Happy October! 🍃🍁🍂 I love monthly goal setting because it helps me get clear on my goals helps me create a clear intentions on what I aspire to accomplish over the course of the month.
A new month symbolizes a fresh start and a chance to reflect on habits and daily rituals that I’ve implemented. Keeping what is best serving my body and adjusting what isn’t.
My Monthly Goal Setting Process
I chose to focus on overall behavioral adjustments that allow me to determine my needs. When I set overarching intentions I can focus habits that are most important.
The diagram above allowed me to visualize the concept of priorities.
I follow a simple process. I release, then I organize, and finally I prioritize. This step by step process for monthly goal setting allows for a clear vision to keep me on track. I reflect back on the list on a weekly/monthly basis. If you have the time, creating an aesthetic journal with your priorities can add for extra motivation and allow for some creative release!
First, I make a lost of all thing I want to achieve. Then I ask myself what things are most important and create an updated list. The final list only has the most important goals.I call this a “priority” list, which allows me to stay clear and focused without extra distraction or feeling of overwhelm.
Having a lot of goals and desires leaves me needing a strict schedule. This ensures that I don’t become overwhelmed or overworked. However, these intentions allow me to stay focused on my priorities.
