I had been looking good for an affordable standing desk when my creative spirit received a visit from Lady Necessity, the Mother of Invention.
The solution was as simple as placing a pretty end table on my desk and glueing together 2 empty wine cases. Presto!Change-o! ! I couldn’t be happier with the results. No more joint pain from sitting and no budget sabotaged by the purchase of a non-descipt model from an online boutique. Even my cat approves!
Hats off, WordPress! Today, I discovered the Annual Report relating to my WordPress blog during 2015. Just for me. The graphics are beautifully shiny. I seem to have not noticed it last year. Be that as it may. I am glad to have it. It made my day brighter. Since I am a born sucker for bells and whistles the WP firework rosette elicited a smile from me. I live for surprises of this nature.
It might seem strange, but I am already dreaming about my annual report for 2016. Silly, since it is only the third day of January.
Nevertheless, a minor detail will not rear itself into a stumbling block between my brain and my keyboard. It will not! The resolution revolution fomenting within the bastions of my less than iron will has taken command. I hope to rehabilitate my posting fidelity. After all, my distinguished name is connected to this blog. Don’t laugh, esteemed reader. My heart is in the right place, and 2016 will be the year in which I conquer my innate laziness and my tendency to procrastinate. But most importantly, the days of my weaker self, my inner “Schweinehund”, as the Germans say, are numbered.
This morning I read an article on the Grammarly Blog (see link below) which has motivated me into swift action. It is all about “Why You Should Put Your Resolutions in Writing”. The author tells us of the good intentions supporting every resolution made during the first month of each new year. Apparently only 46 percent of us will stick to our plan six months down the road. However, if we commit our resolutions to paper, we then become accountable to ourselves. The supporting research shows that by writing down our goals, we are 42 percent more likely to cross the goal finish line. This is good news. So, reflect upon what you would like to change or achieve during this new year, write it down, print out a copy of your resolution (s) and tack it up near your workstation. Awaken your feelings of true accountability!
I would be nice if you would participate in my Resolution poll. Thank you.
