Setting monthly goals is a great way to focus on what you want to get done. Choose a goal to finish or break a large goal down into smaller chunks each month to accomplish something over a larger time span.
November was a good month. I gave myself goals to work ahead so I could relax a little more come December and the holidays and I feel like I got a good amount done. I still have more to do but I checked some tasks off the to-do list and I’m please with my accomplishments.
Yeah… notice that we are already halfway through November? I had this post ready but then because of the gratitude challenge and the 15 Days to a Healthier You I put off posting this. Thankfully it’s kept my goals at the front of my brain so I’m getting things done at a pretty quick pace 😀
What the heck happened to September? I know for certain I packed too much on my plate because my own goals got pushed to the side since they weren’t urgent. Not a good plan! While I enjoyed everything I did and the book launches I was a part of and the places I got to go… I’m bummed I didn’t get my goals checked off. But thankfully I’ve learned that my worth is not based on a finished to do list and I can give myself grace to see all the good that did get done.
But before we jump into my goals for the start of fall I’ve got to go over the goals I set for August. They were relatively simple but helped me to be purposeful with the last chunk of summer rather than letting it slip away without doing the fun things I had in mind.
It hit me the other day that we are less than five months from Christmas. Ack! I’ve got to get thinking about gifts to spread out all that spending or at least make sure our bonus accounts are being tended so we have that little bit of extra cash.
However, it’s still 90* outside so I’ll put off Christmas for a few more minutes while I realize I haven’t done a lick of school shopping.
The first month of summer break is over – what? I suppose being gone for two weeks on vacation did not help the time pass any slower. We are finding a groove but I’ll talk more about that as I go over my goals from June!
It was a great month for accomplishing goals! I set out what I planned to do and feel ready to face three months of all five kids at home. In fact, this is the first summer in years that I’m not panicking about that thought! The little boys are showing how grown up they are getting by actually staying in the yard and following directions when we play. It’s going to be a fun summer!
Happy May Day! I hope you all enjoyed your Easter season and the signs of spring. Apparently we needed to be reminded of winter an extra time as we got hit with about three inches of snow last week. It came down all darn day after being 70 a few days prior. I’m ready for 70s again! I want to play outside and go for walks.
This month was crazy. It was going all dandy and we were looking forward to a family vacation when one by one we started dropping like flies to a stomach bug. Thankfully we were able to defeat the bug and all get healthy again but that week seemed to take forever and really took a lot out of all of us. It also really affected our goals for the month.
