Project Organization

At the beginning of Feb I mentioned working on my goals and how I use post-its to keep track of progress. I am in need of tweaking them a bit today, if only for myself. So feel free to ignore this post unless you want to see the chaos that is my life for now. I think I need to impose a deadline of August 31st on myself because I will need time to get ready for the retirement ceremony/guests and then moving (during the holidays just to make it interesting!) And let's not forget we have a daughter's wedding in April, a god-daughter's graduation and a friend's retirement in May along with another daughter's graduation in June (which may lead up to a cross country drive to relocate her).

I am curious as to what will truly rise up as important enough for me to deal with and really complete and what will fall to the way side as not worth my time and energy. My question will have to be "Is it worth taking with me unfinished?" Some things the answer is "YES!" And there is a theme as to what those are. Can you see it? Do you have an idea of what will make it and what won't?
