Happy September! I know, it’s been September for a few days but I’m writing this on the 1st so we’ll just pretend we’re on the same page. I saw a post from my bloggy friend, NJ, today about having S.M.A.R.T goals every month and posting them for added accountability. I haven’t made monthly goals for myself in a while and I’ve noticed myself not getting things accomplished that I’d planned. By having my S.M.A.R.T (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Timely) goals written out on my blog every month, I’ll have a much better chance of accomplishing my goals.
Since school is starting up for the rest of the world and people are getting more organized on schedules, I thought it would be a great time to start up with my goals. I’ll be splitting my goals up into three categories: Family, Life and Blog (necessarily in that order). The next month I’ll go over what I learned from the previous month and how I measured up on completing my goals.
- Take Soph to ‘Babies Love Books’ every Monday
- Go out on a date one night with Jeffrey
- Get Soph on a 8:30 bedtime routine
- Complete Whole60
- Wear the Lumo Lift 5 days/week
- Read ‘Me Before You‘ and ‘Daring Greatly‘
- Complete build plans for the master closet
- Design first two months of Project Life
I’m pumped about having a written set of goals to help keep me focused for this month. I’m sure I’ll get other things done but I’m confident that these are all S.M.A.R.T goals that will work out for me this month. Do you set monthly goals for yourself? Want to join in and be accountability pals for our monthly goals? I’d love to be Goal Buddies!
