Check-in time! How did you all do on completing your top 3 goals last week?
I completed 2 out of 3, but, as promised, I still paid myself. Have my hair appointment all set for Saturday afternoon!
Are you learning anything new about yourself when setting and accomplishing goals?
With this new method of tackling only 3 things a week, I’ve learned how I can sabotage my own success. For instance, I entered a First Paragraph competition via Nathan Bransford’s blog, instead of focusing on my entry for Glimmer Train. Eventually, I submitted my short story to G.T., but I could have avoided the extra stress. That’s what Commit to 3 is all about. Maybe you’re like me and can set goals, but have a hard time focusing on real priorities.
This week, I tried to list the 3 things that have hard and fast deadlines. 2 of the 3 apply.
My Commitment to Me
I commit to:
1._Schedule 4 dr appts, (misc. – been putting this off .. Errr)
2.__Review class notes and incorporate lesson plan changes as necc for Saturday’s class

My salary is:

Copy and paste your “Commit to 3” in the comments. Let’s keep each other accountable – but realistic. And don’t forget to Pay YOURSELF!
