Weekly Goals

So I first read about weekly goals over at Money Saving Mom, and thought I’d give it a try.  After all, I need all the help I can get.  So far, I’m seeing an improvement in what I am getting accomplished.  First of all was the great feeling of actually accomplishing something.  And I did get several things marked off my list.  I also like that this list is flexible.  I have seven days to get it done in and can space things out and around the busy lives we lead.

I have also found out the importance of starting small.  I only try to put one goal per category right now.  Then, as it builds into a habit, I can add more.  Also, I realize it’s not 10 goals exactly, but let’s just say that a goal is to eventually get to having 10 goals a week.  So let’s get started . . .

My goals last week:

Sprirtual

1. Spend time with God first thing every morning.  (OK, so I did pretty good on this last week.  I missed out on Thursday morning because I was running late and overslept, but otherwise it’s definitely helping me. ) 

2. Do next chapter in the Faith Workbook.   (Totally did not get to last week, so I’m moving it to this week’s sheet.)

Marriage

3. Plan a stay-in date night.  (This was awesome as we got a Netflix DVD in and curled up on the couch.)

Writing

4.  Write 500 more words for novel.  (Thanks to Chic-Fil-A for free wi-fi.)

Cleaning

5. Vacuum stairs and basement and sweep upstairs.  (So I got most of this done.  Just didn’t get our bedroom swept.)

Personal

6. Put out candles in the window for Christmas.  (This did not get done as I have to clear a path to the Christmas decorations first.)

Knitting

7.  Work 1 hr on David’s sweater.
8.  Finish fingerless gloves.
