Did y’all notice I didn’t post yesterday?
After 31 days of posting every day (sometimes more than once!), it was strange and refreshing not to sit down and write a post yesterday morning. However, I really enjoyed the 31 Days of Organizing for a Better 2010, and I’m excited to tell you that I am in the process of putting together a free ebook based on the series — including each of the posts along with extra resources, worksheets and more. Watch for that very soon!
I did want to take just a few minutes today to wrap up the series with some final thoughts.
What is your word?
You may have heard about the popular one-word alternative to resolutions, where instead of setting resolutions, people choose one word to represent their goals for the year.
Although I still think it’s important to write down actual goals to work toward in order to see change in your life, I love this idea. As I was writing the series, it became abundantly clear to me that my word for this year is intentional.
I want to be:
- an intentional wife
- an intentional mother
- an intentional blogger
- intentional about our family’s TV time
- intentional about what we eat
- intentional about our finances
- intentional about making time for family & friends
Really, the list could go on and on, but intentional sums it up. I want to live an intentional life, making the most of every moment I’m given (which happens to be the tagline on my personal blog).
Set MICRO Goals
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a guest post for the Space Savers blog about setting goals and getting organized. As part of that post, I came up with this acronym about the importance of setting MICRO goals that are:
It doesn’t matter what your goals are — whether they’re related to home or work, your physical environment or your relationships — they should have these five characteristics.
I hope the 31 Days of Organizing for a Better 2010 series has given you the tools you need to set and achieve your goals, whether it was on our list or not, and I look forward to hearing about your progress throughout the year!
What are your 2010 resolutions/goals? If you had to choose one word to sum up what you hope to achieve in 2010, what would it be?
