My LifeFocus System for Year of the Rat

In a few days, it will be the Year of the Rat, and the Chinese New Year will commence. I am now prepared to meet this year with great productivity and the getting of things done. The LifeFocus System will be tested and documented fully this year. I have teamed up with 2 industry experts to dissect this system and bring it to life in different ways, so expect more from the new LFS in 2008. (LFS will be the new fancy acronym for Life Focus System. I have dropped the ‘mundane’ and dropped the ‘card’ as they were too negative and too restrictive respectively.)

Here is a sneak peek at the routines I will master.

The first 3 of my Routinizations are about health. The next 2 life goals. The last 5 are related to the work I want to get done for myself. Some of it is business, some of it is pleasure, some of it is mixed. I will be carrying this list in my wallet every day as a reminder of what is important to me, and charting my progress. The simple act of checking a box can be enough of a catalyst, enough of a commitment, to effectively re-program my daily actions. If I remind myself long enough, and affirm my actions, I should have a positive healthy new routine established for 2008 in about 3 or 4 weeks. As always, I’ll keep you posted.

Happy New Year… Soon

Year of the RatI’m going to cheat this year. That’s not a resolution, that’s a fact. Today is January 1st, 2008, and I usually start my annual attempt at another LifeFocus Card based Routinization cycle. Typically I last until my birthday, which is about 50 days. This year I’m going to aim quite a bit farther and try get enough momentum to last a full trip around the sun.

But not quite yet. I got my computer back on December 31st, 2007. It is now a tabula rasa, which means it will take me a few days to install software, tweak configurations, copy files over, and then update the system. I will also be using some serious back-up software this year!At any rate, this will take some time. So I’m cheating. I’m not going to start my New Year until February 7th: the Chinese New Year. Two-thousand and eight is the Year of the Rat, which is also my birth animal, so it is supposed to be “my year”, or at least have special significance to me.This is my Reboot, my Year of Living Creatively.
