There Will Be No Miracles Here Posted on 6 Jan 12:32
Okay everyone, look lively! 2022! Another trip around the sun? New Year, New You? New Plans, New Places?
If all of that sounds too ambitious, how about settling for a new notebook?
I am almost a month into a '100 days' SOYS project. SOYS = Sort Out Your Stuff. It's not a huge commitment, but it is helping me focus. I started last month so that I finish on my birthday. I am addressing a murky list of stuff that I made when I began the challenge, one day at a time. There will be no miracles here, but the picture is getting clearer, and the job list is a little shorter.
It's been fun (if you have a low threshold for fun) and it has been very helpful in terms of focussing on things that I really need to do. I have used some digital apps to keep me on track, but I am a very visual person. I need to see things laid out clearly, so most of the plotting, planning and actions have been mapped out in a notebook. A new notebook, because obviously...
What can you achieve over 100 days? Or 365?
I love this blog post by Seth Godin because the content is so true, but also because it contains the phrase 'dog eared notebook'. I love a dog eared notebook because it contains wisdom and learning.
Get yourself a Moleskine notebook, and get some perspective.
Work From Home? Home From Work? Are the boundaries blurring for you? I use an app called Trello for home and work, and found these prescient tips from BC (before covid) on their company blog.
for quick notes on the go/at my desk, I use my PT Notebook.
