A change of approach (Roles and Goals)

OK - if last week was the week for my massive pity party - this week will definitely be different. I am going to drive myself to greatness through the use of lists and goals and - to make sure I stay on track - I get to post them publicly and either do them or suffer the shame of having to admit that I fell short. Going back to my Franklin Planner days I've split them up into main categories of life so I have a track to run on no matter where I am or what role I'm performing. I built each of these things into my actual schedule so I have a course of action each day!

- Spend at least one hour of electronic free time with Jackson outdoors each day
- Eat dinner at the table with the family without reading or being distracted.

- Begin a chore chart/commissions for Jackson to help him learn responsibility in the household.
- Control "over emotion" by being clear in communicating with Chad.
- Keep on top of the budget and inflow - outgo issues.
- Make a nice dinner at home at least twice a week (and no frozen pizza doesn't count)
- Store away winter jackets in front closet and organize shoes in the kitchen (rearrange???)
Daughter/Family Member
- hook up Beta/VHS players and begin the process of transferring the last of the old home movies.
- get scanner hooked up to downstairs computer
- be more grateful for the blessing that is having family close and show that more fully
Financial Advisor
- FOCUS when at work on the tasks at hand (yes - I realize the oxymoron of blogging at work but I do get a lunch break...)
- Reach out to current clients and natural market for referrals to help grow my business.
- Utilize my calendar better to maximize my time for prospecting/case development and follow up appointments. (See more people - make more contacts - build more relationships)
- FEAST Friday night - restore relationships with CJ and Dawn.
- Send some mail to my friends. They deserve it.
- Have a lunch with someone I haven't seen face to face in awhile.
I know this shouldn't be the last on my list - and its not in real life but it seems better that way (besides this is the hard part and maybe you won't make it this far).
- Set aside time for myself once a day (lunch breaks?) to do discipleship homework, meditate and pray.
- Get back on a workout schedule of 2x/week "The Firm" tapes and walking outdoors with Jackson.
- Spend a few hours on Sunday organizing the scrap area and sitting down at my table - letting my creativity flow for awhile.
- Make sure I am getting enough rest for me and the baby. Don't stay up just because I feel like I "should".

Just remember: If God brought me to it - God will bring me through it.
Whew - better get to work!!!
