Let’s Try This ROW 80 Diddlybop Again

After reading Barbara McDowell’s blog I realized I have been slacking… I also noticed that when I set goals, I set them too high.  I don’t meet them, sulk, pout and then say, “what is the point?”  Self-sabotage maybe?

So after reading Barbara’s blog, I was stoked.  She broke her goals down in a simple way that seemed easier than tracing ABC’s.

I am going to take another stab at this ROW jaun.

October 3 – November 15

  • Writing

Write 50 words a day on WIP. If I go over, yay!  50 is attainable.

  • Blogging

Write 1 blog entry weekly on main blog.    Write 1 entry a week on 80’s blog.  Continue to update Blogspot blog each Sunday.

  • Reading

Read 7-10 blogs a week.  Comment on each blog.  Read my darn Kindle!

  • The Craft

I picked up a great book on memoir writing.  Read a chapter a week in this book.  Do the exercises.

  • Health

I have been slacking in this area.   Start walking each day.  20 minute minimum.  Get my butt to the gym 3x a week.

No more McDonald’s!  I think I have enough colorful Coke glasses at this point.

  • Sobriety

One AA meeting a week.  Talk to my sponsor if any life occurrences come up.

  • Me!

For the love of marshmallows, do something fun once a week.  A favorite movie, troll a used book store, walk in the park.  I am getting a new camera in a few weeks, so I’ll be adding photography to my list of hobbies..

Happy ROWing everyone!!

  1. I’m continually intrigued by how different people handle goals. I’m still struggling with whether it’s better for me to fail at trying to hit a too-high goal or easily achieve a smaller goal. What gets more done for me? Which is better for my psyche? After three rounds I’m still figuring it out!

    Anyway, best of luck on your goals!

    1. Hey Sonia… I agree. ROW80 is flexible. I like that I can go at my own pace, rather than give my family a one month supply of canned ravioli and bid them good luck.
      My first time in my goals were ridiculous! I wimped out and felt beaten.
      This time.. I shall have the last laugh! Moo ha ha.

      Best of luck to you in this round, Sonia. 😀
