Life is made up of many pieces, like a puzzle. Here I attempt to put them all together.

My One Big Goal For August 2010

I was going to post a whole list of goals for this month. There are so many things I want to accomplish before school starts and new routines and schedules begin.

But in the end I decided to stick with one simple goal. Get up every morning from August 2 - August 21 at 4AM (August 22-28 is our vacation). I often get up at that time. Sometimes it's closer to 5, sometimes if it's been a night with lots of interruptions from the kids it's later than that. But in order to truly stay ahead of things it needs to be every single morning.


Because if I accomplish this goal the rest will fall in line.

And I got a wonderful idea from this post from Inspired to Action that I decided to try. All ten ideas in this article are good but number 7 seemed like a really great one to motivate me. So last night before I went to bed I put an alarm clock right outside Michael's bedroom door set for 4:05AM. And I have to say there's nothing like the fear of having the three year old wake up at 4 in the morning to make me get myself out of bed when my alarm went off at 4.

Day 1 = Success!
