I hate setting goals because the fear of failure always lurks. It's easier for me not to have a goal then fail because the feeling of failure, well, stinks! Even thinking about making a list of to-do's overwhelms me, so to put it on paper is an effort in itself. So I've come up with a new strategy, goals, not daily, but weekly. I think this may put things in to a perspective that doesn't overwhelm and seems to be lending more success. So I'm trying it this week and so far, I've checked a few things off.
Here are my weekly goals for the week of January 5, 2014:
1. Read the Storybook Bible to the kids at least 4 nights this week
8. Organize craft closet
So this list might be completely accomplished this week. Even so, I will never be that mom that has it all together, you know the one that remembers teacher snack day and the PTO meeting (yeah, I forgot both this morning). That is not how my brain works, I thrive in organized chaos. But the word I was missing in 2013 was organized. I need to get it back and this is the first step!
How do you keep it all together?
