I can't believe it's already 2018 and time to set January goals! I was gifted a set of Powersheets for Christmas last year, and they have been a game-changer in how I approach goals and personal growth. Prior to having a goal-setting system, I would set vague goals, take random steps to "reach" them, and let them take over all areas of my life. Now, I set big goals, write actionable steps, and schedule in time to take care of myself. No goal is worth compromising your mental or physical health. In a way, this system actually helps me limit myself and work smarter, not harder - so I have more focus and more margin in my life. You absolutely don't need Powersheets specifically in order to cultivate goals, but I do love the format and simplicity (not sponsored - just a fan!). Since I love to read others' blog posts about goal setting, I thought it would be fun to share my monthly tending lists as we go, so let's dive in to my January goals!
Note: you are under no obligation to set goals or live your life in any way that feels inorganic to you. I love to read others' goal posts and am a huge productivity nerd, so this is one of my favorite kind of posts to write! If this isn't for you, stop back by next Tuesday for the next blog!
Here's what I'll be working on this month:
- Launch all appointments
- Host a webinar!
- Apply for a new passport with my married name
- Update website + social media with fresh headshots
- Have a date night at home
- Go to the chiropractor
- Set up an automatic transfer from my checking to savings account
- Read Business Boutique
- Clean + vaccuum our apartment (shared with Drew)
- Check in with budget (shared with Drew)
- Blog twice per week
- Stick to food budget
- Drink water
- Play with Pascal
- Charge my phone away from out bed at night
- Complete Emily Ley's daily Simplicity Challenge (start here)
That's all of my January goals! Check back in on the last of the month to see how it went!
