Taking Stock

So I’m looking at my Don’t Break the Chain calendar aaaand while the first two months went pretty well (and by that I mean I’d remember at the end of the week to go back and mark the days that I did things), March really fell off. I’m looking at starting a different system that is hopefully a little more organized and something that I carry around so that I remember to do it.

I find myself constantly fluxing between skimming and trying to go deeper. I want to have deep relationships. I want to live well. But sometimes I get into this rut. I want to follow a script of what I think will make me happy and I get so focussed on what my (self written) script says that I miss out on the good things that are around me. I think being 1/4 of the way through the year means it’s a good time to reflect and see what I really want to do. Maybe it’ll even happen this weekend.

I need to stop doing and just be.

One thought on “Taking Stock

    At the beginning of the year I created something similar for myself and I’ve found myself getting increasingly stressed out when I don’t get everything done that I want to in a day. The truth is, life and people happen, and sometimes they are just as or more important. Now, I’m finding it much easier to prioritize, schedule, and make goals on a weekly basis, but I think I still need to go with the flow and be ok with taking things slowly.

    tl;dr version, I feel you. Good luck!
