Weekly Goals #19: The Right Process Will Yield the Right Results

The next two weeks will be spent at home (save for an overnight at my parents' house on the weekend). I will need to do some intense preparation for my next trip, but it should be a relatively stable time.

I need to remember to focus on the process inputs, not the results. The results can be used as feedback, but the priority should be on getting the inputs right. I think that's part of where I need improvement.
  1. Same breakfast and lunch every day. Result: Done, except for Friday when I had a work event. 
  2. Walk at least 3 miles a day (easy to track with my new FitBit Flex!). Result: Done except for Friday, when I had to drive to an event after work.
  3. Read Bible verse of the day each day Result: Done 4 out of 7 days. I really need to make this a habit by doing it at the same time each day, such as when I wake up. Otherwise I'm apt to forget.
  4. Listen to Living on the Edge when my commute time allows it. Result: I don't think I listened to any because I have been waking up and going to work early. However, I subbed in another sermon program, which isn't as good but I still benefited from it. A good example how one can still have good results even when the original goal isn't feasible. 
  5. Go to first Bible study. Great opportunity to fellowship. We need to do this. Result: Did not go because the study was cancelled. 
  6. Complete work activities on schedule. Result: Very good. Having a "Top 3" every day really helped to keep me on track. In fact, I got ahead and was able to pull up some activities that were originally scheduled for next week. 
  7. Be aware of opportunities to help others at work, not just get my work done. I can adjust my work to keep up. Result: Good. I made time for a coworker's calls and I was really glad I did. 
  8. Lab work to see why I am so tired all the time. Result: Not done. I thought I lost the lab paperwork so had to cancel the appointment. But I found it, so I will reschedule.
  9. Gemba Academy or other podcasts when exercising or commuting. Result: Listened to probably about 4 Gemba Academy and 7 Toyota Kata episodes. I learned a lot and am really enjoying the enrichment. 
  10. Enjoy a painting class with my Mom and sisters. Result: Done, although I did not enjoy it as much as I had thought. Part of it was heading straight there after Friday's work and spending the night. It was good to see family, though. 
  11. Enjoy a kayak ride with my Dad. Result: Not done, although I had the opportunity. I just wanted to get on the road. I wish that I had made time, though. 
  12. Just look at Edit #3 of my book. Don't have to do anything with it, just open it up and see where I am. Result: Not done...yet. The week isn't over yet, though!
