Short Spurts Toward Success! Week 4

It’s the final week of the Challenge! How are you doing? My guess is, from the dearth of comments on the blog this past week, that you’ve been exceedingly busy! I hope you’ve squeezed in time to incorporate the nightly routines we’ve been learning, though.

So, it’s a new year and I’m ready for a fresh start – how about you? Let’s get started by remembering the first three Challenges and then adding #4…
Challenge #1 – Do a quick straighten up of the house before bed each night.
Challenge #2 – Put away clean dishes. Set the table/prepare for the next day’s breakfast.
Challenge #3 – Be sure no dishes are left undone. Fill Dishwasher. Dump the old coffee grounds. Add fresh coffee for the morning.

Challenge #4.

Lay out clothes for the next day. Straighten up/quick clean the bathroom. All before bed each day.

I hope you are feeling a new sense of control over your environment. You’re probably even sleeping better, knowing that you are the “alpha dog” of your home environment. What a great way to lessen stress!

Please be sure to leave at least one comment this week to let us know how you are doing with the Challenge. Remember, each comment gives you another entry to win an autographed copy of Uniquely You: Discover Your Life Purpose” by Kim Avery. Next week I’ll be sharing an upcoming opportunity for you to Discover YOUR Life Purpose – stay tuned!

Short Spurts Toward Success! Week 1

The Busy Mom’s 4 Week Challenge

We know that as a busy mom, life can get overwhelming. But the truth is that there are ways to get a handle on all that overwhelm.

One way is to make small incremental changes, but to make them consistently. And that’s what this Challenge is all about. Over the next weeks there will be 4 Challenges to implement, spaced out a week apart to allow you to incorporate them into your routine.

Challenge #1

Do a quick straighten up of the house every night before bed, no matter how tired you are.

Then… tell us how good it feels the next day when you get up to a [relatively] neat home!

When you make a comment, you are automatically entered into the weekly drawing that extends through the 4 weeks of the Challenge. You can leave a comment each day about how you are doing on this week’s challenge – each comment is another entry in the drawing. Winners will be chosen using www.Random.org, and announced the next week.

Now, what’s the prize? For today, it’s a secret, but you’re going to love it! Before this week is out, the prize will be announced along with a special event pertaining to it. It will be a real treat for you, whether you are a mom, a busy mom, or an overwhelmed mom.

Stay tuned and join in the excitement!
