A Simplified Goal Planning Monday (or Tuesday)

I've fallen in sort of a rut with my Goal Planning Monday posts, and I sometimes find myself just coming up with a goal so that I have something to write. Many of my original long-term goals have become habits so it's not really necessary for me to post them each and every week.

Yesterday I was reading an ebook about organization, and it recommended starting each day by prioritizing one single task -- only one, the one single thing that you must get done that day. I can't limit myself to one task per week, but I can reduce the number of jobs I'm trying to tackle at one time. Therefore, I am whittling down my traditional goal planning update this week.

My top priorities for this week:

1. Put all of the winter clothes away. There may be a few cool evenings at the baseball game in the next few weeks, but I seriously doubt that I still need snow pants hanging in the laundry room.

2. Streamline some of the things I need to organize. I've already set up google calendars and have it syncing on all of the devices I regularly use. I need to work some more on cleaning out and organizing my gmail accounts and figuring out what other tools would be useful. I'm reading Paperless Home Organization and trying to implement some of her strategies.

  1. It's always good when goals become habits! That really great, actually!

    I hope you have a great week!

  2. Simplify your goals. You are brave. If I don't post my goals, even regular things like my devotions, I just seem to skip them. I need the accountablity. Glad you can simplify though.

    I hope you simplification and streamlining are working for you this week and you are getting or already got your goals accomplished.

    God bless and have a wonderful weekend.
