The Sands of Time

So another week has come and gone.

One of the things I consistently hear my friends say is how fast time flies. And–while it feels like the days are here and gone in the blink of an eye–the truth is, they’re no faster today than they ever have been or ever will be. In reality, we’ve filled them so full it’s hard to know what day it is.

In today’s blog post, I challenge you to consider setting weekly goals for your home. Not major, earthshattering–write a novel or train a horse–type of goals. But the type of goals that will make Fridays a day for recognizing the things that have been accomplished during the week. Without taking inventory of what we have completed, it’s hard to feel like time ISN’T passing us by.

Consider the following:

1. Find a place to record your goals for the week. You can do this on your computer, in a journal, on the back of a grocery list. Just make sure you put something in writing.

2. Set realistic goals. If you have a household full of children, setting a goal of reading the phone book next week probably won’t be beneficial to you. Be realistic about what you can and should accomplish.

3. Determine your reward, (for accomplishing your goals), ahead of time. And in case you’re wondering, the reward doesn’t have to be about money. Alone time, for some, is a treat well-deserved.

Next Friday, you’ll be amazed what you’ve accomplished if you take the steps to set your goals. Feel free to drop me a note and let me know if you finish your list!
