Hey loves, it’s the end of the month already. This month went by fast just like the way the year is. You need to still be productive irrespective of what’s going on. So continue reading to find out the productive things you should do at the end of each month to have a more productive month after.

Review Your Goals

The first thing you want to do is to sit with your goals, reflect on them, review them. Take a good look at what you’ve been able to accomplish and go through them. Assess and review your goals. I made a post on that, be sure to check it out because it’s really important and informative .

Make A List Of Unfinished Work

If you didn’t get to accomplish all your goals for the month, don’t fret. Make a list of all the things you couldn’t get done. Found out why you didn’t get them done, were you stressed out, were you lacking motivation, were you overwhelmed with work? Know why you couldn’t complete the tasks and figure out a way to work on them. Again my post on how to review your goals talks about this.

Set New Goals

It’s another month, what do you want to get done in the new month? What are the other goals you are hoping to accomplish? Set new goals and come up with action plans for them. If you don’t know how to set goals or how to go about it. Check these out:

How To Set Goals And Achieve Them

10 questions to ask yourself when setting your goals

Think Of A Positive Habit You Want To Establish

You know a negative habit that you have. Why don’t you take this new month to work on them. Change your negative habits to positive ones one habit at a time. If you notice that you procrastinate a lot, focus on being consistent. If you think negative thoughts or have negative self talks turn them into positive thoughts and affirmations. Change your eating habits, always staying up late to chat or watch TV especially when it’s not adding any impact on your life, change your sleeping habits. Change that negative habit that you have and channel them to positive ones. Instead of staying up late at night sacrificing your sleep actually sleep and if you don’t want to, do something productive instead, get some work done. Consciously work on fixing a negative habit you have in the next month.

Look For Ways To Improve Yourself

No one is perfect, we are all lacking in something. No one knows it all. Strive to be better and do better in the next month. Invest in yourself, learn a skill, take a course, read a book, attend webinars etc. Continuously strive to be better and improve your relationship with others be it your workers, family, friends, partners and others. Work on your mindset, change your perspective and take deliberate actions to work on yourself.

Have A Deep Interaction With Yourself

Look within yourself and ask yourself some deep questions. The life you are living right now is that what you want, are you doing things that can get you there? What are your future plans, what can you do to get yourself to where you have to be?

Ask yourself these questions or any that comes to your mind and sit down, take a book and pen to answer your questions. You might just find the answer you want by looking within and you will definitely have a clearer picture of the things you need to do.

Rate All The Areas Of Your Life

Take a pen and paper and rate yourself. Rate the various areas of your life, it could be over ten or over hundred depending on your choice but be honest with yourself for the answers. What’s your spiritual life like, what will you rate your relationship with your partner, family or friends, what will you rate your finances, your health , your academics? Be completely honest with yourself and don’t be ashamed if the score is not good just know that the area needs to be worked on. Doing this will definitely make you better in the next month.

Reflect On Your Spending

Hold yourself accountable. Know how you spend your money. You want to reflect on your spending to see if you have the right spending habits, to know what you use your money to do. Reflecting on your spendings can help you save more when you know the areas you need to work on so definitely reflect on your spendings from time to time so you will know the habits to cut down.

Count Your Blessings

Be grateful for the opportunity to see the end of the month and the start of another, people lost their lives before the month ended but you are still alive. One thing I’m always grateful for is the gift of life, no matter what I’m going through I believe that as long as there is life, there is hope. So be thankful for life, be thankful for the opportunities you got in the month, whether it’s the new job or the sales of your product, be thankful, count your blessings, it will surprise you what the Lord has done.

I have a lot of things to be grateful for this month, the mere fact that I could accomplish my goal makes me thankful and the opportunities that came with this month too.

You should also list your accomplishments. You might be feeling like you didn’t get any work done or nothing spectacular happened this month but if you think deep something probably did. It might be surviving a sickness or accident or even paying your bills or getting to meet some people so always be thankful.

Reward Yourself

Get something you want and need. I believe in setting reward systems for a job well done even if it is for the smallest tasks. Buy that dress, try out that new restaurant, take a vacation somewhere, go out with friends, take a break, buy that thing that you’ve been saying you will buy. Reward yourself with your heart desires, you deserve it.

So there you have it, ten productive things to do at the end of the month to start the next month right.

    1. That’s lovely ❤️
      Thanks for reading.

  12. These are great suggestions. I really the like the idea of looking at what you didn’t get done and why. Thank you!

    1. Thanks 😊
      It’s really important to know why you didn’t accomplish a certain goal.

  13. Great post! It’s super important to reflect on the month, analyze what worked and what didn’t, and formulate a plan with new goals for the next month!

    1. Yes it’s super important. 💯

  14. Great suggestions! A lot of people set big, lofty goals only to forget to follow up on them later. The only way to find out if you are moving forward is to take a step back, reflect on your progress, and reassess the path that you’re traveling. They often overlooked secret of success.

    1. Yes, it’s so easy to set goals but most of the time we don’t like putting the work or going back to review our progress or setbacks and indeed they are the secrets of success. Thanks for reading. 💯

  15. These are great points! This October I’m definitely looking to cut my spending a lot and reviewing it is a good place to start

    1. You’re welcome. Thanks for reading, I’m glad that you came across it. Good luck with your goals. 💪

  17. This is such an ideal list. I wish I could remember to do them all though. I think I do but like unconsciously. Might just save this post as a guide to do so consciously.
    Love these amazing points 💚

    1. Thanks. You should definitely save it so you can make reference to it later and try following through with them.

      1. For sure for sure. Already saved!
        Reference, check.

  18. Hi Nianni. Some worthy suggestions in that list. I think that “Count Your Blessings” is particularly important – most of us have so much to be thankful for but we rarely give it a second thought. Evaluate what you have (including immaterial things like friendships) and be grateful – it’ll make you far happier than envying what somebody else has!

    1. Definitely, being grateful for what you have gets you more and makes you less envious of another.

  19. I love this idea of doing a check in at the end of the month! I keep a to-do list each day but would love to do a bigger check in at the end of the month. Especially love the idea of cultivating a new habit.

    1. It’s lovely that you do that and it’s always good to cultivate a good habit. 💯

  20. Having a start/end of month review is so important! I keep a Bullet Journal, so each month needs to be drawn up and I reflect on what I need to focus on for the coming month and transfer across anything unfinished. Aside from my bullet journal, I also do a financial summary each month which (as an excel nerd) I find really satisfying! I hope your prep for October has gone well and you have a great month!

    1. It’s lovely that you keep a bullet journal and reflect on your goals and the unfinished tasks and also review your finances. That’s a really good one. Happy New Month, have a great month as well. ♥️

  21. Such a great post! I need to adopt some of these habits. I always make sure I know how my goals are going and track my finances but I really need to adopting some of these x x

    1. Thanks. You should definitely adopt new habits this month and it’s good that you track your goals and finances.

  22. These are great point but at the same time I feel a prick of guilt because I never even realize that a month has changed, haha. Reviewing one’s goals and setting new ones is such an important step though, but I wonder if I’ll ever be so ‘grounded’ that I’d know what day, month, or season it is ;D

    1. Lol, I feel that way too sometimes and I’m like “wow, it’s another week already!”. Reviewing your goals and setting new ones us a really important step. 💯

  23. Will definitely be looking back at the goals I set for last month and make new goals from there.🙂 I think I’ll start to check my expenses at the end of the month to see how I am doing with my finances since I want to achieve financial freedom.

    1. That’s awesome. You should do just that. Wish you best of luck. 🤗

  24. I have been feeling a little bummed the last few days. I’ll try some of these suggestions to get back on track. It would be really nice if it wasn’t so dark and rainy too. I miss going outside.

    1. You should definitely try them. I miss going outside too, the rain here too is pretty consistent.

  25. Its so refreshing to know I’m not the only one that does this

    1. Yeah. It’s good to know that you do these things. 💯

    1. Thanks, thanks for reading. ♥️

  28. Good points! I will refer to this at the end of each month! Thanks for sharing!

    1. You should. Thanks for reading. 💯

    1. That’s lovely. It’s good that you do these things. Thanks for reading. 💯🤗

  35. Counting my blessings is something I need to do. Sometimes I really don’t think about how good things are for me and my family. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks for reading.
      You should count your blessings more and learn to appreciate the little things down to just spending time with your family. 💯

  36. I definitely think it’s important to reflect so that we can improve and be better and aim towards our goals. I really want to work on my spending habits this month – this pandemic is making me online shop so much more whoops.


    1. Yes, I think it’s important to reflect on your goals as well. You should definitely work on your spending and plan your budget. 💯

  37. Sometimes we forget to remind ourselves of our blessings and to reward our hard work, I need to work on this myself. Wonderful post!

    1. Yes we do and we really need to work on it so it’s good that you are going to. Thanks for reading. 🤗

  38. What a great post! Rating areas of your life is an interesting concept that I think I will do!

    1. Thanks. You should. 💯

  39. May we always remember to reward ourselves

    1. Exactly, we need to spoil ourselves sometimes. 😄

  40. Great suggestions, I will write them down as a reminder for me to keep doing them. Thank you for shaeing!

  41. As a total workaholic, I find it hard to focus on goals outside of my job (or jobs, I suppose, since I have like 5 of them). I really want to begin putting personal goals into practice so I can review them at the end of the month. Financial reviews are also really important and my husband and I do that at the end of every month. In fact, today, one of my tasks is to update our spreadsheet so we can discuss it all tonight! Thanks for the reminder 😉

    1. You’re welcome. Glad you found the tips helpful 💕
