Do you actively set goals for yourself? Write them down and act on them? I have never really been one to set goals for myself and write them down. First off, when I cannot achieve my goal I feel like a failure. God knows I have done nothing but fail at everything I have tried since getting PTSD and I don't need anymore in the failure column. Avoiding making goals is one way to ensure I don't add to my failures. I guess you could call that avoidance?
How do you get organized? I need help getting organized. I hate routine and find it boring and depressing to do the same things over and over again at the same time everyday. I don't have any set days for house cleaning, laundry, etc. When the mood hits I do it or when I am out of clothes. lol. Most days I have a to do list, but it does not mean i do what is on the list that day and when I keep carrying over the same things for a long period of time, I stop using the lists for a while and then a few weeks later start fresh. Again likely avoidance of things I really don't want to do?
The reason I am asking is because both of these things seem to be high on the list of things to do when you are not doing well and to maintain your mental wellness. What do you think? What are your experiences with goal setting and organizing?

As the evening approached, I made the decision to not work anymore for the night and take my full 24 hour day off. I...
