10 Goals for the Week

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

Once again, I met most of the goals I had set last week, but I didn’t meet my goal of writing at least three blog posts.

After thinking about it, the thought crossed my mind to actually put together a plan for how I can make this goal a reality each week. So this week, instead of simply setting a goal to write a certain number of posts, I’ve decided to create a goal to write for 15 minutes each day.

More specifically, my goal will be to write blog posts for 15 minutes a day.

Next Monday, I’ll report back with how things went. :)

Here’s what I accomplished last week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

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

2. Plan a fun Family Day at home

Personal Goals:

3. Read 20 pages of Virtual Freedom (affiliate link) by Chris Ducker

4. Walk a total of 90 minutes on the treadmill

5. Juice 1x

6. Finish reading the last few pages of Tasty Food Photography and watch videos from the book

Home Management Goals:

7. Vacuum upstairs

8. Move photos and videos from my computer to an external hard drive

Business Goals:

9. Purchase black foam board or simply something else that I feel I can use as a background for food photography

10. Write 3 blog posts — Once again, I didn’t meet this goal, but I have a plan to make it happen this week. ;)

Here are my goals for this week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

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

2. Make zucchini bread

Personal Goals:

3. Read 20 pages of Virtual Freedom (affiliate link) by Chris Ducker

4. Walk a total of 85 minutes on the treadmill

5. Read 20 pages of The Hobbit (affiliate link) by J.R.R. Tolkein — By the way, the new Hobbit teaser trailer came out today for the final movie. Not that I was waiting for it or anything…

6. Read 10 pages of The Early to Rise Experience for Moms (affiliate link) by Andy Traub — This year, reading short ebooks on areas in life and work where I need improvement has been such a blessing! The last book that I finished is helping me to improve my food photography in ways I hadn’t even though of, and this next book should help me to FINALLY be able to get into the habit of waking up before my children.

Home Management Goals:

7. Clean bathrooms — It’s amazing how bathrooms can get so icky so quickly. I do basic daily maintenance of our bathrooms, but they need more serious cleaning on a regular basis!

8. Start home school planning

Business Goals:

9. Make and photograph a recipe to include in an upcoming post

10. Spend 15 minutes per day writing blog posts

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

Similar to last week, the next seven days should be pretty laid-back.

So, I’m going to try to break out the juicer at least once, and I’m planning on working hard to actually write three posts this week! I feel like I just need to get into a rhythm with my writing, and then it’ll become a habit.

Or not.

Because I do have five beautiful children that tend to keep life sort of unpredictable. ;)

Anyway, here’s what I accomplished last week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

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

2. Plan a fun Family Day at home — We watched The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (again! :) ) and ate hobbit/dwarf-themed food.

Personal Goals:

3. Read 20 pages of Virtual Freedom (affiliate link) by Chris Ducker

4. Walk a total of 100 minutes on the treadmill

5. Drink water with lemon (or lime) and cayenne pepper 4x — We ran out of lemons…

6. Read 20 pages of Tasty Food Photography by Pinch of Yum

Home Management Goals:

7. Mop the floors

8. Fill a bag with items to donate

Business Goals:

9. Bring in a piece of furniture from the garage to use for food photography

10. Write 3 blog posts — I wrote two posts.

10 Goals for the Week

I was able to cross almost everything off my list from last week. In case you ever wonder how I stay mostly on top of my goals after I set them, my not-so-secret tool is Google Calendar. I use it so often and it’s become such a helpful tool that I finally stopped using any […] Read more »

10 Goals for the Week

I was able to cross almost everything off my list for last week. I completely missed drinking a single one of my lemon (or lime) water concoctions. And I only wrote one blog post last week, but this week should be different. Now that the July 4th holiday has passed, and my neighbors are no […] Read more »

I did pretty well knocking out nearly all of the goals I set for last week. But after thinking about the area I struggle with most – my business goals – I’m going to make a little change moving forward. I realize that week after week I keep biting off more than I can handle […] Read more »

I know that it’s almost Thursday. But that’s okay, because it’s never too late to set goals, right? I may have had this post published earlier, but I was a bit thrown off when I woke up this morning and went to change Elisabeth only to find that there wasn’t a diaper or Pull-Up in […] Read more »
