    Default 2010 Get a Project Done Each Month Challenge

    For all of us who have too many projects that sit undone for month after month, here is the challenge we need!

    The goal is to do one project a month. Been meaning to paint that garden shed? Time to aerate the lawn? Do those fruit trees need pruning? Have you promised yourself, over and over, that this will be the month you sit down and balance your checkbook?

    One project a month. Let's take those pesky chores by the neck and show them who is boss.

    Madhen,
    Alot of projects I wanted to do for the coming year are
    listed on the twenty wishes thread.

    Can some of them be dually listed here? While the
    twenty list is expansive for the whole year, posting
    them here as individual goals by the month would, I
    think, help with motivation. It would also, hopefully,
    keep one (ok - me) from procrastinating as much.....:>)

    ~I am very very in! Our to-do list is very overwhelming and we really need the motivation to get caught up!
    I don't know whether to start out at the shed or in our bathroom.~

    This may certainly help me focus on one area at a time instead of being overwhelmed just thinking about them.

    This month will be cleaning out my bedroom closet. I shudder to think what I may find!

    I am in again for another year. I don't think I would have accomplished anything last year if it wasn't for this challenge!

    Thanks madhen!

    This month will be organizing, shredding and filing all 2009 paperwork to be ready for taxes. I like tackling it in Jan so I don't have to fret about it at tax time. Plus as bills/paperwork start arriving in the mail, there is no chance of things getting mixed up.
