my word| 3.26.19 …

T’is the last Tuesday of the month – joining Juliann and others for  a “My Word” update.

In the overall scheme of things, I’m trying to establish some new, different habits and break familiar, sooo comfortable old ones. On some fronts, I’ve been right on track, making progress, implementing small yet steady changes and others, I fall into the “try a little harder” camp. On a scale of 1 – 10, I’ll give myself an overall 6.9 of 10 score…

Specifically, I am focusing on these areas:

  • Blog: I’ve decided that I’m going for a M, W, and F  – 3 times a week publication schedule, fitting in other days as an occasion or topic warrants, e.g; the last Tuesday of the month is update on my 2019 word… I think this best schedule, providing  flexibility in not only writing posts but also replying to comments in a more timely  manner. Since I moved to WordPress I’ve been “reply challenged,” trying to get the hang of a different and more timely system. I think I know what I need to do…and I shall give it a try; staying on top of communicating on a more timely basic with the wonderful blog community. Thanks everyone for being here and encouraging me and one another on!
  • Life: We all have daily to do items, places to go, people to see, things to buy and /or make, household chores, etc. These can easily mushroom and so I’m trying to cultivate the habit of  the “Power Hour” ~ a daily/weekly time to attend to : @ the computer; chores: calls; cleaning; döstädning; errands; etc. It’s so easy to let these things slide and then there’s a big build up, especially in the @computer/tally on-going-expenses areas…Some things I aim to do daily and others, weekly – or X-# times in a week as with blog posts. Perhaps these categories are not HABITS as much as they are FOCUS ACTION  areas ~ things that grab my attention at least once a week…
  • Creating/Creativity: My list expands and contracts, sometimes, oft times because of a deadline that suddenly looms large ’cause I am easily, inspired, wooed. Thus, I find myself having to give my undivided attention to the deadline…The habit I am changing is that of saying NO to brighter, shinier objects so I can and do, indeed say YES! to engaging in, exploring, experiencing my own creativity…and most importantly to stop writing a thousand notes on a thousand random pieces of paper. When I master that, I know I will  have arrived!

So, there t’is: a brief snapshot of my thinking and evaluation of month 3 living with my word: habit!  Do visit Juliann to see how she and others are fairing with their words. How is yours thriving in your life?

Cheers~

  1. Oh Honore! Now you’ve got me thinking..that’s a good thing. The past 3 weeks away from barn classes as we are off Session were filled to the brim with doctor appointments, visits with friends, and of course, Oklahoma to visit Al. I know Fireman thinks I spend too much time on line. But I love my blog correspondences! I need to give this more thought. Hmmmmm hmmmm hmmm. I look forward to your M W F posts!

  2. oooh, I love your Habit chart! (and that lovely word art – looks like Ali’s?) I’m loving the 3x weekly blogging … but I have yet to figure out how to read/comment on others’ blogs on a daily basis. (and I’m not sure that matters, but it still bothers me – I think I’d be better served to get over the guilt, huh?)
