Plans For The Week (16)

Quote of the day:
If you don't take risks, you'll have a wasted soul. 
-Drew Barrymore

As fast as it appeared, July is silently coming to an end. Did you achieve all your goals? I managed to do most of mine, but not all. Good thing its not over yet as I can catch up with pending tasks. Its another week of plans and so here goes.

1. Read a book.
2. Carry out research work on a project.
3. Go over my long term goals.
4. Take new risks.
5. Go to bed by 11.
6. Be kinder and gentler to myself and others.
7. Smile more, worry less.
8. Keep dreaming big.

Have you made your plans yet? Here's wishing you a memorable week.

Peace & Love always.

  1. I love setting my self goals I can measure where my life is going !

  2. Read a book? Is that actually an aim? It's more of a habit with me. Writing - now that's my aim.

  3. When one month ends and the next one starts, it always carries something of a promise for me, a bit like a mini New Year. I know such calendar dates are man-made and pretty meaningless in the grand scheme of things, but I find comfort in their neatness in a very chaotic world.

    As for your list - No. 5 is something I've not been very good at lately, but have managed a few times during July.

  4. good luck going to bed by 11!

  5. I will always dream big! Nice post.

  6. I've got some terribly stressful things on my plate at the moment, so I should take a couple of your goals to heart!

  7. Sounds like a good plan for the week. : )

  8. I forgot when last time I took a book in my hands. You motivated me! Thank you, Liuba :)

  9. Smile more worry less is a good one

  10. Wishing you a good week and a great August. Hoping for cooler weather and time to read more.

  11. I think the most important thing you said is to be kinder to yourself. Funny how we often treat ourselves the worst when we should be nicer, because when we are good to ourselves we are good to everyone else too.

  12. I could almost just borrow your list and it would work for me. I am an early to bed person, however, so I might change that to meditate each day, not just sporadically. Thank you for sharing your list. I need to be more disciplined about setting goals!

  13. Excellent post!!!!

  14. Good Luck on your weekly goals! I love #'s 6, 7, and 8 :)

    At this moment in time I feel somewhat in limbo...but reading yours gives me hope.

  27. We do what we want when we want to. Not much for setting goals anymore. We're retired so we can so whatever we want. Chores are a given and then it's fun time.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  28. go to bed by 11? I'd never manage to do that. otherwise, yes, July is coming to a cold and rainy end. to August xo

  29. This is some inspiration, thanks for sharing!

  30. Excellent quote! Just what I needed to start off next week :D Its been a crazy couple of hours here.. booking tickets and off for a vacation to my homeland.

    Thanks for stopping by, hope you're enjoying the weekend :D

    Take care :D

  31. This week I need more sleep *covers face

  32. I love the quote! Grow by challenging yourself.

  33. Clever quote. I also need to smile more and worry less :)

  34. Going to bed earlier should be on my list as well.

  35. Getting enough sleep is key. Good luck!

  36. I don't know why I don't set weekly goals... or daily goals. Actually I know why - laziness. I should stop being lazy. I don't even set monthly goals. :(

  37. I have stopped setting goals, because I get disappointed in myself when I end up not fulfilling em. I just do things as I go along. All the best, Sir. :)
    Have a blessed week ahead.

  38. POstagem maravilhosa, tenha uma semana abençoada.

  39. I love your action plan - going to bed on time is very helpful.

    My plan is try not to control everything.
    Gonna try to let loose and relax a bit - about time :)

    Have a Great Week!
    Peace :)

    I've stopped making lists. Life keeps getting in the way.
