It is a leap year. We have an extra day. An additional day to complete things, do more and enjoy ourselves. However, that doesn’t really help February. Even with an extra day it is still the shortest month of the year. Despite the corporations instilling the virtues of love and demanding we part with our cash to share it with others, it is also a month that so often sees us longing for spring and summer.
February felt like a two steps backward one step forward month. I write it in that order because as the month closes I feel positive about things. To end up feeling that way I needed to stop, go back and organise.
I was feeling overwhelmed, from my pile of books and journals to the situation I still found myself in despite trying to sort things out. This is a state of affairs I often find myself. However, this time I managed to go through everything I wanted and needed to do and organise it all.
My goals needed to be reassessed. Nothing was connected. I had things I was doing, but I was unsure about why I was doing them. This can lead to a lack of motivation on the best of days… but February c’mon.
A big list was made in OmniOutliner. Everything I wanted to do and achieve was put on it. Goals, roles and projects were all connected up. The list was pulled into OmniFocus where after a little editing and refining, it began to tell me what my next action was.
My goals are now aligned with my life vision. My goals have projects, and the projects have steps to complete them. I’ll expand a little on this in other posts, as this is just a review of the month.
The planning meant that posts here were a little light on the ground. I also failed to complete the FAWM challenge, or will do at midnight. I did write over ten tracks, but that’s not enough for victory. Some freelance work took a very short break, but has been pushed forward this morning.
I am up to date with Patreon and I am excited about how that is developing.
I didn’t get as much done as I had hoped, but by taking a step back, March is looking to be a very interesting month.
