Hello! DEH here. Like Daisy, I'm missing this space. Last week, I set up a Goals-for-the-week page in my little Moleskine on Monday . . . and apart from the header, it stayed blank till Friday.
To be fair, the week went to hell in part because of insomnia and the resulting fog + scramble to do the most urgent thing, not just because I hadn't set goals. When I'm in that state, goals just sit there and mock me, anyway: who do I think I am, making plans, when the brain and energy just aren't there? OTOH, I like to keep track of the things I'm not doing, because they're mostly going to have to be done at some point, and I'd rather know about them than get mugged by the forgotten tasks.
So let's pick up again not far from where we left off. We're still a few weeks out from the beginning of 2020's last quarter, but I'm happy to jump the gun a bit (2020, don't let the door hit you on your way out). What can we do, what must we keep track of, for the next 15 or 16 weeks? Let's go until mid-December---that is, have our last check-in around Friday, 17 December 2020, as we wrap up the semester and face the holidays, whatever they may involve this year. How many weeks that is depends on whether you count from the beginning of the week or the end (at least it did for me, but see above about brain fog; maybe I'm still out to lunch).
Start by introducing yourself and your goals if you'd like to join in this session. I'm going to borrow from Daisy's post in May, starting out the summer session:
