Office Supply Obsession

I was reading blogs the other day on Teacher Organization, and I had an epiphany. I was on TeachingLittleLeaders blog, and she was having a giveaway of one of the products she offers on Teachers Pay Teachers. It was a tool to organize your goals for selling items on Teachers Pay Teachers and blogging about it.

Now, understand that I have never even been on that website before (except once or twice when I accidentally ended up there while searching through Pinterest). But, I want this organizer SO BAD; I can hardly stand it! I can imagine myself writing on these pages in different colored pens – tracking my goals to blog about and sell on TPT.  Even better, since you download the pages, I would need to purchase a new hole punch so I could bind the pages together like the one shown in the photo.  That's when it hit me.

I am obsessed with [cute] organization and office [teacher] supplies. I have no intention of creating items to sell on TPT.  But, I would love to own this goal organizer and all that I would need to purchase to make it look exactly like the picture. Did I mention I love the fonts and the cute little arrows, too? I need this.  I want this. It's calling my name.

I love office supplies.  I love organization.  This goal organizer appeals to my every desire. It may be a problem for me.  But, hey, if that's my worst problem, I'm doing just fine. Maybe I should set a goal not to obsess over office supplies?… Nah.

BTW, if you are in need of an organizer for blogging about and selling on TPT, I highly recommend you check out TeachingLittleLeaders.

 

Goals: Getting Started

Setting goals in my mind is equivalent to making a New Year’s Resolution.  I come up with an idea, make it happen for a little while, then eventually, fade off.

It’s not that I don’t take my goals seriously.  I am just a very busy person with lots of interests – like many of you. I need a plan to see some of my fabulously brilliant ideas actually come into fruition.

Why not just jot some notes down on my iPhone and save you from my trials and errors? Because, this is how we learn.  Together and by making mistakes.

step oneTo get started, here are my non-negotiables I need to make this work.

1. I have to make the goal concrete by writing it down.

2. I have to revisit the goal regularly to make sure I’m on point.

3. The goal has to be something with an end in mind so that I can put that proverbial check mark next to it when I’ve accomplished my goal

Please, let me know any suggestions you have for me in the comments. I can always use your help!


Goal #1

Replace negative thoughts with positive ideas. Every time I catch myself being negative, I will come up with something positive about the subject instead.
