Create a Work Routine

Making progress, but I still don’t have a work routine I love.  So much work to do on this.  I’m hoping to get this ironed out in 2024.

Get 4 Posts Ahead for Work: 0% Accomplished

And, I used the post I had written in advance, so I’m back to being no posts ahead.

I am two posts ahead, but I need to proof read them and finalize them so they’re ready to go when I’m too busy.  Progress!

Read 2 Books: 100% Accomplished!

Cover of Holly by Stephen King

I have finished both Stephen King’s new book, Holly and Jill Duggar’s Counting the Cost.  I have completed this goal.  I’ve finally gotten into In the Pines: A Lynching, A Lie, a Reckoning, but I’m in the middle of a brutal lynching, and I don’t want to finish reading that scene, so I haven’t picked up the book much this week.  I continued listening to Remarkably Bright Creatures on my one-hour round-trip to grocery shop.

Study Japanese for 1,500 Minutes: 9.6% Accomplished

I didn’t study Japanese this week. I studied a grand total of 144 minutes over the last eleven weeks. 

Final Thoughts

I’m curious–when you set goals, do you set them yearly, monthly, or weekly?
