The 31 Day To-Do List Challenge | Family Economics
Several weeks ago, I was thinking about how as a mom I often get overwhelmed with my never ending to-do list and projects that I would like to accomplish. I began playing the “what if” game – what if I created a challenge for myself to accomplish one project per day this year? I was immediately overwhelmed. So, instead I decided to break it down into months. What if I could accomplish one project per day for an entire month? I would feel a huge sense of accomplishment checking off a month’s worth of to-do’s and projects!
What about you? Do you have a never ending to-do list full of projects you would like to accomplish? Join me in this challenge and begin checking things off your list. Here’s how we can do it:
The goal of this challenge is to accomplish projects that always fall off your to-do list. Remember to keep them simple and realistic so you don’t get overwhelmed by them.
Grab a notebook or sheet of paper and begin writing out one month’s worth of projects you would like to complete during the month. You can either assign these to particular days in the month or choose a project each day that fits into your day from the list you create.
My projects will include things such as cleaning out the kitchen drawers, taking a child's bike in for repairs or creating a new list of dinner ideas. My list will be filled with projects that I can accomplish in a few minutes and ones that might take me several hours depending on what my time availability is each day.
I will post my 31 day list in the comments section below so check back in and see the list I create – be sure to share your list below as well!
