I’ve seen some bloggers that post weekly or monthly goals whether they’re finance, fitness, diet or anything else related. I get so inspired by other bloggers’ goal setting and their progress. I know it’s late in the year and like any other trend, I’m late to join in as usual. I figured I’ll ease into it rather than make a big declaration like new year’s resolutions. I’ve been avoiding setting weekly or monthly goals for myself because if the past is an indication of what’s to come in the future, I knew I was going to fail reaching my goals. But just like with my financial journey I started this year, I needed to start doing things instead of avoiding them in fear of not reaching them.
I will start out with very very tiny goals and some months may only have one goal. But I need to start out slow so I don’t get discouraged and just quit all together. I’m not delusional and I know myself enough to try to pace it, because I do want to work on myself and improve my life overall.
So here’s my first monthly goals:
1. Finish reading Ender’s Game and go to a book club meeting
2. Work out at the gym at least once a week
3. Write a letter to my hubby, my brother, and my best friend
4. Go to sleep by midnight
These are very easy things to do, but I need to make a point of doing them. I’ve been caught up in just daily things and TV, I didn’t read or do anything else this year. I spend evening hours glued to my couch watching Food network or stream stuff on Netflix. Hopefully with time, my list will consists of more difficult and productive things and I won’t be so afraid of setting goals anymore.
Do you guys set weekly or monthly goals?
