Plans For The Week (19)

Quote of the day:
The world is a looking glass and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. 
-William M. Thackeray

Imagine if we all had an extra hour -making 25 hours a day, how would you spend the extra hour? I'll probably spend mine reading.

We are half way through the month, but it sure doesn't feel that way. I'd rather learn to prioritize things in a better fashion, and to see value in every moment, a far cry from having to limit myself to always thinking "there's not enough time".

A lot of events occurred during the past week, and the most recent news about a missing Indonesia plane carrying 54 passengers and crew over Papua, is indeed sad.

Its the start of a new week, which is no different from the others, so here are some of my plans.

1. Spend 15 minutes on quiet reflection daily.
2. Prioritize things to maximize time.
3. Read at least one book.
4. Re-organize my work area.
5. Make each day a masterpiece.
6. Just be happy and stress free.
7. Work on a side project
8. Dream Big.

There goes some of my plans for the coming week, have a good start to the week and hope you've made your plans too. Be great!

 Peace & Love always*

  1. Happy and stress free is the way to be. Extra hour be nice too

  2. Great quote by Thakeray and great list of plans for the week. I like number 5 best!!

  3. It's always a good idea to prioritize. It's the only way
    I get anything done. When I see a list in front of me
    I do it, mostly because it feel so good when I cross
    it off. LOL

  4. I'm so guilty of feeling there is never enough time, and I'm retired! LOL Your thoughts really speak to me. Prioritization is always my challenge because I can easily get entranced away from that list. Have a great week, Blogoratti!

  5. 8. Dream Big.....
    Yes! I'm going on holiday...... :)

  6. Alas, I would probably use my extra hour unwisely on something like Facebook. *sigh*

    (Sorry if this shows up twice, Chrome had a weird hiccup as I posted.)

  7. Most likely, if I had an extra hour, I would work on a post for my blog....:)
    Have a beautiful Sunday, Mr. Blogoratti.

  8. Your quote today is truly thought-provoking and appreciated! My goodness, so many choices with that FREE hour. Watching television, reading a fave novel, or just pondering life. Hope your week is wonderful! Hugs...Ro

  9. Hello, wonderful quote and plans for your week. There are so many things I could do with an extra hour. Reading is a good idea. Planing on being happy and stress free and dreaming big are all wonderful to me. Have a great new week ahead!

  10. @Pat Hatt: I know right. Well all the best in the new week, cheers!

    @eileeninmd: Yes indeed, have a great week and always nice to have you here, thank you!

  11. Nice quote you have shared here. I have just read a post dedicated to reflection by a fellow blogger! That is quite an unfortunate piece of news u have shared. Yet another flight missing!
    Anyway ummm... I do not know how would I spend that extra hour, depends upon my day to day activity which is not very fixed. Someday I would cook, another read, another on internet or going to places, or may be sleeping... No difference it will make I think!
    Masterpiece thing sounds quite a task! :) Have a great week !!!

  12. I see some of your plans are similar to mine. So lets be on our weekly journey.
    another plane missing--sad indeed.
    An extra hour? Probably reading.

  13. If I had an extra hour a day, I would read and do more blog posts. Maybe even try out periscope or the latest new fangle thing. Cheers and have a great week.

  14. @Shesha Chaturvedi: Yes, sad about the plane. Its kind of you to come around to visit and do stop by any time, thank you!

    @Small City Scenes: Its great to know that, here's to a productive week ahead, many thanks!

    @Kimolisa Mings: Yes to that, a little bit of reading never hurt anyone. Thanks for your visit!

  15. Interesting post. Good planning is very important but the best thing is to stick to the plan ;-)

  16. You know I am quite satisfied with a 24 hour day. A few years ago I worked for a company when on occasions we would spend several days at work for 24 hours at a time, the experience of having done so I retain in my memory. Today if I need more time I sleep for 1 hour less and anyone can do that.

  17. Yeah, I'm going with that, count me in.

  18. fabulous post, so inspiring!! :D nice plans!

  19. I like the reading a book this week. I think I can pull that one off too.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  20. I would join this one extra hour in sleeping I think!
    Happy new week Mr. Blogoratti!
    Good luck with the plans!

  21. I am so going with no 8...Have a Great week ahead!

  22. Sounds like a plan! You and I have shared goals for the week ahead.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

  23. I try so hard on "happy and stress free", but it's the latter part that always trips me up!

    I can certainly manage some of the others, though. :)

  24. I'm totally game for the 5th point. An extra hour? I'd make good use of it effi iently

  25. @So Alice: Sticking to the plan is even more important, you are correct. Greetings to you and thanks a lot for visiting!

    @A Heron's View: I see where you are coming from, a reduction in sleep hours should be sufficient enough. Good thought, thanks for visiting!

    @Christine: That's great, so nice to see you here, thank you!

    @Bob Bushell: Awesome, and high five. Nice of you to stop by, cheers!

    @La Joie de Vivre!: Hello, many thanks for visiting!

    @Sandee: That should be a good thing to pull off indeed, all the best in the new week and thank you!

    @froebelsternchen Susi: That's a good idea Susi, we all need some extra sleep. So great to see you here, thanks a lot!

    @Nma Ojike: Good on you, and many thanks for stopping by!

    @Enigma: We do? Awesome. Its great of you to visit!

    @Kelly: Good for you, its kind of you to visit indeed, thank you!

    @Style For Mankind: Hello and thanks!

  26. @Odeniran Deborah: Hello and many thanks for visiting!

  27. I, too, think "there's a not enough time" .... thanks for the inspiration!

  28. I like that you always set weekly goals.. No doubt you are a very organized person..
    Happy new week to you all....

  29. Great Thackeray quote ;) I like the way you think, it's very positive and inspiring. 15 min of daily quiet reflection sounds like a great idea. Have a good week!

  30. I would read more too, I think. I really like the idea of 15 minutes of meditation. I could use that myself.

  31. Finish the book I've renewed twice. I'm on page 31. :-/

  32. We will try what we can... but we try to avoid ..."thinking" ("meditate"....)
    at least it is cooler inside today than outside , we are thankful for that....may attempt to start of a (non-lethal) craft or piece (to go with my 1/6th scale figures)... something "constructive ( though no money... but have had to resort to glue a toilet tissue (paper-mache) so we are "resourceful" with whatever we have to work with...
    a great day to you..

  33. I totally agree with your week plan and yes it should be applied to every week!!! ;) xo

  34. Sounds like a great week!

  35. Dream big is there any other way to dream?

    Peace & Light

  36. Thank you for sharing your plan for the week!
    I plan to borrow some of your ideas, for they seem meaningful.
    Reducing stress is one of my goals and I am continuing my work on it.
    I have been reading Thich Nhat Hanh's books on Emotions, Fear, Stress, etc. and I find his ideas wonderful and practicable. You may want to check them out too, if you are interested.
    Have a Wonderful Week!
    Peace :)

  37. My only plan: To move through this week joyfully.

  38. Very inspiring post! Thank you!

  39. Your goals are impressive but also realistic. No point in setting goals if they are unattainable. I seem to get more done if I make a list to check off when a task is complete. So my first goal is - make a list!

  40. Have a wonderful week ahead! I hope you achieve all your goals.

  41. I think 15 minutes quiet contemplation every day will help achieve the other goals.

  42. Thanks a lot friend :D I hope that you have a perfect week!

  43. I loooove that song! :)
    I have discovered time will never be enough, so I might as well start accomplishing my goals than moaning over time. You're right. Thanks for this. :)

  44. Awesome goals. I'd like to say I'd spend the extra hour on something else, but the truth is that I have so much to do in a day that I'd just spend the extra time on those things.

  45. There are far too many plane crashes lately... it's scary. If I had an extra hour I would probably copy you and read.

  46. We do so often say ... wish there were more hours in the day ... would time be spent rushing around or taking it slowly? Think I'd opt for a little slow down time.

    All the best Jan

  48. I am trying to find some time each day that I can put aside to relax and be less stressed. I am better at this during different seasons- and on the weekends. Love the reminder here. :)

  49. great plan! lucky you
