5 For Five - June 30

So what is 5 For Five? In the short form, it is 5 goals you want to achieve this week. Next week, I will report on my success (or failure).

Here were the goals from last week:

1. SMART goal - read 12 newspapers this week. I did this and more!
2. Put the Elks Flag Day book together. Nope. It has to be done this coming week.
3. SMART goal - Write and schedule 3 posts for the next 2 weeks. I scheduled the other 2 posts for last week. I have two more that need a bit of final editing for next week.
4. Mail out 3 packages. Done.
5. Catch the early bus to work every morning. I caught the bus I wanted 2 of 4 days.

So this was a 3.5 out of 5. Not bad. I'm starting small again to get my motivation back.

So what are my goals for this week???

1. SMART goal - read 12 newspapers this week.
2. Put the Elks Flag Day book together and mail it.
3. Start a meal plan for the month.
4. Put together a Shutterfly book.
5. Enjoy some fireworks!

You are probably wondering what a SMART goal is.  It is a term I "borrowed" from Say Goodbye to Survival Mode by Crystal Paine at Money Saving Mom.  SMART goals are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and time-bound.  Since all these goals are really time-bound (1 week), I just have to get better at meeting the other criteria.

Ok, who is with me?  Let's keep each other on track to a better year!
