Jack's Daily Check-in
I am currently working the Steps in another fellowship, and have been guided to pick up some of the wonderful P.A. tools again. I thought I would try Tool 10, bookending my daily tasks today with a daily check-in. For some reason I couldn't start a new thread, so I thought I'd recycle this old one from last year.
If anyone would like to use this thread today as well, feel free to do so. Please do not reply to this thread so that I can keep editing it, though prayers are welcome!

marcelor Monday CI
Struggling today and unfortunately must say that the above quote does not always hold true for me :-( Fear often follows action in my case. I fear whatever response/reaction is going to result from the action. I think the answer is to keep taking action, but I often tend to freeze...
Oh well: so far the morning routine is still working pretty well so I want to stick with it.
Today I will:
buy gift and post
spend one pomo on B email
respond to email from C
reach out to J

Back from a cold
First day back at work after a cold. Started convincing myself I am a fake at my job and I'm about to get found out.
I'm going to take this week one day at a time, and just settle back in , lremember to breathe and hand it over to a power greater than myself.
Today my plan is to
Glad you were able to connect with me via email.

--- yea a couple times. Lord help me Love everyone as job 1.
--- not bad, but there were some sketchy times. Lord help me love always.
--- not chatted a new site so much. Got to limit time. It helped my mood greatly, but impacted my productivity. Need to tune this better.
--- I did suffer from some ego today. Lord disabuse me of this habit.

Thanks to Mole for starting this thread &sharing, thanks also to Lennon for sharing and clement &Gloria yesterday.
I admit that I am powerless over my procrastination and debt and that my life had become unmanageable. I came to believe that a Power greater than myself could restore me to sanity and I made a decision to turn my will and my life over to the care of God.
"Its not about the tasks - its about listening to the moment and going with the flow of the spirit.
Its not about the money, its about listening to the simplicity of need and contentment.
Its a big day today re volume of potential tasks vying - some really important & some just empting to pip higher tasks off the post. With gods help in the moment I'll be able to judge what to do best.
8awake - good rest, devotion
945 check in
My priorities today - 3 good study sessions - morning, afternoon, evening. Use timer
Wrt money- shouldn't need anything except milk &petrol.
Important & urgent tasks: Gina
Payroll: new paperwork
Ring Liam & n
Cancel Dr magnusson
Less important or urgent
Look up train v plane
Start research for Eddie- 15mins only
For sanity: some kind of exercise
Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord Almighty. zechariah 4:6
Good start with some impprtant jobs done efficiently- apt cancelled, gina emailed, msg liam. also listened to one study podcast.
Then the mind tyranny started & its 1420 and almost sitting paralysed at desk as lists of to'dos and worst case scenarios parade past! Just do them quickly as things are never as bad as they seem but they do getworse if you leave it! And its not about punishing yourself - your are a new creature, don't drag around old burdens.
So not by power or might:
ring Ian/Andrew - get new forms sent
study w timer until 1700
go for walk & print out forms
ring l & N; gran; research for ed
nighttime study - 2xtimer sessions
in bed by 10 lights out 11
still stuck but hopeful - new day tm
well - stilldidn't do any study but got to go to bed and rest so that tmr has the best chanc of a good day.
rest well everyone.
