When you go on a road trip, you map your course. It should be the same for the journey of life. After all, I view it as a trip.
I have a long ways to go before I reach my destination, but I will get there with ease if I just plot my course ahead of time.
That is what mapping your course is all about. I have reverse engineered my goals, which gave me my daily tasks for reaching each of my goals, now I just need to put them in an order to take a course of action.
I have written everything down, now it is time to organize it.
I put everything into one of four columns: research, first, during and later.
Research is the list of things that I need to find more information on before I can reach my goal.
First, is the list of items that I need to complete to get the ball rolling and start reaching my goals.
During, is the list of all the things that I need to be doing on either a daily, weekly, or monthly basis to reach my goal.
Later, is the list of things that can be done more than thirty days down the road; these are the things that need to be done but can wait until I am deep into reaching my goals.
Since I used the reverse engineering lists from my business and health PUSH goals, this list is quite extensive. It is now organized into main priorities.
The next step is to start adding them to a to-do list, a few each day, in order of importance. One item leads to the next and once I get through them all, my business and life will be running smoothly and I will be enjoying an energized life with my family that follows my priorities and passion.

Mompreneur Weight Loss & Business-Life Balance Strategist
I am a homeschooling mom of 2 boys (3 & 16). I'm always enjoying life with my family outside in nature, in our backyard or on a family vacation. I'm an avid reader of nonfiction, with some fiction thrown in here and there. The favorite parts of my days are reading aloud times with my family - either as a Bible study or just enjoying a good book. After God and my family, my passion is helping mompreneurs lose weight so they can live a healthy lifestyle with healthy kids and a healthy business.
