I didn’t make as much traction on my goals last week as I’d hoped. But I’m trying to remind myself that I made much more progress by setting the goals and working toward them than I would have made had I not set goals at all.
A mountain isn’t climbed in one fell swoop; it’s an inch-by-inch, foot-by-foot process — and it’s the same with completing goals!
We’re at family camp in Texas this week and one of our big goals for this week is truly to just relax, soak up the sunshine, rest, savor the moments, laugh, and just spend a week away from the usual responsibilities of life so that we can be refreshed and renewed as individuals — and as a family.
Oh, and in addition to lots of relaxing, Jesse and I are also signed up to try the zipline and rock-climbing wall, go on an early morning horseback ride, and go skeet shooting — all things I’ve never done in my life. It might prove to be an interesting week. 😉
At any rate, I’m keep my goals really simple to allow plenty of room for margin and rest.
Last week’s goals:
1. Start reading Wilma Rudolph: Olympic Runner aloud to the children. Read a few chapters of The Missing Video (reading to Kathrynne), and read at least two chapters of Little House in the Big Woods (reading to Kaitlynn).
