Journal.Kim —A Metasystem Experiment

It gets easier. Every day it gets a little easier. But you gotta do it every day, that’s the hard part. But it does get easier.
—Bojack Horseman



Hi, I'm Brennan! I created this website to provide weekly updates regarding my goals (systems) that I currently have on a website called Beeminder as a way to keep myself accountable, as well as a place for general draft writing. For more information on the theory behind this idea, please check out the following links where I have written extensively about this: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

Fifty-Seven: The Year Ahead

Posted: April 9, 2021
Week Fifty-seven! It has been an especially boring week for me. I’ve been doing perfectly fine on all my systems, no derailments or derailment-adjacent scares, and also nothing really feeling all too easy. I’m mostly just taking time to do some reflecting–I have a blog post due soon that lines u...

Fifty-Six: Weasel Headaches

Posted: April 2, 2021
Week Fifty-six! Last week, I made things easier for myself by enabling weekend breaks for a lot of my goals. So, I figured this week I’d try to balance that out by enabling weasel-proofing on a bunch of goals! Including /poetry, /github, and /fitness. I don’t really enter fake data the way I use...

Fifty-Five: Tracking Nutrition II

Posted: March 27, 2021

Fifty-Four: Tracking Nutrition

Posted: March 19, 2021
Week Fifty-four! Another standard week. For starters, I created /nutrition and archived /foodlog. I stopped using Noom after my free-trial, as it didn’t really provide much value. (except for having a “coach” hold you accountable, I might create another thread looking for an accountability buddy ...

Fifty-Three: Future Akrasia

Posted: March 13, 2021
Week Fifty-three! Things have been going really great for me the past few weeks, productivity-wise. I’m finally starting to chip away at the seemingly immortal list of things that I’ve been meaning to do forever, now. The biggest update I have is that I’ve been using Noom for the past two weeks ...

Fifty-Two: Framework Beeminder

Posted: March 6, 2021
Week Fifty-two! Finally, reaching a canonical year a few weeks late due to my usual tardiness. I decided to do a bit more of a qualitative write-up for my year review on LinkedIn and my main blog. Which made me beg the question–should I be aiming to be more metric/quantitatively-focused, or qual...
