Motivation Monday - Goals for September 2013

My goals for August 2013 were:
  1. Continue with sorting and scanning. (Goals for 2013 Organisation Goal). Achieved. Once again, I didn't make a quantitative goal for the amount of scanning and sorting I was going to do during August, but I was happy with the amount I was able to scan. I will continue this goal in September.
  2. Sort through the contents of my 'Dunne' folder within my 'Genealogy' Folder on my hard drive. (Goals for 2013 Organisation Goal). Partially achieved. I started sorting my Dunne folder but I have more to sort. I will continue with this goal in September.
  3. Continue extracting data from at least another 20 source documents during August for my Fullerton family history writing project (a continuation of February's Family History Writing Challenge) (Goals for 2013 Writing Goal). Not achieved. Unfortunately I wasn't able to achieve this goal during August. 
  4. Tag my photographs for at least one year (1992) with keywords for names, locations, events etc. Delete any duplicate photographs. (Goals for 2013 Organisation Goal). Achieved. Photographs tagged for 1992 and I started tagging photographs from 1993.
My goals for September 2013 are virtually the same, just a few little differences:
  1. Continue sorting and scanning. I still have some genealogy magazines to work through, as well as some papers from my school years. I will then start scanning various family history notes I have only in hard copy. (Goals for 2013 Organisation Goal).
  2. Tag my photographs for at least one year (1993) with keywords for names, locations, events etc. Delete any duplicate photographs. (Goals for 2013 Organisation Goal).
  3. Sort through the contents of my 'Dunne' folder within my 'Genealogy' Folder on my hard drive. (Goals for 2013 Organisation Goal). 
  4. Continue extracting data from at least another 10 source documents during August for my Fullerton family history writing project (a continuation of February's Family History Writing Challenge) (Goals for 2013 Writing Goal).

  2. Your commitment, and getting things done are inspiring. If I had a list like that, and I managed to one thing done in a month, I'd be chuffed. So you should be very proud of your efforts.

  3. Thanks Michelle and Alona. I'm already feeling a weight off my shoulders having made the progress I have made with these goals, and really appreciating the 'deal with at little bit at a time' approach.
