Hello and welcome to another Goal Setting for Greatness linky. This is a weekly linky where we set ourselves goals for the week (or month) ahead and provide accountability and support for each other.
I set myself monthly goals, and the idea is that achieving my weekly goals will enable me to meet those monthly goals – which in turn will allow me to meet my long term goals. Whether you set weekly or monthly goals – or some other frequency – you are welcome to link up here, regardless of what type of blog you have.
On with the goals, then.
October Goals – Update
Increase my Income by 5% – as I said last month: it’s staying on here until I do it!
Stay on Track with Training – I have invested in a training course which requires a minimum of five hours’ work per week. I feel like if I keep up with it, I will make enough money to pay for the course and then some – the trick is to make sure I stay on track with it!
Exercise a Minimum of Five Times per Week – I’ve been doing PiYo for eight weeks, but I finished the timetable that came with the dvds this week. I know what I’m like; I am really good at making excuses not to exercise! I want to make sure I keep up my exercise routine.
Last Week’s Weekly Goals
Email Contacts – I’ve emailed a few contacts so far, but I have a few other ideas up my sleeve!
Schedule Five Hours of Training – I actually managed this! Between early morning working and getting my work finished earlier in the day, I’ve managed to get a fair amount of training and development work done.
Exercise Five Times – I didn’t manage this. I had planned my week so that I could spend Saturday at a blogging conference without having to try and fit in a workout – but I have had an awful cold for the last few days. I ended up cutting one workout in half, and skipping another. So I actually only manged 3.5 workouts – but I was ill, so I’m not giving myself a hard time about that!
This Week’s Goals
Begin blocking my work – It occurs to me that there are several tasks I know I need to do each week, and I have a list of what needs doing at the beginning of the month – but I still do the task weekly. There is no reason I can’t block all of this together and do it in one go, and so that’s what I want to begin doing this week. The hope is that by doing this I can free up more time for other cunning plans…
Print modules for training – In the same way that I want to begin blocking my work, I also want to get all of my training materials printed so that when I want to begin a module I’m not held up by waiting for it to print!
Workout five times – I’m not feeling much better if I’m honest, but I think if I get back to working out at 5:30 in the mornings it might help me to feel more motivated and to shake off this cold!
