February was a pretty lazy month for me. I never did get around to making any goals for the month or maybe I made some goals and just forgot about them. Either way I didn’t get much done. I did work my 40 hour a week job, although I didn’t work any overtime. My job is not at all physically demanding and not very mentally demanding, but when I’m done with my eight hours I am tired and just want to go home and relax in front of the TV. I’m not sure how other bloggers manage to do so much in addition to working a full time job
In an effort to be a little more productive in March I am setting some goals for this month. My goals are in the areas of writing, exercise, and getting rid of stuff.
My writing goal is to write at least 300 words a day plus write a post for Bank Bonuses. My daily writing won’t necessarily always be Tight Fisted Miser blog posts. I might write some more on my long neglected non-fiction book. I got the idea for the book over three years ago and I have only written a couple pages for it so far. It is way past time to get that book done. I plan to also do some writing for my other neglected blogs and maybe even write a little fiction for fun. I do have a short vacation at the end of the month so some writing will have to be done ahead of time.
My exercise goal is to exercise at least twice a week. That isn’t much of a goal, but it is two times more than I usually exercise now. I will be going hiking next month and it would be good to have at least a little bit of conditioning before I go. My exercise will be hikes when I have time and the weather is decent. Otherwise, my exercise will be walk/runs on the treadmill and maybe a seven minute workout as well.
My final goal is to get rid of stuff. I want to throw away, donate, or sell at least 31 items this month. This will mostly consist of putting my comic books up for sale on Craigslist and/or Ebay. I did put one lot of comics up for sale last month, but didn’t get any buyers. I’m going to put up some more listings this month and hopefully find some buyers. Since we have a big snowstorm coming this weekend I won’t be putting anything on Craigslist until next weekend. I don’t think anyone is going to want to go through the snow to buy comics.
Those are my goals for this month for now. I plan to have at least one update on my progress this month to keep me on track for my goals. These goals are easily attainable so I won’t have a good excuse for not making them.
