a small goal achieved

When you set a goal for yourself, make sure it’s small enough to meet the very first step . . . the satisfaction is immense!

My goal was to make two more kete/baskets and harvest enough harakeke/flax for 3 more.  Done!

The first step of the plan didn’t go so well with computer-time rationing went out the window, however it wasn’t necessary to achieve the goal and weed the garden, wash the year’s supply of salt from my windows (a small price to pay for living at the beach) as well as catch up with friends.

And now?  I’m off to help some friend to pluck some roosters and maybe a pūkeko . . . the feathers will turn up in our work so watch this space!

Pūkeko or swamp hen.

  1. Oh thou lady of leisure your work inspires me as I sit on my laptop considering what it is I could be achieving if I were not sitting down with my laptop!? But my goal of returning to the gym has been achieved! Less time on technology my next goal…! Love the products you are reaping as a result of the goals you are sowing, pretty impressive
