Setting Goals & Getting Organized!

It was perfect timing when I discovered this great motivational group at K.T. Hanna’s website .  Here’s how K.T. describes the experience::

Apart from the general cheering we do on a daily basis, a Goal-Check Month is where you set goals for yourself and hold yourself accountable to them. You let us know what those goals are, and report during the month on how you think you’re going with them. This helps hold yourself accountable.

The aim here isn’t to compete with each other – it’s to compete against ourselves (and that pesky inner-critic and procrastination demon that try to defeat us when we least want them to).

To that end we try to add a little incentive every month. This time around – we’re going to add buttons again. Shiny, colourful, cookie buttons – with a collect them all sort of vibe ;) July was a lovely blue – September will be a nice shiny new colour!
Though these goal-check months have rules – don’t worry – they’re completely doable.

The Rules:

Make a list of realistic goals for the month – and achieve them.

Make a Blog Post every week (preferably Monday, but if you don’t post on Mondays just add it to the next day you would normally post . This is to help us keep tabs on our own progress, and for others to cheer us on if it’s a difficult week.

These are my goals for the month:
