Making Goals

Do you make a goal list or to do list?

I've been thinking about this. I make a to do list daily. Not so much because I can't remember what needs done - although I do sometimes, or is that selective memory?
Anyway, I'm a visual person so to have a list keeps me focused and on track.

Having said that, I also know that's a really big reason why I have so many UFOs. I don't make a goal list weekly - so there's no focus. I also give my time very freely and can't seem to say NO !! Other times I shouldn't say no, there has to be a balance.

I've decided to going back to making a goal list.

My goals for this week:

1. Heart applique for Growing Up QAL.

2. Lace Cabin #6

3. Blue Jacobean pillow case

4. PJs

5. 9-patches 

6. Sewing room purge/reorganization - minimum of 30 minutes

These goals are not necessarily finishing projects this week, just giving me a focus and time to work on them. I want to make some significant progress.
And the only way to accomplish a goal is to make it one.

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with creativity and productivity.

Blogger ate my first comment! That looks like a good list, some fun and some work. Best of luck!

I make a to-do list for chores and errands - that's about it. I do keep a running list of projects, but hardly ever cross anything off! And I keep losing the notebook it's in - I have 7 or 8 notebooks going at any one time, mostly with drawings for new quilt ideas, lol. Let me know if this works for you, if it does I'll try it!
