Before I set goals for this week, I want to touch base with how I did last week. Here’s my blog post from last week Goal Planning Monday 8/1 Here’s what I did for my last week goals:
Goals 1-4 were Reading Aloud related goals. I posted a Reading Aloud Challenge post for Footprints in the Butter and you can read that here.
Goal # 5. Was to finish writing and schedule to post the two book reviews I started. One review posted. You can read it here.
Goal #6. To spend a minimum of 10 minutes daily working on the mountains of paper clutter. I did fairly well with this. Decluttering not done but I made dent and it made cleaning for dinner guests easier.
7. To get back to reading more books *for me*. I finished a book that I had started on the Nook and I went to the bookmobile and picked up three more books. I’m in a “brain candy easy read” mood so the books I’ve chosen are light and fun rather than deep and intellectual.
I liked setting goals last week so I’m going to set some goals again this week:
Goal #1 Assist Supergirl with writing her birthday thank you’s and encourage TurtleGirl to write hers.
Goal #2 Continue with my Reading Aloud goals
Goal #3 Make time to sit down with BooBear and finalize some plans for some of her electives
Goal#4 Have a mom/daughter date at Starbucks with Turtlegirl
Goal#5 Create a get organized plan and maybe even blog about it
Goal#6 Blog about school plans
I think I should stop there. I could keep making goals and I have lots and lots of things on my to do list but it is unreasonable to expect that I would accomplish all those things in one week. Just thinking about all of them overwhelms me and paralyzes me. Better to focus on a few things and get them done rather than being paralyzed and get NOTHING done.
