Its not that time of the year without one or two regrets pulling you up for not fulfilling your earnestly made New Year resolution. Yes people its October and we are now less than a hundred days away from 2020. Have you noticed it yet?
Last year I had happily settled into a pact of making the last 100 days count by doing meaningful things for self and others. I think I had some fun doing this and largely achieved the goal set within it. Missed setting it this year and that’s largely due to the hibernation state I have been in all year long.
I would have to judge it as one of my least productive year as I have been pretty much lax in everything – work, writing, photography, travel, fitness regime, reading, artwork ………. The list goes on!
And I have arrived at this conclusion as I sat down to write this post for Words Matter blog hop.
Intrigued? Pin it for later!
So my dear readers, I think its time I give one more try to pulling up my socks and getting around to doing something this year. I cant let it end on such a dismal note now, can I? Setting up doable goals as I sure as hell wont be able to commit to the whole shabam in one go.
So I am sharing my game plan with you in earnest hope that you will gang up on me or with me and push me to achieve these goals. You can say I am looking for “buddies” to cheer me on everyday to do at least 2 things on my task list daily. I am inspired by a whole lot of you as your positive updates, keep kicking my lazy ass. Are you with me?
I keep on mentally kicking myself whenever I see a positive post about achieving fitness goals of the day on my timeline from many of my friends. Rachna Sanch Rajlakshmi Parul – you are on top of my envy list 😉
I had joined CULT again for the yoga classes but going to the gym has been draining for me. Abandoning this plan totally as its just not being put into action.
I have decided to go for a morning walk for at least 12 days in the month which comes down to thrice a week. This means alternate days in the week with Sunday a holiday. The goal is 4 kms in 50 minutes and I think in a week I should be up to this pace. I am hoping to walk a 150 kms in these last 100 days of the year. So who will successfully “bully” me on this, I do wonder?
Sundays I will try to start going out for the photography/nature walks that I used to so love doing. So many of Delhi’s treasured monuments are now being lit up in a dazzling lighting display. I must really dust out the gear and start with coming Sunday. Plus will be the extra walking that I will end up doing via this activity 😉
I had finally set up the art table but then digressed as laziness whispered seductively in my ears. In a bid to be immune to her charms, I have decided to complete the mosaic water bowl thats been languishing on my desk due to lack of supplies. This will be a Monday thing, inspired from Shilpa’s arty mornings 🙂 Wish me luck!
I read Corinne’s post today which spoke about setting up a daily writing goal which could be for as much as 500 words or a letter or a para. This got me thinking about an email I had received from a dear blogger friend Sunita who literally kicked my butt for not writing.
So setting both these feedback into my goal, I am going to
- write 2 posts per week on the blog.
- write and receive 2 guest posts for the blog.
- I will also get around to write some of the fan mail I have been meaning to write to authors I really love reading. Two letters a week is what I am aiming for – fingers crossed!!!
I think this will be pretty doable for me as I have put in the right incentives into this – what do you think?
So these are the four things I am going to commit to push myself to achieve some milestones in for the moment. Hoping to see some positive bullying from my well wishers in this endeavor. Cheers to the last 100 days of 2019 guys!
