Chalene Johnson’s 30 Day Push Review

I finished Chalene Johnson’s 30 Day Push at the end of January.  I really shouldn’t use the word “finish” because I will continue to use what I learned for the rest of my life.  Within just a couple of weeks, I had a to-do list mapped out, goals set, and a plan of action.

I’m a doer.  I have a Type A personality.  I like to get things done.  But over the last year or so, I’ve managed to get lost in the day-to-day stuff.  Being at home with my little girl is an amazing experience but there aren’t many deadlines in my life right now.  I don’t have lessons to write, tests to grade, or parent conferences to put in my calendar.  And since my schedule consists of errands and playdates, I started letting things slip around the house.  I’m still the crazy clean freak that I have always been but projects were taking forever to complete or not even getting started.

Since finishing The Challenge, I have kept a well balanced to-do list for the day, week, and quarter.  I end my day with making a new list for tomorrow and it feels AMAZING to check things off.  I use the aNote app on my iPhone so I have my list with me pretty much all day.

I have BIG goals, too.  Goals that are going to help me continue to stay home with our little girl.  I have broken these ones down into mini goals, ones that I can reach while I keep my eyes on the finishline.  There are days when I slack.  It pretty much bums me out.  I am telling you, checking things off a to-do list becomes addicting and rewarding.  It’s a habit that I don’t plan on breaking…ever.
