January 2023 Goals

At the beginning of the year I set my overall goals for 2023 and from there I decided on some goals for January 2023. The goals I set were:

  1. Plan blog content for the month
  2. Plan YouTube content for the month
  3. Complete assignments
  4. Complete habit tracker
  5. Complete 1 paint by numbers
  6. Complete 1 diamond painting
  7. Create monthly budget
  8. Read 2 books
  9. Lose 3.5kg
  10. Complete a virtual medal

How did I do?

Overall, it wasn’t a very successful month. Unfortunately the time seemed to just disappear away from me and I wasn’t as proactive as I should have been with organising my time. I also feel as though, upon reflection, I should have put some more thought into my goals.

I did plan my blog content for the month, created a monthly budget and completed a virtual medal (the next stage to my John O’Groats to Lands End). The rest unfortunately were not completed but I have learnt a lot from it and will be changing my approach going forward.

How can I improve my success next month?

I have spent a lot of time looking into time management techniques. It is something I have always related to work and not my personal life. I think what I have learnt is going to help manage the things I need to do around the house, my studying, working as well as ensuring I get some down time too. This is something that I have struggled to get right in the past.

I have also decided I need to reduce the number of goals I set for the month. I think I was trying to focus on too many different things which led to me struggling to decided which goals to prioritise. I also think that I need to be more specific with some of the goals I set. Furthermore when deciding my goals for the month I don’t necessarily need to do something to contribute to every overall goal for the year.
