5 For Five - Oct 6

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

Here were the goals from last week:

1. Finish those May newspapers.  I really need to get back on track with these. Done!
2. Finish the last rainbow baby post. Nope.
3. Focus on Dan's room. Nope.
4. Pre-plan my NPD posts for October. Half complete.
5. Start an evening routine with Shelby. Yes!

Ok, another bad week.  I really need to refocus.  So what are my goals for this week???
I am repeating most of my SMART goals from last week:
1. Read through June 7.
2. Finish the last rainbow baby post.
3. Focus on Dan's room.
4. Finish my NPD postings.
5. Do a phone cleanup and get rid of stuff I don't need.

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!
