August goals banner

July has come to an end and it’s hard to believe that the summer is half over. With August’s arrival, it’s time to set up a new list of monthly goals. I’m not going to lie, July was a bit of a writeoff in many ways. Too many distractions, family visits, enjoying the nice weather and other things kept me busy in ways I hadn’t expected. Before I share my August goals, let’s take a moment to see how I did with my July goals. How did I do with my July goals? Life goals Read at least 10 books. Almost didn’t happen, but squeezedRead More →

June is over and with it, we shift into the second half of 2019. Where has the time gone? July’s arrival means it’s time for monthly goals.

How did I do with my June goals? Read at least 10 books. Just barely. I still read every day, but certainly didn’t put as many hours into it as previous months. Check outRead More →

Hello June! We are mid-way through the year already, can you believe it? Time just seems to be flying by. The arrival of June means it’s time to list my June goals. I know June is going to be a fairly busy month, thus I made the decision to cut back on my goals. This will allow me to focus my time and energy on some things that really need to get done that have been put off for too long. Also, it’s the final month of school, the boy is in soccer and it’s getting nice enough outside that I don’t want to beRead More →

May is here! Can you believe we are already in the fifth month of the year? Time seems to be going so fast. I blinked and April was gone. A new month means it’s time to talk about my monthly goals.

First, let’s take a look back and see how I did with my April goals.   How did I do with myRead More →

March has come and gone in a flash and now we are in April, the fourth month of the year. Sometimes, it can be annoying when months go by too quickly. However, in this case, I am glad for it. April brings us that much closer to summer. That means gardening season and being able to go outside without being bundled up. Of course, a new month means it’s time to sort out my April goals. Now that I have been doing these goals for several months, I feel like I am starting to build a good monthly routine that allows me to reach mostRead More →

March is here and that means it’s time to set up my goals for the month. I don’t know about you, but February went by far too quickly. Of course, it is a short month, but even so, it did seem to come and go before I really had time to really appreciate it. Even when the previous month flies by, I always look forward to a new month. It means I have a new set of goals to work towards and new opportunities to explore. March goals are a bit similar to February’s, but I am working on adding a new thing each month,Read More →

Well, February totally snuck up on me. I can’t believe that we are already in the second month of the year. I suppose it is good that time is going quickly because that means winter will be over soon. A new month means it’s time to get new goals.

Before we dive into this months goals, I want to take a moment and look back on how I did with January’s goals. How did I do with myRead More →

January is here! Not only are we entering a new month but also a new year. It’s the beginning of new opportunities, which means setting up new goals. Much like in the previous months, my January goals will encompass various aspects of my life. Though it is a new year, which means I have a lot I want to accomplish, I also don’t want to burn myself out right out of the starting gate. So January is going to be a light goals month, but it will also allow me to evaluate where I want to go over the course of the year and adjustRead More →
