Motivation Monday is Back!

It has been a long time since I did a Motivation Monday post. Let’s see when was the last time? Wow, back in August! The purpose of Motivation Mondays was originally explained here, which was to help me get motivated and get more done. Since that time I have become more busy but still need motivation to stay on track towards my goals.

I have a lot to do now that the new year is here. It’s easy to get overwhelmed if I think too much about it. I have to take one thing at a time and do things one day at a time.

FFR Motivation Monday 010614

Here’s what I *think* I am looking at for this week and possibly the rest of the month with slight variations:

– Teaching my five year old to read. Hubby is home so he’s helping.
– Getting the children back on track for their school work. It’s always tough after a break. Gotta shake off the lazies.
– Cleaning
– Organizing and reorganizing my office, again! Getting ready for tax time….again.
– We need to make some farm decisions – how many chicks to buy, will we buy pullets from the hatchery in March, what seeds do we need, how many plug trays will we plant or buy to get our veggies started, will we take on an intern and worker shares this year? Are we raising turkeys, if so, how many? Will we add any other farm ventures? Will we do any farmers markets? How will we meet our goals?
– Apply to more VA jobs. My goal is to take on one client for 10 hours per week or two clients for 5 hours each per week. This will help us in replacing my husband’s income, just in case he cannot find a job.

What about you? Do you have a list of to-dos or goals for the week?

    Good luck on your list! I could certainly use some motivation. My goals for the week is to finish organizing my parent’s 25th anniversary party, purchase my husband’s birthday gift, visit the eye doctor and write a blog post that I feel should have already been done.

    I haven’t dona a Motivation Monday post in awhile, too. You’ve inspired me to start back! :) Goals this week – get a couple of blog posts written, a doctors visit (hoping for good news), and getting our new puppy neutered. Oh, and staying warm, it’s so cold here. :)

  3. Marcie, it sounds like you have a busy week ahead! Hope you have fun with your parent’s 25th anniversary party and buying your hubby a gift. We need to make some eye appointments too. I have some blog posts ready but others need to be finished. Wish I could get ahead again!

    Donna, yeah, I needed a little motivation this week. Time off over Christmas kind of has me lagging. Ooohhh we have cats to get neutered. I should have had this done after our kittens were born. Eeks!

    Hope you both stay warm, it’s crazy cold here!

  4. Wow, you are amazing! I can’t teach my son to read, thank goodness for good teachers out there!

  5. No matter if you’re child or parent or student or teacher, it’s HARD to get back into the after holiday routine!

  6. Tammy says:

    I need to just get some motivation to do things. I’ve been so sluggish since the holidays ended.

  7. I have a few recipes due this week, and am working on a new site project.

  8. I know I need to get a list going! So many things to do!

  9. Thanks for inspiring me to do something to motivate myself more.

  10. Lolo says:

    I am working on trying to get my son back into the swing of things too.

  11. My motivation has been really slacking lately, and I really need to get back on track!

  12. Shell Feis says:

    Best of luck in the job search! &How fun making all of those farm decisions, it’s like a real-life game of Farmville!

  13. Kathleen says:

    I am all about the organizing right now. I just went out and bought a bunch of supplies today.

  14. Toni says:

    I think I am going to do this. Make a list each monday!!
