OK that didn’t work so well

Nope no at all. Great ideas all of them but not working out the way I had envisioned them to.

All the plans of mice and men come to nought without engagement and follow through.

I had a grand time creating the plans and making the lists but when it came down to it I have not followed through on them at all.

Almost no exercise, my diet is a joke.

Again I could make all the excuses in the world but I am not doing the things that I need to do for my physical and mental health.

When the mental is good I do the physical so I need to do my meditation and watch the foods that exacerbate the mental things and consume then things that will lessen them. Deliberately not going into details here because ‘reasons’.

On another note I have been getting creative work done. WOO!!

I’ve completed roles for 2 audio drama podcasts (1 live now 1 in development). I’ve also completed some sound design things and am working hard on a couple others (sorry nothing publicly available at the moment)

 

Be Well!

Ok this is getting ridiculous

I know most of the things I need to do.

I don’t do them most of the time.

ADD and stress have been playing a role in this for the past several years.

As I get more stressed the more my ADD presents. This causes me to feel more stress. Nothing like a nice self-perpetuating cycle of woe to make things difficult.

So I need to just do it. Granted I’ve been saying that for quite a while now.

I have a plan.

I made 3 task lists:

  1. Daily tasks : This one stays the same for the most part. It contains things like my exercise and water intake.
  2. Work : This one changes each work day and has the items that I plan to complete for my day job each day.
  3. Personal : This one has my um… personal daily tasks / goals on it and can change daily as well.

I am limited to 5 tasks on each list, this is to keep myself from overloading my tasks and creating more stress. I can and likely will do items that are not on the lists but the list items are the most important ones.

I have 6 colors for each list:

  • Purple : All tasks on the list are complete
  • Green : 4 items on the list are complete
  • Blue : 3 items on the list are complete
  • Yellow : 2 items on the list are complete
  • Orange : 1 items on the list are complete
  • Red : No items on the list are complete

I exercise daily. I am creative in some way every day. I meditate every day.

I’m not going to go into the details of all the tasks since that would make posting about it much more daunting.

I have my lists all set for tomorrow.

Be Well!

And I went and fell off the wagon yet again…

So the accountability wagon is not playing nice with me.

I keep falling the heck off.

So this weekend I’m going to delineate my goals for the next few months.

Once I have that done I’ll be able to better have an idea of where I want to go as well as a plan on moving in that direction.

One of the things that I have set out to do is to do more work with audio production. Which I have had the piece I worked on go live today so I am moving in the right direction.

 

Be Well!

1PM

Another day at the accountability mine

Read one chapter in marketing book: Another chapter consumed

Track Calories: Tracked the fuel intake and had a 400 cal restriction.

Walk 30 minutes: Got that out of the way right after work.

Meditate 5 minutes: Hey I did this while ‘resting’ from the walking.

Practice typing for 15 minutes: Worked on this. Have to pay more attention to not paying attention to typing if I want to improve.

Work on unfinished Audio Drama Project: Yeah about this one… the evening sort of got away from me tonight so it’s a fail on this task

Be Well!

1PM

Task Completion Day 1

Practice Typing 15 minutes a day: Yep did that.

Meditate 5 Minutes a day: And this. I found a nice 5 minute mindfulness bell meditation that I’m using.

Walk 30 min 4 + Days a week: I even walked wow 3 in a row! Setting this one to 4 days.

Lift weights 2 – 3 Days a week: No weights on walking days. Setting it to 2 days a week so I have 1 day off of exercise a week.

Track calories. Bring food to work, no junk food at work.: I was mostly good but I forgot to bring food to work. Still ended with a calorie restriction thou to woo.

Record, produce and post 1 Audio demo per month: Didn’t even think about this one. I’m not going to push to get one out this month since it’s almost over and no demo is better than a crappy one.

Work on unfinished Audio production projects at least 30 minutes a day: I did this, actually about 45 minuts worth. Much was finding sounds, checking the license then downloading the audio.

Read 15 minutes on book from list daily: I read for about 15 minutes from a marketing book I picked up a year or two back.

And I made this accountability post to boot. Go me!

 

Be Well!

Stupid new year

Yep I’ve fallen off the wagon yet again. *le sigh*

I need to reintroduce regular public accountability to my routine.

I’m going to make a list of daily tasks tonight.

I am going to pay f*ing attention to my time management (which is abysmal at best currently)

I have several projects that need to be completed as soon as possible.

Rewards for completion will be assigned for ‘da things.

 

Also help out a fellow creative if you can over at https://www.youcaring.com/clarenceyoung-736725

He lost loads and could use some assistance!

Be Well!
