Regular Weekday




House Exercises


Read Book  for the book club.

arrive on time at the book club

Grocerry shopping

1. did not read the book a week ago as I had intended; did not actually finish it fully and felt sort of "fraudulent" in the book club as I hadnt given it the kind of thought it deserves.  another manifestation of my procrastination addiction

2. arrived 10 mts late at the book club, I felt really bad about it!!

3. I have two more books that are due on the 18 th and 21st March. I need to read them before I return them

4. Need to get back to normal schedule including making money as well as hitting the gym.

The difficulty in life is the choice.
—George Moore

How we choose to spend our time says much about what is important to us. If we have no goals, we may try to kill time. If we have too many goals, there may not be enough time in the day to do all we set out to do. We must make some choices based on our values. We may need to take more time for some things, and let go of others. For example, this year will we try to learn to play the guitar? Perhaps we have finally decided to drop out of that club which seems to have little purpose. Will we give more time to work, or less time? With each of these choices, we shape our lives. We can do it with the touch of an artist if we pay attention to the choices we are making.

What is truly important to me today?

Online Meeting PSA

hi everyone! there's no one signed up to lead the meeting ( which is Sunday March 18th at 3:30 pm new york time) so if you think you can do it, we would appreciate it! :)

on my phone so I can't link the sign up sheet but it is in the 'online meetings' forums. More info there. And it is really easy (mostly just copying and pasting) so even a newbie can do it! :)

hope everyone is having a great week!
