Don't Stop Till You Drop

So, I had a wonderful Shabbat. Truly incredible.
I put all of schoolwork aside and just focused on enjoying the goodness. Ahhh.

Naturally, I was thinking. Just about how I'm sooo not where I want to be at this point in my life. How I have so much growth and so many goals that I want to achieve. I really need to quit procastinating and start prioritizing. But...PROBLEM: they seem so...unreachable. Impractical. I mean, it's almost impossible to jump from point A to point Z.
Suddenly, I had an idea that came into my mind. A revelation!
I decided that first, I need to make a list of all of my goals. And then slowly, and practically, apply them into my life weekly. You know, "baby-steps."
I'll buy an erasable marker-board and at the beginning of every week, I'll set:
1. Religious goals
2. Educational/school/work goals
3. Exercise/diet goals

and IF I fulfill them all, I get some kind of reward. It can be a CD (yes, I still buy those. Yay for!), a new book, a new pair of shoes, manicure, cool glowy pens, etc.

What's the status on the list, so far?

So far, I've been procastinating and didn't buy the eraser board yet. But the goals, as usual, are stored mentally right now.

I hope that doesn't kill the determination :D


  1. I just found your blog.

    I must be back to visit again.

    Thank you.

  2. Hasya Ya'ara - welcome!
    Please do :)

  3. Maybe the first task on the list should be to buy the board...

  4. Azriel Tzvi - LOL. Good point. The board is just an accessory ;)

  5. NO it's not! It is your first challenge in your fight against procrastination!
    Not that I should be the one talking... At least you came up with the idea to go out and purchase something to help you stop, my laziness won't even let me do that...

  6. Azriel Tzvi - you're right. It should be the first priority. Maybe I'll pay a visit to Bed Bath & Beyond later today. :P

  7. Sefardi Gal, you seem to be so innocent and pure.

  8. Mr. Cohen - lol, thank you. Halevai!
