So I noticed I had too many tasks to accomplish in one day, there were no time boundaries around daily tasks, and I was missing some of my physical exercises, like walking, dancing and organizing. Writing weekly posts are a habit that hasn’t easily kicked in yet. 

When I looked around for inspiration, I rediscovered the [SMART] acronym in Michael Hyatt’s post:
    •    Specific Have you been specific about what you want to achieve?
    •    Measurable How will you know if you’ve reached your goal?
    •    Achievable Is this a goal that you can make happen?
    •    Relevant Is this goal aligned with your mission, vision, and values?
    •    Time Specific When do you want to achieve this goal?
    
 After reflection I prioritized three items I then applied these with intent, using a timer to ascertain the reality, and time limits to set a maximum. I then planned physical breaks so I would feel the ned to move.
 
Specifically, I CHOSE this course of action!
1. 3- 5 hours in studio 10 -12 create work on sketches mind maps for refuge, time travel water, journals and how they interact.
2. Take breaks every 1.5 - 2 hours and do physical
3. Get post and social out in the morning by 10:30

Thus journaling helps before you go too far off course!
It just becomes a redirect; I don’t waste time/energy blaming anymore!
