Today I went to a Speak to Me Lunch & Learning event where a business coach talked about the steps we should take to get started on living outside our comfort zones. It was an excellent talk, with excellent points. I know that the "magic" happens in the doing. What I need to figure out now is how the laundry gets done and the dinners get cooked while I'm making the "magic" happen with my blog. I'm always doing, but I'm rarely completing.
The first goal for myself is to set up a schedule where I can start and finish tasks within a specified time. (Laundry washed, folded, and put away in one day; dishes in and out of the dishwasher before lunch; house vacuumed before the kids get home from school; blog updated Monday, Wednesday, and Friday before 2:00pm.) I'll add in yoga on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and look for another class on Friday mornings. And I better not forget my volunteer time with my 4th grade math group on Monday mornings. Oh, Danny Boy. Oh boy, oh boy.
I want to make some money with my endeavors here, so I better work on some goals that get me to that larger goal. I hoped that I would have time to explore those goals today in this post, but my son needs me to take him to the mall to exchange some shoes that are a half size too big. And since I really, really, REALLY want to complete this post today, I'm going to stop here and ask that you help me figure out this get-er-done issue that I have. And by that I mean, How in the hell am I supposed to get this all done??
Oh yeah, my in-laws are coming over for dinner tonight. Thank goodness my husband is a good and willing cook, and I'll put the kids in charge of vacuuming and doing the dishes tonight. I'll be in charge of the wine and witty conversation.
