{Monthly Series} September 2018 Goals

September 2018 goals are part of the monthly goal series where I document my plans for the month. Each month is different in terms of the goals that I set and September is no different. As a planner by nature, it’s normal for me to set goals and I love to-do lists.

September 2018 Goals

Every month I start it with a set of clear and smart goals in order to be productive. Last month I shared some tips on how one can be productive in life. Of late, I have been putting the tips I shared to use and glad to same they helped me to be more products. I will set it didn’t work always but the tips definitely helped on most days.

Recap of August 2018 Goals

As is normal practice here, I am a great believer in recapping previous plans as that’s the only way to progress. Whenever I set goals, I always make sure I allocate some time to review them throughout the month. Then before I set the next goals, I take a moment to review my progress. With that in mind, here are the previous month goals;

  • August Travels – book hotels and plan some day trips for; Zagreb,
  • Ljubljana, Newquay and Cologne. COMPLETED
  • Schedule in personal time. FAILED
  • Start saving again for a mortgage. FAILED
  • Find ways to overcome the summer slump PARTIAL
  • Creating a new blogging schedule. FAILED
  • Schedule more content throughout the month. FAILED

As you can see I did pretty poorly in August but this doesn’t bring my spirits down. I am a strong believer that once beaten twice shy and if you don’t succeed at first, try again. With that in mind, I will be trying again in September but maybe with a new strategy.

Whenever September begins, I always think of it as another new start to the year, an academic year. As the leaves start to change colour, kids are back to school and the weather gets cooler. Putting all of these aside, here are the September 2018 Goals.

  • Schedule in personal time.
  • Start saving again for a mortgage. 
  • Find ways to overcome the blogging slump 
  • Creating a new blogging schedule. 
  • Schedule more content throughout the month. 

Looking through all my September goals for the last couple years, I seem to want rest. This month is no different, I do want to schedule in some alone time but also be more productive.

    Good luck with your goals – it’s always a great idea to keep yourself accountable. 🙂

    That’s a lot of big time related goals. I always find August difficult with it being the holidays and there are lots of people around to do nice things with, but it eats into your time! Good luck with your goals in September

    Good luck with your goals for this month. And definitely work in some down time, its so easy to neglect but makes such a difference. I didn’t do too well with my goals for August, I’m blaming the weather though. We’ve dropped everything to make the most of the lovely sunny weather.

    I really like the honesty in this post. Goal setting is important, and I need to do more myself 🙂 x

    I love that you set yourself small achievable goals. For mortgage saving, have you tried an app like Chip? It takes small amounts from your current account each week and puts it in a savings account and it’s so small you don’t even realise it happens. It won’t be big chunks of savings for a mortgage but it’s a nice start!
