Realistic Goals

My list of things to do today:

Bible study
babysit my sweet little niece
hang out with my brother
type up something for my sis
email about 5 people
do Quicken for our bills
work on new recipes
call hospital about payment plan for bill i just got
look up websites for my mom
call doctor about referral to specialist

I only babysat, hung out with brother - who helped me babysit
Bible study
some laundry
emailed one person
and now I am blogging!

The lesson here is: DON'T be disappointed if you can't do everything on the list! I am a firm believer in lists - for my personality and everything they help me stick on task and do things that must be done. The rest of the week I don't have so much on the list so what I didn't do today will carry over (half of today's list was left-overs from yesterday). So, I think it is ok and even good to have goals of what you want to get done - but it would be better to set realistic goals and also not to get discouraged if it's a down day and you can't get it all done. Aim for the stars and at least you will get off the ground!
