Tags:
Goal #1 was to be on time for things. I certainly didn't *succeed* at this, but I think I got a lot better. Not being early, but giving myself enough slack, and leaving when the slack had been somewhat eaten into, and much less often being already late and thinking "I can't face deciding to leave, I'll procrastinate some more".

Goal #2 was to do a tech project. But March was busier than I'd realised, mostly with thronescamp and with seeing lovely people. So I managed to install Android Studio and run the default "Hello World" program (yay, it was really easy), but not add any of my own code to it.

I also had a lot of overdue logistics and chores, which I did *some* of, but some is still hanging over me and I want out of the way.

But I feel better for tracking how well I did, instead of just knowing I need to do all these things at some point. On the one hand, it's depressing to realise how few months I have, and how little time I'm managing to make. On the other hand, I'm clearly making MORE time than when I didn't really plan it.

I don't think of you as a person who's late. I don't think you've ever been late to anything you've arranged with me, which is probably why.

*hugs* Thank you, it's v good to know it's not being a problem for people I meet up with most.

I think part of my problem with perfectionism is the difference between "perfect" and "good enough" is really vivid and the difference between "good enough" and "terrible" doesn't feel important. Even when what matters to other people is usually the opposite, so I can't easily tell when it's a problem or not.
