Okay, so I didn’t anticipate how bad my SAD syndrome would be. But apparently, February came with a big ol’ spike of it and no I did not use my Light Box because I can be stupid at times. Now that the storms have passed (we had bad storms hit the UK), I am going out daily again and I have put my Light Box on the table to make sure I actually use it.
Last Month’s Goals
Let’s look at how I got on with last month’s goals *face-palm*… not sure why I’m bothering.
01 – Complete House Purge – PARTIALLY DONE (Got through most of my room and most of the Box Room. I’m actually happy with this!).
02 – Start the Couch to 5K – NOT DONE (Got ill again, seriously, my immune system has taken such a beaten).
03 – Complete First Draft of The Blessed – PARTIALLY DONE (I managed to get back to working on this and even fixed some of the sagging middle! This should mean I can hit it hard next month).
04 – Send out Newsletter(s) – DONE (Even managed to get another resource made for The Library).
05 – Read two book – PARTIALLY DONE (This got slowed down due to needing new glasses. I’ve been getting headaches while reading so I’ve been avoiding it, got my new glasses – finally!).
06 – Complete Something From Bucket List – NOT DONE (Just didn’t get the chance).
07 – Create new Password book – DONE (Got all my passwords updated, added to the book and closed old accounts that have been lurking around).
08 – Create out Computer System – DONE (Since I got my desktop I can’t believe how productive I’ve been. It’s now fully set up, along with backup system, all my tech like my speaker bar, web cam and scanner all installed and working).
This Month’s Goals
01 – Finish Craft Room Purge
There are things happening in March, so I thought it would be prudent to break the “house purge” down into separate rooms. I might actually get it finished. I’m so close with this, there’s just a lot of paperwork to get sorted and I need to organise my new business inventory.
02 – Start the Couch to 5K Challenge
I will get my damn ass off the sofa and running if it’s the last thing I do!!
03 – Complete First Edit of The Blessed
I need to get the first edit of The Blessed complete within the first two weeks, so it can go to my Alpha Reader. Then hopefully I can get it back by the end of the month for the second edit.
04 – Send out Newsletters(s)
Yup this one is just staying on indefinitely.
05 – Run Business Test
My shop is on a platform that has a habit of messing with their algorithm just as you figure it out. So there’s been a recent dip in views and sales. I am going to be running a test to see if I can boost relevancy and hopefully get more views which will hopefully lead to more sales.
06 – Finish A Coming Storm’s Outline
If you caught my newsletter or my social media, you’ll know I managed to procrastinate on The Blessed for a while and instead was sent with a driving fury to outline A Coming Storm. This resulted in over 8k words of the outline beind written in a few days and over half the book planned. I want to capitalise on that and finish the outline.
07 – Sort Pension
Because I’m self employed, I’m not part of an Employers Contribution Scheme, that I would if I was an employee. So I need to keep track of my pension and I have not been doing that.
What is one thing you want to accomplish this month?
