Tracking Progress and Another Similar Art Form

Tracking Progress and Another Similar Art Form

Tracking Progress and Another Similar Art Form Dear Blog, Last week I talked about tracking progress. Today, I wanted to talk about a similar art form: writing it down. Here's a question for you... do you remember what you did a week ago? Do you remember if you completed your desired tasks for the week? Maybe there were a couple days in there that you missed. But now that a week has gone by, do you remember *which* days you missed? I reject that losing memory is an age thing. It's just something I need to work on. We're taught to believe that we lose our memory with age. Our joints get stiffer and start to protest when we try to get out of chairs. We're just not as energetic or as limber. We soak up all those beliefs and start to believe them for ourselves. We start to let ourselves go because what's the point anyway? The thing is, while we're battling this issue,...

A Simple Step to Making Even More Progress

A Simple Step to Making Even More Progress Dear Blog, Last time, I wrote about tracking progress. Seeing the number of days we've met a daily goal is motivating and inspiring.

Instead, we dwell on how far behind we still are from where we want to be. And no matter how much we do, it will never be enough. Right? And then the goals seem so much farther away. I don't know why we dwell on that. I guess it's easier to live in low vibrational frequencies because to achieve that, we don't actually have to do anything. To live a happy life, to live at a higher frequency, we have to work at it. We have to take care of our health with water, nutrients, and exercise....

A Super Simple Way to Track Your Progress

A Super Simple Way to Track Your Progress Dear Blog, Last time, I talked about taking back control on a goal. You know those apps that tell you you're on a roll for doing a particular thing every day? Well, I decided to start designing a paper version for myself. That way, if I stay up until three in the morning to meet a goal, my "streak sheet" still says I met it. I got started on the design, but then I got sidetracked. I decided instead to go back to using a bullet journal I had created a couple years ago. If you're not familiar with bullet journals, they're great for keeping track of progress and daily tasks. I use one for my writing and business work. There are a bunch of premade designs you can buy and even print out, or you can design it the way you want with a notebook and a pen. My regular bullet journal is simple. Nothing fancy. It's...
