Intentions for the Week

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Hello, Monday.

We’re at it again.

This weekend I did quite a few organizing projects. I evaluated my workspace. We went into the city. I bought some plants. We celebrated our 12th anniversary with sushi. Hopefully, we gained some energy for this coming week because it’s going to be a busy one.

I also spent some time looking through old journals and finding little notes I left myself.
Since my Mom died, I haven’t felt like keeping a journal. I’ve fallen off track with bullet journaling. My biggest intention this week is to stay on top of my calendar and lists. Anytime I deviate from this, my life gets messy and I can’t keep up.

I can’t just wing it. I need to engage.

Here’s my spread for the week:

    “My biggest intention this week is to stay on top of my calendar and lists. Anytime I deviate from this, my life gets messy and I can’t keep up.”

    Yep. I completely agree! The effort of keeping up with my calendar and to-do lists is minor compared to the effort of getting back on track when I let that slide. Hope your week is a rewarding one!

    Your list is helping me think more about my own list. Thank you!

    *drink more water–I did pretty well last week
    *practice more tai chi–also did well last week
    *add an extra serving of veggies every day
    *clean art table
    *cast on shawl–I finally got the pattern on paper
    *find the Easter Basket
    *go for a walk–or 2 walks

    Hey hey, another Darlene! I had to comment 🙂 I love that video! You have inspired me to start my own weekly list of intentions. An intention list sounds so much better than just a To-Do list… it feels easier on myself if I miss something.

    Here’s some of my things:
    -sign + finalize taxes (done today!)
    -strip diapers… yes we are cloth diapering (groan)
    -client work (schedules, revisions, meetings)
    -journal (it’s newly on my radar too!)

    Thanks for sharing your intentions and sharing what you’ve accomplished each week, Tracy. It’s inspiring and you are amazing!

    I’m loving the mantra addition – good idea
