Sunday was Chinese New Year Superbowl Sunday, and I spent most of it in a kind of sleepy haze. I did manage to squeeze out a few things related to Groundhog Day Resolutions, and looked into some of my local printing services.
New Blank Template
I made a blank DIY template version of the Groundhog Day Resolution Tracker; you can get the download on yesterday’s post. Thanks to the suggestion to make it! I’m calling it the DIY template because the point list I’m using is a methodology perhaps specific to groundhog day resolutions; if I take them out, then are they STILL groundhog day resolutions? I don’t know. I guess we will find out if people post their own lists!
Poster for Contemplation
I made a few poster variations of just the “menu of goals” and “point award list” part of the tracker form, so I would have a reference to put up on a wall somewhere every day. Since my color printer is current busted, I looked into using FedEx Office to print something, but the experience of talking to the person there was underwhelming; I was hoping for a cool high-tech print-on-demand setup, but the center near me is just a pale imitation of a service bureau without the professionalism. So I decided to order a couple of color engineering prints from Staples. While they aren’t guaranteed to look great, I think they’ll be good enough for me to use as a large reference. A 24×36-inch color print is $6, and I can pick it up in about 24 hours. While engineering prints aren’t great color and therefore unsuitable for photographic printing, I don’t need accurate color so this seems like a good deal. I guess we will also find out if that’s the case on Wednesday!
UPDATE: You can now download the 8.5×11 PDF version for your reference as you contemplate putting together your own set of resolutions.
I’m a little tired of making all these forms, so I’m looking forward to getting a fresh start on actually doing my goals! A challenge will be handling the workload this week while maintaining momentum on the goals, but I will once again embrace slowness and uncertainty and take what each day brings with a calm heart! We’ll see what the morning brings. I think I’ll turn in early.

For my 2016 Groundhog Day Resolutions, I'm challenging myself to make something goal-related every day from February 2nd through December 12. All the related posts (and more!) are gathered on the Challenge Page.
