This hasn’t been easy, but definitely is worthwhile. I see the biggest gains in PE, and I’ve done a good job of de-cluttering, cleaning and maintaing cleanliness of my living space and car. My car is now repaired, licensed and registered.
The other big category with gains is Money. I’ve gotten all my files organized, a budget calculator and net worth calculator and am getting a handle on my investments and my spending with an eye towards being more frugal with my discretionary funds.
I believe best areas for my focus for the next quarter (April-June 2011) are: Money and Well-being.
Big stuff that needs to happen:
1. Lose weight so my clothes fit and I’m at my ideal weight.
3. Budget and Track spending
1. Schedule & backup my harddrive monthly.
2. Drink at least 2 liters of water a day.
3. Write a will.
Not important to me at this time:
1. Reduce Alcohol
2. Reduce Sugar/Caffeine
3. Environment-not changing house/job/geo for at least 22 months
I made headway on clearing out all mail and “paper”. All of the most current documents have been sorted/shredded/piled to be filed. I need to find a filing system that works for me.
Next steps on this are:
1. Go through bin of old mail (already previously sorted/organized by type)
My office is looking really good. Once I clear out the bin that will be the last of the things that I can eliminate from my physical environment at work.
My living quarters are looking much better as well. I need to get a hanging closet organizer to eliminate some of the clutter in my bureau. I am getting better about consistently putting “everything in its place” as soon as I’m done with it.
My car is running okay. I still need to work on getting it registred (and my motorcycle too). I will likely order the floormats in february, and in the Spring (May?) I will find somewhere to get the upholstery shampoo’ed. She’s 20 years old! And I’ll look into getting the ding in the driver’s side door pulled. I’m saving for new tires that she’ll need when I rotate the snow studs off.
I am still working on punctuality. I would say I’m on time about 50% of the time and if I’m late it is usually 2-7 minutes. I would like to develop a reputation as someone who is early or always on time.
Overall I am satisfied with progress and focus on this goal.
Got the snow tires on ($50)
Found out I need a new muffler ($110) and an
Oil Change ($29) so I’ll take the car in Saturday for those.
I will also keep looking for floor mats, but may put this in the February expense column.
I picked up the replacement light cover ($36).
I dumped all of the recyclables.
Feeling pretty good about this area, but still need to figure out car/motorcycle registration.
Today I got some tasks completed with regards to my car and my wardrobe.
-Picked up re-heeled work shoes from cobbler.
-Cleaned out interior of car.
-Scheduled snow tire install.
-Ordered new light cover for driver’s side front light.
-Gassed up the car.
-Tried to find replacement floor mats.
-Tried to get registration renewed.
-Considered oil change.
Total: 44 (out of 100)
This program is part of establishing a Strong Personal Foundation. With this strong base, one can build a vibrant and attractive future. But it requires an investment.
This program is a backdoor approach to personal growth, business success and happiness. Rather than chase goals or try to figure out one’s life purpose, better to get the stuff out of the way so you can get the perspective you need to make better decisions and attract what you really want.
One of the goals is to stop having problems, handle the incompletions you have currently and maintain a clean space, forever, so you can create as you were designed to. The Clean Sweep Program is the first step in that process.
