Again, I decided to use my template…
Goal: Keep up with my blogging. I’m pretty much on track. Instead of starting a new blog about menopause, I’ve decided to post about it on my other sites from time to time. Thursdays free2soar post reads as follows:
Responsibilities – Numerous
Ambition – Non-existent
Menopause – Today’s winner
Goal: Work on Deb’s book five days per week. This goal has been slightly revised. Deb and I have set up phone meetings. We have developed a new list of priorities, and it’s all getting very exciting. It is my goal to get the book proposal ready by September 9. When this book gets picked up by an agent and/or a publisher, you’ll be able to hear us cheering no matter where you live.
Goal: Read through a manuscript I will be editing. I’ve completed the read-through. I intend to give the author a call within the next two weeks to discuss how she wants me to go about the editing. Before that, I want to come up with several angles that would make great magazine articles so we have an option if she decides not to go ahead with it in book form.
Goal: Research and write an article I’m working on. This has proven more challenging than I thought. I want it to be more than a copy and paste kind of thing. I hope to have at least the first solid draft (perhaps the final draft) done by the end of the day.
Goal: Write my essay and research paper for my doula certification. If I devote a couple of days to the essay and three to the research paper, I should be able to get them done in short order. I have set the end of September as my new deadline. Not much change here…except I’m on track for the required reading. I would like to have almost all – if not all – of the requirements for certification done by the end of the year.
Goal: Encourage at least five ROWers each week. This past week was a good one. I’ll try to keep it up.
Goal: Figure out what we ROWers can do to celebrate when this round is done. Maybe we can have one final check-in the week after this round so we can share with one another what we did to celebrate. It’s not the same as celebrating together, but it’s something.
Have a wonderfully productive week, all.
