10 Goals for This Week

Since we were gone almost all of last week, I didn’t set any goals, other than just focusing on the people in the Dominican Republic. I did get some reading in and a few other projects done on the plane, but that was about it. And that was okay, because there were more important things happening last week than crossing goals off my list!

But this week, it’s back life and goal-setting!

Goals from two weeks ago:

Family/Mothering Goals

1. Finish reading Corrie Ten Boom aloud to the children.

2. Continue our Countdown to Easter study as a family.

3. Write a love note to Jesse.

Personal Goals

4. Finish reading Leadership As An Identity.

5. Complete week 7 of the Couch to 5K program.

6. Listen to at least one more hour of The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers.

7. Write two handwritten notes.

Home Management

8. Clean out and organize our bathroom drawers.

9. Finish Andalutheean Knitted Dishcloth.

Business Goals

10. Outline my talk for the MomLife Bootcamp in March.

This week’s goals:

Family/Mothering Goals

1. Finish reading Nate Saint plus read three chapters of Quest for Truth:Taken aloud to the children.

2. Continue our Countdown to Easter study as a family.

3. Write a love note to Jesse.

Personal Goals

4. Finish reading One of Us Must Be Crazy and I’m Pretty Sure It’s You, Unshaken: Rising From the Ruins of Haiti’s Hotel Montana, and Dawn of a Thousand Nights.

5. Complete week 8 of the Couch to 5K program.

6. Listen to at least one more hour of The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers.

7. Make a plan for Spring Cleaning our house.

Home Management

8. Clean out and organize all our homeschool stuff.

Business Goals

9. Host a reader meet-up in Texas (we still have a few more spots available if you haven’t RSVP’d yet!).

10. Finish my talk & Powerpoint for the MomLife Bootcamp at the end of this week.

    Ah, spring cleaning. :) I recently started the HUGE project of cleaning up the woods around our house after the previous owners…garbage piled high! I think it is going to be a spring, summer, and fall cleaning project!

    You always inspire me to set goals for myself with this series. Sometimes they’re easy things, sometimes they’re things that are just plain impossible to get done in one week, but they always let me know where I stand. This week I feel really confident and comfortable with the goals I’ve set for myself.
    Thanks for always being such an inspiration Crystal!

    This coming week, I’m not setting as many goals and they are a bit lighter, because I’m going on a planning weekend with my husband! I’m really excited to take time to set a plan for our near future (he just graduated and is debating on starting his business or grad school)!!

    I am curious about ways to save money on audio books. I have downloaded some podcasts onto my i-touch and am discovering its a great way to fit a bit of learning into my day, but I also have a list of books I would love to read as tall as my 5 foot 9 inch self. I was thinking downloading a few of them and listening to them during my longer runs would be a great way to shorten the stack, but I don’t have a very big budget for such things. Any ideas?

    Hi, Crystal–
    Thanks for the inspiration to set goals this week! I’ve been sliding on this lately, and it shows. I’m working on being more consistent in this area.

    I was going to check out One of Us Must Be Crazy, but the link goes to the Texas Meet-up page.

    At the beginning of the year I wrote out my goals and have been doing a monthly review of how those goals are coming along. This has helped me stay accountable but I didn’t feel I was making as much progress as I could/should. So I have taken your advise and broke down the goals to smaller bites. It didn’t take very long to do and so I am excited to see the difference that this will make! Wish me luck!

  7. says

    We just finished the Spring Cleaning List last week, but this week seems to already be overwelming with everything going on. I am super excited about the MomsLife Boot Camp this weekend as well as the Reader Meet-up! Look forward to meeting you!

    I don’t have “weekly goals” but I have “spring break goals” for this week and next that I have off of work. I plan to do a lot of spring cleaning around the house, pull the weeds that have taken over in the yard and get to the gym as much as possible!

    I really did not set goals much before I started to blog. I would just write a quick to do list and check them off. But now that I have taken on more to do with blogging I find the goals, even if it is just a few a week help me to keep on track for the whole week. I still make my to do lists everyday for the things that come up that need to be accomplished that day.

  10. says

    You have motivated me to post my goals online and what a motivation that causes. You never know who is reading them and wondering how you are doing. Thanks for the spur to bettering myself!
