Facing Monday is hard enough when you have motivation never mind when it's missing in action!

It's hard to believe a week has already passed since I had my little temper tantrum over some disorganized madness.  I am happy to report that I found my mojo and got myself back on track last week. 

(Note the ORGANIZED chaos in my office now :) )

Home Office

I took some time this weekend to hang out and spend some quality time bonding with my oldest daughter.  We've been butting heads lately and I'd hate to see us drift any further apart.  After enjoying lunch and some retail therapy I think we're heading in the right direction again.  It's amazing what a little girl time can do for a mother-daughter relationship!

Getting up this morning was no tougher than normal but work is quiet this morning so finding my motivation has been a bit of a challenge.  I prefer things to be busy, that way the day just flies by without having to watch the clock, especially on a Monday!  This morning I kept walking into a room and standing there wondering what I was looking for...we all have those moments sometimes but today was a little much.

I finally snapped myself out of it when FedEx showed up and I had to step outside to pick up the package they delivered.  Oh my gosh is it warm out there!  After that my motivation came rushing back to me (thank you!) and I am now well on my way to completing my to-do list for the day.

I find setting goals, or making to-do lists an effective way to make sure I get everything done that needs my attention.  Yes I'm a *little* OCD, or neurotic, or whatever label you want to slap on me this week, but I find I get a kick out of crossing things off my list, I feel motivated to do more if I have PROOF that I'm accomplishing something!

So after playing in the dirt for a little while (that's an ongoing topic you can catch up on in the garden) and cleaning up the kitchen I spent some time figuring out what needs to get done this week and what can wait.  Then I figured out how much time I'm actually going to have to do it all and I delegated some of the easier tasks to my kids.  I'm now left with this list, it should be pretty easy to manage in-between work, the kids softball and baseball try-outs, and other daily activities. I don't write the list in any particular order, I can do it any way I please just as long as I get it done.

  • Clean up the rose beds out front
  • Transplant my seedlings into bigger containers
  • Clear the deck of winter's discards
  • Laundry (this one always finds its way onto my list, I can't seem to get away from it! lol)
  • Wash all the curtains  ( maybe I should have left this on the laundry list?)
  • Learn more about Google Page Rank (blogging is not just for fun, it can be work too)

That's it for the week!  It doesn't sound too bad does it?  I do that on purpose.  If I write a HUGE list of things to-do and I set myself up for failure how will I accomplish anything?  I'd rather space all my projects out over a month and actually get them done in smaller, easy to manage daily and weekly chunks than be faced with a daunting list that I will have no motivation to complete.

How to you find your Monday motivation?
