Goals for 2011 – Getting Organized

Much like everyone else, the New Year gets me to start thinking of what I want to accomplish this year. Naturally there are lots of various goals I have and I want them all accomplished NOW. I need to work on my patience and keep in mind that it takes time. To help pace myself I joined the 3 in 30 group on Facebook. The plan is to set 3 goals for yourself each month. That way you don’t overwhelm yourself by trying to change too many things at one time.

Here are my goals for January:

  1. Write in my journal daily.
  2. Track everything I eat and drink daily.
  3. Declutter my Dining Room

To help track my progress on these I goals I am looking for an iPhone app that tracks goal progress. I had a few recommendations that I am checking out. Once I make my selection and try it out I will post a review of the app.

You can find links to other blogs participating in this challenge over at The Tuckers Take Tennessee.

Also to help me keep on track with some of my larger goals, like decluttering and organizing my whole house, I have decided to join the 52 Weeks of Organizing challenge over at Orgjunkie. The goal of this challenge is to complete one small organizing task each week for the whole year. Well, you could do a larger task if you’re so motivated, but a smaller one will work better for me. Since I want to declutter and organize my whole house this year, I definitely think this is a good fit for me. I just read about this challenge today so I will probably be a day late posting about this week’s challenge, but my goal is to post my weekly updates on this challenge every Friday from here on out.

Have you set any goals for yourself this year? Did you join any online challenges to help keep yourself motivated?

  2. Sounds like you’re off to a great start! Keep it up 🙂 *I’m linked @ #3in30 also*

  3. Hopping over from the 3 in 30 link up! I heard about the 52 wk challenge too, I think I might try it!

  4. Try Livestrong.com (also an app) for tracking food/beverages. I’m using it and really like it. Great goals!

    Visiting from 3 in 30. Visit me at http://musingsandmeanderings-mlp.blogspot.com/2011/01/3-in-30-first-week.html

  5. I’m stopping by from 3 in 30. Your goals are admirable. I am going to check out the 52 weeks and join along. Even if I only met the goal half of the time I’d end up with a much more organized house, right!?

  6. Stopping by from 3 in 30 and it sounds like you are doing great! One of my goals is to organize our house before our new baby comes. I hadn’t heard about the 52 weeks of organizing and I am going to check it out! Good luck!

  7. Keeping track on your iPhone is a great idea! I haven’t started keeping track in a visible way, but I’ve found it to be a great motivator in the past. Keep up the good work!

  8. Best wishes on your goals for this month and the entire year!

    Keeping a food and exercise journal is something I need to restart. There are two sites that I’ve used in the past that are easy to use, I just need to use them! haha

    Have a great weekend.
