If you are one of the people that look at setting and achieving goals as a mystery that you haven't been able to solve, then help is on the way!
First, choose a specific part of your life that you would like to improve. Let's say you want to improve spending quality time with your child. That's specific. How often would you like to spend QUALITY time with your child? Maybe with your schedule you can realistically allocate 10 hours per week. Now let's brainstorm some things that you can do in those 10 hours. Read, play games, talk, do math. Yes, math!
How long should you spend doing math out of the 10 hours you've allocated? This depends on the needs of your child. If she is doing well in math, maybe 20 minutes, by playing games or reviewing facts. If she is not doing well, maybe an hour, by playing games and reviewing facts, too. However, you may need to add some time for remidation (about 20 minutes). You can spend time playing online math games, answering workbook or textbook problems, reading books about math, or even viewing instructional math videos with your child. An hour is not much time, but it will help your child get or stay ahead in math or improve in it.
