Hello friends.

Here are the results or lack thereof from September 2023.

Wellness / Happiness

Here's a rundown of my home workout space.

Complete at least 720 minutes of exercise or more each month.

  • I logged 1,075 minutes of exercise in September. I completed cross-training sessions, 5 bike rides, 3 walks, 2 strength training sessions.
  • One of the highlights from this last month was completing a 70 mile ride in Door County.

Weigh in under 200 pounds and stay there.

  • I'm maintaining and my routine is improving.

Complete at least 30 journal entries monthly using a paper journal and Day One App.

  • 33 journal entries this month.

Embrace a Mediterranean / Dash Diet.

  • On the right track. I'm working on portion control.

Education / Teaching Career

Read at least two education/teaching books this year and write a book summary blog post on each.

  • I finished the Eduprotocols Field guide. As soon I write the book summary this goal will be accomplished.

Share at least four education resources per month.

Here are the resources I put together last month. I missed my goal by one.

  • Done

Personal Development

Read two personal development books annually and write a book summary blog post on each.

  • I'm still reading The Practice: Shipping Creative Work by Seth Godin.

Complete at least three "thirty-day challenges" in 2023.

  • I finished up my third challenge which was writing in a commonplace notebook for thirty days in a row.

Write in a paper journal at least three days per week.

  • I've retired this goal, but starting a commonplace diary may revive my paper efforts.

Dreams, Retirement, and Money Stuff

Publish at least two newsletters per month.

Create at least two YouTube videos per month - step out of your comfort zone.

  • 8 videos this month - mostly Shorts

Share at least two personal finance resources per month and apply what I learn.

  • This goal has been retired.

Share something useful on Twitter (I'll have to change this to X) at least 25 times per month.

  • Done. I've got a nice routine going. I enjoy looking back at each newsletter and sharing thoughts and excerpts.
