Not keeping up

So, back in December I wrote about a bunch of plans for 2017. And so far, I've done a very poor job of hitting any of them. Here's a rundown

Quite Time Alone: I've done this a few times, and I find it very invigorating, but also not something I can do a lot. My mind tends to wander and I don't get the full experience so much as a meandering walk through my thoughts. Not that such a walk is a bad thing. Its allowed me to work through issues or ideas. But its not what I want to get out of it. I plan to redouble my efforts to spend some time along each week.

Meditation: I've done alright on this. While I haven't done 15 minutes 3 days a week, what I have done is 10 minutes 2-3 mornings a week. As for the mindfulness meditation, I've given up on that specific idea as not really for me. I've also added a weekly yoga practice to my mind/body regiment.

Reading: I haven't "read" as much recently. Part of this is because of a change to the audiobook checkout system my library uses that has mostly locked me out.

Professional Development: This is still ongoing. While I haven't made progress, I didn't set any short term goals either.

HPR: I haven't done an HPR show, yet. But I do have one in the planning stages. We'll see how quickly I get this turned out.

Writing: As is abundantly clear, I haven't been writing nearly as much as I'd planned on. Part of that is that I don't have as much to say as I thought. Part of it is that when I do, I'm not in a place to say it. Part of it is lack of energy. And part of it is simple laziness.

So, there it is. I'll try to do a better job going forward.
