A few months back I filled you in on how I rewarded my two older kids (age 5 and 23 months) with marbles in a jar for good behavior to earn a reward once their marble jars were full. Read about it here. Until recently I had a hard time completing or procrastinating on tasks I needed to fulfill.
Here is a list of what I need to improve on give myself marbles for already:
-Calling or e-mailing people back
-Setting up appointments or calling people
-Reading my Bible daily
-complete steps towards my teacher recertification (currently working on CPR/First Aid/AED trainings online).
– balancing the check book daily
-planning my 23 month old son’s 2 year old Birthday party at the end of this month YIKES!
Things I should give myself a marble for and work on but haven’t yet:
My reward that I am working towards is any item of jewelry from Total Betty Society. When you sign up to become a member with them you automatically get a $10 credit to use towards your first purchase. I still have my credit and you can use it on top of discounts. I get discount notifications by e-mail. So I am thrilled and can’t wait to shop (especially for a necklace).
I also read my bible more, know where we are financially speaking and I just feel good all around. I just fill happier, more fulfilled and accomplished. Who knew that what I implement with my children could give the same affect with me. I encourage you to think of ways of rewarding yourself for actions or behaviors you dislike or have a hard time completing.
What do you think?
