning before work. I am happy to report that I managed to do that every day except for Thursday (also the same day I forgot to buy ETFs and you will see why when you read what happened on Wednesday night here). I set a goal for what I need to do every morning and if I complete it earlier than expected, I would spend the remaining time working on 3DIAC or preparing breakfast.

The 1 hour ‘no time’ in the morning was as productive as I hoped for and it was also nice knowing that I didn’t have to study after work. This was actually one of the best weeks in terms of being on track for CPA as I completed Week #6 2-week ahead of schedule. If I continue this pace, I will have about a month to study for the exam end of June. I most likely won’t need that much time so late May/June will be the perfect time for me to work on other projects.

I expected to be done with Valerie’s book by now but I had been putting it on hold. It’s not fiction so I am in no rush to finish it and the content would sometimes make me pause and think as well. Regardless, I still hope to finish it this week.

My plants also didn’t go as well as I had hoped… maybe I am not meant to be a gardener. 🤷

What Would I Do Different Next Week?

All categories went relatively well so I think I would continue doing everything the same way. However, I will plan my cooking better as I found myself thinking about what to cook throughout the week. That should not have been the case as I had the ingredients for the recipes I wanted to try already.
