{Monthly Series} November 2017 Goals

November 2017 goals marks the 11th installment of the monthly goal series I started back in 2013. I share goals that I wish to accomplish in the new month and strive to complete them. Personally I function best when I have a daily or monthly to-do list. Setting goals is a great way to plan out your life and its gives some sort of direction. I also have a strong belief that if I don’t succeed its ok to move it forward until I do.

November 2017 Goals


October 2017 GOALS

October started off very promisingly, I thought I would have time for relaxation and travel times. Traveling definitely happened both abroad and locally, see local adventures of where I have been of late. For abroad I was happy to spend a few days in Barcelona and took it in a stride.

Life always has a funny way of throwing curve balls but how we react to them matters. I choose to have a positive outlook on life and work hard to achieve that including goal setting. With that in mind, here is a review of last month’s goals and how I got on.

  • Submit postgraduate assignment – SUCCESSFUL, submitted the last assignment today.
  • Monitor my spending – SUCCESSFULwith was tough but done it.
  • Budget for travels –  SUCCESSFUL, limited my spending in Barcelona and on local adventures.
  • Enjoy my mini getaway – SUCCESSFULI did enjoy Barcelona very much
  • Spend time with family – Partial SUCCESS, spent time with my parents thought not my siblings.

I am so glad to have completed all my goals and excited to be working on the November 2017 goals. I believe in not over committing myself, I prefer to set short achievable goals.

November 2017 Goals

November has always been a busy month for everyone due to the upcoming festive period. I know it will be a super busy month but there are still goals I want to accomplish. Obviously most of them will be related to the festive period and will be helpful to me. Here are some of the October 2017 goals I am hoping to accomplish.
