A great day to everyone!
I already had some sticky notes around the house with my mid-term goals and after watching the 2 videos mentioned in the previous post, I created another, with my long-term ones and really placed it in my bathroom.
But I was still getting distracted throughout the day.
So ... after a few days I thought ... why not make an app that reminds me?
First I checked my trusty GTD/To Do apps. I could use these, I thought. But my purpose wasn't something that needed to be checked off a list. I didn't want to feel guilty for not ticking a checkbox, nor have to go into an app to "complete" something that doesn't really require completing.
Then I checked some Habit forming apps. But the same arguments applied, more or less. The purpose isn't to form a new habit; it's not something to do.
So I thought I can create something that serves exactly my purpose: to be able to create a "goal", no matter what that is, and be reminded about it at regular intervals; daily, weekly, several times per day, the usual.
Money, fame, knowledge, health, a new profession, it doesn't matter. You choose what you want in life; you decide what's important for you; just don't lose track of it.
Set goals; plan for them; work on them; accomplish your dreams.
This September I had some problems with my knee, basically being trapped at home, mostly in my bed. I was already working from home for quite a while now, so I should have been accustomed. But that wasn't the case, it just went from bad to worse.
Then ... at some point, through all the videos I was watching and books I was reading/looking up to read, I stumbled upon two of Earl Nightingale's videos (and I'll read his book next):
It's not that they changed my life, but ... they did make me think. And I realised that this "rough" period I'm having is just something ephemeral and not even that much of a big deal, especially in the grand scheme of things.
So I got my shit straight, wrote down some goals, changed my attitude and things started falling back into place.
I want to actively work on my life's goals and desires. Life gets in the way many times and I want to be constantly reminded that petty daily annoyances are not worth it; I have better, real things to concern myself abou
