I’ve read a great many stories here and in other venues about planting gardens, reconnecting with family, playing board games, and all the rest. It’s interesting how a little isolation can help us focus on what’s really important. That being said, what important things are you going to be doing this week? Are they contributing toward your goals? Are you tackling some projects that you’ve been putting off? How about those books you want to read or a movie or series you always wanted to get caught up with, but never had the time?

There are two ways to look at our circumstances. One way is to think about how much this sucks. The other way (one I prefer) is to look at our circumstances as a way to pursue some things I wouldn’t normally do. I realize most of you are working remotely, but if you’re retired like me, or recently laid off and have a lot of time on your hands, why not take some online courses, pick up that instrument gathering dust, or break out a cookbook you haven’t opened. There are all kinds of things to do if you get a little creative. We are all locked down. Might as well make the best of it, right?

Here’s my week, folks:

Physical – Exercise Monday – Saturday, drink water, take vitamins, and get plenty of rest (daily)

Mental – Continue courses on NLP, Algebra, Spanish, Python programming, and writing. Continue to work on my fiction book and this blog and read 1 chapter each day (daily)

Spiritual – Read my Bible daily, do my spiritual exercises (an advanced form of meditation), Dream Journal, Spiritual Journal, and Journal (daily)

Social – Post good quotes, poetry, and helpful or informative articles. Text, call, and/or Skype/Zoom with family members outside of Michigan, and interact on WordPress and Facebook (daily)

I like following a rigorous schedule like this because I am so apt to get bored. I do it to stay busy and continue to chip away at my yearly goals. If any of you needs help with doing something like I do, feel free to reach out. Leave me a note in the comments and I’ll answer any questions you have.

Well, that’s it, folks! Have a great week!

Until next time…
