July Goals Meetup!

I have a lot to do in the next few months so I've decided to join the Goals Meetup to help keep me on track. Whenever I need to get a lot done in a short time, I make a detailed list, so the Meetup is a perfect fit for me.

You may notice that my list is very specific, with some projects broken down into steps. I know that isn't necessary for most people, but it really helps keep me focused and it helps me to plan my time more effectively. Besides, I really like crossing things off my list! It helps me feel accomplished and keep me feeling motivated!

Many thanks to Candy for introducing me to the Meetup. I've always been inspired by her lists and accomplishments. And thanks to Athena Dreams for putting this together each month.

I've got a lot to do this month (my personal to do list is even longer!), so I had better get to it. Wish me luck!

Hmmm...wondering if the reason my to do list does not seem to be getting shorter is because I am not breaking it down into smaller tasks...

Here's an attagirl for you:

Welcome to the meet-up, Cindy. Your list looks great. Don't forget to leave yourself time to do nothing! You asked about the sketchbook project. Here is their site: http://arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookproject They also have facebook pages here: http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/The-Sketchbook-Project/112628252109619?ref=search and here: http://www.facebook.com/arthousecoop. Let me know if you join. I will be posting pages from my book once I really get going.

Welcome Cindy! Part of what makes The Meetup interesting is seeing how people put together the to do lists for the month. I think your detailed list is fantastic. Good luck checking things off this month!
