New month = new goals.
Hopefully the momentum of last month will continue into this one. I realized this morning that I actually tend to write / think about two sets of goals for each month. This is probably overkill, but it is what it is. One is more habit-focused: things I’d like to do every day, perhaps additions to my usual routine or to focus on things I already do but not as consistently. The other is more task and project focused.
Here are my habit/routine goals for the month:
Avoid using phone 6p-8p
Read daily (goal of finishing 2 books)
I am experimenting with capturing these habits/routines in the Yearly Planning section of the Hobonichi – I tried this once before and I will admit that it was very rewarding to check off the boxes. . . but I also often forgot to do it 🙂 We’ll see how things go this time.
Obviously, my life goals are not all centered around daily habits — the habits are the foundation that (I hope!) will allow me to accomplish the Big Things, at home & at work. Those tasks currently reside in Project Lists in my GTD system – which I will show off later this month in the planning series I have promised. I think I will aim for a GTD/planning specific post every Monday – because I still want to write about other things, but this way I will get through the list of topic
s I wrote about earlier.
I’m super-excited for the weekend!! 3 days of family time. I can smell the chlorine + burgers already. We have playdates planned, lots of social time, a date night, and we are going to hit at least 2 items on the Summer Fun List, including C’s first movie in the theaters (Finding Dory, of course).
Happy weekend and happy MONTH. 2016 is half over . . . seems impossible, but true.
