2015 Monthly Goals Linky

2015 monthly goalsI am sure you’re have seen a lot of blog/personal goals by now and I am actually quite happy to see all the goals being set. As some of you may know I am ANTI-RESOLUTION, it seems every time I set New Year Resolutions I set myself up for failure which I hate. I know we learn from our failures (at least some of us) but these are some that I was not gonna repeat so in 2013 I made a decision to stop setting resolutions and just set Monthly goals. It seems I hit a jacket pot because ever since I started I have done almost 90% of the goals I set and I think the success is because my goals have been focused and measurable which is very important when setting goals. I have also realised that since I plan what goals I want to accomplish that month it helps me stay focused and hold myself accountable.

GOALS

 

This year! though my goals will be monthly and I will continue to do them, I want to do them a little bit differently. Firstly, as I shared on my Instagram a couple days ago I have set my FIVE goals which I will be checking on every month and I also want to include a link-up for these goals and want to invite all of you to link up your goals whether weekly, monthly, quarterly or yearly. 

The rules for the link-up are simple, link up max 2 goal posts. I will share them all on twitter and facebook.

2015 Monthly Goals: Main goals

  • January – Naturalisation, so I have decided to give up my Zambian citizenship to become British. Zambia does not do duo citizenship hence the need to surrender my Zambianess, and to do that need to apply and pay a whopping £904. February will be a no spend month because of this.
  • February – Car lessons, I can drive (confidently enough) but need few more lessons as well as re-do my theory test since my certificate expired last year April
  • March – July, Book 3 holidays abroad. If January application comes back before March I will throw in a couple of weekends to Europe.
  • August – October, Save up for my house. I need to rent or buy my own place soon so fingers crossed I can get on the property ladder soon
  • November – December, Get a car. Though I will be doing my lessons from February I want to be slowly saving up for a decent car that can take me from point A to point B

These are some on my 2015 Monthly Goals, what are yours? Do you set goals and do you have a preference frequency?

    Good luck on your goals. Homeownership is awesome and having a car is a must. I look forward to following along as you reach your goals.

    Good luck on all of your monthly goals. I am sure that you will reach them all.

    Monthly goals do sound a lot more doable and productive than have a resolution. I really like this idea, and it’s not too late to start for 2015. I might have to sit down and think about this more.

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:46 am

      It’s never too late to start setting monthly goals, good luck hun x

    I’ve got my fingers crossed that you make it to Europe. (Personally, I would prefer to go to Zambia!)

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:46 am

      Hahaha thank you hun, I need to do a few European trips and Zambia is a must

    I think this is the first I have heard about this, monthly goals. They seem more realistic and more reasonable to me.

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:45 am

      They really are more achievable than yearly ones

  8. January 8, 2015 / 4:33 am

    Whoo, those are some great goals! I like how you’re thinking long-term strategically. 🙂 And I love the resolution to book Europe vacations! Paris, Florence, and Venice are some of my top recs.. 🙂

    I just have central goal for 2015, which is to master everything video-related.. with the end of of solely creating a multi-media project on my own, from the visuals, to the video, to the music composition and performance, to the spoken/written narrative, to the production… Fingers crossed!

    Wow you’ve thought this out. I don’t know what I’m doing tomorrow let alone the rest of the year. Good for you for being mindful!

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:43 am

      Hahaha, I had to put this in motion otherwise I was not going to get anything done, I am done with fear so I am going for it

  10. January 8, 2015 / 3:22 am

    These are great how you broke the goals into months, that makes things easier.. I linked up with my goals I posted last week.

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:42 am

  12. January 8, 2015 / 2:08 am

    That is great to set goals and monthly goals are really great. I have a couple of goals I want to work on this year. You have really great goals for this year.

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:42 am

      Thank you Bonnie, monthly goals i feel are more achievable than yearly

  13. January 8, 2015 / 1:12 am

    I love that you have specific goals with specific months. I may have to go back through my goals and do something similar. Good luck with each of them!

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:41 am

    Great goals and I like how you put them in month’s instead of days. I love the quote and I’m saving this to focus on the thing’s, I need to do in my home as well.

    • January 7, 2015 / 8:12 pm

      Thank you Meeks 🙂

    That’s a quote that gets you thinking. In many ways, I find it definitely to be true.

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:40 am

      Absolutely does

    I haven’t done resolutions is years. I keep seeing a lot of folks doing the one word this year and mine seems to be falling towards Wellness. But, I have not sat down and wrote out any goals for this year and I really need to.

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:40 am

      I too have seen the one word goals and not sure i can stick to it but if i was to choose one i would choose JOY

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:38 am

      Thank you hun, I hope this is the year i get one

  26. January 6, 2015 / 11:36 pm

    Great goals! I need to sit down and write out some for myself. I always forget to until I see a great post like this!

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:38 am

      hahahaha hope you manage to write some this time

    I think it makes so much more sense to make monthly goals rather than a big yearly proclamation. Those never work out.

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:37 am

      They never do atleast for me they never do

  28. Robin Rue
    January 6, 2015 / 10:03 pm

    I think it’s smart to do them monthly! That way you won;t get overwhelmed at all when trying to get them done.

    • January 14, 2015 / 8:37 am

      Thank you that was my thinking too
