Daily Lists for Homeschool Moms

11:11 am Keeping My Home, Moms

Long-term and short-term goals are great to have as you move forward in life, as long as you are using daily lists.  However, these longer term goals can sometimes be philosophical, not very practical or measurable.  I want to share a strategy I use to plan my week & days.

A good way to have a manageable list is to have a daily and weekly set of goals. By doing this you will be always in the position of going towards you life plan goals. Everyday will give you the opportunity to fulfill a certain goal giving you the feeling of accomplishment.

to do list

First, create a “to-do” list for today and the next day and the next! Every morning I keep a blank piece of paper next to me as I read my Bible.  When ideas or tasks pop into my head, I write them down.  When I finish my quiet time, I evaluate my list, comparing it to my weekly goals.

When I get to mid-afternoon, I sometimes have a brain-drain!  I can’t remember what I am suppose to do that day.  All I have to do is find my list and see what hasn’t been crossed off.  It’s a great memory tool as my mind forgets viagra mastercard.

Always review your plans and prepare for contingencies.

As a mom, you know there is always a need for contingencies.  When my oldest was born, I heard that moms should list “to do” tasks on multiple days.  If you don’t get a task done the first day it is listed, you still have time to complete it on the next day.  AND…you don’t feel guilty for taking 2-3 days to complete a task and ultimately fulfill your goals.

This is the first week of January and many of you will be more relaxed with your schedule, whether or not you homeschool.  It is the PERFECT TIME to set goals for 2012.

Get some blank paper and start planning.

You will be glad you did!
