Plans For The Week (17)

Quote of the day: 
I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.
-Hermann Hesse

Welcome to the new month of August. July was really splendid -I say this because I accomplished a lot more than I initially set out to. Having said that, now is a good time to set new goals -realistic and achievable goals.
So here are most of my plans for the week.

1. Meditate.
2. Join a charity and voluntary group.
3. Set deadlines for each goal for the month.
4. Read a book during the week.
5. Become a better time manager.
6. Workout twice during the week.
7. Work on a new project.
8. Keep dreaming big.

So all the best with your plans. I am looking forward to a very rewarding month. How about you?
Have a productive week!

  1. For whatever good that comes my way, I learn to be appreciative, grateful and give thanks to my Lord Jesus. And for whatever bad that comes my way, I tried to look at it as something I can learn from it. I may not like or understand why the bad happened but later when I looked back, I know there was valuable lessons to be learned and it also helped to build my inner being. Have a lovely day!

  2. Some of what you have on your list is already integral part of my week and does not need much - if any - planning, such as reading a book or working out, and dreaming... well, can dreaming be planned?
    My week will start with a business photo shoot (we need proper pictures for our corporate website) followed by a sort-of business lunch (all the company - which consists of 3 people, including myself, all of us have been friends for years before we started working together).
    On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, I will be working at a customer's office (project work). Friday, I'll finally go to the hairdresser's and have a pedicure, and work from home in between appointments.
    For the evenings, I want to go running at least once, meet friends for a drink and a chat, take a relaxing walk and... do NOTHING.

    1. PS: Hermann Hesse is something of a local hero here. I went to Librarian School in the town where he lived, and have been to the old monastery where he studied as a boy. He was weird, but I can relate to some of his weirdness rather well.

  3. @Nancy Chan: Very well said. Being grateful on a daily basis and giving thanks is indeed wonderful. I thank you for your visit and comment.

    @Librarian: That's interesting. Dreaming can be planned, but most times it just comes doesn't it? Looks like you have a pretty busy week ahead of you, while also making time to relax which is good. Many thanks for stopping, and nice of you to shed more light on Hesse.
    Best wishes!

  4. Happy New Month and week to you.. No.8 is what I will always do.. cannot stop dreaming hoping that I will achieve my goals
