February Progress on my 2018 Goals

February Progress on my 2018 Goals
So where am I? I’m a bit off track and disorganized. It’s time to take stock:
1) I started and ended the month within range, but there were about 6 days where my weight was over the arbitrary limit I set for myself. Plantar fasciitis is contributing to the problem.

2) My steps are on track in spite of my Plantar fasciitis issue.

3) I’ve got a light strength training routine that I do 3 times a week. I’m just working on making it a habit right now.
4) Organization:
a. I’m doing very well with office emails. I’ve got good habits that I’m maintaining every day.
b. I’m developing a technique to keep my office calendar updated in line with the same level of efficiency as my office emails.
c. Home paperwork has been neglected. I’ve got a plan to get that in shape by chipping away a bit every evening this week.
d. Photos are coming along. They’re all digital so I’m working to keep everything in folders so I can find things more easily. I’ve got the software to sort and organize everything by keywords, but I don’t want to waste time and resources by tagging everything. I need to continue to keep deleting photos that aren’t worth keeping so I can focus my attention on “the good stuff.”
e. Personal emails are still a mess – I’m just saving things in folders until I make the time to go through and decide what to keep and what to trash.
f. Personal calendar – Funny I put this last, it’s really my highest priority. I almost missed paying a bill due to my disorganized state. I can’t allow that to happen. I’m getting to work on my Personal Calendar TODAY!
I’m not thinking about taking classes this month. Other than the new details to my Organizational Goals, I’m not adding any new goals right now.

Writing this blog has really helped me organize my thoughts. Now it’s time to get to work.

Let’s make 2018 a great year!

    Being organized can really take a lot of stress out of your life. Make sure your techniques are actually helping you and not just adding one more thing to your to do list. emoticon emoticon

    This sounds GREAT to me!!!! You go for it!

    3-5-18 Thanks Spark Guy for the funny video on your email dated 3-3-18! Great inspiring video! Funny, as I get ahold of my eating & fitness program, my debt is on the way down. I used the Susie Orman way of doing it. Payoff the BIGGEST credit card, with highest interest, first. (while still paying minimums on all cards) THEN, once paid off, use the money you would have used to pay the paid off one, & apply to the next BIGGEST 1. & keep doing till everything is paid off. (Not buying things I don't need, helps, ALLOT!)

    Awesome plan! You are inspiring me to get on top of all of my electronic communication. I've always sorted as thing come, but I now have way too much everywhere, and I need go through it all. Thanks for the encouragement! You've obviously got this, and I wish you a GREAT month!

    You are really setting yourself up for success, and continued success, in so many ways!
    Sorry to hear about your plantar fasciitis, I have it too. Moreso in one heel than the other.
    You walk so much each day, I am impressed that you push through the pain.
