Realizations About Tracking Progress

Realizations About Tracking Progress

Realizations About Tracking Progress Dear Blog, Last Monday I wrote about goal setting. About giving up our freedoms to things that are easier. Well, today, I want to talk about the reasoning behind the goals. If you've been following me for a while, you probably know I like to track my progress. I've been doing it daily for my writing since 2017. You probably also know I've been trying to get into the habit of tracking progress in other areas, like language study and water intake. If we don't track progress, do we really know how we're doing? If we don't write it down, did it really happen? It's easy to forget how much we're progressing if we don't track it in some way. But tracking takes time. Maybe more time than I'm willing to give it over the long-term. It's great to know how we're spending our time during the day and it's a great tool to figure out where we need to make necessary changes...

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.

Sometimes You Just Need a Self-Intervention

Sometimes You Just Need a Self-Intervention Dear Blog, It's been a while since I last wrote. The truth is, I didn't do any writing. Not because I didn't want to, I did, but because we were busy ripping our kitchen apart and figuring out details for cabinets, countertops, and the usual things that come with remodeling the kitchen of an old 1949 house. We've finally come to a little lull as we wait on an electrician to give us a quote (what's with no one calling you back these days?). While my husband was in annual training over the weekend, I had some time to myself. But I didn't do any writing (well, a few words here and there, I don't want to lie). I feel like I'm stuck. This past month has been frustrating. I've hardly written a thing. My current project has not been flowing through my fingers like the last one did during my 14-day plan. It's been a complete...
