September-December: Week 14

In this session, this is the last week for which we’ll set goals. In week 15, next week, we’ll report on session progress. Three months and a bit have gone by while we have cultivated our gardens! Here's a link to the post in which we posted session goals: http://topleftquad.blogspot.com/2018/09/september-december-week-one.html Judging by the small number of comments on the last post, this past week was one in which many people were Overcome By Events. These things happen! I hope you were getting things done and just not finding time to check in.

For discussion this week: favorite tips for time management or Getting Things Done? Or, from the other side, common advice that just doesn’t work for you?

About our next session: Humming42 has kindly offered to host. H42, are you up for doing that on your own, or would you like to share the job with someone else? IOW, there’s room for another organizer if we stick to the two-host format we’ve used for awhile now. Any takers?

September-December: Week 13

I want to begin by offering condolences to oceangirl101. Quite a few members of this group have ailing parents or have lost parents, and we are so sorry about your mother. We are thinking of you and glad you are part of this group.

<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3


This week's topic:

A week or so ago, I came across this tweet:


Apparently, Amanda Brooke wraps up gifts to herself that she can open every time she gets 10,000 more words done on her book project. This seems kind of brilliant. In general, for many people, December is a time of gift giving, and often when I'm out shopping for others, I find a few things that I would like for myself. Normally, I'm not much of a shopper (except for books), but this time of year, I can be seduced by little fun things (like a necklace I found last weekend that has a pendant made from a piece cut out of an old library card). See these things I want also makes me think about rewards.

Do you plan to reward yourself for any of the things you've accomplished this session? Do you have reward strategies in place when you work? I'm wondering if for our next session, I should use Amanda Brooke's strategy and purchase and wrap my rewards ahead of time, labeling each of them with one of my session goals. That might get me going! How do you reward yourself, and do you need any new strategies?

December can be a difficult month, so I hope you're all able to find some shiny bits to keep you going this week!

P.S. Speaking of keeping us going, do we have one or two people who might be willing to host TLQ next session?

September-December: Week 12

It's difficult to believe we're nearing the end of November, and I don't know about all of you, but once December hits, two things happen: first, I feel an urgency to get a lot of TLQ finished before the end of the year, and, second, all kinds of bugges and invasive mint appear to eat up or crowd my TLQ sprouts and stems, such as they are. These two occurrences work together to make me feel both insanely busy and completely unproductive. In fact, the middle of December is typically my most stressful time of year.

This leads me back to a topic from week four: fencing, bugge spray, etc. As we head into the final stretch of this session, what kinds of December pests or threats to your TLQ plots do you expect to arrive, and what kind of bugge spray or fencing might work best to save, preserve, and increase your final harvests of the year? Or perhaps there something you plan just to abandon to the weeds and wild beasties?

I hope everyone has a great week!

September-December Week 11

When I work in the front garden, sometimes passers-by compliment me on it. This is gratifying but feels weird, since I didn't plan or plant the garden, just try to maintain what was done by the previous owners. But it is nice to know that it gives other people pleasure, even though I am very conscious of the problems: this thing needs pruned, those bulbs got eaten by squirrels, and the Battle of the Bellflower is not something I can forget. It takes someone else's response to make me notice the garden's attractions.

So: step back and consider your garden, literal or metaphorical, as a stranger might. What would someone else compliment you on? What habits are flourishing? What has bloomed lushly this year?

(GEW, I hope I'm not stepping on your toes, but when I saw that you were chaperoning a drama field trip, I thought you could use a break.)

Roll call:

1. Work on the paper. Write two pages (what's left of the week is short)

4. Life Stuff: make deposit. Plan another trip to see my dad. Plan trip with Sir John in January. Unpack boxes.               
5. Work admin: spring book orders.

EAM
Spend two hours on administrative details.
Revise the outline and schedule for the dissertation.

GEW

5. Grade a batch of papers before Thanksgiving departure (next Tuesday).

September-December: Week 10

We had snow this week. It didn't stick around, but nighttime sub-freezing temps have. I never got around to putting the garden to bed (cutting back, mulching, all that). If we get a warmish day, I may finally do that work. Or I may just let it go. The first year we were in this house, we moved in November, after a couple of months of owning two houses while work was done on this one, and I'm not sure I did any garden work in either place, because Houses and Cats (not to mention Job). The winter was legendarily terrible, and yet the roses and most of the other plants came back just fine, as they were well-established and adapted to this climate zone.

Lists can be a good way to keep things in mind, as in, "I'll need to do that eventually and I don't want to forget." I think some productivity/planning people would say to schedule that "eventually" and then forget about the item till its time comes, but I see the value in keeping a list item around. Maybe it's a thing you can tuck into some bit of lost or found time, as when someone is late to a meeting or a committee doesn't meet this week. Maybe you're a person who doesn't deal well with scheduling but likes to look at a list and pick the thing that seems most possible/least unappealing.

When items keep coming back week after week, though, it's worth checking on priorities. Is this item something you'll get to before a deadline, or is it something that you really just want to let go? Would it be better to bite the bullet and Do The Thing? Or does it recur because it's a repeating task, like grading, so however many times you do it, it never Stays Done?

As so often, it's my own behavior around this issue that I'm really questioning. Constant attention to posture is making some difference to my sore neck. Am I going to call my doctor's office for an appointment, or am I going to continue to try to deal with it on my own? Also, I keep anonymizing assignments that I need to make up or grade, and then I lose track: did I do that one and am on to another, or is the old one still with me? I should give them pseudonyms, and make myself a key in my paper notebook; then it would be clearer when I have actually done something.

If you feel like talking about your repeating items, or about preparing for November/December weather, feel free. Here's the list of everyone's goals from last week, or in some cases, before: how did you do?

Bardiac (held over)
1. Work on paper.
2. Get garden prepped for winter.
3. Keep practicing violin.
4. Get regular exercise.

DEH
1. Health: eat safely, sleep 8 hours, stretch, cardio/walk, fun thing daily; weights 3x. Make appt with doc and request referral to physical therapy for neck.
2. Research: put in 4 hours and/or write 2000 words; keep up with languages.
3. Teaching: grade the next iterations of undergrad short paper, grad proposals. Design and post at least one new assignment for undergrads.

Straighten and organize on days I can't write.
                                   
GEW:
1) Do all the grading and prep and service I can do so that I can do as few of those things as possible this coming Friday-Monday. Monday-Thursday will be painful and intense but worth it, I think.
2) Test the NaNo waters (i.e., see if I can write 1667 words today and tomorrow, and, either way, try to write 5,000 words of fiction this week).
3) Seven-minute workout 3x, 20-minute yoga 2x, daily beach walking next Friday-Sunday.
4) Take son on a nice outing (cheating because I already did this today).
5) Spend Friday-Sunday (and some of Monday) relaxing at the beach house.

heu mihi
1. Write x5, sit x5, language x5. Exercise x2.

4. Read essay for writing group.

Humming42
1 Submit current book review
2 Four hours on Tiny Project, including Actually Writing (session goal of 2500 new words)

2) do an hour on straightforward research thing for FocusedWoman.
3) do half an hour on knitting project.
4) eat limited refined sugar, make sure I drink enough fluids, and take a minute's standing/moving break every 45-60 minutes of desk time (aim to work through my six minutes of basic stretches list over the course of the day). If I have good days, do a five minute cardio work-out thing as soon as I get in the door after work, Fluffball's tea-needs allowing.

oceangirl101

4. Read something for fun!
5. Plan next weekend's trip

Waffles
1. Dyad and election portion of manuscript.
2. Intersectionality paper: flesh out discussion and send to co-authors
3. Asthma paper: If get feedback on results from co-author, revise and then create plan for completion of paper (am trying to get the senior authors to actually write parts of the paper)
4. Diss manuscript: This really needs to be under review soon - big tasks are to reduce word count by 1000 words and email co-authors to get them to review it quickly or be removed from the paper.

September-December: Week 9

I hope this past week involved some careful tending, transplanting, or bringing things indoors to get ready for changing times and seasons--whatever those changes might be. Or, I hope, the week presented a good chance to take stock, at least, of which of those things might need to be done.

I thought this week we might revisit a topic from the past while doing so within the penumbra of our current gardening metaphor: Tools and materials. What tools and materials are keeping your garden (and its gardener) happy right now? However, instead of spades and watering cans, we can think about pens, notebooks, computers, desks, yarn, food, pillows, and more.

What tools and materials are you really loving right now? What things are really making your TLQ crops grow?

I hope those of you with illness begin to recover your health, I hope those who need sleep get some rest, and I hope NaNoers (and the rest of us) enjoying "making marks on paper," as JaneB phrased it last week.

Happy November, everyone.

September-December: week 8

Good Enough Woman reminds me that we haven't done the traditional halfway-through revisiting of session goals, in case people need to revise the goals set at the beginning. So if you have realized that you need to jettison (uproot?) some goals, or revise (transplant?) others, there's no time like the present. (It's not going to get any earlier.)

We might think about the goal-revision as setting up the indoor garden, as in this post, which at first I thought was going to make me grumble about hardiness zones and people who can have artistic winter gardens, but in fact is about bringing plants inside: http://maryannemohanraj.com/2018/10/17/winter-garden-2/

What are you bringing inside and finding a sunny window for?
