"Throughout history wise men and women have encouraged us to feel grateful for what we have.
Why? Very simply because gratitude makes us feel good. When you're feeling grateful, your mind is clear, and therefore you have access to your greatest wisdom and common sense. You see the big picture."

- Richard Carlson, Ph.D., (1995)

Findingaway check-in 4.30 pm

 My weekend now (Saturday). Did not check in Friday, worked in office away from home where I can't check in, but it was a productive day.

Today I have handed out at elections for 2 hours, had a nap (really needed a rest) and checked emails. I am going to pray for peace in my relationships, practice piano and go out this evening. That's all!

tracy - friday check in

Hi All,


Checking in on Friday. Basics: 1. reading - done;  2. gratitudes - done; 3. prayer - done; 4. affirmation - done; 5. check calendar - done; 6. plan to plan - done


Am moving. Packing, boxes, garage, sticking with it. Movers come tomorrow.

Will check in later.   



Back at it

So my time away from work was longer than anticipated, but I am now completing my second week in my new position. The first week flew by with orientations and such, and very little work. This week has also been light, but I am aware that my procrastinating tendencies are still with me. It doesn't seem to matter whether I am under duress or if the load is light, I want to avoid dealing with things. This morning I have already put off the few items I need to do while I checked and rechecked email. So I am returning to the goal-setting and bookending approach that helped me through the dark period towards the end of my previous job.

Goal 1: 11:25-11:45 AM: Quick lunch Actual end: 12:05 PM

Goal 2: 11:45 AM - 12:05 PM: Journaling Actual time 12:10-12:44 PM

Goal 3: 12:05-12:25 PM: Preliminary review of a new case

Goal 4: 12:25-12:45 PM: Complete some online paperwork

Back to report later.  

Actual time: 7:21 PM Got it all done, but it took me all day.

Good morning!  Back in the office after yesterday's holiday / on call day.   It wasn't too bad, we had some issues but I only had to work about 4 hours.  I have two problems to follow up on today; one is done (waiting for someone else now), and the other I will do right now.  Then, to do list for the rest of the day.
