Setting Monthly Goals
For the first time, ever I set some monthly goals for myself. I had some time on the flight back from Indiana with no wifi so I figured I should do something productive with my time. I’ve never been great at setting goals for myself but I know how important they are to have when trying to get specific things done.
I didn’t get super specific with my goals but I wanted to at least have enough meat that they meant something to me. The goals include both things I want to accomplish at my job and outside of it so it pretty much touches all parts of my life.
Since this is the first time I’ve ever done something like this I have no idea what I’m going to be able to get done and what will sit there staring at me all month long. That’s why I just need to throw them out there, keep them in mind throughout the month and see what I can/can’t do. At the end of the month I’ll have a better idea of what I’m capable of handling the following month and I can adjust from there.
I’m not going to post my specific goals this time around but they have to do with things like working out, relationships with specific people in my life and updating my wardrobe. Some are obviously harder than others but getting them written down is the first step to making something happen.
If you’ve never written out some monthly goals for yourself I would highly suggest it. It feels good just to know that I’m thinking about the things I need to work on in the next thirty days. Now I just need to put them into action.
