Oops! Day 4 and I already skipped a day of blogging! I don’t even have a good excuse. Just watching Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. It’s just so good. (If you haven’t seen it go watch it now!) This is why I try not to watch TV on the weeknights.
Sometimes I think I spread myself too thin. It’s why I had to write down a list of my goals – the things I really, truly want to accomplish in the next year. I just tend to overestimate what I can do in a day. Here’s my list: French lessons, write, meditate, blog, stretch, read, journal, clean, photography class and floss. I’m trying to make all of these into habits, but each one chips away some willpower throughout the day so when I try to get things done at night, I’m too tired. (Plus work chips away a whole lot of willpower.)
Luckily, I’ve already turned French into a habit. I’ve been doing it steadily for the past six months and so now when I wake up in the morning I don’t even have to think about it. I accidentally skip a day here and there, but for the most part it gets done with no problem and no thought or willpower drainage. The power of habits!
So now my plan has changed. Instead of trying to do everything, I’m just going to focus on one or two things and make them into a habit. Then I can add more and more and stack them up until I have them all. 🙂
Since I want to have my book on the way to being published in the next year I think the most important focus is writing.
