SoBo Mama's Tips & Tricks

{February 20, 2017}   Goals and such…

Every day in my classroom, I have a lesson plan.  This lesson plan is built around objectives, goals my babies should achieve through said lesson.  Sometimes we get there, sometimes we have to adjust.  But there’s always a goal.

The more successful times in my life, I’ve had goals.  Beating piano man’s ACT score.  Finishing a college degree.  Keeping living creatures alive.  Goals.

For a while now, I’ve felt kind of lost.  As I was folding clothes this morning, I realized why.  My biggest goal lately has been “don’t get 20-0’d in 9-ball”.  And I’m kind of pissed about this.  This isn’t the attitude of a successful, goal-oriented woman.

When did I lose my focus? Why did I lose my focus? How do I find it again?

We all perform better with focus and goals.  Realistic, achievable, sustainable goals.

Everything in my house seems to be falling apart and I am barely keeping it together.  That’s what it feels like, lately.  And my #1 problem is a lack of goals.  I’m not the person who just functions – I’m the person who achieves.  At least I used to be.

So I’ve decided to set some goals and develop some habits.  Defined, specific, achievable goals.  There are so many things in life I cannot control, but my money should not be one of those things.  The Queen of Cheaptitude is going back to basics and budgeting.   Like Dave Ramsey says, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.”  And failure is not an option here.  Goals and stuff….

What makes you feel lost in life?
