FHE on accomplishing what you want to accomplish

Last night for FHE we talked about succeeding at what you want to do. The goal was to find tools to use and skills to develop that will help us as we pursue consistency in things we want to do but struggle with.

The opening song was "Nephi's Courage" https://www.lds.org/music/library/childrens-songbook/nephis-courage?lang=eng.

We read aloud http://www.raisinglemons.com/mother/tips/matrix-of-success/.

Several years ago, I read a book by Marie Ricks (I don't remember if the book was House of Order, or if that is just another book she wrote...) but in it she suggests that you "Plan, Prepare, Do, and Review" daily. I really like this approach.

Here are some other pages we referenced:

http://houseoforder.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/38EW-BYUp-handout-2010Home-OrganizationPart-1.pdf (this has a LOT of good stuff for managing a household)

We also talked a little bit about ideas in the book "Change Anything" (which I've read a couple of times).

Mostly I'm posting this for my teenagers, because they requested references to the links we looked at, but I am positive that there are far better resources out there. I think that there are a few people who read this blog... What are your favorite resources for getting yourself to get things done?
