I am trying to get back into my accountability. Where did I lose it? I have no idea. No, I don’t think that my to do list should be done before my homeschool hours with kids….but when does it get done? Lately I have been suffering from lack of time management. Really.
I am not sure in the past week what has happened but nothing productive (except homeschool) has been happening.
The baby has been sick with an ear infection, we have been running every night with baseball, scouts or school events, and time has not been on my side. Laundry piled up, and I went into survival mentality.
Only my necessities was on my list. Now, I am ready to start over and get my goals back on track. It is time to accomplish my task list. How will I do this? First I am going to schedule time in my schedule to work on my list. Not a large amount of time. But if I schedule it in then my goals are more likely to be accomplished.
Summer is the best time for this to start since it is time to create the summer schedule. Another aspect that I am working on is reality. In reality I cannot accomplish fifteen items in a day.
But, I can do 3 or 4. When making my lists, making out goals or schedules realizing that at this season in my life I cannot work for 2 hours straight. Making this adjustment and not having too much on my plate is important. For me and my family we need to have white space. Space where all we do this summer is sit together, swim, play, and make memories.
1. Workout 3x’s a week.
2. Invite a family over for dinner once a month.
3. Play a game or activity with the kids daily.
4. Spend time with each child alone, and build our communication together.
5. Daily Bible time.
6. Memorize 5 verses this summer.
7. Add 10 customers to Avon business. (Prospecting)
8. Blog 3x’s per week.
9. Finish Medical Transcription workbook
10. Set aside time for my husband and I to talk daily.
11. Take a family vacation.
12. Help my teen to complete his eagle scout badge.
13. Pray daily.
14. Share the gospel as much as possible.
15. Volunteer at a food bank.
These are my goals this summer. I intend to sit down with each of my children and ask them for one goal that they would like to complete. I am looking forward to what they have to tell me, and then we will journal it together, at least somewhere it will be written down *wink*
When I am out of this season my journals or post it notes will give me something to remember.
Have you set your summer goals, or do you take the summer off?
