Can anyone truly believe that September is here? I can’t. Now that August is a wrap, it’s time to look back at the goals I set for myself for the month and see how I did. I also decided what I want to focus on for September and detailed it in my Erin Condren Life Planner. So, it’s time for my monthly goal review! Doing this helps keep me accountable and focused on the tasks at hand.
After a somewhat slow month of July as far as goals are concerned, I really got ambitious in August. And with a big vacation in September, my goals for the coming month are a little bit different.
So, how did I do on my monthly goals?
There were two categories this month where I hit every single goal I set: blogging and decluttering.
As for the others, I feel that I did a decent job. I hit all of my relationship goals except for one and all of my personal goals except for one (I can never seem to reach the two books in one month mark!). In the house category, I decided to postpone the necessary steps toward getting a treadmill. It was going to be more work than we could accomplish this month. Next month this gets picked back up again!
The biggest failure this month was the fitness category. I nearly hit my apple cider vinegar goal, but fell short by just a few days. The rest were just not going to happen.
In the end I’m happy with the progress I was able to make in most of my goals categories in August, and I know where my focus needs to be for September.
September is the month of our big Disney World vacation. I’ve been looking forward to this for a while. Life has been a bit crazy this year, and I feel like I’ve been running around on full adrenaline for too long. Thus, my main goal for September is to try to RELAX and find some stress free happiness. I’m really hoping this vacation will help me reset and that I’ll come back refreshed and ready to take on the world again.
Aside from my vacation goals to rest, relax, spend quality time with my husband and read, I’ve set some other small goals. Blogging is always an important topic for my goal lists, so I want to make sure I keep the blog schedule going strong through my vacation. I’ve pre-scheduled a bunch of posts ahead of time for this. I also want to continue doing some research on the ways my blog can benefit from Pinterest.
Lastly is the Miscellaneous category which includes taking steps toward buying a treadmill, getting back into fitness, catching up with a friend and organizing the office closet. I feel that all these goals are achievable in the month of September
All in all, I’m looking forward to the reset that vacation will bring me. I’m sure I’ll be ready to crush some goals when we get back!
