a weekly plan.
You might remember a few weeks ago when I made my "new year's" post that I had decided to focus on 2021 as 52 separate weeks.
To be honest, this concept has been ah-ma-zing.
Every Sunday afternoon, we sit down for a family meeting, where we go over our menu for the week, make a grocery list, discuss the calendar, and review our annual and weekly goals.
It sounds almost too simple to say that one half-hour meeting on Sunday afternoon has led to three weeks of success in 2021, but it's true!
I thought it might be helpful to run you through the process off our Sunday afternoon meetings, in case you wanted to try something similar with your family.
It might seem like I'm speaking a little too soon on the success of planning weekly and setting 7-day goals instead of annual resolutions, but I can truly feel that something is different this year.
My annual goals seem manageable.
My checklist items are getting marked off.
I'm feeling more productive and peaceful than I have in a while...and we still have time to relax with each other on the weekends and evenings.
Smiling here at the farmhouse today,
I love the first day of the year.
I love flipping the calendar over to start a new month.
I love August, the beginning of the new school year.
I love Mondays.
I really love any chance I have to start over.
And so this year -- instead of focusing on New Year's Resolutions for 2021, I've decided to set a few big annual goals and then zoom in and focus on resolutions for every single week this year.
52 weeks to set specific goals.
52 weeks to track success and struggles & make adjustments.
52 chances to start again.
We've been having family meetings for a little over a year on almost every Sunday evening. We plan the menu for the week, look at the upcoming events on the calendar, talk about things we need to get done at home, and tell stories about our weeks.
We will change it and print it each week.
Hopefully, we'll mark everything off of the list, but if not -- it's not to hard to just transfer it to the next week.
We just want to be more intentional with how we are moving towards our faith, family, financial, and career goals.
Hopefully this will be one more tool that we can use to grow in 2021.
Ready for Week 1 of 2021 Growth here at the Farmhouse,
