First Half of 2008 Considered

Here we are, halfway through 2008.  Most of what I would call “New Year’s Resolutions” I keep drawn up on a little chart that I have posted in my planner, in my car, and at home (I actually see the one in my car the most–how sad).  Here’s the basic outline (each year, I fill in the boxes with a new goal or two):

It needs a little revision: my morning routine is fairly regular, but I’ve never been solid with weeknight routines; I’m just too tired by then. 

Also, I added an update for each goal on my 43 Things page.  I really like this site and hope it motivates me to keep working.  I’m a little discouraged that I don’t have more significant progress to report on much of anything, but I don’t want to give up on anything.  There’s too much good out there to let any of it pass me by.  I’d identify my priorities for the near future (meaning the rest of the year) as goals 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 8, 11, 17, 27, 34, and 36. 

With any luck, I can cram enough living for ten lifetimes into just this little one…

New goal for July: each night, say a prayer of nothing but gratitude.  No requests at all, just thank you’s.
