Month Two – report

Yes, I’m doing a brave thing and going back to my resolutions to report on progress.

I had a list of ‘do more’ and ‘do less’.

One month in, I’ve rated progress using the amazing five tick/check system.

 

More:

  • READ MORE BOOKS; I’M AIMING FOR ABOUT 30 THIS YEAR.

√√√√√

Seven books finished in Jan. Two more already being worked through for Feb. Very happy.


  •  WRITING. FINISH AND RELEASE METROPOLITAN FEAR. WHILE I’M A SIGNIFICANT WAY THROUGH THE FIRST DRAFT (ABOUT 67%), IT WILL TAKE A LOT OF EFFORT TO FINISH THIS IN 2018.

√√√√

Looking positive, but a long way to go still. 101,000 words drafted so far.

In New York (the setting for Metropolitan Fear), the Empire State Building hogs the limelight, but it’s the Chrysler Building that steals my heart.

  • PROMOTION OF WRITING. IT FEELS A LITTLE UNSAVOURY, BUT NOBODY ELSE IS GOING TO DO IT FOR ME.

√√

Not done much, but I haven’t renewed Amazon exclusive retail rights, which gives me the chance to look at multiple platforms, should I get the time.


  • EXERCISE

No stars. No progress.


  • VOLUNTEERING

No stars. No progress.


  • FAMILY TIME

√√√

Report: Could be worse. Could be better. Meh. 


  • TRAVELING (BUT IN A GOOD WAY)

√√√√

Good progress. Flights booked to Ireland. Now going to an African country I’ve not visited before instead of a central American one that I have. 

Somewhere new!

  • SLEEP

Um. Three to four hours, with breathing issues between is normal right?


  • SEEK TO FURTHER THE AIMS OF MY FAMILY

√√√√√

I have been working very hard in this respect. Can’t be faulted.


  • LOOK AT MAKING A POSITIVE CHANGE TO RETIREMENT PLANS (WHICH SEEM LIKE AN IMPOSSIBLE WAY OFF AND MAY NEVER HAPPEN)

No stars – retiring some time next century.


Less:

  • UNHEALTHY LIFESTYLE CHOICES

√√√√

Diet better.

Dry January – fully done and still going.

Weight loss four pounds.

Medical diagnosis obtained for an issue. 

All good, but could do more.

 

Me, Feb 2018, obviously.
