I got a lot done on the planning workbook. I'm engaging with it a lot. For example, I'd like to take a Tai Chi class in the spring, so off I went to look at the Bloomington community college schedule. In that case, I was dismayed to find that it is only scheduled in January. Can't do it in January due to 1) finances, and 2) weather. So, oh well, I'll check back. (I just wrote myself a note to check back in February.) I also signed up for Dave Ramsey's free budgeting tool to track my expenses. Etc.

I also read about creating a morning routine, and will put it into practice tomorrow. I want to read more, so I'm planning on reading while I drink my morning coffee. I'm also creating a to-do list the night before. (One book said to limit the amount of time deciding what to do.) So we'll see how this goes.

I just need to feed Harlee (which involves petting her and letting her walk on me), meditate, and go to bed.

I've discovered that I don't need to go to a coffeeshop to read. I just need to keep my kitchen table cleaned and make my own coffee. Maybe that's obvious, but that's a revelation to me.

Reading while I drink my coffee in the morning is working well. I'm tracking my new habits on my 2017 calendar--decluttering/cleaning, reading every day, and meditation--so I gave myself a red dot for reading. It's silly, but it is motivating.

The book that I'm reading--Hustle: The Life Changing Effects of Constant Motion by Jesse Warren Tevelow--referenced the Medium Web site. It's a social media and blogging site, but it has some very high-powered people on there. I had planned to blog about my personal development efforts, including book reviews, but now I feel like I need to up my game to match the venue. I'm following 147 people, which means that I'll need to read it like Facebook and set a cutoff for reading. (It's a vast improvement over Facebook though.) I already have thirteen followers; I'm not sure why.

People on Facebook have been commenting about how they have to go to work tomorrow, and I'm gloating that I have another day off. Better not waste it....
