Some goals [Sep. 13th, 2008|10:04 am]
Christopher
I've been slacking off way too much these days. I've been letting some projects get between me and my dissertation, and I want to try to put an end to that.

Basically, I've resolved myself to having the dissertation turned in by October 25th of this year. This gives me 42 days from now (what a good number). I'm currently standing at about 26,807 words and roughly 97 pages (it was more, but I've been slimming it down some).

I am choosing this date for many reasons. First, so that I have to time to schedule a flight and defend. Second, because I still have a little more work on another incomplete I need to polish off. Third, because I really want to do nanowrimo this year (I've been brainstorming a bit, and I want to do some outlining before throwing myself into it).

Next year, I have some lofty goals I am setting for myself, and I won't have time for them if I am still slaving away on this dissertation.

Thursday has class on Saturdays, so maybe I can get some stuff done while she's gone?

If you'd like a tool for setting your goals, you can try this application:

http://www.Gtdagenda.com

You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, schedules and a calendar.
A mobile version and iCal are available too.

Hope you like it.
