Slow Out of the Gate January 11 Check-In

I fear this will be a very quick check-in, with a promise that time will soon clear for me to do a better job of accountability.

How have I done on my goals?  A mixed bag, indeed, but not an empty one. I have met my sponsor responsibilities by visiting and encouraging several of you. I found that many of you are well on your way to meeting your goals right out of the gate. Go, you!

It was a full week at the day job, despite my continuing fight with the chest cold haunting me.  I managed to spend four hours reducing my work email, which is quite the voracious time monster.  I spent a few hours taming the paper tiger as well.

My co-author has taken the lead with the article revisions, but my turn will come this week. I did write a synopsis and biography for the March presentation, both tasks I truly despise.

I still have to work harder on meeting several of my goals, including getting in touch with a friend, plotting and outlining my memoir and my novel, and continuing self-care.

My life should become much easier in a couple of days, and I hope to have more to report soon!

Please go visit around the other ROWers, whom you can find here.  Encourage as you can, share strategies, make friends.  It is a wonderful community.

  1. Oh no Elizabeth. You caught the crud too? I’m so sorry you’ve been sick. I hope you feel better soon! And yet, look how much you were able to do! 🙂

  2. take care of that chest and bear in mind you don’t have to come out of gate running – slow and easy when body is not well – much better and more achieved in the long term – look after self and have a good week:)

  3. I’m also wishing you healthy again. Perhaps it’s not so bad to sip some hot tea on a blustery winter day as you recuperate. Your progress can be at whatever pace feels comfortable. Even a note or two will keep writing ideas coming along. May even your busy days at work go well in the coming week!

  4. It sounds like you have a pretty full list of ROW80 goal plus other responsibilities, so your mixed bag looks pretty well rounded with me. I hope you feel better soon! And give yourself a pat on the back–you got a lot done. 🙂
