Personal Goals for April 2012

I have been using my  "My Prevention Day Calendar 2012" (which is a wonderful day/week planner with incredible tips and information about food and such that helps so much) to do my weekly planning but I wanted to do more to this and make monthly goals so I'm starting today with them.
Oh and I also use Cozi (from the incredible Fly Lady) on my computer to type these out and work on them.  I highly suggest using this free help!  And if you don't know who the Fly Lady is, well here's a way to meet her and see if you want to become more organized with daily, weekly, monthly goals for cleaning your house!  Ugh, something that I can't say that I follow real well.  But I'm trying anyway!  Just click on the word Fly Lady and you will be taken to that page.

Cozi (since I mentioned it) is incredible!  I really love that I can send notes from it to my husband's computer or to his cell phone.  Nothing like bugging him while he's trying to drive.  It's a text message.  Other features on Cozi (and I use the free ad driven one, can't see paying for it just to get rid of ads on the side which I don't notice!)  are "to do" list, monthly calendar, and weekly calendar, Shopping List, and Meal Planning (my entry about Meal Planning can be read on this blog from 4/2/12). 

complete meal planning week by week
reorganize pantry 
take canned and bagged food and drinks to Food Bank
freezer cooking
read 2 unread magazines and recycle
clip coupons 
create banner for Conversations With Carolyn FB group
create banner for Doing Random Acts of Kindness FB group 
create inventory for Avon products
have a yard sale for the $1.00 Avon products
find a PSP program type that I might be able to use for free

Read a daily entry from "Sanctuary" by David Jeremiah 5x/week
Journal an entry from my reading 5x/week
read a novel on my Kindle

memorize 10 verses from my verses given in my daily devotions.
set up the printer for this new laptop
1-2 new crafts this month and make at least one project to give to someone else

a more patient wife and friend (I'm not asking God to teach me patience, mind you!)

What are your goals for April?   Do you have any suggestions for this blog entry that would be helpful to me in my endeavor to be a more organized woman?  Thanks!

Love it! These are great goals! My goals are to truly enjoy my birthday - guilt free and all; not to break passover; lose 10lbs; and work on loving myself more!

I love FLY Lady! I need to go back to her tips! I remember i started slow - with a clean sink and it totally helped me get in a cleaning mode!

Sadie said...

Wow, I agree, great goals! My only real goal is to get start eating even healthier than I already am, and to have the kids eating those foods as well.

You hit the nail on the head with Cozi & FlyLady. You're on the right track to organization. Just commit to it and it will pay off. Cozi has been my savior. Since my family all has Apple devices (iPhone for the parents and iPod for the child) we can all be in sync with who is doing what, plus it updates in REAL time!!

PLEASE continue sharing your journey through organization. I'm always looking for tips!

I have COZI and have not been using it. Your post has made me want to use it and check out Fly Lady. Good time management means everything to me. Great post.

When we write our goals down, i sure get more done! Great goals! I've got the windows open and the sun shining so I'm hoping to tackle some more stuff this morning!

I do a lot better business wise when I have goals. Thanks for the reminder to sit down and take the time to set some goals and get my focus on right.

These are really great goals. I could fit a few of these into my life, too. Thanks for sharing this.
