Tomorrow is the start of June, a fresh month and a new chance to set more goals.
The start of the month is always a brilliant time to refresh what you want to achieve, where you’re heading and reflect on the previous month.
“Experts” say that 90 days is an optimum time to set a target or a goal because it’s not too short and unrealistic but also not too long and putting you at a risk of losing momentum.
Tomorrow I want you to sit down and work out your goals for the next 90 days. Personally, I prefer to set 3 goals for each area of my life – Personal, Home, Work, Hobbies and Development.
I find it much easier to decide on an outcome and then set goals surrounding the outcome – so if I want to lose weight, my personal goals will be working to that big outcome. The more specific the goal, the better, “lose weight” is really broad and isn’t teneable.
I make sure each of the goals vary in degrees of intesity, push myself, but are also attainable. By doing this, I know that each month I’ll have acheived something and in some cases developed habits – even if I don’t complete them all.
Here’s an example of monthly goals you could set:
- Exercise twice a week
- Only order one takeout in the month
- Eat 5 portions of fruit and veg a day
- Fix the wobbly hinge on the cupboard door
- Repaint the spare room
- Dig out the new border
- Sew in the ends of my crochet project
- Cut out the pattern for my dress
- Piece together the patchwork quilt
- Finish the last chapter of my book
- Listen to 2 podcasts
- Meditate daily
- Gain one new client
- Write 5 blogs
- Film 3 promotional videos
Again, these are all examples of things you could set to achieve, and it doesn’t have to be in each category, or 3 goals or any of the things I’ve listed. The beauty of goal setting is it’s completely up to you and personalised to whatever you want to achieve.
