I know myself if I say that I am doing something as a new years resolution. I’ll just forget about it. A list with no plan doesn’t work for me.
What I’m doing is making a list of all the things that I want to do. Things for my personal life, things for my personal life, and things I want to do for fun.
Now after I’ve written all the things I want to do. I am making a realistic plan for doing these things. You cannot really say that when you never go to a gym that saying that suddenly going to start going three times a day. People do it but let’s be honest. If you want to make a pattern, it’s much better to start small and build up. So that’s what I’m doing is making a realistic timeline for me to do things. I’m not trying to rush it or stress it to be fair.
I’m not even limiting it to the end of the year. What I’m trying to do, is make plans that I can be consistent with keeping. I am making a table with three columns. Things I will do every week, every other week, and every month.
|Every week||Every other week||Every Month|
|Read one chapter of a fantasy book.||Face mask.||Do an outside based activity.|
|Two lessons of Duolingo.||Make a blog post about comics or film.||Try out a new recipe.|
|Make a blog post.||Have one chapter written and revised.|
Here’s a taste of what I’m going working on doing. I’ll keep you updated in a month to see if it actually worked for me.
