Weekly Goals 2/5/2012

(Photo taken February 4!)
During the last few days of January, I finally identified some goals for 2012, and I also reached the conclusion that it would be a good idea to set a few weekly goals that would help me to reach the yearly ones.  My intent is to try and do a "Weekly Goals" post every week and also to recap how I did with the previous week's goals.  Obviously I can't post a list of everything I hope to accomplish in a given week; I will just post a few weekly goals that line up with the yearly ones.  So here is this week's list:

1.  Memorize Psalm 19:7-10.
2.  Read one chapter in Essential Virtues.
3.  Exercise 3 to 5 times.
4.  Plan healthy menus; cook healthy meals.
5.  Declutter for 1 hour in computer room.
6.  Make 8 small craft items for gifts or possible sale.
7.  Work ahead on study for next Sunday School lesson.

Now, as to how I did last week.  I only fully accomplished 2 of my seven goals -- planning healthy menus and writing to faraway family.  I partially accomplished 3 of the seven goals, involving Scripture memory, decluttering, and crafting.  I had planned to memorize 5 verses and only managed two, but went on to a different passage for this week to stay with the program I'm trying to use.  I only spent about 15 minutes decluttering and crafted 3 of the small items.  And 2 of my goals -- exercise and reading -- were not accomplished at all.  So I am definitely hoping for a better week this week!


  1. At least you have goals! Our pastor used to say, "If you aim at nothing, you're bound to hit it!" You at least got a few things done, as opposed to accomplishing nothing toward your yearly goals. I think you did great!

  2. Thank you so much for the encouragement, Susan! I agree wholeheartedly with your pastor's saying. I have told my Sunday School ladies so many times that if we aim at nothing, we'll hit it every time. And you're right -- instead of beating myself up for what didn't get done, I should be thankful for what I did accomplish and keep aiming at my weekly goals. Thanks so much!
