• January 2017 Monthly Goals 

    January 2017 Monthly Goals, I have complied a list of goals I want to accomplish this month. These goals are along side my 2017 yearly goals which I shared earlier today. I know many people are busy setting NEW-YEARs RESOLUTIONs, I am NOT one of them. Why? Because for me they never work, it’s hard enough remembering what I had for lunch. How am I expecting myself to remember what I supposedly should be doing during the year? Besides life is all kinds of unpredictable and fun but sometimes it can be unbearable hence my monthly goals. I truly believe setting monthly achievable goals is the best way forward.

    January 2017 monthly goals

    January 2017 Monthly Goals ~ Main

    • Buying a car 🚗
    • Getting Car Insurance
    • Declutter my home
    • Start saving for a mortgage

    There are three areas of my life that I want to focus on and want to set achievable goals for. These are Spiritual, Personal and Blogging life, it’s so easy to get carried away with life. One day you wake up and you don’t know who you’re or how you got to that point in your life. I want to re-focus and re-calibrate my life and set it on the right pathway.

    Spiritual Goals

    Though not really known by many, I am a Christmas but my faith has been lacking. Not that I don’t believe because I do, 2016 I found the mid-end part of the year hard to attend church.

    • Attend church regularly, mid-week will be a challenge but Sundays I should make all the effort
    • Put the Lord left/right and centre as my driver on this earthly journey
    • Participate in the Church more, I sign in the choir.

    Personal Goals

    For the last couple of years I have been in a trans of sorts. Somehow I was in a relationship that I wasn’t sure of the future or if it was still ongoing. I wasn’t sure if I was in a relationship with myself or I had a partner.

    • Make an effort to start dating again, I don’t know where to begin but will make an effort.
    • Be more social, I am a house bunny and I love that but want to be more social.

    Blogging Goals

    In a few months I will be celebrating 4 years of blogging and I hope this year the blog reaches new heights.

    • re-Build a new mailing list, I have over 8000 email subscribers but not sure how many are real.
    • Update the work with me page and revise my collaboration fees
    • Set Social media stats goals for 2017. 2016 I spent focusing on quality content and not building a following. 

    And there you have it, my January 2017 monthly goals; smart and achievable.

    Happy New Year!!

      I love that you set monthly goals. By having short-term goals, it is probably easier to assess your progress towards long-term goals.

      • January 14, 2017 / 9:00 pm

        Oh absolutely, it is so much easier that way than just having yearly goals alone

    2. January 9, 2017 / 11:13 pm

      I like goals, rather than resolutions. Oooh, you’ll have to keep us posted on the dating game. I am definitely out of that loop! Haha x

      • January 14, 2017 / 8:59 pm

        Hahahaha, I sure will. It’s been a while for me too so I am learning how to get back on the dating band wagon

      I totally agree. Short-term goals are more achievable than listing out various New Year resolutions. I have set 2 New Year resolutions to read more and have some “me time”. Good luck with your

        Thank you Esther I am loving your new year goals and hope you achieve them. Me time is so important and during that time you can read more books

      Great goals. I really need to make some personal goals too. I love making SMART goals and making sure I stay accountable. x

      I think goals are a great way forward, saving for a mortgage so important, but so difficult too! Good luck with them. I’ve done a family bucket list this year and I hope we are going to have a lot of fun ticking things off.

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:43 am

        Thanks Jenni, I am definitely prepared for the difficulty of saving for the mortgage but definitely will give it a try.
        Good luck with your family bucketlist too

      I’ve always said I wasn’t going to jump in the resolution bandwagon like I used to but this post is making me think twice. It’s always nice to have a goal. I love that you’ve categorized them. 🙂

        Thanks Jena, it’s important for me to have monthly achievable or aimable goals thank year long resolutions

    7. January 3, 2017 / 10:45 pm

      I think goals are better than resolutions as they tend to be more realistic. Good luck getting your new car and saving for your mortgage x

    11. January 3, 2017 / 8:02 pm

      I agree! I find that monthly goals are far more effective and if you fall of the bandwagon it does not matter you can try again!

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:38 am

        Exactly that’s my motto if you fail try again until you accomplish it or try a new tactic

      I love the idea of monthly goals! I stopped having New Year Resolutions, because I also can not remember what I had for lunch! 😉 Those are great goals you have set! I wish you luck on your milestones.

      • January 7, 2017 / 9:37 am

        Thank you Wren, it’s easy to put resolutions for the year down much harder to follow through hence why I just do Monthly Goals

      Goals are so much better than resolutions and they’re more motivating as well. I hope you accomplish all your goals for this coming year! Best of luck and don’t forget to have fun!

      I think your goals are great. January is a great month for motivation so it’s a good month for forming new habits as well.
