I am a HUGE believer in setting goals. I do them every year. I have already done mine for 2009, but I may have to revise them a bit after reading this. In the spirit of sharing my secrets to success, here is an AWESOME recent find~ I fully intend (hate that word) to utilize this system this year. You can also find an E-book entitled "Spring Cleaning". It is a 10 day system to completely decluttering, organizing, and cleaning your home. REALLY excited!
This is energizing because to ME, when I think of the above stated task, I get depressed, anxious, and defeated before even beginning. My answer to this is usually to just hire someone else to come do it for me.
WHY? Because I feel (and I know my feelings are not fact, but perception is everything...) that the task is one that has no end. That it would take FOREVER. And I will be completely miserable. Oh, and I'd be overwhelmed by just trying to figure out where to start.
So, this system seems really do-able.
I will keep you posted...
I got these off an awesome BLOG called SIMPLEmom. CLICK HERE You don't have to be a mom to answer these questions or to set goals. These will help!
