Here’s what a typical week looks like for me:
Monday to Friday: Work stuff + some time with family + read / watch stuff during my commute
Friday evening: Make a humongous list of things I’d like to do over the weekend
Saturday & Sunday: Make half-assed attempts to tackle my list of weekend to-dos / fun things / experiences, rarely completing anything in its entirety
Sunday evening: Rue that all the things that I wanted to achieve over the weekend lie uncompleted and vow to be less lazy next weekend.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who’s caught up in this silly cycle. No really, I can’t be the only one!
Well, even if I am, something about this has to change. And after going over this in my head a million and one times (and berating myself for being such a lazy ass), I decided that I would just focus on getting ONE THING done on the weekend. Yay for unitasking, right!
And I’m asking if you wanna join in too. The idea is simple – every Friday morning I’ll set out a simple intention for the weekend. Like – try a new recipe, or read a form of literature you won’t usually read, or something along those lines. I’m focusing on experiences here and I’d love it if you follow along too. I mean, if nothing else, at least we’d have done something different.
I’m kicking off this “Do This Weekend” thing on a slightly reflective note – let’s relook at our goals for 2016.
In just about a week from today, we will enter the last quarter of the year. If you haven’t already done so (full disclosure: I haven’t), it would be just the perfect time to take stock of the goals you had set for yourself at the beginning of the year, re-assess and re-calibrate.
I’m planning to bust out my Unraveling worksheets (a wonderful way to start the year) and my One Little Word notebook and go over all the thoughts and intentions I’d set out at the beginning of the year. Instead of fussing over all the things I’ve not completed, I’m going to take a moment to celebrate the things that I’ve achieved, and then create a better and informed list of things I’d like to have achieved by the end of the year. I’ll check back with my experience next week.
What do you think? Are you joining in?
