In Pursuit of an Organized Life

. . . putting life in order

Promise of Productivity

I woke up at 4 unable to fall back asleep. I meditated and tried to be still in order to not wake my husband and give sleep another try. After a half hour, I realized it wasn’t going to happen—so I got up. Honestly, I love the early morning solitude before the family awakens so I didn’t try too hard. I ordered some materials for school and replied to emails. Good things, but not house hold chores related which I am severely behind on. My system worked great the first week and I didn’t use it this past week. The chances of a system working if I don’t use them are slim.

I frequently tell myself that I will do specific tasks sometime in the future. My internal motivation has not taken care of it yet so I’m trying out some peer pressure. I realize the odds of someone hunting me down if I say something in my blog and don’t do it are slim, but it adds a sense of accountability and is worth a try.

Below are list of things I want to get done today or this weekend. Wish me luck!!


  • Sweep (and Ideally wash) floor
  • Empty/Load dishwasher
  • Plan for School¬† Monday and Tuesday
  • Go to Tabata
  • Watch Awake or movie
  • Blog again
  • Talk to my mom
  • Make Stir Fry

I’d like to get done/Would be nice, but may not happen this weekend

  • Clean out car (in DESPERATE need)—-its hard for me to motivate myself to do it when its cold
  • Clean out/switch purses
  • Read more of my book
  • Take Bath
  • Clean bathrooms
  • Go for run
  • Plan for school Wed, Thurs, Friday
  • Draft student report
  • Be social—phone friend, get together with friend/family, schedule future social event

That’s probably plenty for this weekend.¬† Enjoy your day!
