Goals For Today

Goals for today...

1. Sleep
2. Run
3. Plant daffodils

Sounds so simple when it's written out, right? Let's see what I can accomplish.

I worked the night shift last night and I have to go back tonight so that's why sleep is first on the list. I took the summer off running but I'm back at it. Today is one of those days where I will blow it off unless I consciously schedule it. And the daffodils... well, they jumped into my shopping cart at Meijer this week. I've wanted some Spring daffodils for a couple years now. I spent several days last week getting my yard cleaned up so it seemed serendipitous when I saw the bulbs on the clearance table this week and I snagged them. It's the end of October and it's suppose to get up to 70 degrees today. I think I was meant to have daffodils.

Yes, I'm back to blogging. Seems like I get more done when my thoughts are spelled out.

There are two efficiency "tools" if you can call them that I have learned this year. The first is more like a mantra.

Finish what you started.

Finish what you started, all at once. It is far more efficient to start one task and finish it before starting another. Focus and finish, whether it's a patient's chart or putting away laundry.

Going kind of hand in hand with this - make a list of the 5 most important things that you want to accomplish in a day, then do those 5 things. Do not start anything else until you get those 5 things done. Today I have the luxury of only 3 things. Let's see what I can do. Eight hours left before I have to go back to work. G'night !
