Punctuality Challenge – Day 15

Today’s challenge from 28 Days to Timeliness is to start decluttering your home. It is so much easier to get out of the door on time when you know where everything is located.  Have you heard the phrase, ” a place for everything and everything in its place?” This is a great mantra. As our family …

Punctuality Challenge – Day 14

  Media Consumption – Do we have to go there? That was my thought when I read today’s excerpt. I know that this is a big time waster for me. Computer time is a necessary part of my blogging life, but sometimes I get so wrapped up in the extraneous things, Facebook, email, etc that …

Punctuality Challenge – Day 13

  My kids and I were headed to a commitment last week where we were supposed to meet several other families in a parking lot. We arrived six minutes early and my son looked up and said, “Mom, are you sure we are in the right place?” I knew that we were making progress when …

Punctuality Challenge – Day 9 & 10

Today my focus from 28 Days to Timeliness was about seeing how long it really takes me to get ready for the day. I have had it in my mind that I can get ready in 30-45 minutes. I am keeping a log for the next several weeks listing the time from start to finish that it …

Punctuality Challenge – Day 9 – The Squirrel Went Berserk

Squirrel in house

We depart from the regularly scheduled post to inform you of a Griswold Family Christmas moment. My husband and I had a chat about punctuality last night and we were discussing my challenges being a semi-stay at home mom, meaning I occasionally work outside the home (about 4-5 days a month) and blog from home. …

Punctuality Challenge – Day 8

Boundaries – That is a big word. www.dictionary.com defines the word boundary as follows: something that indicates bounds or limits; a limiting or bounding line. The focus of our challenge today from the book 28 Days to Timeliness, centers around setting up boundaries in your life. I began to ponder limits and my first thought was that I need to get a better handle on my …

Punctuality Challenge – Day 7

Day 7 of 28 Days to Timeliness found me contemplating how to simplify my life. This is an overwhelming topic. What does simplify mean? www.dictionary.com ‘s definition reads as follows, “to make less complicated, clearer, or easier”. How many times do perfectionistic types try to make a task more complicated? I know I struggle with this. I want to detail clean when a …
