So, we’re headed towards the last week of the first month of 2015! If you’re like most people, you’ve already given up on your goals and resolutions. This is why it’s important to do a regular review of your progress. Take inventory of all your successes and areas of opportunity in reaching your goals.
This is something I plan to do every month, because as we all know, time flies. We often think we have so much time to accomplish our goals and do things that truly matter. However, we will turn around and one day realize that half the year has already gone by.
This year, I have lots I plan to achieve. The major one being to finally finish writing and publish my book, in addition to launching a new online program based on my book. This has been something that I’ve wanted to do for some time now (years even), but have always put it off. I finally made a commitment to myself and took the steps necessary to complete it.
I know in order to achieve my goals along with family commitments to my husband, 4-year old son, and 8-month-old daughter, I need to plan and be disciplined. The disciplined part doesn’t always come easily for me. I’m a personal development junkie and with so many amazing programs out there, I find myself sucked into the vortex of researching more and more things. I also love looking into things in order to share them with my readers, not to mention getting caught up in social media (mainly Facebook for me).
This is why I felt the need to do a monthly round up, to ensure that I am not only making progress towards my goals, but I am also taking the time to schedule in important things that matter the most to me.
So, as we head into the last week of the month, it’s important to take some time this week and review the following questions.
1) What went well this month?
2) What areas do you feel you could have improved upon?
For me I found it a challenge to be consistent with the writing for my book. This will be an area of focus for me as I plan on implementing a writing schedule with weekly goals to reach.
3) How well did you do at keeping up with your goals?
Like many people, fitness is an area where I wanted to improve. I’m happy to report that I’ve kept up with my personal fitness and committed to becoming stronger so I can keep up with my little ones!
4) What can you commit to this month to help you move towards your goals?
My commitment is to make sure I show up and do my part in the co-creation process and ensure that I align my thoughts, beliefs and actions to be consistent to that which I want. I will also commit to continuing my meditation practice and working on my mindset!
Now it’s your turn. How is January going for you? What are you going to continue or do differently for February? Please share in the comments below.
