Prepare for Success... Weekly Menu

One of the secrets of getting to where you want to go in life is making a simple TO DO list every day, keeping it visible, and using it as a guide to action as you go through your day. That is the most important tool highly productive people use.  Do you have a TO-DO list?  What is on it?  

I hope we have drilled it into your mind enough that Planning Your Weekly Menu should be on your TO-DO list.  It's on my list EVERY Sunday. I avoid headache, annoyance, unhealthy eating, and spending too much money when I just take 20 minutes during the week to plan a simple weekly dinner menu for the family.  If you haven't already, here's is ours... With the shopping list.
