November Goals Achieved and December Goals Set

I decided to start setting monthly goals in November this year. Every year I set yearly goals, but then I forget to check up on them, and then lose sight of them until Q4. I started setting monthly goals to stay more focused, and to have something to work toward.

These were my goals for November:

  • Name change (Not done – More on this later. Don’t worry I’m not changing my blog name again)
  • Goal weight (Achieved!! – More on this in Fitness Friday this week)
  • Study for ASP (Nope, I rescheduled my test, yet again. This is for the Associate Safety Professional certification, that I should have gotten about four years ago.)
  • Start therapy (Achieved)
  • Go to 4 Weight Watchers meetings (I went to 3 out of 4 weekly meetings, I couldn’t bring myself to weigh in after Thanksgiving – More on my Weight Watchers plan coming soon)
  • Finish Dead Souls (This is a long book, and I made very little progress. Long term goal is to read all of the books on the 100 greatest books list, inspired by The Equalizer, cause I’m random like that.)
  • Buy December Bujo (Achieved – I meant 2020 Bujo, and I bought it!)
  • Make calendar for December (Done, see below)
  • Italian lessons for kids (Not yet achieved)

My December goals are:

  • Remaining goals from November
  • See Christmas lights – Every year I say I’m going to see Christmas Lights, I even put it on my Winter List Bucket List, and I never do it!
  • Finish knitting scarf – You can check it out here, I started it last year.
  • Create stickers for January – I really want to start making my own Bujo stickers. I haven’t been ready until now, and I am finally at the point where I feel like my lettering is good enough, and my mind is in the right place.
  • End of year summary – I did a lot this year, and I want to make sure that I spend some time exploring and learning from it all.
  • 2020 Game plan – I have blog plans, Etsy plans, and YouTube plans, and I always lose my focus and momentum. I am going to come up with a plan that I can actually execute and sustain.
  • Set up 2020 Bujo – I bought all new pens and a new Scribbles That Matter notebook, and I’m actually really excited about starting a new notebook. I’m hoping to create a video of the new setup my process.

Do you set goals? Are you a yearly goal setter or a monthly goal setter?

    I kind of set goals but I too forget about them, occasionally decide to completely change them or else talk myself out of reaching for them! I like the idea of setting monthly goals since I tend to really do well following my bucket list each season… maybe I should start with seasonal goals. And CONGRATS!! on meeting your goal weight!

      Your bucket lists are amazing, and you get so much of them done! I’ve found that monthly works better for me than yearly and seasonally because I am awful at long term planning. One month is enough that I won’t feel like I’ve got all the time in the world, but it’s enough time to get things accomplished.

    I am so impressed with your goals. I have absolutely no goals at all but I think that is because of my migraine cycle etc…
    I need to get my shit together in January. For real. I turn 50 in April and I need to get inspired.
    You are a huge inspiration. 🙂

      Thanks girlie! It’s been a process, I honestly was total crap at goal setting and attaining until I started bullet journaling. It really turned everything around for me. Have you tried Imitrex for migraines? I just started it and it’s the first thing that has knocked them out without making me feel completely loopy or off the walls.
