The full moon is about to orbit and reveal itself in all its full glory. This means my previous New Moon Intentions Ritual (or just another way to plan my time), should be bearing a little fruit. As you can see in the image of my journal notes, I didn’t really go to town this lunar cycle. However, and perhaps because of that, I have pretty much succeeded.
I am blocking off time for major work projects. More importantly, I am sticking to those blocks. One thing I needed to help this was making sure I had next actions available. I am quite good at thinking big projects and dreams. I am also quite good and knowing that something, an action, needs to be done. What I am not so good at is linking the big with the little steps. I have been working on that this lunar cycle and I am getting there.
Knowing what I have to do (the next actions) and why I have to do it (the big picture projects) has helped me avoid drifting. I can easily run off down creative avenues and get lost. Sometimes these detours lead to new imaginative locations, but more often than not it is at the expense of something I should be doing or would be better finishing first. I still want to get lost creatively, but only when I have the time.
This has led me to be a lot more positive with things. The less anxious about getting stuff done, the more I am able to do. The new work pattern, a little bit of time discipline (not excessive), has had an exponential increase in my productivity. I often find that a little control offers more freedom. There is a fine line though and in isolation might not have such a positive effect – it is only because of the next actions work I have done that it is really working.
The next couple of weeks, as the moon wanes, I’ll be tweaking and continuing with my intentions for the Hare moon. The way I keep my projects clear and related to my goals and daily next actions still needs some work, but I am pleased with the progress so far.
May this Full Moon be a spring tide1 for you.
1 Spring tide is the name given to the higher and lower tides caused by the new and full moons. There, educational as well as inspirational – ha! More here
