July has arrived and that means we are officially in the second half of 2020. This also means that we are solidly in summer, the kids are finally out of school and the weather is turning nicer – though some days it has been unseasonably hot already. You may find that life is getting busy, but that doesn’t mean you should skip setting monthly goals. Even just a few will keep you moving towards a greater long-term goal. For me, a new month means it’s time to set some goals. Before we get to my July 2020 goals, let’s take a minute to review howRead More →

Can you believe that it is already June? The sixth month of the year means the arrival of summer. This means warmer weather should be heading our way and that the garden season is finally starting in Northern Ontario.

Before we go over my June 2020 goals, let’s take a moment to look back at how I did with my May goals. May goals review May was such an incredibly busy month! IRead More →

It’s hard to believe that May is already here. Despite everything that is going on in the world, the last few months have flown by and we are steadily approaching the middle of the year. However, unlike March, April was a solid month. Sure, there is still plenty of uncertainty in the air and some of us are still adjusting, but for me, everything fell into a rhythm. The arrival of a new month means it’s time to reassess my goals and tailor them to my needs. Before we get into my May 2020 goals, let’s take a moment to look over how I didRead More →

March was a crazy month, wasn’t it? This was by far the strangest and most unpredictable month. We all had setbacks to overcome, changes to embrace and a new way of life to adapt to. A lot of people struggled, while some had an easier time. Regardless of these life-changing times, we will get through it. I know a lot of people set monthly goals and will likely be disappointed that they didn’t reach them this month. Don’t worry about it. Be happy with what you did get done, no matter how big or little it was. I know I also had to adjust toRead More →

Can you believe that March is here? The months are starting to go by a bit faster again and I think that has everything to do with the added daylight. This is a good time of the year as winter is loosening its grip and there is more to do outside. Of course, where we live, it will be quite a while before the winter weather leaves, but it’s exciting nonetheless. With the arrival of each month, comes a new opportunity to set some new goals and work towards a number of things. Before we take a look at my March 2020 goals, I’d likeRead More →

Just like that February has arrived. January was quite a month, and I’m sure many people will agree that it felt significantly longer than it actually was. The start of the year either goes by super fast or drags on. This was one of those slower times, but it’s over now. One of the things I look forward to with the arrival of each month of reviewing the previous month’s goals and setting new ones for the current month. Before we take a look at my February 2020 goals, I’d like to take a moment to share how I did with January’s goals. January GoalsRead More →

The final month of the year has arrived. It’s amazing how time flies. This month is the chance to tackle any of your remaining 2019 goals. The important thing to remember is to not burn yourself out. While it’s nice to get everything accomplished, sometimes we have to accept that there simply isn’t enough time for it all. Especially with the holidays coming up, we tend to be a bit stretched thin this month. Your December goals should be reasonable, while still aiming to get stuff done before the new year.

November is here! I can’t believe it. This month completely snuck up on me. Despite this, I am ready and eager to tackle another month of goals. The last few months of the year always seem to fly by, but they are also some of the busiest. These are the months I rush to get all of our winter prep done.

October has arrived. I don’t know about you, but it feels like the closer to the end of the year we get, the faster the months pass us by. I could have sworn that only yesterday was the beginning of September, and yet here we are, a few days into October. A new month means it’s time to talk about my goals. The last couple of months have been a bit crazy and I haven’t been hitting my goals. However, that has not deterred me from continuing to set them each month.
