6 Goals For This Week

10 Weekly Goals

We’re on early Spring Break/vacation this week and half of next week, so I’m staying somewhat “unplugged” and not tackling many new projects or business projects so that we can have lots of extra time for fun, time with friends, and refreshment. Because of this, I’m only planning six goals for this week.

Marriage/Mothering/Homemaking Goals

1. Read 2 chapters of Missionary Adventures of Bob & Arty aloud to the girls. Read 3 chapters of A Big Year for Lily to Kaitlynn. Read a few picture books with Silas.

2. Write a love note to Jesse.

3. Clean out 2 drawers in our bedroom/bathroom.

Personal Goals

4. Work on memorizing & reviewing Romans 1:1-28.

5. Exercise four times.

6. Read Sarah’s Key, On Every Side, and Restless.

7. Finish embroidery quilt square project.

    I’m just curious how you do the read aloud time with your kids. Do you read a little bit to every child every day, or do you alternate days?

    • I usually try to read a little bit with each child every day and then do some reading altogether. It doesn’t always happen like that every single day, but that’s my goal. 🙂

  • I love that you still set goals on a “week off” – great idea!

  • Michelle says:

    Enjoy your early spring break!

  • I hope you had a relaxing in very fun week off!! 🙂

  • Spring break already? That sounds fun! Are you still doing P90X? I’ve noticed that part of your exercise goal has disappeared.

  • Ginger says:

    I love that Scripture memorization is part of your weekly goals – I just wrote that down earlier today to work on very soon! 🙂 Thank you for being a wonderful friend and inspiration!

  • Ginny says:

    I have been reading your blog for years – and you are one of the bloggers that inspired me to pursue different ways of making money while my husband is in school – so thank you!

    I always have loved your goal posts. I love how intentional you are!

    On my own blog I have started the Intentional Life Project that allows readers to pick their own goals and join a community for accountability. If any of your readers find they want to join, they come sign up here!

    Thanks again for all the inspiration!

    Sticking to goals can be hard. Last week I was all over the map, but this week I’m hoping to fix that.

  • Mona says:

    I saw Sarah’s Key on your reading list and looked it up. It sounded interesting, so I requested it from my library. Wow! Having kids close in age to Sarah & her brother made me really stop and think! I used to think history was boring, but I don’t remember learning much about this part of WWII in school (yes, I know the actual book is fiction 🙂 ). I need to file it away for when my kids are older.

    • Mel says:

      I majored in History in college, with a focus on the social history of WWII, so I thought ‘Sarah’s Key’ would be an easy read for me. Boy, was I wrong! That story stuck with me for days afterward, and even a month later, I still think about it from time to time. It’s a powerful story.

  • Mel says:

    I’m getting back to posting my goals after not doing so for several weeks. I read ‘Say Goodbye to Survival Mode’ earlier this month, and that along with some other readings and some introspection helped convince me that I needed to change the way I was approaching my goals. Now instead of setting a million goals and working on everything at the same time, I’m focusing on getting one or two things done/routines in place, then moving on to the next goal. I also re-established an accountability group with two dear friends who helped me accomplish some big things in the past. So far, progress is being made!

  • Laura says:

    Thank you for always being so honest with your goals. It encourages me to know that people don’t always accomplish their goals-I guess I’m not the only one who can’t do everything!

  • Shelly says:

    This past week I was able to get quite a bit accomplished. I still missed a few goals but had a good week.

    Have a great week off.

  • Lety says:

    How nice that you’ll be getting a break, Crystal! 🙂 Enjoy!

    I had a pretty good week after not accomplishing too much the last couple of weeks. I guess I needed a break 😀 I’m trying to let go of the mentality that everything on my goals and to-do lists must get done. So far, so good 🙂
