Goals & Actions (who needs the new year?)

I've been making changes!

In the last year I have managed to consistently achieve:
— Eating healthier (90+ pounds lost to date!)
— Getting to work on time regularly (Late only twice without a pre-established reason like an appointment and both were because morning errands ran over unexpectedly.)
— Paying bills on time (I always had the money. I just put it off sometimes for a month *cough* But that is in the past!)
— Improve household chores (I've been doing laundry weekly and dishes never sit more than 2 days. This still needs improvement, but it's something!)

And now I think I'm ready to make some other changes so here are a few things I want to work on and some steps I'm going to try taking to meet these goals.



1. Be more efficient at work
— No plurk at work unless I am done with EVERYTHING.
— No gmail/gchat at work until lunch.
— Complete that day's timesheet before I leave for the day.
— Update work to do list daily.
— Clean out inbox daily.

I am...2 months behind in timesheets I think. I am bad at them when we are slow because I don't know what to write and bad at them when we are busy because I have no time to fill them out. And on the in between days if I have a backlog of them I feel like I shouldn't even start if I don't have time to get them done and I need to BREAK that feeling!

2. Increase physical activity
— Continue doing core exercises as prescribed by chiropractor.
— Get up at least once a (waking) hour and walk around even at work.
— 30 minutes of treadmill/week to start.

For 5 weeks I walked at least a mile within 30 minutes 4 times a week. Aaaaand then the basement flooding distracted me and it all stopped. I want to start small and see if I can get consistency before I push so much again.

3. Improve tag return time
— Make an effort to end threads at a reasonable point instead of going on endlessly without purpose.
— Complete tags in batches of three, seeing each of these sets as an achievement.
— Dedicate half an hour each day to serious tagging. Time self and get a final count. Race against my personal best each time.

I've been saying this forever. I dropped a character recently in order to help a little, but I need some concrete steps. I hope these help. I'm also open to suggestion as I look for what works for me.

FYI, this is all pretty inspiring to me. I'M SURE YOU'LL DO GREAT, JUST LIKE YOU'VE BEEN DOING GREAT AT THE REST OF IT JEEZ.
