I have been racking my brain trying to figure out how I can get some steady consistency toward my goals and I have to admit the only method that might fit my role oriented system is making lists each day to check off things that will take me closer to my goal. This means running through my list of roles each day and writing down one thing I have to do that day to fulfil that role for the day. As a way of working out how this will work I want to do my first one here and then I will probably use a separate notebook for this task.
I thinking there are a few rules to follow here as well. 1) Make the list the night before so it is ready to go for the next day, 2) I can also cross off a task that day if I add another task to another area. This second rule might be a good response to a day that gets too full or a role that is simple going to require more work that particular day. There I also the fact that on some days, some roles are just not engaged. For this one I want to also add some of the other things that could be there
Here We Go for August 14, 2016:
Leader – Send email to school superintendent asking if there are any plans to have town hall style meetings for all of us candidates. We have seven of us trying to win four seats so I would like to know what role the current school board would be having in helping the process. I want to do it tomorrow so it is waiting for him on Monday morning. Other things that could go here – blog entry for the Rabyd Libertarian, going of over meeting notes for the MOISD and any other thing that involves me in politics ad leadership/
Minister – Two things. Sunday School (teaching) and service. Because this is two things I have a free thing to pull form somewhere else. Other things that cold go here are prep actions and planning. Going to Ministerial meetings, etc. Anything that involves me being the pastor of the church.
Theologian – Catch up in Sermon Redux posts. Because there will be four of them I will count this and two activities which means one other area will have a free space. Mostly this will be blogging on All Things Rabyd.
Writer – Write for a half hour – either book idea can be worked on. It may be that some homework will be here from time to time as well.
Scholar – Check school email. Not much to do yet but it will probably include homework that needs to be done that day plus reading tasks.
Steward – Clean of dinning room table. Small job, but cleaning and organizing for a fixed rate of time plus looking around and seeing things can be simplified or minimalized as an everyday process could be tasks here. It may also involve money tasks.
Weightlifter – Nothing. This is one of the task freed up so that I can be the Minister and Theologian tomorrow. Normally though this will be where my workout is scheduled and laid out.
Hiking – Nothing. The other task freed up so Theologian and Minister can be executed. Normally though this will record what hiking I will be doing with what. It could also be used to state tasks involving hiking research and acquiring equipment.
Nutrition – Need to make up a daily meal plan and then a shopping list based on it for the week . This might include taking my sugar in a special way or reminders of nutrition classes and research but mostly it will involve my meal plan and food journal.
After all things have been checked off for the day, it will be time to make up the next days list and then call it a day.
Blessings and Cheers!!!
