So how are your 2015 Goals going? We are almost done with month one of the year, can you believe it. If this is how the years going to go by it’s going to be 2016 in a blink of the eye. We are still at the beginning of the year though so I wanted to bring up goals and how we are all doing with them. I want this year to be the best year ever for myself but also for all of you reading this. So let’s evaluate how January went. For me it was a good month I set monthly goals, here are January’s. I have done pretty well with my January goals, this last week we’ve had a stomach bug going through my house so I got a little of course but once I’m back to 100% I will get right back on track.
I will set February goals as well, I want to do it as a vlog again so that I can get more practice at vlogging. That’s one of my 2015 blogging goals. I’m trying to always keep my goals fresh in my mind so that I can make choices more often that lead to meeting those goals. I wrote a post yesterday about time management here, it is also helpful with planning out how to be setting goals for the future. So let’s discuss making the most of the 11 months left this year.
I think what is most helpful is try to make just a few little choices throughout the month always keeping in the back of your mind what you want to achieve this year. Such as if weight loss is important to you this year. Try making a few small changes such as drinking more water, walking more, eating out less. Not huge changes but if you keep weight loss or health in your mind you will find yourself making better choices and that will add up.
I want to be healthier this year, losing weight being a benefit of that but the main goal is health so this month I started drinking more water and started exercising a bit. Then in February I will keep that up and try to make another change. Same thing with blogging. There are so many things I want and need to do with my blog and business and if I try to think of all I want to do it becomes overwhelming. So I make an effort to throughout the day ask myself is what I’m doing right now helping me reach my goals, if yes then awesome keep doing it. If not can I think of something I can do right now that would be helpful? Then I try to do that.
Other resources for setting goals and keeping them
I’m a big believer in setting goals and have found this goal setting method to be super helpful. It’s also helpful to set goals more often. I hope you find some of my goal setting posts to be helpful when it comes to setting your own.
Remember the year will go by quickly as they all seem to as we get older, so make the most of what time we have left this year so that next year you are in a better place and have accomplished more to get you to that new place. The time is going to pass anyway. I want to look back next year and be amazed at how much better my life in a year than it is now. So make each month count, make each week count and if possible try to make each day count.
