October Goals ~ Blogging & Personal

October Goals ~ Blogging & Personal

So we’ve reached October. What a year 2017 has been! I have been doing a lot of reflecting lately and I must say that this year was full of trying and testing times, but thankfully, I’m still here. Things are moseying along and life is good enough. Things (and our goals) can always be better but it can also be so so much worse.

But enough of all of that stuff. I’m shifting from monthly goals to quarterly goals as I find it gives me more time to actually plan properly and achieve what I set out to do. Time truly waits for no man. Not at this speed anyways. Here are my goals for the rest of the year and what I hope to accomplish for my blog and I. My September goals are here if you fancy a look back πŸ™‚

END OF YEAR GOALS

  • Double my social media following by the end of 2017. I set a goal at the beginning of July to triple my following by the end of that quarter, and I did! I am experiencing pure exuberance at the moment because finding your footing around the interwebs is HARD! But not impossible. I am grateful.
  • Write more, take more pictures and just roll with the flow. I need to stop being so uptight and all perfectionist like with the blog. It’s suppose to be a place of happiness and exhilaration, not stress and anxiety.
  • Eat healthier and exercise. Forever on my list. And more than likely, forever will be.
  • No excess spending for Christmas and the holidays. I can get pretty carried away.
  • Stop comparing my success to others.
  • Read the four books that I got recently. Especially this one. I sense only good things can come from it.
  • and finally, just appreciate my life for what it is, but still keep my eye on my on the prize.

And that’s it for now. Sweet and simple. Just like how I wish life would be. Lol.

 

What have you planned for the rest of the year? Anything out of the ordinary?

…thanks for stopping by!

    I have a course I want to ace . That’s about it for now . Lol . My brain is pretty tired . So trying not to push myself so hard before I burnout . Christmas always brings out the spending monster doesn’t it . Is that just a Caribbean thing ?

  5. I’ve recently put some October goals together myself. It’s a great way to motivate yourself to get things done. I actually wanted to take more photos last month and I knocked that goal out of the park, this month I’m aiming to get back in to the swing of enjoying blogging after a small break/rut. Congratulations on your Instagram growth! That’s an amazing increase! All the best in expanding further. Here’s to a successful end to 2017!

    This looks like an inspiration and motivational list of goals! Eating health and exercising more is pretty much on my goal list every month, so you’re not alone there. I’m putting forward a serious effort to increase my traffic and posting on the blog, but after seeing your list I think I will write my own detailed goal list!

  7. Kelli Bailey says:

    I feel like this list could just as easily work for me too! Trying to get healthier will ALWAYS be on my list too haha, thanks for the share πŸ™‚

  8. My plan is to blog regularly. I haven’t really been consistent with it lately. And like you, I want to eat healthier too πŸ™‚

    That last goal is very important ! It’s good to have a planner, especially at this time of the year. We get so busy, it can only help !

    One of my goals for the rest of the year is to blog regularly. I’ve gotten out of the habit of blogging but I love it so much. But, because this is on my mind I am blogging more and I can’t wait to finish out this year strong!

  11. Goals! You have goals? I’m so jealous. I’m so scattered. I need to set some goals!

  12. Allison says:

    These are great end of the year goals! Good luck!

  13. Whitney S says:

    Good luck on your goals!! I have a financial goal that I want to make monthly from my job (I work from home and can work as little or as much as I want). I also have set a monthly financial goal regarding my blog.

  14. My plan is to increase traffic and regular writing. It will be nice for me to double up social follower like you did. Thanks for the share.
