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 …

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 6

My reading for today from 28 Days to Timeliness focused on using a calendar to help manage your activities and appointments. I have been using a wall calendar on my fridge successfully for a couple of years. I love this one from www.flylady.net. The squares are large and I can write in our activities, appointments, menus, etc. This …

Punctuality Challenge – Day 3

Why are people late? Have you thought about it lately. There are many excuses that we discussed yesterday. But beyond the excuses, are there other reasons? What about personality types, time management skills, and heart issues? Today my excerpt from 28 Days to Timeliness encouraged me to examine my heart and determine my resistance to being on …

Punctuality Challenge – Day 2

Excuses, excuses, excuses. We all have them. Numerous ideas in our head that seem to be the root of our lateness. Today, Day 3 of the book 28 Days to Timeliness had me analyzing my excuses and realizing the silliness of many of them. I have used the one that goes like this, “I got behind every …
