What have I Done Today?
Basically spent the whole day writing on the application to make it as clear as possible.
Had a good talk with a friend about work, free time and engagement in different projects. Catching up. Very good talk!
Got up to date with the potential collaboration I might venture into to use 'Heuristic Inquiry' as part of my exam project. Exciting...!
In the evening I have gotten a lot of feedback on the application. That was great for confidence and adding that last piece of engagement to finish it.

What Surprised Me?
How much energy I have in something as boxed-in, bureaucratic and old-school as a project application filling out boxes of text. It is a fascinating feeling how much commitment can take me through things I otherwise would consider extremely boring.
The compliment feedback I got on my project funding application for being very bureaucratic in my language. Does that mean that I cannot be considered an entrepreneur & innovator?
That so many people in my generation seem to be unfolding a higher consciousness toward what they do and work with is not aligned with how they want to live. I can see a lot of change happening just because of this change of attitude toward work and lifestyle.
That I got another person to join the habit-hacking service Habitica. It really makes sense to me and it is a lot of fun gamifying the Getting-Things-Done methodology.
What has Changed?
The thought that there maybe is a big possibility that I use my third year exam project on what I will apply for funding with.
Realising that I am very keen on going into the free online Theory U course and exploring Heuristic Inquiry.
The feeling that I tomorrow will be free from constant writing to get project funding! I can see the light in the end of the tunnel, very much looking forward.
What are the Next Action Steps?
- Spending last half-day to refine and finish the project funding application.
- Enjoy the freedom of being done with project funding!
- Talk with expert on Social Innovation in Sweden.
- Start engaging in the Theory U course!
