2014 Goals - The Basement

So Lee and I started working on the basement.  Because the basement is so overwhelming, we just picked a spot and started there.  The spot was a desk and we spent about two hours just clearing that one desk.  If you read on, you'll see the after photo--which doesn't look that much more impressive compared to the before photo (pictured left).

Instead of my usual routine, which is focusing on one wall at a time, we've decided this area needs to be decluttered first.

First Mastermind Meeting

Today was our first group meeting and I thoroughly enjoyed it!  Of course I enjoyed being with the family, but what made me feel really good was I was not alone in having struggles in meeting my goals.  I found out I wasn't the only one putting extra hours at work and everyone had something happened that wasn't expected.  For me it was work, knee problem and the kids activities - there wasn't much room for accomplishing my goals.

But the meeting was positive in that we all accomplished several tasks pertaining to our goals and we all have the drive to pursue our goals even if it's small tasks.

I can't help feeling that if it wasn't for the meeting, not much would have been accomplished for any one--including me.

Post Christmas (Part 2)

Christmas has been put away and I feel much more freer.  Prior to Christmas, it is wonderful to have the house decorated.  The extra decorations remind me of the winter to come and gives the house a sense of homeyness.  After Christmas, however, the house begins to stifle me.  So I am glad that Christmas is put away.

Pictured left is my favorite Christmas decoration setup for 2013.

Creation of the MasterMind Group

On New Years Day, after dinner, we all sat around the dining room table and had the first MasterMinds Group Meeting.  Its a nice crowd with varying life style situations (young/old, married/single, kids/no kids) which is sure to give each of us a new perspective.

Taylor proposed the Group's name of Goal Girls.  All were in an agreement, especially with the nickname of GGs.  We decided we would meet the first Sunday of the month at a local library.

Google Tasks

To help me remember/keep track of what needs done, I've begun to use Google Tasks (Click Here).  You can create a number of Lists.  So far I have two:  The Default List is where I keep the tasks I want to complete and the Jeff List is where I keep the tasks I want him to complete.  :)

Post Christmas (Part 1); Pre-New Years

Although I'm excited about the New Year New Me, I have to be real and still focus on the Post Christmas stuff that needs to get done and the Pre-New Years Day dinner at my house.  Here is what I've been working on/doing:

A New Year; A New Me

Image obtained from Google Image

So I typically am one who does not believe in making New Year Resolutions--why does one need to start or wait for New Years Day--one should start anything new when the mood strikes them.  Well, at the end of 2013, the mood has stricken me.
