Last week I experimented with just a single central goal, rather than a longer list of goals as I'd had in Week One and Week Two.
I liked the format, for two reasons:
First it gave me a clear place to focus during those "between times". There was no decision making. No "what should I do now?" feelings of uneasiness.
(When I was a working gal, hardly ever had any "between times". My meetings were booked back to back. In the rare times I had a gap in my schedule, I was frantically trying to catch up on email or work on an upcoming deliverable.)
In my new life, I don't have nearly as much email, and there's not as much pressure to keep a constant eye on it (love that.) But I do have a deliverable, thanks to my weekly goal format. In this case, "Reclaiming my space, Front Room Edition!"
And so that's what I did. I tackled the Front Room.

I am really liking the sense of order and function.
I like the less cluttered feeling.
I like the sense of space and openness.
The project makes me want to spend more time in that room. And it makes me want to take on another room. I have a feeling "Reclaiming my space" may become a series. (But not quite yet... I have another idea for this week...)
On to Week Four!
