Goal Planning Monday for Week of June 20th

Last week was full of recovering from women’s retreat, starting back to work (full-time), and doing even more physical therapy exercises at home. My range-of-motion isn’t coming along as expected. It feels like I didn’t get much else accomplished. I did, but since I didn’t document it, I cannot remember know what it was.
This week’s documentation is below. My goals are as follows . . . 
1. Exercise (4 more weeks of  intense therapy)
  • Walk 25 minutes 3 times a day.
  • Do passive resistance exercises 7 times a day. Incorporate changes from Wednesday’s  physical therapy appointment.
  • Soak in hot tub or bathtub with Epsom salts 2 times a week.
  • Attend pt at the doctor’s office twice.

2. Work (I’m back at work full-time)

Children’s Ministry
  • Transcribe notes from meeting with Pam and plan when to do what.
  • Write letter to teachers/helpers.
  • Finalize summer second service schedule.
  • Gather children’s church materials and print out lessons.
Pastoral
  • Sort out 1st prepare/enrich meeting with new couple.
Small Groups
  • Prepare notebook and address list for class members of Wednesday (66 Love Letters).
  • Call women who didn’t pick up materials.
  • Prepare to lead class.
  • Start arranging Fall schedule.
Women’s Ministry
  • Write out list of what needs doing.
  • Finalize July 3rd details.
3. Miscellaneous
  • Write in my gratitude book daily (with a gel pen in a notebook with purple paper it’s quite fun)
  • Read the book of Jeremiah.
  • Check in daily with maximize your mornings group.
  • Make annual physical appointment for Chip.
  • Finish writing out details for summer bucket list.

Your Turn . . . What are some of your goals in the area of exercise, work and miscellaneous?

 I participate in Goal Planning Monday so I’ll have a record of what I complete each week. I’ll also have a tool to energize my (sometimes) flagging motivation to complete (1) the jobs I tend to avoid or (2) jobs that get overshadowed by the urgent but not necessarily most important items on my to-do list.

Does Making a List Really Make a Difference?

Do you find that it makes a difference to use a list in terms of accomplishing your daily and weekly goals?

Goals for the Week of June 6, 2011

It does for me. There are four reasons why I find it even more helpful if I make this list public.

1. It’s the accountability. I know that some of you will be checking up on me. And some of you even make reference to my goals when I see you.

2. I want to look good. OK, I admit it. I feel that if I don’t accomplish my goals that I am a flake. I don’t want you to think of me that way.

3. I make these public to-do lists more reasonable. Instead of trying to DO ALL the things in my head, I try to list those things that can really be done in one week according to the time, energy and resources I’ll have available that week.

4. Finally, the fact is I never lose this list. It is always available on the world-wide web. My paper to-do list often has other bits of information on it as well as doodles. Sometimes it is used as a coaster or impromptu plate for my peanut butter toast. It can get pretty full and tatty looking and ends up in the trash.

Can you identify with any of these reasons? What would you add?

Below are my goals for the week. Please share your weekly goals in the comments or write a post. Link up at Goal Planning Monday. Let’s see what we can get done together!

1. Exercise

  • Walk 25 minutes 3 times a day.
  • Do passive resistance exercises 7 times a day. Incorporate changes from Monday’s pt . appointment.
  • Soak in hot tub or bathtub with Epsom salts 2 times a week.

2. Work: 2-4 hours a day: depends on what happens at my Monday’s physical therapy appointment

Children’s ministry

  • Write letter to teachers/helpers.
  • Finalize Summer schedule.

Women’s ministry

  • Finalize songs for Friday night.
  • Print and put retreat booklets together.
  • Finalize retreat details.
  • Collect all carpool forms.
  • Decide and buy “decorations” for pail design. I may or may not  get to this.
3. Miscellaneous
  • Write in my gratitude book daily (with a gel pen in a notebook with purple paper it’s quite fun)
  • Read the book of Jeremiah.
  • Check in daily with maximize your mornings group.
  • Get my car from SF.
  • Figure out what to do with Chip.

 I participate in Goal Planning Monday so I’ll have a record of what I complete each week. I’ll also have a tool to energize my (sometimes) flagging motivation to complete (1) the jobs I tend to avoid or (2) jobs that get overshadowed by the urgent but not necessarily most important items on my to-do list.

even sickies need a to-do list

3 weeks ago i fell while hiking. i broke my humerous bone just below the ball joint in my left shoulder. wearing this imobilizer  makes it possible for my shoulder to heal properly because my left arm is tightly snug against my body.

obviously i am not working at my day job. instead my main agenda for this week is to do things that help me heal quickly and well.  i am also working one hour a day (from home of course). to things other than that, i am saying “no,” as i want to put my energies towards the “best” things this week.

1. Exercise

  •  Walk 10-15 minutes 3 times a day
  • passive resistance exercises 3 times a day
  • soak in hot tub one time a day

2. work: 1 hour per day

  • tidy email inbox
  • contact small group leaders
  • order curriculum for children’s sunday school
  • sort out room mates for retreat
  • start rough draft for retreat booklet
3. miscellaneous
  • write 1 thank you note (dtb)
  • do all i can to sleep better at night
  • write in my gratitude book
  • read Ecclesiastes
  • read song of songs
