10 Goals for the Week

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

Last week I realized that I can only get to my goal of filming, editing, and uploading five videos per week to YouTube if I haven’t committed time to other projects, like learning more about Young Living essential oils and co hosting a class or working on a blog post for a brand.

So the next time I see extra, out-of-the-ordinary projects on my calendar, I’ll adjust my video goals accordingly. :)

Here’s what I accomplished last week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

1. Continue to work on memorizing two verses of scripture as a family

2. Read to my children 5x — I didn’t keep track of how many times we read together, but I think we made it to four times. Going forward, I’m going to do a better job of tracking the number of times we read. 😉

Personal Goals:

3. Do resistance band exercises 4x

4. Walk a total of 100 minutes on the treadmill — I’m cutting this goal way down, because now that the weather is nice, I’m spending a lot more time watching the kids play outside and don’t have as much time to walk on the treadmill.

5. Read 10 pages of The Lord of the Rings (Part One) The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

6. Journal 2x

Home Management Goals:

7. Fill one bag with items to donate

8. Backup my computer and clean up my desktop/delete files, etc…

Business Goals:

9. Shoot, edit, & upload three videos to our family YouTube channel

10. Shoot, edit, & upload two family vlogs — Last week, I spent far more time than I thought I would learning about Young Living essential oils and how to work from home as a Young Living distributor. That took time away from other things like vlogging.

Here are my goals for this week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

1. Continue to work on memorizing two verses of scripture as a family

2. Read to my children 5x

Personal Goals:

3. Do resistance band exercises 4x

4. Walk a total of 130 minutes on the treadmill — I’m increasing this goal, because I’ve already logged 50 minutes this week and know I can do a lot more. Plus, it’s been rainy and the kids are spending more time inside, which means I have more time to hop on the treadmill.

5. Read 10 pages of The Lord of the Rings (Part One) The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

6. Journal 2x

Home Management Goals:

7. Fill one bag with items to donate

8. Deep clean bathrooms

Business Goals:

9. Shoot, edit, & upload three videos to our family YouTube channel

10. Shoot, edit, & upload two family vlogs

What are your goals for this week?

The Latest YouTube Videos on Fun Playtime Reviews

Disney Princess Adventure Stories and More Fun Videos for Kids! #Elsa #Disney

Once again, I’m a little behind in sharing our latest video uploads to Fun Playtime Reviews, so I’m going to get caught up in this post and share our last five videos.

By the way, we’re working on more videos that include fun stories and exciting adventures! :)

Before I get to the videos, here are a few YouTube-related things I’ve observed:

  1. I used to change our YouTube channel trailer on a regular basis. When I stopped switching it out, the video that’s there now became our most popular video and currently has over 4,000 views.
  2. If you consistently create high-quality content but don’t yet have thousands of subscribers, you can still work with brands. We’ll soon be working with a company to review three fantastic products, and one of them is this. (Yes, the kids are excited!)
  3. When it comes to YouTube, you can get burned out easily if you’re not in it for the long haul and don’t truly love what you do. Us? We’re going to keep uploading videos long-term and hope for good results in the future because we enjoy creating videos that bring joy to kids. :)

Here are the latest Fun Playtime Reviews:

Play Doh Sweet Shoppe Cupcake Tower Playset

My Little Pony Princess Celebration Bakery (Mrs. Dazzle Cake & Twirly Treats) PLUS MLP Dessert Party

Disney Princess Adventure Stories: Elsa and Aurora Visit Princess World

Avengers Action Figures – Captain America, Hulk, and Electro PLUS Avengers vs. Electro Fight

Play Doh Sweet Shoppe Ice Cream Sundae Cart

About once a week, here on The Sensible Mom, I write a weekly wrap-up post to share the videos we’ve uploaded since our last update. Please feel free to subscribe to our channel to stay even more up-to-date.
