At the beginning of every quarter comes the time of goals and resolutions review. For those who might wonder what’s this is about, I encourage you to read How To Set Nude Year Resolutions That Work and Your nude resolutions, where are you? At the beginning of each year, I set my personal, professional, financial, fitness and nudist resolutions. Those are the five categories I decide to challenge me on every year, to be able to grow in each of those dimensions. For this, year, here were my nude resolutions:
Q1 (Winter): Edit and publish the book Becoming a Nudist
Q2 (Spring): Edit and publish my four French nudist novels
Q3 (Summer): Spend a week in a nudist resort and do 5 day-long nude hikes
Q4 (Autumn): Prep and write a new nudist series, ready for Nanowrimo in November 2022
Spending at least 20 days per quarter entirely nude
Here’s where I am
Q1 (Winter): Edit and publish the book Becoming a Nudist – Done!
Q2 (Spring): Edit and publish my four French nudist novels – Started, but long overdue
Q3 (Summer): Spend a week in a nudist resort and do 5 day-long nude hikes – Did not spend a week in a resort (short on cash), but did spend a week at home and did 5 nude hikes, so considered Done!
Q4 (Autumn): Prep and write a new nudist series, ready for Nanowrimo in November 2022 -> This is the goal for Q4, added to my Q2 one (a little bit extra planning required)
Spending at least 20 days per quarter entirely nude – Did it in Q1 and Q3, but lagged in Q2 and am now 18 days behind, so need to catch up if possible in Q4, with 38 days nude. It started well with a naked Sunday, let’s plan to continue.
I don’t feel great about Q2, where I lost track, due to other priorities on one side and some urgent family challenges that required more attention than planned, and had some effects on Q3 as well. It’s a reminder that life happens and that you cannot always control everything. On the other side, I think I lost the discipline and focus in Q2, and took me all of Q3 to regain them. I’m not going to beat myself up about it, but will see if I can plan better in Q4 so I recoup my shortfalls.
Definitely spending more time naked will be pleasurable, but will require some extra planning to be able to save more time. There are 13 weeks in Q4 and if I want to reach my 38 naked days goal, that’s almost 3 naked days a week. Not impossible, but challenging. The only way to get to it is to plan them early!
As for the books editing and writing, I need to save and plan additional time in my calendar. This means making choices and potentially deprioritizing some activities. However, I’m conscious that with 24 hours a day, I need to keep my calendar balanced, …
