This is going to be one of those word-vomit posts. You know the ones. Sometimes it’s good to just let yourself spill your thoughts completely uncategorized, unfiltered. This Christmas season came fast and I know that it is part of why I feel like there has been no time to think about or do anything. We have been constantly on the go and the days that have been spent at home were spent feeling under the weather. I am mostly blaming the busy time of year for the lack of time I’ve had to spend on anything – but if I’m being honest with myself – this is something I struggle with year round. I have a lot of things on my to-do list but I rarely tick them off because I’m constantly just trying to get through each day. The scary part is that I keep thinking I’m going to be better in 2015 – I’m going to be prepared for this baby, I’m going to meal plan, we’re going to be crazy awesome with our finances, we’re going to get all of our house projects done, I’m going to WORK HARD on my Pure Romance business, etc. But if I haven’t been doing these things over the past few months or the past year – what am I going to change in order to make them happen with a new baby? I know I have a few months to work this out and get myself on track but I know that I have to start now. And I know that I can’t keep doing what I’m doing if I expect things to change. Because what is the definition of insanity? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Clearly, I have been living an insane lifestyle.
It’s time to set goals and to meet them.
Goals for January 2015:
♥ Make a complete list of what Nate and I plan to buy for baby boy and what we plan to register for.
♥ Make a list of every detail for the nursery and complete one task every weekend.
♥ Have 5 Pure Romance parties in January – call potential hostesses daily, give out samples/business cards, and be generally excited about my business! Because I AM!!
♥ Pay my car payment with Pure Romance earnings.
♥ Keep a detailed planner for bills and all important dates.
♥ Make a list every evening of what absolutely needs to be done the next day allotted hour by hour.
♥ Meal plan and only eat out ONCE for the entire month. (this one freaks me out.. but we can do it!)
I’m keeping it simple for now as to not add too much to my plate, but these are the things I want to accomplish in January no matter what! These are completely obtainable and I will keep myself accountable by posting them here.
Do you do anything special regarding time management and achieving your goals? I would love to hear you tips!!
