March 2018March 2018 has been and gone, though I’m not entirely sure where it went. Still very tired and sleeping a lot. Toseland helpfully pointed out that people who are stressed out are usually tired and sleep a lot.

Virtue Feb Mar Notes

I learn and grow every day.

 😐 🙂 It’s interesting how our human tendency is to believe things when we agree with them. I read Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic this month, and it seems that like me and Terry Pratchett, she believes that inspiration sheets through the universe looking for someone to bring it to life.
Energy: Wellness

I enjoy exercising my lean, healthy 59 kg body several times a week.

I walk more steps each day.

68.1 kg
🙂 🙂 🙂
66.8 kg
I’m still tired and finding it hard to get moving, but other than that doing well.The nephrologist said that the transplant is doing very well, and all other things being equal, should last for another forty years. I’m so happy about that, and that my consultation with the dietician is showing results.

My eye has healed well, though I need to be careful of it for another three to six months. It’s exciting to be able to see well in one eye, though it does make the other seem worse. My left cataract is scheduled for removal in late May.

Energy: Presence

Plan a more energetic wardrobe

😐 🙂 I cleaned out my wardrobe, reviewed my summer wardrobe, and planned my winter wardrobe. I’ve even started shopping – it feels good! I also explained my research outfit.
Focus: Business Development

Select and attend conference or course or event

  • writing
  • marketing
  • business
🙂 🙂 A friend of mine in ZenBusiness (formerly known as Fizzle) has been analysing his business. He has identified the product (20%) that brings him the most income (80%) and decided to refocus everything around it for the next twelve months. It’s got me thinking about how I can apply that logic to mine.
Focus: Product Development

Stick to the schedule

🙂 🙂 After reading Dan Pink’s When I’ve thought about how to schedule my days, weeks and months. I’m starting to get a routine laid down, and coming to understand that if I am going to get any books written, I must do them first.Inspired by an overheard argument, I’ve added a new book, Minimally Viable Housekeeping to the production schedule.
Focus: Business Income

I am a prolific writer making at least $1,000 per month.

😐 😐 Sold 4.2 books for $19.33 and received royalties of $27.02. Average monthly sales are now $21.57, and income $14.97.Best get a move on with the production schedule!
Friendship: Friends

I love meeting new people, and as I am friendly and outgoing, I make friends easily.

🙂 😐 Managed to catch up with some people, though March seems to have been the month for cancelled catch ups.Wrote a dinner party for rabbit lovers.
Friendship: Contribution

I share my knowledge, time, and money with those who need it.

 🙂  🙂 Suggested you should focus on what matters, and embrace the characteristics that make you stand out from the crowd.
Prosperity: Leisure

I am brave and adventurous not afraid to try new things.

🙂 🙂 Enjoyed some books, long soaks in the new tub, and glasses of wine on the deck.Suggested a spending plan for quitting smoking.
Prosperity: Household

I live in a beautiful house, with a tranquil garden.

Happy and healthy creatures and find my garden a haven.

🙂 🙂 March has also been the month for our neighbours cutting down trees, and the house is now exposed to full sun most of the day. We’ve lost some plants because I didn’t initially notice and didn’t increase my watering regime.I’ll have to do some intensive planting as Autumn sets in and hopefully, there will be some cover come Summer.

My pretty boy had an enormous skin tag taken off his eye, but was so laid back about it all that he only wore the bucket for a day!

Got on my soapbox about housework.

March 2018 appears to have been mostly wasted time, with tasks postponed again and again. Just going by my handwriting (which improved post cataract surgery before plummeting into even worse illegibility), Toseland could be right about the stress. As well as being ill. Ah well, tomorrow is another day.

How was your March?
