I really enjoyed having set goals for the month of November. It gave me a purpose for the month and I was able to hold myself accountable.
That being said, 10 goals was way too many, especially for a month with holiday gatherings.
So let’s round up my goals for the month of November and see what I want to achieve in December.
- Have more productive weekends. FAIL. I’ve started taking medications for anxiety (which I’m trying to be really open about because there’s such a stigma about it), and it’s taken a lot out of me. Weekends have just been for resting, which I’ve definitely needed. So it’s technically a fail, but I’m not too bummed about it.
Start an email list. PASS. Sign up on the sidebar! Emails go out every Monday morning with the previous week’s posts.
Make a plan for opening an Etsy shop. FAIL. I started thinking about what to sell and I’ve actually started making some of these things, but I’m far from having a plan.
Do more link-ups. FAIL. Didn’t do a single one.
Watch less television. FAIL We canceled TV, but now I’ve started watching more Netflix. Hello, Parks and Recreation.
Read more. PASS I finished my giant book on the 29th, which means I read roughly 700 pages in less than three weeks! Now I just have to keep the momentum up.
Order holiday cards. FAIL I don’t even know what they’re going to look like.
Spend more time with friends. PASS I had to say no a few times thanks to the sleep-inducing anxiety meds, but I’ve definitely been hanging out with friends more.
Use Rosetta Stone more. FAIL Didn’t use it once.
For December, I’m just going to carry over the goals I failed, and I won’t be adding new ones until I get most (if not all) of them done. So let’s see what the month will look like:
- Have more productive weekends. This will be especially hard with holiday parties and such, but I’m going to try!
Make a plan for an Etsy shop. My goal is to open it January 1, so it’s crunch time.
Do at least one link-up. Making it measurable will hopefully make it more realistic for me.
Watch less television. Sorry, Parks and Rec.
Continue to read more. Let’s see if I can read the next giant book in the series in one month!
Design and order holiday cards. The ordering / printing won’t be hard since I work for a printing company. It’s deciding on a design that will be a challenge.
7. Use Rosetta Stone once per week. Again, I’m making them measurable.
- Don’t spend money outside of gifts, groceries, rent, etc. I shouldn’t be buying myself stuff so soon before the holidays, anyway.
Hopefully this month is a bit more successful! I’ll give an update in the new year!
