Beware New Year's Resolutions

by SarahFranco CC2.0
Not to put a damper on New Year's aspirations, but a book I'm reading suggests a good test when deciding whether to make a new commitment:

  1. Is this activity worth my time?

  2. What will I have to eliminate to make room for it?

  3. What will its impact be on my family life?
The book I'm reading is called Help for the Harried Homeschooler: A Practical Guide to Balancing Your Child's Education with the Rest of Your Life by Christine M. Field. It's a good book; I may write more about it later. She actually gets the test from James Dobson's pamphlet, "Fatigue and the Homemaker."
