Two Goals

I am going to try some goals again, in a format that is less ambitious and perhaps more realistic. I will put forth two – an ongoing goal for the next 30 days and a short term, one-time goal to accomplish in the next 30 days. This has several improvements over my last attempt:

  • Smaller scale – more manageable and reasonable to achieve
  • Definitive time scale – in 30 days, I wil know percentage of completion on the ongoing task, and whether the short-term goal has been achieved.

Both of these improvements will, I hope, help me be more accountable to myself.

And now, for the goals.

  1. Over the next 30 days, I will be awake by 6:00 am every day.
  2. Within 30 days, I will have moved into a residence West of Lake Washington.

    Instead of a post each day just about this (although I may roll it into another post) I think I will post my prgress as comments, so it is all in one place…
