May was a strange month, I was super productive and yet didn't clear all my goals. That was because I went a little crazy on one goal in particular in order to get it finished because I couldn't stand it "hanging around" in my goals list any more.
I'm not sure how this year is going so slowly and yet so fast at the same time. I feel like we've fallen into some weird wormhole where time is moving oddly. However, one thing is sure, I am definitely feeling like I've more time so that means I've added more goals to my monthly list 🙂 Okay, let's start with the usual recap of last month's goals and how I did.
How's everyone coping with the lockdown/stay at home orders? Not much has changed for me as I work from home anyways, and am pretty much a home bird so I'm lucky that it's not such a big shock to the system. I have a nice chunky list of to-dos that am planning to get done (as well as) these goals, now I have more time since there's a lot less errand-running and family commitments to do. I also plan on really diving into more writing!
It's goal-setting time once again, is it weird I'm actually starting to ENJOY my goal setting?
Okay, so old habits die hard... REALLY hard and I've gone back to more than 5 goals. You heard me, I have crowbarred in a few more goals. Though in my defence, my goals haven't hit double figures.
So let's kick off January with some goals! I've decided 2020, is going to be a good year. Mainly because the last 3 years, haven't been too great and I'm getting a little pissed off about getting slapped in the face with bad year after bad year. So, no more bad years. I have decided!! 2020 is the year of DOING! I'm going to be doing my goals a little differently... instead of crowbarring in as many as possible, I'm sticking with just ONE goal per category. That's right, just one!
So as we enter the last month of 2019, I do a quick look back over November to see how I did. It was bad. All of November I had a low-level illness that didn't fully grab me but just left me tired and weak the whole time. That is until about 2 weeks ago when it finally turned into a full-on "I'm sick and I think I'm dying" illness. Due to this, I barely looked at my goals list and just focused on getting well. My partner was also sick, so we spent a lot of time looking after each other and just bundling up on the couch.
Gooooooals!! It's that time again, where I check on my progress and see if I've actually managed to have a successful month. I do love "ticking" things off my list 😀
So, September flew by. I think I blinked too long and 'poof!' it was gone. However, looking back over my diary where I track a lot of stuff, I am surprised to see I actually got stuff done! *Congratulatory Self-five* One of the ways I was able to do more things, was by "deep scheduling" my social media, damn did that make a difference. I will be explaining what I mean by "deep scheduling" in an upcoming post.
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
