Tuesday Topics–8 Goals

Life. Love.Lauren

Since January, I’ve been writing 10 goals per month on the first Sunday of every month. It was actually because of the Tuesday Topics series that I started doing this! Originally, the first Tuesday Topic was 10 New Year’s Resolutions. I ended up writing 10 goals, and from there I kept doing so every month. Therefore, I just listed 10 goals for this month on Sunday!

I tend to break my goals down in my head into a few types – family goals, house goals, self goals, craft goals, and blog goals. This helps me come up with my monthly goals. I find it especially important to come up with goals that I know I’ll be able to fulfill. They may take the whole month, but this way I feel accomplished!

If I was to come up with 8 goals for the month that are more open ended but are basic goals for each of my categories, they would be:

  1. Have some awesome family adventures.
  2. Have some great times with the kids.
  3. Fix up or organize something in the house.
  4. Improve myself or do something to make myself happy.
  5. Create a few great crafts.
  6. Increase my blog readership.
  7. Write some awesome blog posts.
  8. And of course, complete something off of my 35 Things list.

Blogging has helped me accomplish more things – when you are accountable you get things finished! It’s one of my favorite things about my blog.

Do you come up with monthly goals?

I'm SO bad with making goals and then actually doing them. I think I need short-term weekly goals to help me get things done. Usually a list works, but I haven't been doing that lately either! I need to get on track since there are a lot of things I want to do this summer before the baby arrives.

I find myself completing all of my goals since I blog about them except for health/weight loss goals. Blah.
