I just stumbled across the 3 in 30 challenge (via Twitter) at The Tuckers Take Tennessee. I love this idea! I have lots of goals for 2011, which I blogged about last month, and it can get overwhelming sometimes. I think that breaking them down into 3 smaller goals each month will help me get them done. So here are my 3 for February:
1. Follow my daily FlyLady routines!
This is a habit that I've been kinda-sorta doing...some days it gets done, other days it doesn't. I want to make it a daily habit, because I know it will go a long way towards keeping us all more organized. I'm also trying to get my kids into the habit - they each have a folder now with their daily jobs and homeschool assignments.
2. Get to bed on time every night.
I am by nature a night owl, but after a long day at work, I'm too exhausted to get anything done at night. I started consistently getting up early a while back, and now I've started the Hello Mornings challenge at Inspired to Action, so I'm getting up even earlier. The problem is I also like to stay up late...late nights and early mornings do not a happy mommy make. So I've got to get myself to be at 10:30, 11:00 at the latest, each night. Maybe then I won't require a venti Starbucks skinny carmel machiatto to get me going...
3. Have a family devotional time each night with my boys.
This is a habit I was really good at for a while, but during a very difficult college semester (this past fall) I let it slide too much. Now we're totally out of the habit. I'm doing great with my daily quiet time - now it's time for the kids to see that example lived out. So every night, I plan to read our Keys for Kids devotional, pray with my boys, and spend a little time talking about what God has done that day.
