March was a very tumultuous month for me. Lots and lots of good things happened, but I have never had so many technical issues ever on the blog as I had in the month of March.
If you also follow my facebook page, you will have noticed a few inspirational quotes, like the one above posted on the page! Through out the techno troubles I found it really helped to visualise what the end result was I was working towards. In this case it was a more secure site with a fabulous new design.
It didn’t make anything work better or quicker, but it reminded why I needed to persist and stay the course. I am still visualising this at the moment as I await for more changes to kick in behind the scenes so I can implement the new design…..
Personal Goals – March Review
I did however spend more time and emotional energy on the techno stuff, so it did impact on other goals I was trying to achieve.
|Goals for 2012||Key Tasks For March||Review March Activity|
|1. - Blog||- Complete make over of blog, to be completed by March.|
- Grow the blog to a business.
|Implement new design.|
Firm up business plan for 2012.
|The design is yet to go on the blog. Due to significant security issues with my host, I needed to changes hosts.
The transfer of the blog from one hosting provider to another is at this stage still not complete. Until this happens I cannot implement the new design :(.
|2. - Family||Reintroduce a regular games night.||The older boys have not been joining in as much as I would like. I need to be more creative with the games, so they will want to play.||Games night just hasn't worked for us. What has worked is a session at some point across the weekend that involves as much physical activity as possible!
So far we have done things like:
- Soccer game
- British bulldog
- Air hockey tournament
These types of activities have been so much fun and enjoyed by all.
|3. - Partner||Weekend away on our own (carry over from 2011!)||Lock down a date for when we will do this and explore options for the kids.||How hard could it possibly be to lock down a date? Not done as yet...... onto next month's task this goes.|
|4. - Me||Change the way I eat - more balanced (less carbs).||Find new lunch ideas that do not involve bread!||First half of the month was fantastic. As the techno issues engulfed me, I went back to what was easy, what was known and comfort carb eating! Another one for next month as well!|
