I’m someone who functions better with planning. That’s why you see weekly menu planning as well as monthly goals planning on the blog. Monthly goal/task planning helps me keep track of things I need to complete that specific month.
Some goals in the monthly goal planning are quick simple and repetitive every month while others are one time goals that I need to complete that specific month. Until last month, I shared way too many goals under each section.
Starting this month, I’m planning to share with you one specific goal under each category. If you’re like me who functions better with lists or you want to achieve some tasks, yet keep postponing it, I highly recommend monthly goal planning.
Here are this month’s goals (1 goal under each category):
As mentioned in this week’s menu planning, I’m using my leftover vacation for this year and going on maternity leave starting Tuesday and I’m planning to spend all my time around Chuttu until the baby comes. This pregnancy has been such a journey and I really miss Chuttu. I also have this constant fear on how he will react once our Baby #2 is here. I really want him to enjoy this new phase in our life rather than thinking that he is not getting full attention.
So, the goal is to take him out and do activities every single day until Baby #2 comes.
Continue to relax and spend some quality time with parents. It’s been crazy busy over here that I hardly spend any time with parents even though we are in the same house. I’m either working, cooking, or with Chuttu and by the time I’m done for the day, parents are already asleep.
I want to use this free time to spend some quality time with parents as well as take them out during the weekdays.
Can you believe we are still debating on the baby name? I really hope to get it done before Baby #2 is here.
For the past few years, we do yearly planning every December. It’s primarily focused on finance, how much we spent that year, and how we want to proceed the next year. It’s no way perfect, yet something we can go back and review when there is a need.
So, this month financial goal is to plan for 2017.
Let me know if you have any questions around goals and planning.
