Intentions for the Week:

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Happy Monday, folks!

We are back from our trip. The laundry process and unpacking are underway. It feels so good to be home!

This week Cooper has camp and I have a lot of work to catch up on.  Time to sit down and map out my intentions for the week. As I write this, I see that I’ve done this for 64 weeks in a row. WOW! This practice has been important to me. I hope it inspires you to do the same whether it be on an index or in your bullet journal. Getting your head in the game every week and writing things down is a great way to set yourself up for success!

Without further adieu, here are my Intentions for the Week:

Monday Pump Song:


Have a fantastic week! Don’t forget to write down your Intentions for the Week to help hold you accountable.



  • Erin

    Good luck with your list! My intentions are:
    1) Reorganize my kitchen. We renovated one year ago and anything I haven’t needed since then can probably be donated.
    2) Make blueberry-peach jam!
    3) Eat some fresh corn.
    4) Pick berries at the farm.
    5) Try to find a way to enjoy my first birthday without my mom.
    Hope you have a great week!

    • Tracy

      You had me at blueberry peach jam!
      Sending you love on your birthday. This will be my first one too without my mom. Take time to enjoy yourself.
