How fast is this year going? I cannot believe we are already into September. We have been spending a lot of time trying to get our new house in order and it’s coming along well.
But I still slotted in goals and it’s time to look back at how I did with my goals for last month and a look ahead at this month’s new goals
Last Month’s Goals
01 – Complete a short story for an Anthology – Almost Done – Okay so, the deadline was extended which is good because I’m having issues with the ending.
02 – Plan 2 Month’s content – DONE – I actually planned this early on, before I’d made the decision to stop Monday posts. So technically I have 4 month’s content as all my Monday posts will now be moved to Fridays.
03 – Take more Photos – DONE – Not as much as I wanted to, but I did go out walking a few times and I snapped flowers, butterflies and the likes. That is always my go-to for photos.
04 – Create 8 new products – DONE
05 – Complete Business Taxes (Self Assessment) – DONE FINALLY!!!
06 – (BONUS GOAL) Go through & organise DVDs – DONE
Okay so not bad, I even threw in an extra goal partway through the month and managed to complete 5 of of 6. Including the really big one – Taxes!!
This Month’s Goals
01 – Write 9,000 words
I want to get back into regular writing, so I’m starting small with just a minimum of 300 words a day.
02 – Finish short story for Anthology
The deadline for this is partway through the month so I need to get this finished and edited before it gets passed for official editing.
03 – Write 1 month’s blog posts
Since my announcement to reduce my own posts to just Friday’s, I feel I should be able to complete the whole month’s post in a day or two. So that’s the plan.
04 – Read 2 books
I am really trying to get back into reading. It’s shocking how little I read these days!! So I have listed 10 books in my TBR list that I want to start working through over the next few months.
05 – Complete 6 Tasks
My partner and I have made a long list of tasks for our house. We have a deadline of end of October when we will be taking a well-earned break together.
So we want to get through as many of these as possible. Some of these are hefty tasks so for this month I just want to try and get through 6 of them.
06 – Social Media Plan
I ended up falling away from my social media push for my business so I need to set up my schedules, posts and start building up my presence again. I am in Xmas rush and I want to work with that.
07 – Prep for Busy Season
From October onwards my business usally gets crazy especially as I ship worldwide, so I want to get myself fully ready regarding more listings, packaging station, organised stock etc.
