Last year I decided to make goals or intentions on a monthly basis. Mostly because I had trouble coming up with something I wanted to work on all year long.
This ended up being the best way for me to actually accomplish things I set out to do. When I made goals for the year, I found that some goals didn’t interest me or no longer applied to my life just a couple months into the new year.
But monthly goals and intentions let me reset where I’m going every thirty days. If certain goals continue to interest me, I can retool them and continue to work on them the next month. If other goals just aren’t doing it for me, then I can scratch them and move on.
Most of all, I want my monthly goals and intentions to be things I want to do because I think they will bring more happiness to my life. And because I think they will be fun. Not because I am trying to hack my life or create a perfect home/family/etc.
I plan to check in a couple times a month with how I’m doing and what’s been a meaningful goal and what I’ve tossed out. Are you taking on monthly goals or working on a couple things all year long?
