When Motivation Hinders Achievement


I have set a list of goals for this summer. I have tons of “free” time to spend getting it done. However, recently my motivation has been very little. It doesn’t help that I have gotten addicted to started watching Veronica Mars. It’s a fantastic show, but I think I need to make better use of my time. Another “hinderance” to getting anything done is my husband’s new work schedule. He’s working 12 hour shifts – some days and some nights. Those days that he works nights I have to be quiet and cannot do things that would be loud because he has to sleep during the day. Last night Kevin had a rough time learning how to sleep without his daddy home. He was shaking and constantly looking around him. I guess that makes two of us struggling with this new schedule. I know it will all work out in the end but this first week has been rough.

So that leaves me to today. Today I have decided to write out everything I need to do (to complete my goals). Then I have divided it up into the months that I have for this summer – June, July, August. I hope this will help channel my focus and help me to be able to accomplish everything I need to get done.

Oh, on a side note I plan on posting some of my school ideas and other’s ideas and how I implement them in the classroom soon here.

Summer 2014 Goals


Although this is late, here are my goals for this summer:

  1. RELAX!
  2. Spend as much time as I can with my hubby and puppy
  3. Exercise and lose weight (goal is to workout at least 5 days a week)
  4. Have all my First Quarter materials entered into our Cloud
  5. All current materials I use made digital
  6. Clean and organize our second bedroom (aka storage)
  7. Read at least one book a week
  8. Learn a new song on the piano and on the cello
  9. Try one new recipe a week
  10. Create a Phonics program for my classroom

My goal is not to accomplish ALL of them (but that would be nice), but to accomplish as many as possible. My #1 goal this summer is to just RELAX. Anything else I get done is extra. 🙂

 

What about you? Do you have anything you would like to accomplish this summer?
