As I’ve been writing in its and starts I’ve been wondering if I’ve actually been meeting my objectives in these posts. It’s felt as though I may not have been including as much detail as I’d planned to and I may not have been quite as honest as I’d intended about my progress. As a result I’ve taken sometime out this morning to go back to the start and to reread my posts. That has given me some great input for going forward and I’ve spotted far too many typos!
Before I go back into corrections mode let’s do an update on the things I said I’d do:
Widen my circle of contacts as I spend so much time at home.
Well I have certainly been out more and have seen more people but it has been mostly a case of meeting up with people that I’ve not seen in a while. Whilst this is progress it certainly isn’t what I initially had in mind. So today I’m going to look for 6 new opportunities for meeting new people.
Mapping out new ideas/opportunities
This is a bit of a work in progress. I have notes scattered in different places and it would be useful to collate them ready for applying some decision making.
These are still coming on well and I’ve managed to get back to my steps at my new target level of 5100. I have broken the chain again by thinking I had time to make up the steps before bed only to find it was past midnight. Though I was disappointed I’ve not let that throw me off track and have got straight back to it. With this heat I think the next two days will be a true challenge. The gratitude journaling habit remains unbroken. One night I found myself restless and unable to sleep only to realise that I’d not completed my entry for that night. I was delighted to realise that as it meant that my subconscious was taking care of business for me.
Small steps lists
I’ve not looked at my lists for ongoing change since I wrote them. That needs to change so I’ll add one action from each list to my planning list and add another task to review the lists on a monthly basis. (I was going to go for weekly at first but that just seems a step too far.
My main action taking over this period continues to be learning and reflection. I’m finding myself more and more drawn to living in a more sustainable manner and would like to work towards a coaching business that supports this. My first step will be to reduce my impact on the environment to reach a neutral measure. Then my ideal would be to have a net positive impact. It’s early days and I’m starting with some small changes in part as I work out how to measure impact and partly because I know that small changes will be more sustainable and this is what I want them to be.
I’m heading in the right direction
Not quite ready to share all my thinking
Need to proof read my posts with greater attention
Today I’ll find 6 opportunities to meet new people by the beginning of September
