How quickly February flew by, stealing with it all of my time. Damn you, Time Thief!
2019 hasn’t been the best for me so far, in regards to managing my time and reaching goals. Circumstances outside of my control have nipped in and messed up my plans.
However, I continue to make monthly goals and look back over the ones previous while trying not to get too downhearted.
Last month’s goals
February was a busy month. I was still recovering from January’s medical issues and our house purchase completed. The move was not as smooth as I’d have liked and I wasn’t able to keep control of my on or offline responsibilities.
We also have some family medical issues ongoing that meant more hospital visits to see family members and being around on short notice for when our assistance was needed.
1 – Write 20k – This was part of the 85K challenge. I was already been overly optimistic when I made this, but I came nowhere close – PARTIALLY COMPLETED
2 – Update 10 blog posts – This is always considered my “easy goal” and yet I failed, so not great! – PARTIALLY COMPLETED
3 – Organise my craft room – My craft room is where I run my business, do my blogging, do my writing, store all the household documents… so there’s a lot to organise. I did get it set up and some of it is organised but I didn’t get a chance to complete it – PARTIALLY COMPLETED
4 – Overhaul my shop – I managed to get this mostly done, but again situations cropped up and I wasn’t able to block out enough time to complete it – PARTIALLY COMPLETED
5 – Launch a video – This was probably stupid of me to add it to February’s goals. I knew it would need a decent amount of time and energy to complete, I barely had the SPACE to work on this – NOT STARTED
Overall… I failed miserably last month. Like, the worst I have ever failed at my goals… Oh well, we always have this new month.
This month’s goals
01 – Write
With a lot of stuff going on in our lives with family, house, health etc, I am just changing this to just write. Write something. Write anything. I just need to get something down so that I’m not going stir crazy.
02 – Sort banners
I’m almost done with the post updates, so I’m changing this to adding new banners to my Pages.
I want to give my blog a certain look and I am close to being there. But there are some inconsistencies with the Pages I want to rectify. I also want to organise my Pages.
03 – Post 2 reviews
If you’re on my newsletter, you will know that I wanted to start doing 2 reviews a month. I did one in January and then everything hit and I haven’t done any since. So I want to make sure I actually DO them.
04 – Organise my Craft Room
I’m re-adding this because I seriously need to get this completed. I need to be able to find everything and have space to work.
Now if only I could find my label maker!
05 – Add more products
With the shop being offline for so long I need to crank it back up, that means adding new products and building up my inventory.
I should be able to manage that. I’m not giving myself a quantity amount to aim at, as that will definitely be a way to fail. Right now I just want to get on track to doing something.
06 – Launch a video
If I was smart, I would take this off my current goals list for the time being… however I signed up for a workshop as a way to hold myself accountable and I’m hoping it will help me complete this. We shall see. 🙂
Once again, I’m leaving it at just a few goals. After all, I’ve failed miserably the last two months and during March I’m going back to England for a week so I’m already losing those days of work.
Are you hitting your goals?
