One Little Word Blog Hop - June Edition

Hello! Whether you arrived here from Amanda's Blog as part of the One Little Word Blog Hop, or you are here because you love me and drop by regularly... Welcome! I love visitors! 

As the May assignment for One Little Word, Ali asked us to create a "to do" list.  Where we are now, where we hope to be in a year.  And to pair that with another self-portrait.
I stuck with my monthly chart for the daily items.  And learned the hard way that I'm expecting too much from myself.  Trying to do tagging of photos and digi supplies while keeping up with Layout A Day - not possible! I need to save tagging for times when I'm not focusing on major scrapping!  So I know there are a lot of holes in this chart... but then again, look at all those check marks!

I used Ali's template, painted the edges red for some color (doesn't really look like paint in a scan). In addition to including tagging and LOAD in this list, I included a lot of one-time projects and things I'd been putting off.

Although I didn't complete the entire list, I realize now that it was overly ambitious and I need to be more realistic about what I can accomplish while life is still happening around me.  However, having the list did keep me FOCUSed on the things I wanted to accomplish and I definitely think it is worth using this tool again when I have one off projects that need to be done!

Look at all that exercise! Good for you! I'm definitely keeping my OLW "home" at the forefront of my mind, but I focus on different aspects of it each month. I've been working more on the relationships this month than cleaning our physical house or working on my artistic home. But it's all good.

Great job with your list! I didn't notice the "holes" but all the check marks. It's wonderful that you completed LOAD - that is an enormous accomplishment.

I'm so impressed with your tracking.

I also love the bright colors and fun that you add to this project!

Those checkmarks are impressive! I honestly didn't notice the blanks until you pointed them out; I just saw what a wonderful job you are doing. Congrats & best of luck for the second half of the year!

Congratulations on your daughter's graduation.
Wow! Look at your ambitious check list. I get tired just looking at all that you accomplished. And now I'm smacking myself in the head thinking "SCAN" I should scan my pages instead of trying to take a picture that no one can see. Now I know why everyone else can show their pictures so much better! Great job.

Gosh, you had a very busy month!

Karen said...

I love that worksheet. Since my OLW is balance, I am back to using a spreadsheet I made when I took a BPC course on using your time well. I think you had an awesome month.

Wow, that was a lot to accomplish! Love how you added color to the edges.

Missus Wookie said...

Spreadsheets should always be colourful :) Yeah for checkmarks and completing as much as you did.

Margaret said...

I know exactly what you mean about being overly ambitious. I have the same problem.

Melissa said...

Oh my goodness, there are definitely way more check marks on that list than there are blank spaces - way to go!!

Carolina said...

OMG!!!! I REALLY love your post!!!!

Naomi said...

Amazing how you hold yourself accountable. You are definitely incorporating your word into your every day life so well. And you have done so much!
