For today and on...
I read a blog with a list for upcoming year and I started to read it - but I know that making a list of things to do for a whole year is maybe not sensible. Still - I found a text about how important goalsetting is...but for me it is a double-edged sword. I get easily obsessed with goals, and my on-off personality awakens. But without goals I tend to overeat or eat between meals whoch mostly leads to a binge.

But if I look at my life one year from now what would have happened?

1. I walk freely as long as I want. I donīt know if that would be result of a big wieghtloss but it is really worth trying.
2. My sleepapnea is gone – (that is just a question about weight-loss.
3. I have participated in Nanowrimo and made it through.... I have an idea that I want to write ten minutes a day for a while.
4. I have done my songwriter course at the university successfully and I have practised a lot with the ukulele to accompany all the songs I write...
5. I have returned to the good habit of baking my own breakfast bread - I will schedule it once a month although I am unsure if that will be enough.
6. I have logged in to Spark People about 90% of all days and like what I am doing there.
7. I am planning my meals one week ahead - either through buying those grocery bags or doing it myself.
8. I pay my bills the 25th every month.
9. I have gotten a scholarship to work with youth, theatre and film for 20 % and six months and have raised the trafiic and interest for our theatre which means our summer shows are 80-90% booked.
10. I have assignments as a lecturer/stand-up comedian regurlarly.
11. My daugther moved to me during summer as she starts highschool in autumn.
12. I get at least seven hours of sleep every night and go to bed fairly early.
13. I have established great routines to keep my house reasonable tidy.
14. I save a little money every month.

    All these things are wonderful. You can accomplish so much in a years time. Just break it up and it doesnt seem quite so daunting.

    I think it's good to review your life and look for things you can do to make it better. I've been gradually changing this past 10 years and holding on to those changes means a lot to me. Your list would make your life more balanced and enjoyable. emoticon

    Thank you for sharing. It's also a struggle I have, to not get overwhelmed and try to work on too many goals at once.
A personal strategy I want to adopt now is to pick only two to five goals that must have 'top' priority and work those out in detail and make a strong effort to work on those daily / weekly. And to agree with myself (write it in my agenda!) to look at the list of the rest of the goals each month and see what I want to do about them.
