Hey love, it’s the end of the month, I’m pretty excited for the new month. This month went by in a flash and here we are at the end of the month already. At the beginning of the month, I published a post on what are your goals for the month?. I shared my goals for the month and I want to share the review of the goals. If you have any difficulty in setting goals, check out my post on how to set goals and achieve them.
I believe we all set goals for the month or a to do list of things we wanted to accomplish by the month and since it’s the last day of the month it’s a good time to review them and prepare for the next month.
Reviewing your goals can be very helpful, it allows you to measure the success of your goals, the things you were able to accomplish and the things you were not able to.
10 SIMPLE TIPS ON HOW TO REVIEW YOUR GOALS
1. REFLECT ON THEM
Take a look at the goals you set and look at everything that led up to you setting them, working towards them and achieving them.
2. ASSESS THE GOALS
Take a look at your goals and assess what you accomplished and what you didn’t. For the ones you accomplished, how did you accomplish them, what did you have to do and for the ones you didn’t accomplish, assess why you didn’t accomplish them.
3. LIST EVERYTHING IMPORTANT THAT HAPPENED DURING THE MONTH
We all have things going on in our lives, make a list of things that happened during the month that affected your goals. It could be your change in mindset, your productivity, your health and so on. List out the things that happened in the month that you were grateful for or excited about and how it affected you to work towards your goals.
4. WRITE DOWN YOUR TOP THREE ACHIEVEMENTS
We all have different goals for every areas of our lives. Write down your top three achievements under those areas. What were the top three things you achieved in the month that you are most proud of?
5. MEASURE YOUR GOAL PROGRESS
Track your goals of the previous month and compare it with your accomplishments of this month. How much more did you do, how much did you grow, what were the areas you saw an increase in?
6. UPDATE YOUR GOALS
Look at the areas you still want to develop in, update them, add to your goals, add make them better.
7. REVIEW YOUR ACTION PLAN
Take a look at the things that worked for you and the things that didn’t. Look out for ways to improve on them. Look at the mistakes you made and how to avoid them. What is the one thing you could do to improve your productivity, what is the mistake you can avoid next time?
8. LET GO OF SOME GOALS
Let go of some goals if you have to. It could be that the time frame you’ve set for it is too short or you’ve tried everything you can and it doesn’t look like you’ll be achieving it or you are doing much than you can handle. It’s okay to let go of them, you can go back to them later but in the meantime focus on the ones that are very important to you.
9. GO OVER PENDING PROJECTS
Take a look at what you couldn’t accomplish in this month and add it to your goals for the next. What are the things you couldn’t complete and how do you plan on completing them? Finish your unfinished business.
10. GO OVER YOUR NEXT PROJECTS
After reviewing your goals for the month, go over the goals for the next month. Set your goals the right way. Have an action plan, set goals that are A.B.C and SMART and if you don’t know about these terms click on the link above.
Reviewing your goals are very good and you should try doing it once in a while. You could do it daily, weekly, monthly or yearly. It helps you see where you are at and pushes you to do more. You will be able to see how much you’ve accomplished, what you are yet to do, let go of the ones that are not forthcoming and add an update where necessary.
A REVIEW OF MY MONTHLY GOALS
So in the beginning of the month, I wrote a list of things that I wanted to accomplish, you can check out my goals for the month. Most of my goals were centered on growing my social media pages, my Instagram and twitter to be precise. I’m glad that I was able to achieve most of the things I wanted to despite how the month was.
In my last post I mentioned that I had an assignment of 6,000 words that I wasn’t happy about but I still had to do so that took most of my time in researching, writing and actually typing it. The stress was just too much and then the worst thing happened, two days to the deadline for submission, before I could submit it, the whole thing wiped out. Damn, I was so sad that day and really frustrated because I had to start again but I’m so glad that I was able to meet up to the deadline, complete it again and submit it successfully. I feel so free right now. So I’m apologizing for not posting last week, I had a lot going on. But despite all that this month was really amazing and has been like my best month so far since the outbreak of the pandemic. I don’t know maybe it was because I set goals for the month and was excited about accomplishing them or maybe it’s because of what happened during the month.
Having a goal and a deadline for accomplishing them can help put a bit of pressure on you which could either make you or break you. Despite everything, I managed to grow my Instagram followers from 560 followers to 1030 and my Twitter from 900 to 2300. I also made progress with my Pinterest too and I was able to get clicks and views from it.
So don’t forget to keep track of your progress by
reviewing your goals and reward yourself for it at the end.
