What I am going to do is define what I would need to have done in order to consider tomorrow (Monday) to be a productive day. I will be using FVP as my time management system.
I am going to use my list as it is - which has most of the tasks on it already. I’m not going to cheat by moving them all to the end of the list.
I’ll report back on how many of the tasks I succeed in doing.
So here goes - I would consider tomorrow to be a productive day if:
I have zero inbox at the end of the day in
Doing the dishes
I have walked at least four miles [5.17 miles]
I have done 100 press ups
I have done The Plank exercise for at least 90 seconds [110 seconds - ai yai yai!]
I have sold our unused car for scrap [got £60!]
I have, as Press Officer, edited the photos for yesterday’s Croquet Tournament, Friday’s Golf Tournament and last week’s Golf Club Dinner.
I have done at least one day’s Glossika French lesson [2 days’ Lessons]
I have listened to at least one chapter of Genesis and St Matthew’s Gospel in the original languages [2 chapters Genesis, 1 Exodus, 2 St Matthew]
I have sorted out my regular donation to the Bursary Fund
I have invited L to take part in September’s Charity walk
I have checked whether R has decided to take part in the walk.
I have emailed an update to those who have already agreed to take part in the above Charity Walk
I have said the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary
I have telephoned my dentist re work needed
I have read at least something in the Qu’ran and the Hadith
I have notified my bank about my forthcoming trip
I’ve written a second draft of my paper for the Finance Committee about Running a Legacy Campaign
I sorted out a new contract for my smart phone
