Monthly Goals: March 2017

0 comments
 
I'm a bit late in updating my goals for the month. I have no excuse. My motivation is lacking. My attitude is foul. And by 5 o'clock each day, my pajamas call out my name. Even writing this post is a chore. Zero inspiration. So seeing the results of my February goals are deflating but not surprising.

HOW I DID IN FEBRUARY:

❌ Read one book. I wasn't even close. I didn't crack open a book let alone finish one. This missed goal bums me out. I own several books I want to dig into, but I haven't been able to make the time for them.

❌ Workout 20 times. I hit 17 and then the sinus infection hit. I was down for the count at the end of the month and had to skip my last 3 workouts.

✔️ Set a budget. Boom. Finally a goal that I made. But this was more out of necessity than staying accountable. My wallet felt the burn this month. It was time to sit down and map out a plan.

GOALS FOR MARCH:

🎯 Workout 20 times. Eh, it's a longer month. Maybe this time I'll hit my goal.

🎯 Read one book. What can I say? I'm a glutton for a punishment.

🎯 Meditate once a day. This is a practice I enjoy. And I recognize the importance of meditation in my life. But for some reason, I've been out of sync and my daily practice has gone down the drain. It's time to fix that.

I should feel like a failure for not succeeding in February's goals. But that's where my apathy comes in handy. Looks like I need an attitude adjustment. Let's see if March brings about the change I need.

Monthly Goals: February 2017

I happened upon this blog post and immediately thought it was brilliant in its simplicity. So I have decided to do a review of my goals for each month. I attempted this experiment and failed. Documenting my goals may last a year. It may last a few weeks. But by making my goals public, the hope is to stay motivated (and maybe help or entertain anyone that reads this blog).

An Introvert's Guide to Surviving a Conference

I am by no means shy. I enjoy talking about a common passion or shared interest. Yet interacting with people sucks the energy out of me. The idea of a room filled with strangers is exciting and exhausting all at the same time. These opposing forces are something only an introvert like me may understand.
