Good Morning! Here is the second part of Chapter 3 of “Say Goodbye to Survival Mode.” And I think I’m all caught up now. I’ve flush out my morning and evening routines like I was needed to. And I got my goals for this year written down! Ben is going to be my accountability partner. I have briefed him on my goals. Now all I have left to do if figure out how I should track them. I think I’m going to stick to paper. I love to sit down with my notebook and a coffee (or beer depending on time of day) and scribble in a book.
I love this notebook I’m using. But, it is getting REALLY jumbled with my personal stuff and my business notes. Ben gave me a really pretty book for our anniversary, so I’ll get that out and use that for my personal stuff.
My process: I reviewed lists from Chapters 1 and 2. And thought about my goals for the year. It was actually really easy. They came fast and naturally – now the execution may be a challenge. But I liked this process – I’m a planner so I think that this all makes sense to me.
There are 2 things that Crystal talks about for goal setting that will probably help me the most. 1. When breaking down you yearly goals, do this by week not by day. I think that goes back to me driving myself bonkers with all my crazy to-do lists. Working on things by week will make it easier for me to give myself some grace. 2. She says to take 1 day off per week. I will REALLY struggle with this! But my hope is that it will give me more QT with the boys – quiet relaxing time with them and playtime and just a chance to completely unwind. Or even give me a chance to do something I miss, like swimming.
