Get More Done On The Longest Day Of The Year

Last week is gone, and the new one is already far spent. It’s past time to reflect on how I did on my goals last week and what I plan to accomplish this week.

LAST Week’s Goals/ plans
  • Read the Bible everyday – I did
  • Read 3 books – I read a lot but didn’t finish anything. I started The Physics of Everyday Things, Think and Grow Rich (a reread) and The Icarus Deception. I am on track to finish all of them this week.
  • Blog everyday – I did
  • Create 2 YouTube videos – I just didn’t get around to making any videos.
  • Support someone else’s goals – I think I accomplished this
  • Finish a creative writing project by working on it daily – Almost finished
  • Save – yes
  • Register youth group event (the deadline is on Tuesday)
  • Organize 2 outings for my youth group  – I did
  • Run outdoors every day – I missed Thursday but I made up for it later
  • Complete the ShaunT workout challenge – I couldn’t access the online workouts online so I just did my own thing. I’m still considering this a success

Here, it looks like I am getting ahead but I am not satisfied with my progress so my goals have to be a little more rigid this week. Also, this Wednesday is the summer solstice so the longest day of the year happens this week. Does this mean that I can get more done on that day? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

This Week’s Goals/ Intentions
  • Read the Bible everyday
  • Read 3 books (I’m participating in a BookSwapAThon readathon so I think I’ll make it)
  • Blog everyday
  • Create 2 YouTube videos
  • Support someone else’s goals
  • Write creatively everyday
  • Save
  • Run outdoors every day
  • Strength train 3 times this week

And of course,  the daily workout challenge continues. A few weeks ago, I started a daily run-walk challenge with my virtual running-buddy. Weekend schedules are a little less predictable so our challenge is only for weekdays. Last week, I missed Thursday so I made up for it and ran 2.2 miles on Sunday. And that was the end of week 6.

Today is the beginning of week 7 of the challenge and my goal is to run 12 cumulative miles by Friday by logging these numbers daily:

  • Monday: 2 miles Update: I ran 2 miles on Monday so it feels like the week started off right  
  • Tuesday: 2.25 miles
  • Wednesday 3.25 miles
  • Thursday: 2.25 miles
  • Friday: 2.25 miles

Let me know in the comments if you’d like to join the challenge so I can add you to the daily tracker.
