“Today I shall behave as if this is the day I will be remembered.” – attributed to Dr. Seuss

I read this on Facebook and thought, “Exactly!”

This is one of my primary aims for the last leg of Round 3 – and beyond.

Stephen Covey suggests we imagine what we’d like said at our funeral and live in such a way that it will be the case.

While I do have grand plans, sometimes things get in the way. Life does happen.


Total lack of ambition.

Family time (a good “distraction”).

So, I can 1) kick myself for not getting everything done that I’d hoped; 2) throw up my hands and say, “Why bother?” or 3) rest when I need to; push myself to at least do something; and always, always, always allow family time to push other things down the priority scale.

With that in mind, these are my tentative goals for the coming week.

Family Time

– hang out with my daughter and watch some TV we enjoy just ‘cuz

– finish watching We Bought a Zoo with my daughter and hubby

– chat with Sons #1 and #2


– finish the line edit of my client’s first eight chapters.

– whatever else comes along this week


– prayer journal daily

– at least one blog post for SNEI plus ROW check-ins

– three posts for Monday Motivation

– a picture book manuscript


– two picture book manuscripts


– read the Bible each day

– read a chapter in Worship Matters

– finish Sketch Behavior


– walk two or three times

– two upper body workouts

– two lower body workouts

– eat better
