May 2018 Progress Report

may 2018

I’m not sure what happened to May 2018 – it’s all a blur. Still tired, and still under investigation so we’ll all have to wait longer to see what’s going on health-wise. Interestingly, my new activity tracker thinks I’m stressed and need to rest more!


I learn and grow every day.

 πŸ™‚πŸ˜Today’s wisdom is not very wise. Tempting as it is to put your head in the sand, it really doesn’t do to let things slip past you.
Energy: Wellness

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

I walk more steps each day.

67.2 kg
67.8 kg
Had an echocardiogram but the results weren’t back for my transplant clinic appointment. And after that, I had to book a biopsy. Looks like there may be a kidney related reason for the fatigue.

I got my second cataract seen to, and it was definitely caused by the immune suppression.

I have lost weight… But not enough to get lighter than April. It’s heartbreaking.

Energy: Presence

Plan a more energetic wardrobe

πŸ™‚πŸ™‚Got grumpy and got a hair tidy up. It’s a little amusing that the current fashion is for straight hair – I remember when they used to curl it.

Still happy with the activity tracker.

Considered a Movie Outfit.

Focus: Business Development

Select and attend conference or course or event

  • writing
  • marketing
  • business
πŸ™πŸ˜I did some legal and marketing research and added another couple of things to my to-do list. It’s never-ending!

I would have “attended” a couple of webinars but 3 am is not my best time and a lot of presenters forget there is a world outside the town they live in.

Also read a general business book that promised on-line access to tools and templates, that weren’t there when I went to look at them. Bit irritating, but after emailing the author it will be interesting to see how long it takes to get access to them.

Toseland suggested trying a reverse Pomodoro Method – instead of setting an alarm for a period of work, setting it for the breaks between the work. It works fairly well for me, as long as I actually set the alarm in the first place!

Focus: Product Development

Stick to the schedule

πŸ™‚πŸ™‚I made some good progress on editing Minimally Viable Housekeeping. Putting it first on the to-do list gets a lot done, but I’m finding that my neck and shoulders get sore and stiff. I’ve bought some ergonomic tools, but haven’t set them up yet…
Focus: Business Income

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

😐😐Sold three books for $19.42 and received royalties of $7.44. Average monthly sales are 4 books for  $21.64, and income $13.25. Argh! Need to learn more about selling!

Thought a little about how to How to Recognise and Take Advantage of Opportunities

Friendship: Friends

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

πŸ™‚πŸ™‚Managed to squeeze in a lunch but was subjected to a couple of cancellations as well.

Thought about a stress free in-laws dinner party.

Friendship: Contribution

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

 πŸ™‚ πŸ˜May 2018 seemed a big month for dying. I urged you to make the best of your short life. And make better purchasing decisions.
Prosperity: Leisure

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

πŸ™‚πŸ™‚My vest is coming along nicely, but there’s still a way to go.

I’m doing a lot of reading too.Doesn’t help much with the waiting.

Prosperity: Household

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

Happy and healthy creatures and find my garden a haven.

πŸ™‚πŸ™‚Just in the nick of time for the cold snap, we had the central heating replaced. I love it when the chill is off the house in the morning.

DiscussedΒ The Happiness of Housekeeping Habits and Routines.

May 2018 was a big month for the dogs with Vet visits for check-ups, blood tests, pills and injections.

My productivity journal for May 2018 is full of stickers, which makes me happy. My magenta ink is not as pretty on the ivory pages as in the bottle so I have gone back to violet. Happily, it is as waterproof so when I spilt my coffee all the precious words were safe.

How was your May 2018?
