I wish I was one of those people who liked to make lists. You know those organized people who have goals, create to-do items on a checklist, and then check them off as they go. That probably would have helped me plan and maybe achieve the goals in the order I imagined. I am one of those people who like to think I have a checklist in my head but really, I'm winging it.
Learning to let go of what I could not control was the hardest lesson to learn but once I finally made the decision to do it, so many of my life goals were instantly more manageable and some even unnecessary.
My current goals include keeping the kids clothed and feed while keeping a job, a blog, and a marriage. These are good goals and sure a list would help with some of these items but, I probably still won't make lists.
I think we are doing okay plus, I figure what will be will be regardless of what I do or don't do and everything usually works out. How is sometimes a mystery but it always seems to work out in the end and that is okay by me.
