After 4 years of grad school, I still don’t know what defines a “successful” day. No matter what I do, how much I read, write, prepare for classes, teach, grade, attend talks, I always say at the end of the day that “I’m so tired today, and yet I didn’t do anything!” I’m also wondering when I internalized the idea that resting, exercising, reading for fun, cooking, or doing any of our basic human needs, is being “lazy” and “unproductive”. All in all, these “fun” activities only take perhaps 3-4 hours of the day compared to how much we work but somehow they are always too much: I’m spending too much time watching a series, too much time cooking, too much time sleeping. And too much time drawing and writing this post 😖🧐 So, what is your definition of a successful day?
