Did anyone else wake up yesterday and wonder where there summer had gone??
One of the (many) things Elise does is a monthly goals list. As she explains in this post, the concept of having a few things to focus on every month makes goal setting much more practical and well... attainable. It's with that in mind that I want to set one goal a month for a few different areas of my life each month. They will be small things but things that will account for a much bigger whole. Also- knowing that I'm putting my goals out there makes me more accountable to you and to myself. Here we go.
- Publish at least one post every weekday.
I did it while I was taking classes and working twenty hours a week. There's absolutely no reason I shouldn't be able to do it now.
- Make and order a photo book.
I took pictures of my grandmother (i.e. Nana) and her friends at her 84th birthday party this past month. I want to edit and put together something awesome that she, and our family, can cherish. No pressure, right?
- Don't be afraid of the word "budget".
I am going to be taking a more active role in finances around the hacienda. Numbers, money, and finances are at the opposite end of the spectrum from my strong suite so any links, recommendations, and happy thoughts in this area of my life are appreciated.
Now it's your turn.
What are some of your goals for the month of August? Leave a comment OR (even better) leave a link to your blog post or face status telling me and the rest of the Approaching Joy community* what your goals are.
*I'm thinking about calling this group of people (you know, you guys who read this blog) the "Joyous Ones" or maybe the "Joy-sters". ("Joy-sters" sounds like oysters and has a decidedly New England feel, don't you think?) Any thoughts on naming the community (i.e. coming up with things even more ridiculous than my own attempts) would be appreciated as well.
