To save you having to read the original post, I decided that rather than have a New Year Resolution that I would not bother to keep, I would have a monthly To Do list and see how long that lasted.
I have to say, so far it has been pretty darn motivating. In the last week or so I have
- organised photo albums of the wedding, honeymoon and family for the last year;
- filled the photo frames AND (and this is even more impressive) got Mr G to get them up on the wall in the same weekend! Never underestimate the power of a good nagging.
- filled that scrap book with the items we collected on our honeymoon in Sri Lanka;
Not bad going!
However, I did notice that whilst I spent the hours choosing photos and arranging albums I did not get to play with the kids or relax with the husband over the weekend. Something has to give – it seems it is always a choice between work or play, prioritising one job over the over.
Now I have the day to myself I have another choice. Coursework or paying work, blogging or job hunting.
So I am adding something else to my January GOYBADS list – to start noting down the time I spend on different tasks in the day and see where my life is going.
How are you all getting on with your resolutions? Ready to join me and GOYBADS?
(Do you think it will catch on?)
