Hopes For A New School Year

One of the best things about starting a new school year is the opportunity for a reset. Whether you are a teacher, a student, or a parent, a new school year allows you an opportunity to set aside old habits and routines that were counterproductive and to begin with a clean slate. These new routines could be school/work related, health related or connected to your personal life.

My new routine involves a new journal to help script things for me and hold myself a bit more accountable to both short and long-term goals.  I am also hoping that the daily journaling will help me gain insight into the habits that lead to more productive days.  One of the things that I like most about the new journal is the hourly time log which needs to be filled in ahead of time. I think that outlining the day ahead will be a deterrent for getting caught off-task and not finishing priority items.  A major obstacle for me in the past has been falling for the misconception that I am good at multitasking.

So my New (school) Year Resolution is to start a task and stay on it until the conclusion and not give in to the temptation to jump to something else that I think will only occupy me momentarily.  The problem for me is that these momentary distractions are seldom brief and many times I do not get back to the original task I was working on.  We’ll see how it goes…
