I marked a big, fat check mark next to something I've been meaning to get done for what seems like years. In fact, it has been over a year since I've wanted to accomplish this task.

What, you ask? Well, our home video footage of the last two years is now safely burned onto DVD's. May seem little, but it's something that I've wanted to get done for some time, and just today, got it done!

Gotta say, it feels good.

A few weeks ago I started making some serious lists. With lots to be done, I figured I better figure out how to do it. The detailed lists each day have been helping me get to things that have been on the back burner. It feels good to see things accomplished that I have been wanting to do.

I came across this President Eyring talk about procrastination a few evenings ago and these words rang true, both about accomplishing secular and spiritual tasks. Reminded me a lot of Sister Beck's talk.
What do you mamas do to keep yourself moving in the right direction? Lists, organizers, what keeps you going?

One of my problems is I actually make too many lists and need to do the doing more often. I sometimes try to over plan instead of using that time to take action. So, I am trying to balance between taking action and organizing myself to take action.

Hi Sarah,

I totally agree. Sometimes we can spend way too much organizing rather than doing. Great reminder.

Guess who keeps me going? You!!! After I read Sister Beck's talk (thanks to you ) I copied it and am trying so hard to do the things that are important, not just the nice things like lunches, massages etc. You are my inspiration and I can't thank you enough.
