I’m setting an intention for the next four months. This post will give you the background. of where I ‘m coming from and how this came up. Summary I’m more focused when I have a list, schedule and a deadline.
I choose schedule as my intention (word) for the next four months. I want to end 2020 strong. To have accomplished a few projects. I figure by setting schedule as my intention it makes it real, gives me focus and a deadline.
My deadline is October 31 to finish editing/revising a novel that has been sitting in my documents for longer then I care to admit . I want to participate in National Novel Writing Month in November so want these edits completed by them. It feels good to have a deadline as I have to break it down into X many pages a day. Doable.
Breaking a larger project down makes it more manageable. I’m not editing a novel. I ‘m editing 3-5 pages a day. That seems doable. It is a concrete number. Some days I might edit more and others less but by the end of the week it should even out.
I have been focusing on my intention the past week and it is working. I have the card (above) on my desk where I can see. It is great reminder of what my intention is for the next four months. Have to say I’m liking breaking the year down into four month sessions. A new intention each quarter. This allows me to me to shake the year up and focus on what I need to do each quarter.
So schedule is my intention until December 31. I feel good about it. This has been sitting in documents for a while now. This won’t be the final run through but it will move it forward and that is what it is all about.
