The year, I'm focusing on monthly intentions as a step to accomplish my overall 2012 intentions. You can read my intentions, specifically for JostWrite, here. Below is a recap of what I accomplished and did not get through in the month of January. These include personal, professional, health-wise and all.
January Intentions, Recapped...
Commence work on website, logo and business cards...Keyword is 'COMMENCE', & I did. :) Hopefully, I'll have it all together in Feb. Work is in progress, so that is good. Post a Showcasing article...Read here. Confirm a February Showcasee...Accomplished in early Feb, but it's done & I can cross it off. I'm so excited. I try to have a showcasee ready two months in advance, but life got in the way.:) Finish edits on a friend's manuscript & send back with critiques...I enjoyed doing this.
- Apply to 30 jobs...Did not get to 30, but I passed the #20 mark, and interviewed too. :)
pend time praying and reading my bible in the mornings. M-F...I can't describe the difference this has made in my life. I want to do this forever. I take weekends off. Work on my Manuscript PP. M-F...Yes, yes and the characters are growing. Oh Lawdy! I also take weekends off. Go to bed latest by 11pm Sunday nights -Thursday nights... 80% compiled. A life-saver. Wake up latest at 8pm M-F...70% compiled, a life-saver. Feb is a wonk, & I need to fix that. :) Start and finish "A Woman in Berlin"...Finished it 3rd day in Feb, but it's done. I'll let you know my thoughts soon.
- Exercise at least 3 days/week: weight training and aerobics...major fail. 100% fail :(
Pay tithe...DONE! Save 5-10%...DONE! Give beyond my tithe...DONE! This always give me joy. Write and mail a letter to A21 Campaign girls...DONE! Introduce JostStart: Dreamers to DOERs...Yes! First interview done, others scheduled. :) Blog M-F...Yes, 95% complied. I switched things up for February to help me get more done. Get a new phone...Have you met my iPhone 4? I'm in love. :)
- Compile my online portfolio materials...I started work, but then lagged behind. :)
- Finish a clients work...Interview process is taking longer than I expected. I still need to finish two more interviews, but it is going & I'm enjoying it.
There you have it. My February intentions are next; I will share them the first week of March. Until then, wish me luck as I slay monsters step by step, little by little, day by day, poco a poco.
The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first steps.
Beloved, You are Loved Absolutely!
