As quickly as the school summer holidays came, they are once again almost over for another year. With the weather changing every day, we have had days where it has been hot and muggy, days that have been so wet it could have easily flooded. Along with days where the wind was so cold and bitter that I longed for my collection of Joules scarves.
The month of two halves (school days and schools out for summer) is finally over. If I’m honest it has been quite an overwhelming month. Finding myself questioning whether I am doing the right things, saying the right things and working as much as I should. Feeling as though my to-do list is growing without me managing to cross much off it.
Truth be told I’m in somewhat of a panic as I look forward to July. Knowing that the children finish this coming month for the summer and the reduction in time I will have for completing work throughout the day. I foresee some early mornings and late nights happening in order to get everything done.
Looking forward to the sixth month of the year I am reminded just how quickly the days, weeks and months are passing me by. As life in lockdown eases and life begins to pick up speed I’m conscious that I need to set monthly goals to help me maintain focus and on track. Hoping that I’ll be able to tick off some much-needed tasks from my to-do list.
There is a large part of my personality that prefers the busy, hectic days. The days where I’m not clock watching hoping that the clock hands would move a little quicker. Rather hoping that they would slow down a little to allow me to complete more things each day.
There should be a relatively big change happening in the Boo Roo and Tigger Too household in April. After being made redundant from the NHS back in 2016, I am making a return. Surprisingly to my former Trust so it will be interesting to see if things have changed over the years. With this milestone on the horizon, it’s even more important that I knuckle down and focus on my monthly goals.
It’s almost time to say farewell to 2020, the year I’m sure we’ll all remember for some time. Whilst it is easy to think about the negatives from the year, it is the positives, however big or small that maybe we should be focusing on. One of the reasons I opted to record my monthly goals throughout the year. Giving me something to focus on and a little kick up the backside too.
At the beginning of the year, I decided to start focusing on monthly goals. Sharing them on here as an opportunity to inspire you to set your own goals. As well as a way to make myself accountable for them.
As I approach November I an conscious of how busy it can be, something I am not taking into consideration when it comes to planning my monthly goals for the month.
Given that I have been procrastinating for most of the month it’s probably a good thing that I set relatively easy goals for the month. Focusing on three different areas of my life. Spreading the probability that I would at least focus on at least one of the areas.
