One adventure at a time. A dear friend used to remind me of that when I got overwhelmed by the enormity of the task at hand. She would break it down and give me a small portion to focus on as she said “One adventure at a time.” This round should see me through a really big adventure, and I am quite looking forward to the adventure as a whole, but the preparations for it are of the sort that could potentially overwhelm me. That being said, I am going to try a different approach to my goals this round.
First the overall goals for the round:
Complete Preparations for the BIG ADVENTURE.
Continue to make progress on Alter Ego’s Job. (one day, I will introduce you :))
WRITE! Something!! Anything!! (okay, so the actual measurable part of this is to complete the storyboard-timeline transfer, finish the short “Watersports”, and get another thousand or so words written on The Valkyrie and The Viking. But that looks like a lot so… this parenthesied section is gonna disappear for my own sanity.)
Last round I was frequently thrown off track by a varying work schedule and the rest of the drama of real life. This round, I intend to take those both into account. Each Sunday (possibly Monday) I will post my goals for the week, planning them around my work schedule and other anticipated life drama, and listing the goals by priority.
For this week: Saturday starts a four-day weekend, so to plan accordingly…
Tuesday – Friday:
- Work on Alter Ego’s job if brain is functioning sufficiently,
- if not, then finish getting the bedroom sorted and thinned.
- Get Package sent off for repairs
- get paperwork filed
- Gather/haul garbage Wednesday night. (that thinning process accumulates trash too fast!)
- Get guest post written!!
Saturday – Tuesday:
- Work on Alter Ego’s job
- When a break is needed in daylight hours, begin shed clean-out.
- When break is needed after dark, continue to transfer story notes to timelines
So, I am off on this week’s adventures. I hope to maintain sanity by tackling them one at a time. I will attempt to make a midweek blog each week that is not an update, but that is yet another adventure and my plate is already overflowing….
