Bonnie at House of Grace had a post about a book called, “Organize Now!” by Jennifer Ford Berry. It sounded like it would be helpful so I picked it up. I’m hoping it will help me with my goals of sticking to the 52 Weeks of Organizing Challenge.
This week’s goals:
- Get a minimum of 7 hours of sleep
This is a tough one for me. I tend to stay up late doing things, since the kids don’t go to bed early. Since I work all day, it’s really the only time I have to get stuff done. The problem is I know I need at least 7 hours – more like 9. I NEVER get that though. My goal for this week will be to get to bed by 11pm each night.
- Jot a short to do list
I do keep a running to do list in a small notebook in my purse. Great for when I’m out or at work. The problem is once I’m home it stays in my purse. I’ll have to work on getting it out and checking it once I’m home for the night.
- Schedule a 2 minute break 2-3 times a day to spend time alone and just be.
“Just be”. Time Alone. I think I like the sound of that. ;-)
- Set goals and then break them into doable daily To Do’s
This seems like it might make it a little less overwhelming to get things done. I’m going to work on doing things this way rather than the big goal all at once.
