kromer top- and bottomlines
I feel like I've stalled out in working this program, and am slipping into websurfing and other old bad habits rather than moving forwards to where I want to be.
So I'm going to use this space to set out some top- and bottom- lines for my behavior, then I'll commit to updating this thread every day for a month with performance on my bottomlines.
Promise that I'm striving toward (from "Promises of Recovery for PA"): We will not fear the future, nor wish to shut the door on it.
*I am on time to work, social events and appointments
*I have a manageable to-do list, and complete it most days
*I have routines but they are not straightjackets; I can alter them when needed
*I can account for where my time has gone each day
*I schedule breaks rather than sneaking them through procrastination
*I am organized and can easily find papers when I need them. The space around me is clean and makes me calm, rather than full of clutter and anxiety-provoking
*Work the program: CI every day, go to meeting at least once every 2 weeks, quick prayer every morning
*Limit internet (this is the big, scary one): limit the following sites to only btwn 8pm and 12:30am, 20 min per hr max during this time (using leechblock at home, and I'll see if I can install it at work as well): thedailywtf, facebook, theonion,slate,slashdot.
*Mange clutter: Every evening, spend 15 min tidying
Will check back every day to say how I'm doing w/ these goals.
