- Weigh myself daily – 🙂
- Walk 30 minutes every day – 😀 This is turning into a general “exercise daily” goal. I’ve walked, biked errands, or gone to the gym every day this week.
- Keep track of blood sugar and diet – 🙂
- Complete 3/6 small biz client projects – 😀 One project completed! The second got a big shot of work done this week. I’m expecting one last round of revisions before I wrap things up.
- Bonus: I worked on some article drafts.
- Keep up gratitude journal – 🙂
- Finish reading book about buying first-time home. 🙂 Done!
- Look at budget and analyze to see if we could afford monthly expenses. 🙂 Done, but it’s not looking very good. Sigh.
- Talk to mom about borrowing money.
Also, I forgot to post updates about my blog action day actions:
- One-time: Swap the halogen light with the bedroom light. 🙂 Did it later than intended, but done!
- One-time: Call our city to request a free compost bin. 🙂 Delegated to hubby who made the phone call. They sent us a booklet to read through and we have to fill out a form to get the bin. Haven’t done that part yet.
- Ongoing: Start washing and reusing ziploc bags. 🙂 Going well.
Applying some of the 4 Hour Workweek principles has definitely been a good thing.
- I make a short to-do list at the end of my day for the next workday.
- I don’t check my email until I get at least one of the major tasks done.
- I “hide” myself from IM when I’m trying to power through something.
- I do everything possible to get through my to-do list, keeping me from being distracted by other things.
- I try to be done with work by the time Steve gets home — if not before — no matter when I start working in the day. This has given me some “down time” (which I spend reading for fun) when I get done early! I think there was only one day this week when I went over by half an hour after Steve got home because I had a late meeting scheduled.
- I practiced saying “no” to a door-to-door salesman, a telemarketer, a friend who asked me to volunteer for an event, and a potentially stressful job that I didn’t think I could do in time.
- I provided my first fixed project quote.
In combination with GTD, I’ve been feeling more in-control and less reactive this week. I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend! The only computer task I plan on doing is updating our budget spreadsheet on Sunday afternoon when Steve goes to play basketball.
