I'm back and ready for action!

Posts have been scarce during my two-week vacation for Christmas. But I got back today and am ready to do great things in 2008! It's really hard to work on goals when you're at someone else's house living out of a suitcase, so I'm glad to be back in my own house so I can get started with my plans.

I already mentioned many of my goals in my previous post, but I came up with another one that is really key to achieving all the rest - ORGANIZATION! I want to organize my life in such a way that I make time for the important things.

That means staying on top of cleaning, cooking, laundry, etc. (the stuff I don't currently enjoy doing). It also means setting a work schedule and sticking to it (I work from home, so I've been known to work until midnight before. But not anymore!) It also means that I have to stop procrastinating projects and tasks I need to accomplish.

2008 is the year that I get organized and just do it!

Ooh...yes, I love your goals and I have some of the same ones. When are you going to post on them? You are probably really busy these days, but I hope you keep writing posts for this blog!

I hope you don't mind me taking a peek Holli. :-) As far as goals...yours are breathtaking to me. (In a good way...I just can't seem to plan like that anymore.)

Currently mine goals are walking 5 days a week for at least 40 minutes...attending my weekly WW meetings and organizing all of my laundry. With children it can get out of hand. I need to get through it all. I am very, very hardcore.

The FlyLady theme for this year is "do it now. Don't wait. Get things done in 2008". Yes, I get all the FlyLady emails, and filter them into a folder. They help me with having a positive attitude, and not getting overwhelmed by the house falling apart around me. Other cheesy FlyLady slogans that help me: "Housework done incorrectly still blesses your family" "I can do anything for 15 minutes" "Progress not Perfection" Sometimes I tell myself:"just 5 minutes" And amazingly even 5 minutes can make a difference in the house and in my attitude. I can't function without a timer.

Alyn -

Despite hating the irritating look of FlyLady's website, I do love her methods. I haven't been practicing lately, though, so your post is a good reminder.

15 or even 5 minutes really DO make a difference. And it's not much time to invest - I sometimes wonder why I procrastinate housework that will really only take 15 minutes!
