I can’t believe its May already! Time to recap on my April goals and set some goals for May..

RECAP

BLOGGING GOALS

  • Write at least one guest post – This totally didn’t happen. I wrote some ghost written blog content for some companies but nothing bearing my byline.
  • Get scheduled in advance – This happened for a few days but soon stopped.
  • Clear my backlog of emails etc – I’ve been really good at keeping on top of my emails for once!

FREELANCING GOALS

  • Keep updating my work website – Nope. I haven’t updated for a while but its on my to do list for this week.
  • Keep searching for long term clients – I’ve kept searching and have some potential long term clients in the works. Plus someone I worked with on a one off job came back in April and even told a colleague about me who came to me for some freelance work. Yay!

PERSONAL GOALS

  • Enter at least one writing competition this month – This didn’t happen and I am gutted about this.
  • Participate in the writing linkys I love this month – Nope 🙁
  • Read 5 books – This definitely didn’t happen.
  • Spend an hour a week adding to my NaNo draft – No, this hasn’t seen any movement.

FINANCIAL GOALS

  • Save some money for holiday – I’ve given my parents a little towards holiday already. Not much but its a start.
  • Pay off more outstanding debts – Yep. Having had a fairly good month I’ve been paying some stuff off.
  • Declutter more and sell what I can – I’ve sold a few things but not as much as I would like.

HEALTH & FITNESS GOALS

  • Diversify my routine more – I can’t say this happened very often…
  • Walk more – I am back into my walking and really enjoying it. I even helped out with a school trip because I knew it would involve lots of walking
  • Try something new – Well..this is actually happening tonight but does it count as something new if I signed up to the new village running club in April? Please say it does!

I didn’t do too badly on my goals in April although I am really disappointed with my personal goals..I didn’t really achieve anything here. So what are my goals for May?

  1. okay, so April you managed a few of your goals which was alright – it can get so hard trying to stick to something once life takes over. Good for you setting new goals for May

  2. Well done on completing some of your monthly goals, I only managed to do about half of mine too! Good luck with them this month.

  3. I love this idea. Having things wrote down strangely motivates me more knowing that I can check things off. I cant remember the last time I actually read a book never mind 5!! I like the idea of 2 though.. totally do able right?

  4. I am a huge believe in goals, and really respect you for making yours public.
    I have Just signed up for my third attempt at the 100 day goal and mine is to clear the backlog that is crushing every bit of creativity I possess.
