Learning To Take Things Easy March 2018 Monthly Goals

When I started to reflect on my month, I thought of all the things that had gone wrong. I traveled suddenly for a funeral, had sick kids for a week and life was in chaos.

I just knew that I did not get any of my goals done. That in this mess where so much had gone wrong that when I checked my list off for the final time that I would not see my goals done.

I was shocked to see I had got goals done. That even though it was not all of them a lot did get done. That without my list I would have felt like nothing had been done when in fact a lot more got done than I realize.

I also realized that taking time off and taking things easier was really nice. The extra time I had with my family did more good than I would have been without that time.

As always my goals are divided between the three things: blog, family and personal.

March 2018 Blog Goals

February was a really slow month for the blog. It turned 6 years old. Which is huge. I was only going to do this a year and be done! Yes, one year. And here I am 6 years later still going. Because of last minute travel for a funeral and taking most of the month off because of this. I did not get my goals done. BUT I did get a few things started. I will have one of the big selling sets out this month. I’m also going to be doing it as a growing bundle with a low starting price. So keep at eye out for that. I’ll be letting those on my newsletter know about it first!

  • Have A Themed Week of Dinosaurs for the 6 year anniversary
  • Start round up themes on the blog for my non-seasonal activities (Do you have a round up of mine you would like to see done?)
  • Post more crafts on the blog.
  • Update web site for https and design changes.
  • Plan for the big winter release: Romping & Roaring Second Grade Sight Word Packs & Interactive Number Books (Coming VERY soon)

  • Make a list of requested projects to finish – Do you have a request?

March 2018 Family Goals

I did get family goals done. It was strange but I made time for it. I enjoyed seeing a lot of my family as I traveled for a funeral. It was sad but good at the same time. I had my parents visit and I took time off from everything to spend a little time with them and my girls. We had a fun time. It is always important to remember family.

  • Upack more and declutter more!
  • Organize what we have unpack better
  • Limit computer time for everyone – including me!
  • Read to my girls every day.
  • Do a Family Movie or game night twice a month
  • Fill out TO DO LIST daily
  • Make a weekly menu!
  • Make daily and weekly chore charts for my girls

March 2018 Personal Goals

My personal goals really went bad this month. I know that when my personal goals get done everything else happens. Don’t let people tell you that personal time and things for yourself are not important. They are! I hope to improve in March and see progress at the end.

  • Limit all sugary drinks
  • Daily Fitness – walking 6 days at least week – Even with all the packing fitness still needs to happen.
  • Make 10,000 steps EVERY day – weekends too. Keep track using Fitbit Charge HR Wireless Activity Wristband.
  • Schedule my tasks that need to be done for: blog, personal and family.
  • Read/Listen to 5 books for the whole month – Pick good books not random books with no meaning
  • Read at least one book about being a better parent
  • Look for the joy in things I used to do

    I’m so glad your list helped you see that you DID get things done in spite of a busy month full of unplanned things.

    I love your goal of looking for the joy in the things you used to do.
