It’s hard to believe that it’s already October. We are now firmly in the final months of the year. The weather has been rapidly changing here, with cold nights and chilly days ahead. October is our opportunity to get the final few outdoor projects done before it becomes too cold or snowy to easily work outside. Because of this, it will be a very busy month and my goals will reflect that. This is one of the reasons why I change my goals on a monthly basis. What works for me in June may not work in October. Keeping this in mind and knowing IRead More →

Can you believe it’s already September? Time sure is flying by, but that happens a lot. One month blends into another and before you know it, the end of the year is fast approaching. September is a month of seasonal change, as we shift from summer to autumn, which creates a decent-sized to-do list but also brings the beauty of fall as the tree leaves begin to change. However, one thing that doesn’t change is my desire to keep creating goals each month and do my best to accomplish all of them. Before we get to my September 2022 goals, let’s take a moment toRead More →

The year has truly been flying by. It’s hard to believe that we are already halfway through August and that means we are quickly approaching the end of the year. Though it may not feel like it, it’s time to start thinking about winter and getting ready for the colder months ahead. I know, it’s still summer but fall comes and goes quickly where I live, so winter is already on my mind. August is always a bit of a hectic month because of that. Even so, I want to do my best to keep a good list of goals to work on over theRead More →

It’s hard to believe it is already July. June went by in the blink of an eye. July means we are solidly into the summer and that means plenty of gardening to fill my time with. Not only that, but it’s the perfect time of year to enjoy the outdoors for other reasons. Though much of my time will be spent enjoying the outdoors and working on my garden, I will be continuing with my usual task of setting some goals for the month. Doing this will ensure that I stay on track for getting important stuff done while also working towards some of myRead More →

The year has been flying by and we are already in June. Even this month seems to have slipped by faster than usual. Even though the month is quickly approaching the end, it’s not too late to set a few goals for the month. Honestly, these goals were planned out before June even started, however, the chaos quickly hit and I was struggling to find time to sit down and actually write them down. Like with the previous months, I do my best to create a list of monthly goals that will keep me busy throughout the month while also allowing for some fun andRead More →

May has arrived in a hurry. The month all but snuck up on me and I felt ill-prepared for it.

Before we get to my May 2022Read More →

Creating goals has become a monthly ritual for the past couple of years. Having a list of items I want to work on helps to keep me focused, motivated, and working towards bigger goals in life.

In fact, I had much different goals for this month and then changed them based upon my needs. Reassessing your goals on a month-by-month basis will help keep you on track and should also prevent burnout and stress – though it can happen from time to time. BeforeRead More →

In the blink of an eye, the third month of 2022 has arrived. March ushers in the arrival of spring, at least in some parts, and with that opens up an entirely new set of possibilities. For where I live, winter still has a solid presence in the month of March, so it’s a bit too early to embrace spring. However, that does leave plenty of opportunities to work on my goals for another month. Creating monthly goals has been one of the best decisions I’ve made as it keeps me on track for working towards bigger goals. Sharing those goals here also gives meRead More →

February is here and while it is the shortest month of the year, it is just as important as all other months. Despite being a few days shorter than other months, February can be just as productive. By creating a list of monthly goals, you can set yourself up for success and tackle those smaller items that you may have been putting off. Having made monthly goals for a few years now, I can attest to how much of a change they made in my life. Now, I have the accountability needed to get stuff done, and by sharing it online, I have extra motivationRead More →

A new month and year have arrived! It’s hard to believe that 2021 is already over and we are in a new year with new opportunities before us. Though many people use January as an opportunity to start something new through making resolutions, I instead will be sticking with making monthly goals. I find that I am more successful when I set goals over resolutions. Breaking down my bigger goals into smaller chunks on a monthly basis helps a lot. Before we look at my January 2022 goals, let’s take a moment to look back and see how I did with my December goals. DecemberRead More →
