Wishcasting Wednesday: Choose

What Do You Wish to Choose?

I wish to choose structure and routine for myself.  It’s so easy for me to lose focus if I don’t build my goals into my day-to-day, into my life.  I prefer the familiar and I quickly fall to my habits, so why not make good habits familiar?

Right now I’m trying to incorporate writing and learning new job skills into my routine.  It’s starting to take hold, but I’m still not satisfied with the way I structure a typical day.  I have ample time, but I feel like my accomplishments do not reflect that.

I think part of the problem is I haven’t clearly defined what I want to accomplish.  I actually woke up this morning and realized I didn’t know what to do first, because I didn’t know what I wanted to get done.  Such a silly reason to get off-track, but there it was.  So tomorrow’s list:

  • Spend one hour with Excel.
  • Apply to three jobs.
  • Attempt to speak with a guidance counselor and organize my financial aid.
  • Call WA.
  • Twenty minutes of yoga.
  • Monitor finances.  So easy I was able to do it was soon as I identified the need.
  • Finish first baby bootie.
  • Tidy house.
  • Set one appointment for new venture; if not possible, modify advertising.

While there are several individual tasks, none of them are onerous or unduly time-consuming.  I can accomplish all of those things and probably several more.  Routine, planning, and habit will make my life both easy and productive, provided I make the right choices.

    I can totally relate to the difficulty of forming routines that support goals and not being clear on exactly what those goals may be. Lol. Just this month I’ve made incredible progress, partly from doing the morning pages recommending in the Artist’s Way and also by writing down what I plan on doing the next day before I go to bed. Give that a try if it sounds worthwhile.

    As you wish for yourself I too wish for you. May all your dreams come true.

    i wind myself up into the same.
    remove expectation and ‘should do’s’ … choose one thing, do it .. then another … and your flow will begin to manifest itself.

    as you wish for yourself, i shall wish for you also <3 gayle

    Keeping focused is always challenging for me. Sometimes I find myself not doing anything because I don’t know where to begin. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

      Exactly the problem I was having; today was far more productive simply because I made a list.

    They say that if we don’t have a map, we’ll end up ‘anywhere’. This looks like a great map to get you where you want to go! Happy Job Hunting! (and getting!!!)

    As you wish for yourself I wish for you as well!

And good luck with the baby bootie…if you need tutoring just call on me. I’ve knit so many i can do it in my sleep (and i think some evenings i actually have. LOL)

    • Jill August 17, 2011 at 10:16 PM #

      Thanks for the offer! I’ve been knitting for years, but this is actually my first pair of booties. I’m enjoying how quickly they knit up.

    I read all you want to accomplish…I’m tired already! Have a cup of tea and some self love and the jobs will be easier to accomplish. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well.

    • Jill August 17, 2011 at 10:15 PM #

      Thank you. The self love is included in the list — yoga and knitting.definitely qualify. :)
