My Top Five November Goals For The Month

At the beginning of every month, I like to think about a few things that I hope to accomplish over the next few weeks. These five November goals I set revolve around self-reflection and honing in my focus when it comes to my career.

My Top Five November Goals For The Month

Whenever I set too many goals, I end up doing none of them leaving me feeling like I’ve failed myself. Goal setting is supposed to be intrinsically rewarding… not demotivating.

Personally, I’ve found that just a handful of goals work best for the month. This year, I’ve really enjoyed logging my monthly goals on my blog:

When I track, I can see just how much I was able to truly accomplish. Moving forward, I adjust my plans and rethink my strategy. I’m a work-in-progress and that’s ok.

Let’s break down my 5 November Goals and discuss why I chose them.

No More Courses Or Books

I am going to stop reading and learning for the rest of the year which is actually pretty counterintuitive to who I am. But I’ve become so invested in becoming a student that it’s starting to take away from work hours in the day.

Continue To Write A Post A Day – Even On The Weekends

But, Vera… take a break! No. It’s been several months that I haven’t missed a BEAT with this. You might not know this because on Lady and the Blog it doesn’t look like I’m writing every single day.

The truth is that I have a second secret blog and that is where I am doing the majority of my writing. I started a passion project late last year and finally started really focusing on it this summer.

All my effort is going towards writing at least one new update a day over there because I’m really trying to grow it out – big time. I won’t stop until I hit 50,000 views a month. That’s the goal.

Celebrate My Birthday Month

I am turning 43 this month and I am going to go out with a bang. I honestly love my birthday month. And you know what? I plan on taking full advantage of taking advantage of all my family and friends.

More Time With Friends

I spent some time this month with pseudo-friends and it felt so icky. I left immediately because I refused to stay anywhere I don’t feel like I belong. It made me realize that I need to be with people who I actually want to be around.

So, I went home and made plans after plans after plans with my GIRLS. Felt good. There will be much more of this for the rest of the month/year.

More Meal Planning

Last month, I dropped the ball on cooking. Nothing really great came out of my kitchen two nights in a row. I basically felt like I was just heating up things. I do NOT like that.

So, I’m going to get more organized! This is the only way I can do this. Sit down on Sunday and figure out what I’m cooking. Use my grocery shopping list and my meal planning printable.

Do you set goals for yourself on a monthly basis? How are you walking through November? Would love to hear some of your hopes and dreams for the next few weeks.

    I think November is the perfect time to stop a little and feel the moment.
    As a member of Dissertation Team, I write, read, help students every day, which makes me understand your need to reduce the information flow.
    Hope you’ll feel happy every day!

    These are really good goals. Now many people set certain business goals for themselves. But it is also very important to work together and understand cross-cultural management https://thepointnews.com/nicolas-krafft-former-loreal-executive-tips-cross-cultural-management/ to achieve the goal. Thus, in the human resource management system, the cultural characteristics of a particular nation become one of the reserves of the organization’s development, which objectively causes the need to consider this range of problems not only at the applied, but also at the theoretical level.
