Are You On Track?

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Do you remember what resolution or word you chose to encourage you or make a significant difference in your life this year. We're already beyond that halfway mark for the year. So how are you doing? I went the Debbie Macomber way and picked One Word to carry with me through the year. The word I chose was organize and I've made some headway both at home, at my day job and with my writing.

My counseling office
  1. Home- I've picked little tasks to tackle. A corner here, a stack of books there, a trip to Goodwill with clothes that don't fit now and then. Small but helpful steps toward a more organized home.
  2. Day Job- I got lots of help with this one. I came back from a vacation and found that my office had been painted and all the mess packed away in boxes for me to go through, and I am. It's awesome. Sometimes we do need a little or a lot of help from our friends.
  3. Writing- I've become more organized with how I approach a project. Yes, I'm a seat of the pants writer which probably contributes to my disorganization within my writing projects. But I've become a bit more organized within those parameters. A little plotting here and a little time line there and it's a bit easier.
So no matter how great or small your progress with whatever word or resolution you chose for the year the important thing is to move forward. If you've fallen out of step with your plan now's the time to get back on track. Every day is new.

Are you on track?


  1. No! But...I will be! I get to move into my new classroom next month and I WILL be ORGANIZED!!

    Organization is something I have been working on for a few months. It isn't easy, but I have been reading up on it. I plan to have an organized classroom for my students and myself.

    So, I will be on track very soon!

  2. Way to go, Ruth! It's a lot harder than I ever thought it would be since it's so easy to get caught up in so many other things. I look forward to hearing how it goes. You'll have to post on this topic when you're close to starting the teaching year.

  3. Jillian, I think mine word(s)was paper clutter, but I'm falling behind a bit. Did great January through April, then gardening season hit and not so great. Too many weeds to pick (and that's still going one) and gardens to visit, (which are being posted on my blog). BTW, your office looks great!

  4. Hi Catherine,
    Just think of your clutter as weeds.:)I love my office now. Still have to sort through some boxes but it's wonderful. I'm going to buy some beach pictures to make it even more relaxing for me and my college students.
