So far I haven’t been doing a so great with this goal. The first week I only accomplished about half of what was on my list and the second week I completely forgot to make a list. These are intentions and not things that absolutely have to be done this week (honestly… there isn’t much in life that absolutely has to be done ever), but I would like to get most of them done this week, though I am sure some of them won’t get accomplished because other things will come up, and that’s okay.

I decided to start this goal because I’d like to start being more deliberate about what I accomplish. I’ve tried goals (either on here or privately) where I would write down daily to-do list. Those are helpful sometimes, but I think this goal will serve me better. Unlike a lot of people… I don’t keep a regular schedule and I have a lot of free time (except for 8-10 weeks every summer, I don’t really work full time). This free time is a blessing and a curse at the same time because I always feel like I can put things off. I think this goal will better serve me because it takes into account a larger time frame (which works with instead of fighting against my laid back nature and my lifestyle), but also because the use of the word “intentions” frees me from beating myself up over anything on the list that could evolve or change in both nature, desire, and/or urgency.
