I’m setting up yet another challenge for myself this year. I have a super busy year ahead of me, and I have a lot that needs to get done. I also have a lot I just want to get done, so as to not have so much unfinished stuff hanging over my head and to get more organized.
But I’m also a flitter by nature, which is partly why I’m in the mess I’m in (short attention span), and I have to play games with myself to keep on task.
All these challenges are what I need to keep me moving in the right direction. By making them public on my blog, it makes me a bit more accountable than I would be if I kept them to myself, and it gives you all a chance to join in with me if you should want to.
So I’m starting . . .
Here’s how it works . . .
I wrote down the names of 12 projects I’ve been procrastinating on that I would like to move forward with and hopefully finish this year (one for each month):
On the first Monday of each month, I’ll randomly draw a number between 1 and 12, and whatever number that is will be the project I will concentrate on during that month.
I’ll work on that project as much as I can until the first Monday of the next month, at which point, it will either be finished, or at least moved along further towards finished, and I will then draw another number, for another project to work on for the next month. Maybe the momentum will keep me going, and I’ll be able to finish all 12 of the projects this year — time will tell!
So . . . my first number drawn, for January, is: 2.
Number 2 on my list is my Bluework Quilt. All that needs done is to get it quilted. I believe I have a backing already fixed up for it, and I’m pretty sure the binding is around here somewhere, too.
I made this quilt from a pattern in a magazine. I made it so many years ago, I don’t even remember which magazine, or I’d tell you. The magazine’s version was red, and I don’t think I even have the magazine any more.
But my goal now is to get this quilt finished before the first Monday in February, and I’ll have one project I’ve been procrastinating about off my list for good!
What about you?
Do you have 12 projects you’ve been procrastinating on that you’d like to get off your list this year?
Why don’t you pick one and join me in working on it this month?
I’ll be picking my next project on February 2nd, so I’ll let you know how I did with this one, and what my next project will be. If you’d like to join me, leave me a comment and let me know what project you’ll be working on!
