What are your incentives for reaching your goals? Mine may be as simple as just wanting to cross them off my list! (And, it gives me a secret thrill because I actually know and, more importantly, remember, how to do it!)
When I made my list back in January, the goal was to think of 52 things I wanted to accomplish this year. Some things on my list are things I knew I would do. (Was that cheating?? My bad.) Others are things that need to be done, but keep getting put off--all the cleaning and organizing --ugh--, and others are projects that I started, but haven't gotten around to finishing.
I have been amazed at how having a list and being held accountable seems to be making such a difference. I think about my list a lot, and about which one I'm going to work on next. (That is so not me!) I'm pretty sure that my jeans blanket would still be just a pile of jeans if I had not but it on my list.
I've managed to get 15 stubborn and unwanted pounds off. (I blame the Big M for putting them on! I know it's not because I like to eat!)
I recently repainted the bathroom. These are the "before" pictures:
|I got this mirror at an auction for $25. |
It makes me think of the mirror in Snow White.
It's not magical.
|Cool little chandelier|
If I'm not careful with my planning, everything will be complete except for the cleaning and organizing. I'll have no choice but to get it done, then!
Thanks to Jennee and Karen for coming up with their brilliant idea of Project 52. I hope you are having success in accomplishing your goals!
