    Default Mini goals and achievements - need motivation

    I feel like I am in a bit of a rut these days. Things at work and home are getting me down. Nothing specific, no major events just a general feeling and the usual vicious cycle.
    Anyway I thought it would be helpful for myself and hopefully others if we could share some small goals and achievements.

    I will start with a few goals for the week:
    - decluttering sewing room
    - sew pants (bought fabric 2 months ago !)
    - no more buying coffee this week at work

    Feel free to share your mini goals and achievements

    I am up to date with my laundry, that can be a rare achievement.
    I have menus planned for the next couple of nights.
    I need to make a couple of appointments, one with my gp, and one with my hairdresser. marie.

    Thank you

    A lathe i can make bowls, candle stick holders, chair legs and some other fancy stuff.

    The one above is a multi tool (ShopSmith) made bak in the 50ies i think. It can be used as a table saw and numerous other applications. In the bak ground is a newer dedicated lathe. Its black with shiny metal sections

    Sounds like a handy tool to have.
    I have seen pics of some things you have made in other threads and they look really good!
    Do you do this as a hobby or part of your occupation?

    Sadly I haven't started on any of those goals.
    But the week isn't quite over yet so I hope to at least declutter the sewing room.

    Life can become quiet hectic..... Things were getting on top here, so on Thursday I made a list for myself to do on Friday....

    I made that list and crossed off each one as I did it, felt good.

    Maybe do a list that you can follow in the week....

    Don't put pressure on yourself or you won't do it with pleasure it will feel like a "job" make I exciting.

    Yesterday's goals for me was....
    Wipe down the walls
    Wipe down the doors
    Clean skirting boards
    Tidy all rooms
    And clothes washing
    Cook

    Today.....
    Clean all linen and change bedding
    Cook
    Tidy up
