Week 6 – DMP Struggle
So it is week 6 and I am still rewriting my DMP. I can see why this is so. Its not specific enough with measurable dates and numbers. This weeks post is gonna help me organize my thoughts so I can make my DMP clearer and specific. I have been staring at my DMP with frustration, getting side tracked in the Alliances and reading others blogs looking for an answer from “without”. Well no one can write my DMP except that what is “within” me.
My PPNs are True Health and Spiritual Growth and its not something that I at the moment I can put a number on. My PPN for true health is not losing weight although getting rid of 10-15 pounds would be awesome. Convenience and fast foods are not what we eat and my personality tends to lean on the “food police” side which my kids will be grateful for in their adult years (certainly not now – lol). True Health for me is sleeping a full 8 hours and feeling more energetic then I ever have. This is not strong enough for my PPN and it has not stuck yet. I feel that this is a true PPN. I am a health nut! I can get excited about health very easily, but I just don’t know how to write it out and be specific.
One of the things that Mark had mentioned in this weeks webinar is rewarding yourself for doing work. I think this may be what I need to do to get specific with my SMART goals.
When one battles with insomnia, brain and cognitive function decreases. Big time…. and a lot of the time my brain feels like scrambled eggs. So years ago I bought a course that helped improve memory. I got through the first few lessons and quit because this memory course made my brain work way into the night and gave me even greater insomnia. This could be my reward! “When I get 7 plus hrs a night of sleep on a nightly basis, get my circadian rythm on a routine, I can restart memory course” and I can attach a SMART goal to this and it can be measurable!
Spiritual Growth is also a true PPN for me. I can’t seem to get specific SMART goals on that either. Other than being specific about Scripture Study.
Is this DMP for me or is it for my family? A Costa Rica Vacation is currently in there. It would be awesome to see my family on a trip to Costa Rica but would it not be more intellectually stimulating to go to Jerusalem and visit all incredible Biblical destinations such as the Temple Mount and the Western Wall. Since I am already feeling more exited and energetic looking at google images of the Holy Land I think I am on the right path of self discovery! How amazing does that feel! My kids would probably enjoy Jerusalem just as much as Costa Rica! And there is the Dead and Mediterranean Sea for them to get their “Beach Vacation”. I am feeling better about this already!
To your BLISS ~ Catherine
