It’s the start of a new month, so this is when I take stock of my monthly goals. Looking back on those from the previous month and creating new ones to move me forward.
On a personal note, we finally have our house! We are currently moving in and so while my blog posts for the next 2 weeks have all been written and scheduled, please have patience with me in regards to replying to your comments.
Last month’s goals
January was not kind to me. I ended up being rushed to the emergency room 3 times in two weeks. I have been on a lot of medication that has left me woozy and exhausted, so doing anything this month I consider a bonus.
1 – Write 30k – This was part of the 85K challenge. Pretty lofty and impossible to hit due to my hospital trips, but I did write something – PARTIALLY COMPLETED
2 – Update 10 old blog post – COMPLETED
3 – Finish Packing – Yes! It was late in the month but we finally got word that the house was ours. So started the mad packing. In fact, we are moving in today! – COMPLETED
4 – Sort paperwork – My business has been taking a hit due to all the time I’ve been ill, and I got behind on my paperwork. I managed to carve out time and get back up to speed – PARTIALLY COMPLETED
5 – Scripting – This is my new project, video! So I wanted to get 2 scripts done, didn’t manage to complete it but I made notes – PARTIALLY COMPLETED
This month’s goals
01 – Write 20k
While I’d love to make this higher so I can catch up on the word count that I failed last month, I’m already been optimistic about this. After all, this month is when we are moving in, unpacking sorting appliances/furniture etc.
If I hit this target, I’ll still be way behind on the 85k Writing Challenge but that’s ok. It’s about doing what I can.
02 – Update 10 old posts
I’m pretty close to completing all the updates, I was going to make this 20 posts but I need to be realistic as to what I can achieve this month.
03 – Organise my Craft Room
With the move comes a whole new craft room – this is where I work, where I write, where I do all the creative endeavours.
I need to figure out the best design for this room and then get it all set up so I can hit the ground running with old and new projects.
04 – Overhaul my shop
I did a business audit on my shop and while it’s in pretty good condition there are a number of things I need to change including shop design, inventory and processes.
I am going to be closing the shop for a week in the middle of the month so I can give it a good overhaul and start back stronger.
05 – Launch a video
Yes, I will be attempting to launch my first YouTube video. Since I won’t be doing “Talking Head” it means there will be a certain amount of work I need to put in.
But I want to actually start and get into a nice rhythm. I have a bad habit of putting things off and overthinking. So, look out for it! 🙂
