The laundry sits there, needing to be done.
The dishes pile up at the sink.
Let’s not talk about the bathrooms.
There is paperwork to be done – somewhere.
What’s on the to-do list? Let’s just ignore it today, shall we?
We’ve tried various planners and to-do lists and systems and we’ve figured out one thing:
They don’t work unless we do.
Turns out the real problem wasn’t with our ability to make a list, but with our ability to follow through with our lists.
Turns out we’re in dire need of more personal responsibility, a better work ethic, and greater competency at our basic duties.
Do we just need to get the grit, hunker down, muster the willpower, and try harder?
Oh, right. We’ve tried that, too, and it didn’t work.
What’s wrong with our approach?
We’re missing a secret ingredient of personal growth –
rewards & celebration
No, not chocolate or new shoes.
We make the mistake of trying to beat ourselves into better behavior, mentally,
instead of building ourselves up, mentally.
The tone of our inner dialog makes a big difference. Guilt is not a motivator. Growth is.
How do we add mental & emotional reward to our responsibilities?
The checkmark next to our to do item is one such small reward.
But telling someone else and celebrating with others is a better, more satisfying reward.
Receiving a checkmark, a gold star, or a thumbs-up from a friend on the same journey with the same commitment to truth and growth is even more meaningful.
That’s why I started Convivial Circle.
Convivial Circle is a community of women, checking in on their specific, homemaking & family management goals with each other, celebrating the small wins and cheering each other on in the midst of the mundane.
After all, we know the mundane adds up to a meaningful life when we do it in love.
Convivial Circle is by invitation only, open to members of Simplified Organization eCourse and Work the Plan Premium.
In the Convivial Circle, we apply our knowledge and make it happen in life.
It’s not about learning more, it’s about doing what we know.
Convivial Circle is closed. It will reopen November 23.
