I can pinpoint the exact reason for my failure to fulfill my 2012 goals. I didn’t keep to my list. That is definitely why I haven’t had more posts up, and why I always wonder why on earth I didn’t get those things done that I listed at the beginning of every year.
You see, I’ve been reading organization blogs this week and I know now what I have to do. I have to make lists, and checklists. I’ve always been a list person, so I knew this already. It just never occurred to me that I wasn’t a follow through list person. As long as I’m keeping to the list, I’m getting things done. The minute I start flying by the seat of my pajama pants, that’s when things go wrong. So this weekend, I’m going to get a little bit more organized and make my weekly, monthly checklists for my genealogy and my house duties! I’m going to print them out, and put them where I can see them every day. Lists do me no good on the computer, because they’re easily forgotten.
Now I just have to come up with reasonable lists and not overwhelming ones, because that’s a distinct possibility too. Now I just have to go get on the treadmill, it’s the next thing on today’s list. Oy.
