February Goals

As I mentioned briefly, I decided against making year-long resolutions for 2015.  Instead, I bought a little planner (literally an excuse to use more planners) and have been setting weekly/monthly goals. At the beginning of the year, I assigned each month an overall focus, then set up little goals around that.

February is home month, mostly because I am on duty (and therefore housebound) for two weekends. Among the goals are to paint my bathroom, potentially paint my bedroom (though it feels like a lot) and reorganize all my files and get them out of my old desk.

I'm also trying to find more ways of being focused and productive when I'm at home.  There are lots of times when I get sucked into something (cough television couth) after work, and any hopes of being productive go out the window.  Mondays and Thursdays are going to be tv-less, and books are back in heavy rotation.  I've also started following the 2 minute rule for house stuff - if something is going to take 2 minutes or less, do it now.  Otherwise, designate a time to do it later. I feel much more relaxed and focused when I'm also productive, so it's my hope that this will all help me feel like I have my shit together a little more.  Les do it, February!
