I want to reframe the way I'm thinking about my monthly goals. I actually want to think more strategically about how to set myself up for success. And for me I think that means having realistic plans for realistic goals.
So, first. Let me take a look at what we have going on this month.
Our weekends are packed: wedding party and evening party (6th), yosemite trip (13-14th), dress shopping (20th), and rafting(27th-28th). We also have a couple of dinner dates planned with friends. On the 31st we're headed to New Orleans and then to visit my family. We're taking off three extra vacation days over the Labor day holiday, so we'll be very busy at work leading up to that.
In general work will be super busy this month. Super busy. Both Viet and I have tons going on at work.
So with all that said, I need to make some goals/resolutions that are actually obtainable:
Goal #1: For exercising, I'm just going to try to take this week by week and try to schedule my exercising for each week to come. This week I plan to exercise Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday morning. Right now I think on Tuesday I will go to Zumba. Thursday I'm going to go running. and Sunday i'll be dancing and strength training at home. I'll keep you posted on how this goes.
Goal #2: Blog Makeover!! This is my main goal this month. I've taken the awesome class, and now I need to do the hard work to transform the blog. I'm working on a New banner. new buttons. new categories. new graphics. and new blog series. GET Excited!
I want to have my new blog up and running by September 1st! eek. This is going to take a lot of work, so this is my main goal this month.
Goal #3: Instead of a list of the books i want to read in august–i'm making a goal to keep better track of the books i want to read (update my google reader) and to keep my kindle with me or a paperback at all times, so that when the time is there-i will read. I'm going to create some page/tool on the blog to keep track of all the books I'm reading and want to read.
Goal #4: tkd schools. still on the list. this is a scary goal for me, so I need to take baby steps. This month I'm just setting the goal to research the schools in SF and make a list of their pros and cons. I'm going to do this on Sunday, August 7th.
Goal #5: It's time to seriously get organized regarding the wedding. I want to make a wedding blog series and some sort of page/tool on the blog to keep you all updated on our wedding to-dos.
I'm going to be working to integrate/track many of these goals in different ways on the blog. The goal of my blog is to inspire myself to make things happen and that's exactly what I'm going to do.
Here's to August!!!
What are your goals for the month?
