Just do it

Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday

The whole point of the KidsGoals is to help parents and caregivers teach children to be proud of who they are and that anything is possible if they put their mind to it. One of the most important aspects of goal setting for your children is follow through. Rather than putting off something that needs to be done at a more convenient time, teach them that that there is no time like the present and to just do it!!!

Lately Cassie and I have made a pact that when an idea for our kidsgoals website, blog or newsletter comes to us we will stop everything that we are doing and get on it. It has made a huge difference. We are getting things accomplished that we would normally drag our heels on until the last minute. I am starting to realize being the Queen of procrastination that I am or rather was, that you can unlearn a bad habit and replace it with a much more positive one. Something like a muscle, the more you use it the stronger it gets.

We all know that children learn by example so make it a point to show your children how important it is not to put off things that need to be done. I find that unfinished business haunts me and makes it difficult to move forward. On the other hand when I follow through and get it done it gives me a sense of accomplishment and pride. What a great thing to teach your children and something that can only benefit them in their adult years.

Cheers, Monicka
