Well this is another post that is almost a week late. I had decided at the beginning of the year that I was going to go about goals and tracking them several different ways. One of the ways is my month in review posts, and the list of goals within each month. For the most part they don’t really change, and they’re focused on just a few areas (career, health and fitness, and a slight mix of other areas). The second way I’ve been trying to do things is looking at my life from the perspective of a Level 10 life. Basically, this breaks life down into ten different areas, and then you rate those areas on a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being the highest). After rating the different areas, you can then make a goal for each one that you want to work on improving.
So for the most part, there was little change between this analysis of my Level 10 life and the one I did at the beginning of July. Though I did have upward progression in a few areas:
I’ve gotten back into trying to do a daily tarot card reading, which is helping me tune into listening to the universe and my gut a little more. I’m also getting back into try to mediate at least 5 minute each night (sometimes I can quiet my mind and sometimes I can’t). So I bumped the rating for spirituality up from a 3.5 to a 5.
I’ve also managed to put a little more money into the savings account (so I bumped this up from a four to a five for finances), and while the savings may take a small hit since I’m going to be trying to plan a trip out east for later this month, it is sitting at a comfortable spot currently.
I also managed to finish LIIFT4 (which is the first fitness program in probably a year that I’ve finished), and have also managed to limit the amount of sweets that I’ve been getting on campus (though the past few days I did buy some chocolate). I therefore raised the rating for my health and fitness from a 2.5 to a 5.
The other areas really didn’t change all that much from the analysis in July to the analysis this morning.
So my goals for the last quarter of the year include:
(Family and Friends): Getting in touch with friends via social media; and maybe trying to meet up with friends back east.
(Personal Development): Continue with my reading challenge, and commit to either re-learning a foreign language and/or learning a programming language.
(Spirituality): Continue with trying to mediate at least 5 minutes a night, my daily tarot card reading, and build my altar.
(Fiances): Continue with savings challenges, and try to schedule an appointment with a financial consultant to talk about investments
(Career): Work on my transition plan, network, and try to make it to at least one professional networking event out of state.
(Social Life): Meet up with friends for lunch, or walks, and/or also try to make it a Cheeky Scientist Meet-up
(Fun & Recreation): Work on my crafts a little more: including more photography, knitting, jewelry making, and free hand drawing.
(Giving and Contributions): Go through clothes to see what I can donate
(Physical Environment): Continue straightening up the bedroom (it always looks like a tornado has gone through it by the weekend) and work on repacking boxes in my storage unit.
(Health and Fitness): Continue with the hybrid workout calendar: LIIFT4 mixed with InsanityMax30 (and maybe 22 Minute Hard Corps); and making sure that I’m also practicing mindful eating.
