2015 Monthly Goals {November}

monthly goals

Hi there and welcome to November! I can not seriously believe how fast time has been moving over the last 10 months, can you believe that we are already in the eleventh month of the year? 2015 has been a truly great and blessed year for me hands down. It has definitely made up for how crappy 2014 was for me, I am forever thankful and grateful for everything that has happened in my life thus far. I can not wait to see what 2016 looks like for me personally, private life and work.

As most of my everyday readers will have noticed I only blogged twice in October and about 10 posts in September, I have to confess that blogging has been taking such a big seat back because I just wanted to slow down and enjoy everything I have and work I have been working towards. I hope November will be a little different and I hope to blog every day (no promises).

Another month has come upon us when we need to look over the previous goals and plan some goals for the future. The biggest goals for me this month is to deliver my nephews presents that I got from the new york and new jersey before his 3rd birthday which is in a couple of days from now. I can not believe he will be three already, looking at him now he looks 5 because of his height even his clothes are about 2 sizes up.

Last month I shared the following goals and now will shall take a look at what I managed to accomplish and what I will be moving forward.

OCTOBER GOALS 

  • Read 4 books – I have not read a book since March, I have been slacking big time. I absolutely love reading but put this on a back burner for far too long. FAILED – not touched a single book
  • Mini vacation – I need another mini vacation to just be somewhere and do something new again. PASSED – went to NYC for work and stayed 4 days longer for some me time
  • Blogging schedule – I need to get my blogging schedule backup and running. FAILED – blogged twice and that’s it.
  • Reviews – finish off all reviews before accepting new ones. FAILED – started but didn’t complete any due to busy work schedule
  • Socialise more – I love spending time at home more than I love going out because all my friends live so far but I need to make this conscience change to get out more even alone. PASSED – met some work colleagues for the first time and spent lots of time with new friends.

October was not a very products month for me blog-wise but I hope to do better in November.

NOVEMBER GOALS

  • Blog daily in November – I wanted to join the blog everyday challenge but thought best I do my own thing but still in the same spirit.
  • Blog schedule – This time last year I had nailed and perfected the art of blog scheduling but now I do not think I could tell my elbow from my feet. I plan to work on this every weekend.
  • Review all products received – Over the last couple of months has received so many products which I have still not had a chance to review so I plan to do that soon.
  • Read more – August, September and October I set myself goals to read about 4 books and blog about them but I have failed each time so this time I will just read what I can when I can and if I blog about it great.
  • Buy christmas cards – I know christmas is not too far off so I need to get cards for all the people I need to send to.
  • Socialise more – I am putting this one again because my social skills are disappearing because I spent so much time watching korea shows, dramas and music that I don’t have time for anything else. This needs to change.
  • Buy christmas decorations – This is my first apartment, my own place to decorate as I please. I am so excited I can not wait.

These are all my goals for November, there some more personal goals that I am setting for myself which will be shared in good time.

Do you set goals for yourself? How did you do last week or month?

    Oh I love this post! I so need some more motivation in life and I think I may do something similar each month to try and do that. Thanks for the inspiration xxx

    I can’t believe it’s November either! It’s gone so quickly! I swear every month I tell myself I’m gonna read more books, but I hardly ever do 🙁 I just don’t have time. I really do need to make time as I miss reading so much.

    I totally failed my reading goal as well, I only managed 2 books and wanted to do at least 4 x

    Love this idea to publicly set and record your goals. Shame you didn’t get any books read, but don’t give up on the idea x

    I keep thinking I should set goals. I just try to keep on top of everything, but it doesn’t always work.

    I really should set myself goals like this, however I fear I won’t complete them! Maybe if I start with a couple it won’t be so difficult! I hope you had fun in NYC, it’s my favourite place xx

    Love your monthly goals mine are the following: to re-design my blog, delete some posts on Instagram and my blog, to post four times a week for both my blog and Facebook and many more. It is important to plan ahead.

    Oh I need to do all those things on your November goals list, too! Especially the schedule blog posts! Setting goals really inspires me to try harder and achieve them! Although I had rather a lot of fails on my last goal list. I’ll do better this month 🙂 We can do it! 😀 xx

    Blogging for me has taken a back seat for me with college tossing assignments at me like there’s no tomorrow. I would love to have set goals to achieve but every time I plan them, it all falls apart.

    Hi Miranda, I am so glad to see your ‘To Do List’ for November. I do agree with you that Time flies like air…My resolution for this month is I have to be committed to my blogging at least four days a week. : )
