This is my first New Year with two kids. I’m taking it simpler than even “hopes” for this upcoming year. I’m taking it one day at a time here people. I can’t take credit for the idea though – my fellow blogger, Vivian, over at CtWorkingMoms.com had the idea first (but weekly). I think Gretchen Rubin also did something similar when she was writing The Happiness Project. (BTW, this is a book I would highly recommend for a little New Year’s reading).
Come up with a list of several things I’d like to do every single day – small things. Put those into a jar and pick one a day. It could be in the morning for that day, or the night before for the next day. Start that thing as a daily routine and then choose another one for the next day – adding to the previous days’ things. Track the whole thing somehow. Don’t kill myself over it.
First thing I did was create quick a list for myself. Then I emailed a bunch of people to see what their “one thing” would be and noted those.
