There are about six weeks left in the year – yeah, I know. I can’t believe it either. But I’ve decided that instead of panicking (which was my first thought), I am going to use that time to start my goals for 2014. I am going to use the time to start creating new habits (and returning to older ones that worked but I let go for some reason) so that when the new year begins and I’m feeling energized and hopeful… I’m in a better position to be successful.
First – no more internet/phone during working time. Even though Time Magazine reported on the reasons we are so addicted to Candy Crush (http://business.time.com/2013/11/15/candy-crush-saga-the-science-behind-our-addiction/?xid=newsletter-weekly) I know that I can do this. I’ve given up other games and not missed them. I can do this.
Second – add non-fiction book reading times to my day. Over lunch, taking a break in the afternoon. No television. I have a huge library of non-fiction books on everything from writing to magic/tarot to Law of Attraction themed support books. It’s time to make a dent in this library and learn some great new things that will support me and my writing.
Third – get my spaces in the best shape they can be in. This weekend I finally got the master bedroom completely cleaned. It was no easy task. Laundry, shoes, new purchases. Things were piled everywhere. I found things I forgot I bought. Sheesh! Now it’s time to tackle my workspace and the rest of the house. Wouldn’t it be amazing to start 2014 with my home de-cluttered and welcoming?
So those are my three for the next six weeks. What would help you to end the year with joy? Wanna do this together?
