"doing" for Lent

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

For me to follow through with daily tasks is very difficult. I think it is even more difficult than say giving up cheese. So for Lent this season, I hope to DO my daily tasks. I hope to follow through on 3 small task goals per day. I read about this idea in an airline magazine while traveling. A young man lost his ability to walk and vowed to take to heart his grandfather's goal setting formula for successto help him meet his goal of walking. In its simplest terms: get a small notebook. Write down 3 goals for the day. Read the goals at least 5 times a day. Attain your daily goals.

The idea is to realize that attaining little daily goals amounts to a much greater overall goal - self respect and confidence; confidence to meet larger, more indefinable goals such as "I am going to become a neat and organized person."

Rather than be deflated by straying off the path to larger goals...nip off each daily "direction clue" and one will likely get to their destination.

1. purchase wood primer paint and paint back wall of bathroom wainscot.
2. clear off kitchen counter papers
3. clean guest room for weekend guests.

So that's that - day one of Lent

    Good for you for trying to stick to some goals even if they are small... Us human beings are known for our procrastination and we love doing 'other things that need to be done' Baby steps is the key to everything, and once you begin you can make your goals bigger one little step at a time!
