I’ve struggled with 2014 planning, and I’m still in the process. There’s something about setting small, measurable goals on a monthly basis that’s less intimidating and really productive.
When I make thoughtful goals for the month, it helps me focus on what I think is most important right now. It gives me the freedom to change and shift my plans, to be more prayerful and less pressured. I certainly can’t do everything right now, but I can decide what matters and prioritize accordingly.
Here are my goals this month:
- Submit two guest posts
- Outline which projects I plan to work on each quarter (with room for change, of course!)
- Choose my one word that will be my theme for the year
- Send thank you letters to people who touched my life in a special way in 2013
- Learn to use my Day Designer effectively
This practice of writing goals publicly has been daunting and encouraging for me. What are your goals this month?
