Well. It’s nearly March and it is not looking good for my Q1 goals list. It is also not looking good for my January goals list! That’s right — I never made one for February.
While I love my system of nested goals, there are definitely times when I end up just treading water. February started with a tough call week which was followed by a Disney trip which was followed by norovirus which was followed by a rather stressful and busy work week (and some midlife crisis-esque big feelings).
So, not shocking that I am a bit behind.
However! This week is much better and I plan to clear the decks today. Not clear the decks as in “get all the goals done!” but clear as in reassess, clean up my lists + bring them up to date, and have a more realistic and strategic set of goals for March. Also, Q1 isn’t over until mid-April this year (very late spring break!) so perhaps there is hope for some of my goals, though I have decided to abandon any organizing project entirely until we are in the new house. (While decluttering prior to moving seems logical, I am just NOT feeling inspired at all).
Some of these things happened (C’s bday party! Work bag with a zipper – though this was pure luck as one was spontaneously sent from a podcast sponsor, and it’s lovely and I’m using it!). Most of them didn’t, such as “MOVE”. Ha.
I think Todoist is a nice tool, though I will say I somehow feel more apt to ignore it than I do a paper list! I definitely do not feel inspired to use it as a daily task list – more for longer-term collections (travel planning, quintiles lists, etc).
I am really really looking forward to feeling like I have a handle on all of my goals and tasks though — so I will report back tomorrow. I will definitely be DELETING some things, too – similar to my committee-quitting I just feel like now is a good time to really look at what is a priority.
Off to run! (though see above running goal – definitely not achieving that yet. Not giving up though).
Also: world events. While noticeably absent from this post, they are on my mind. These are heavy times.
