It’s that time of the month again! Each month I write down a combination of tasks, activities and goals I want to complete by the end of that month. Writing and keeping running to do lists seems to help me stay on track and organized!
I reflect back on the previous month to see what I managed to complete and didn’t get around to. I’ll be sharing what I accomplished in February and mention my goals for March!
It’s easy to become so focused on getting everything done that you might forget to take care of the person carrying out all those “to-dos”. I talk a lot about self care here on True Bliss as it plays a crucial part in your well being.
I consider myself to be a very organized person. I continuously use a planner and often have to do lists lying around the house. I love setting myself goals, whether they’re big or small as it gives me something to work on.
I’ve decided that once a month I will share some of my ‘to do’ items, tasks or goals I want to achieve. Then when the next month rolls around I will reflect back on what I managed to complete. I know that we are a few weeks into October already but I wanted to get this series started!
October To Do List
Volunteer at least 4 times- As some of you may already know, I volunteer in a kindergarten classroom to gain experience to use when I go back to school in January. Although, I do have a part time job and other running around to do throughout the week so finding time can sometimes be difficult. This month I would like to try to volunteer 5 times.
Finish a Book- I had a goal of reading 15 books this year and although I have already surpassed that goal, my reading time has been put on the back burner due to life’s business. This month I’d like to find time during each night before bed to finish a book. I have also joined an online book club with some of my blogging friends as a fun way to read. Check out my Book Challenge 2017.
Start my Christmas Planning- Some of you probably think I’m crazy that I am already beginning to think about Christmas. But truth is, I have already started my Christmas shopping! Hahaha! Every year I plan out who I have to buy for, budget and gather some ideas for each person. It makes my shopping trips much easier when I have an idea/plan ahead of me.
Setting Aside Time for my Planner- As mentioned above, I use my planner daily. It tells me what I have planned for the day, when I work/volunteer, things to get done and things to buy. Lately I have been slacking when it comes to keeping my planner up to date, so it’s time to get back on track!
Let me know what you have planned for the rest of October!
