NYNL Day 22: Designate a Weekly Goal


Check out your goal for this month. What is it? Well, I bet you can’t accomplish it all in one day. So break it down into 4 smaller steps. 

Mini Challenge: Make a goal for each week of this month

These should be 4 manageable steps that will make a significant impact. 

Here is my example. My goal for the month of January is this:
House staged perfectly and prepped for market

Well, how do we get there? We can’t just stick a sign in the yard and expect it to sell (we’ve tried). And we can’t just ask the staging fairy to *poof* make it “perfectly” staged. It takes a lot of work. 

No really… it takes a LOT of work. 

So we needed to create a plan that made the tasks less daunting and more manageable. 

Here it was:

Week 1: Fix/Repair damage to house
Week 2: Paint all walls neutral colors
Week 3: Discard/Store all excess items in house
Week 4: Contact realtor… take new pictures… officially list house

I am happy to say that we are 100% on schedule with this! Breaking down our very big goal (living in a different house in a different city) has been broken down into very manageable baby steps. 

Call a realtor to take new pictures of the house this week? 

Why, yes. I can do that. :)
