Motivating Myself in Five Areas (GPM)

. at . 10 comments

Katrina at Mama Manuscripts is hosting Goal Planning Monday
(GPM). I am participating so I’ll have a record of what I complete each week. I’ll also have a tool to energize my (sometimes) flagging motivation to complete (1) the jobs I tend to avoid or (2) jobs that get overshadowed by the urgent items on my to-do list.

Her plan is to post 5 things to complete during the week. I am tweaking this a bit and posting 5 categories with two (sometimes three) actions to be done. (h) is  for home and (w) for work. I will put a line through the task and date it when I am finished.

1. Exercise

(h) Walk 30 minutes (4-6 days)

(h) Sign up for the Idita-Walk (1/11)

(w) Take a 5 minute stretch break every 90 minutes (3 times this week)

2. Declutter project

(h) Table in dining room area

(w) Filing cabinet

3. Food

(h) Plan menu for week from anti-inflammation diet

(w) Buy and bring in snacks for 3 weeks for work (1/7)

4. Miscellaneous

(h) Fix my godson’s blanket (1/11)

(h) Decide on and buy present for soon-to-be 15-year-old niece (1/12)

(w) Email chronic pain resource list to Brittney (1/7)

5. Procrastination Project

(h) Call to see if part is in for car (have an appt. at 7:30a.m. on 1/8)

(w) Take food to food bank (1/7)

Your Turn . . .

  1. What’s on your goal list for this week?
  2. Do you plan by category?
  3. How do you motivate yourself when your energy or motivation is flagging?

    Welcome to RevGals! I am coming back to visit when I have more time–your “decluttering” and “Letter writing” caught my attention, as well as “goals.” Looking forward to getting to know you!
