Time moves in one direction, memory in another ~ William Gibson
Even when everything is wonderful and all is right… you still feel something missing.
At the beginning of the year, I decided to settle on some goals. Steps I would take to make my life better or, things I wanted to do more of. I suppose there’s no point in having goals if you’re not working towards them. And the only way to make sure that you’re doing something right is to do a progress check.
For one thing, I decided to write out my goals in my personal planner (my EDC Filofax) and my journal (my Hobonichi Techo), so I could refer back to them often and know what I wanted to be doing this year.
I had hoped to review my progress on a weekly basis or at least monthly basis but I guess I’m horrible at maintaining a schedule with things like these. So I thought I’d do it today. There’s no time like the present, right?
So how have I done so far..
- I have started studying for the third level of my professional exam, albeit very slowly.
- I have started to read more
- I have started to focus more at work and limit my distractions
- I have been journaling everyday (bonus: I’ve also been writing one line a day about what I am thankful for)
So far, I have been good with these goals but they are only 4 out of my target of 10. But since it’s not zero out of 10, I will give myself a small pat on the back and encouragement to reach the ten.
Over the years, my biggest benefit of reading blogs has been the product reviews. It’s really helpful to know what a product is like before actually buying it. Someone trying it out and writing about it give me a lot of information and views on whether to buy it or not.
Since, I’m a shopaholic (certification pending), I’ve decided that it’s about time I do some reviews too. I have done a few in the past but am hoping to make it a regular feature. I’m trying to give back. May be my posts may help someone, the way others have helped me.
So stay tuned….
