Through all of my malaise, I neglected to post a couple of weeks of my hobonichi layouts! I won’t show you last week’s because it is basically empty but I did a good job of keeping up with them the previous two weeks.
I won’t go through all of my goals line by line tonight, but I will say that I’m still on track with my reading goals, woohoo! I’ve finished 17 books so far this year, which puts me 7 books ahead of schedule. And I’ve read 5303 pages, so I’m 1303 pages ahead of pace. That’s the good thing about doing things in spurts – I’m covered when the dry spells happen!
I fell behind in my War & Peace goal though. It’s been about a week and a half since I read a chapter. And to be honest, I’m nervous about returning to it because I was already lost as a goose; I can’t imagine how confused I’ll be now. But I suppose I’ll take the time to read just one chapter tonight before I settle in with one of my library books. I have to remind myself that it usually takes less than 5 minutes to read a chapter and I can do anything for five minutes!
And of course, I fell behind with my writing and blogging goals. And that’s okay too. I’m glad that it’s a new week and I’m feeling motivated and confident again.
As you can see, I spent a lot of the week of the 18th knitting. It’s not one of the goals that I’m tracking and I’m mostly using it as a stress reliever, but I wanted to record it in my time tracker so that it was clear to me that I accomplished something. I still have quite a ways to go with that particular knitting project, but that’s okay. When I work on something huge, that means that I’m spending less money buying yarn for other projects! I’m trying to just enjoy the process and not focus on churning out finished projects, which is something that I struggle with. I’m all about production around here!
So here’s to another week of chronicling the little achievements that I make so that I don’t feel completely useless and wasteful! Ha! (totally kidding. sort of.)
You’re right to chronicle your achievements, be they big or small, I think. It reminds me of what Gretchen Rubin calls the “Ta-Da!” List, instead of a To do List. It’s a list is your daily or weekly accomplishments that makes you realize all you’ve gotten done! Great job on your reading so far this year!
Ha! I love the idea of a “Ta-Da!” List! Thanks for letting me know about that 🙂
