There. I said it. I named my first post of the month an alliteration. Why not keep up the goal eh? I like making monthly plans and I like evaluating them at the end - I still have 4 weeks of writing whatever I want if I stick to that.

It's funny, at this very moment, I'm between reading the latest entry from @jasonleow and chatting to Nay. He is talking about the problems with goals, but here I am making more.

I was lenient on myself last month - and I was grateful for it. Often, especially as makers, we put too much pressure on ourselves to get things done. Too many tasks, too many challenges, too much difficulty.

This month, my plan is simple again: be more organised.

I'm usually okay when it comes to my organisation. Hell, I've managed to keep several streaks going for 6 months. I can definitely improve.

Part of my goal to be organised this month is as follows:

  • Plan my week on Sunday evening
  • Plan my day in the morning
  • Plan routine tasks (exercise, teeth, 200WAD, Makerlog, Duolingo, reading and what I call "Calajo Time") - more details on these tomorrow!
  • Remember not to overload myself with tasks and goals

    @craigpetterson - Being organized will shoot your productivity through the roof. This is a very good goal to have. I am sure you will encounter a lot of benefits you didn't expect from being organized.
    Good luck with October.

      @keni oooh excellent. Hidden benefits are always good!

      Do you tend to organise your days/weeks? Any advice?

    @craigpetterson haha dang I wanted an alliteration for Oct too, but can't find any word that starts with "o" that means joy or play. 🤷‍♂️ I love it that we're swapping places - I'm going more lenient on myself this month, in a way. Maybe in Nov we'll swop again hah

      @craigpetterson @jasonleow - :) I am doing the opposite. I liked my energy in September so I want to keep going. I have a trip planned for November so that will be the month I will chill. October is another serious month for me.

      @jasonleow @keni I would have spent much longer thinking about it! It's my thing now haha xD

      Always good to have people doing the same - it helps with validation, collaboration and health competition (improvement) but on the flip side, it's good to have people doing different things to help with creativity, exploration and again, healthy competition (X vs Y)

      I'm going to make a note of this paragraph for another entry... haha

      @craigpetterson yes! Explorations vs exploitation...good to have varying degrees of both.
