Okay. I admit it. I dropped the ball. I gave up. It was only a momentary crazy time though. And I knew at the beginning it would be temporary. But now that school is over for both Book Girl and Zip Girl, I can breathe again. I can refocus myself on my goals. I can get back to doing things for me, instead of giving 100% of myself to my kids. That’s what today’s post is about. A re-definition of my goals.
I’ve read in more than one motivation book that it is extremely important to write your goals down. And after they are written down, you should figure out the steps it will take to reach those goals. Write them down too. But the most important part? Hang them up in a spot where you will see them every day. Maybe even more than once a day. So that’s what I’m doing today. I’m writing out my goals, and then I’m going to hang them up on my bathroom mirror. I certainly look there enough. And then, when I don’t see it there anymore (because eventually it will become “normal” and I will stop noticing it) I will move it somewhere else.
I’m not doing it just for fitness, either. Every aspect of my life will be picked over today. I’m choosing to live my life very intentionally. I know that the road to success is not a straight line, but I’m going to make it as straight as possible. I’m going to focus on where I want to be, and keep myself focused there.
What are your goals? Do you even know what they are? Can you see them when you close your eyes? Do you know what it will take to get there? The Richest Man Who Ever Lived: King Solomon’s Secrets to Success, Wealth, and Happiness has a great section on setting and meeting goals, it is so easy to apply to every area of your life. Check it out. You will be glad you did. For those put off by its source (Proverbs in the Bible), here is snippet from a reviewer that is very true: ”Although, drawn from the Biblical book of Proverbs it is not a preachy book. Truth is truth, no matter what the source, and you can benefit from this book wheather you are “religious” or not.”
Smile and have a great day!
