A quick and easy treat that will have pumpkin lovers rejoicing!
Hey friends! Are you a list maker? I LOVE lists. I have notebooks full of lists – for everything. I have big yearly checklists, I have monthly lists, I have daily ones too. I even break them down into blog stuff, real estate stuff, family stuff and food stuff. I have lists about lists.
But I do love lists. They help me feel grounded and accomplished. I’m not a morning person. I’m more of a middle of the afternoon to early evening type of person. That’s when I get to check off most of my to-do’s on my list.
I use to think that if I didn’t have everything done and planned by 8 AM the day was shot. I might as well pack it up and try again tomorrow. That thought put me in a funk for a long time. I would wallow that I didn’t have it together and I was a failure already.
What the what? No past Kelley, no!
I read the book Start by Jon Acuff a few years ago and re-read it this past year. It’s good yall. It helped me realize that I don’t have to be an 8 to 5 type of person to be successful. I can be a 11:45 – midnight type of person and be ok.
Now I make lists. Lists upon lists upon lists. I just LOVE being able to cross something off a list. My daily lists are very specific. Like put away 3 baskets of laundry or photograph pumpkin cheesecake crescent recipe. My monthly are a little more broad. Find 2 new clients for real estate. Create 5 new recipes. And my yearly lists are even more broad. Sell 6 houses this year. Write an ebook. Be awesome.
When I do little things everyday like photographing a recipe or taking the kids to soccer, it adds up to the bigger monthly and yearly things. I’ll be able to write an ebook full of new recipes or I’ll find new clients because of soccer interaction or ballet or karate. Being intentional in what you do every day adds up to your big goals at the end of year.
And you know what? Goals don’t have a clock. They don’t know if it’s 8 AM or 11:45 PM.
So boom. Take that goals.
I should mark “be inspirational yet super awkward” on a list just so I can mark it off. Yea!
