Hey guys! Welcome back. Since we are in the start of a new month I thought it would be a really good time to share the things I do every month to start off on the right foot. Doing these things helps me keep track of my goals, my priorities for the month, and anything that I may want to work on or focus on for the month ahead. It’s also a great way for me to reflect on the previous month so I know what to watch out for in the new month. So here are the things I do at the start of every month.
Do a check of my finances.
Now that I am making a steady paycheck and working to pay all of my bills and stay off on top of things, I want know that I am keeping up with how much I am bringing in and what I am putting out. It helps me work towards my financial goals and make sure that I am not going over what I have to spend. It’s just a great time for me to reflect on the previous month and set a budget for the new month.
Reflect on the previous month.
I like to look back on my goals and intentions for the previous month to see what I accomplished and what my struggles were. No month is perfect and there are definitely things that could be improved on. So at the start of a new month I like to look back and see what I need to do to be better in the month ahead. I think reflection is super important and it helps me know what I need to keep working on and what I am doing well at.
Whether it’s plans with friends, appointments that need to be made, or plans for specific things that need to be done, I like to make the plans as early in the month as possible. I like to know as much in advance as I can when it comes to plans because it helps ensure that I don’t schedule too many things at one time and that I know what to expect in the weeks ahead. It just helps keep me organized and prepared.
Being organized and having an organized space is super critical to my success both in work and in life. So I like to take some time at the beginning of each month to organize. I definitely start with organizing my room, bathroom, and closet because those are physical things that need to be organized. I also organize to-do lists, my computer and phone, and anything else that needs to be cleaned up.
Set personal goals.
You guys know if you have been around for a while that I set personal goals for myself every month and share them here for you guys to see. I love having goals for myself because it gives me something to work toward and also helps me keep track of what I am wanting to improve on and how I can grow each month. Having goals is something that is super important to me and really helps me be a better person.
Those are the things I do at the beginning of every month! They are super simple for the most part, but I promise they are all important and effective. Life is so much better and easier when I do them. Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this. Please like it if you did.
