To-Do List #2

To-Do List by Conscious by Chloé

I'm so happy to report that, thanks to my accountability partners you, I've been able to cross all the items of my first online to-do list! I've sold my iPad and used the money to replace it with a Kindle, I've been doing a lot of meal prepping and loved the time saved during the week and FINALLY dealt with some overdue paperwork.

So, if you don't mind, I'm gonna give this to-do list think another try and see where it goes.

I hope it will inspire you to set up goals for your week, don't hesitate to share them with me. Let's support each other, shall we?

1. Organize a garage sale

It's scheduled for this week-end (unless I cancel it, once again). I've put all the stuff I want to sell in the garage, washed & ironed clothes I want to part with, checked that the electricals work, etc. I still need to gather supplies, post signs and... price & tag everything. I'll post the details on Insta for the locals who want to come over.

2. Draw

I've been meaning to make and sell Conscious by Chloé products. I've finally made up my mind, now I need to work on the design and production. So first: design. I've been going on a couple inspiration trips and am starting to have a precise idea of what I want. So now, let's put in on paper!

3. Schedule talks and workshops

I've had a couple people and businesses contact me on the subject. And I'm having so much fun meeting you guys. Keep your eyes peeled for fun times ahead! Oh and if you'd like me to come teach a workshop or give a talk at your office, shoot me an email.

4. Cycle

We did some mountain biking this past summer but I haven't really ridden my bike (its name is Jean-Jean) in the city. Autumn is arriving very quickly and so will the rain, so I want to make sure I clock at least one long bike ride in Portland. There's this shop I've been meaning to check out for a while. Maybe I should decide that I can only go there cycling?!

5. Health Insurance/Accounting

We pay way too much money for our health insurance. A fellow French expat mentioned a solution. We need to take the time to study plans and figure out how to make the switch, so I scheduled an admin meeting with Octave at our neighborhood tavern. This will also be an great occasion to look into our finances since our last talk on the subject was one year ago!

6. Schedule some me-time
I've been asking the Zero Waste PDX community for their recommendations on chemical-free nail salons and spas, so now it's time to try them all!

7. Attend a Toastmaster meet-up
See #3. I've been postponing this for a couple weeks but would really want to improve my public speaking skills.


What about you? What are your goals for this week? Share them with me and let's motivate each other!
