Goal Planning Monday 8/8


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.

  1. Very nice goals!
    one thing I've learned about goals is they can carry forward to the next list without inducing guilt :)
    Love to you and yours!

  2. I love dates with my kids (one on one). We usually go to a coffee shop, too. I look forward to hearing about your school plans. Thanks so much for signing up.
