In Pursuit of an Organized Life

System Update

on March 25, 2012

I’m liking my new system for routine activities. It’s low tech, but it’s functional. It feels satisfying to transfer a card from “To Do” to “Done”.  In many ways more so than crossing it off a list.  I love the fact that I can take them out and move them around to plan out my day or look at what I’ve accomplished.  The different colors help to see if I’m out of balance in one area.  I can see quickly that I haven’t done any fitness related tasks or that I only have a few chores left to do.

I have a few tasks that I will likely change.   I can probably take out—“Take a shower”.   While it’s sometimes relaxing, its mostly just something that gets done.  I probably don’t need a card to remind me of it either.  I’ll have to think of some other self care item to replace it with.  I’m not sure what though.   It feels like I’ve gone away some of my old interests, but haven’t found new ones to replace it yet.  On the other hand, my fitness goals are fufilling that area as well.  I’ll probably change some of the chores as I figure out who does what with my husband.

I was going to post a picture of my system, but I can’t find the camera.   I better put “Clean Counter” and “Tidy Family Room” higher on my list.   😉
