Are your goals on track?

Stay focused with your goals

I’ve tried for years and years to make sure my goals are on track. I’ve been through so many planners and reminders but never found a strategy that really works, until this year. As I’ve grown older I’ve learnt that I don’t need to base my goals around materials things constantly and even if I do, its important to understand the humble process that goal setting takes you on to achieve that. For me, its all about learning the deeper meaning behind why I set the goals I do.

For example, I’ve set myself the monthly goal of tracking my blog stats. Each month I aiming to set my target higher than the last months. Now that seems like and fairly simple goal, however theres so much depth behind it that I’m constantly going on a process each month. I have evaluate each piece of content from the last month and see what performed well and what didn’t, draft on what new content I can create thats still consistent with past content and my blog figure out strategies to promote it also. So behind every goals, theres always going to be so much more.

 

Goal Setting

Every goal I set myself from now on, is part of the process to helping myself achieve the lifestyle I aspire to have. So right now, I want my ultimate lifestyle to be wholesome, calm & fulfilling. So think about what goals you can set yourself to push yourself to your ideal lifestyle, not what society may push you towards. It’s always important to create a big picture and see what you can see yourself with. I make sure to see the big picture with one of my favourite strategies a vision board, something you can create to have on your desk or even something you can create on a computer. (I’ll be doing a blog post on this in the near future)

I like to always assess each goal with the SMART goals steps. No matter how small it is. It’s such a thought provoking process for keep you on track.

Always ask yourself WHY you are doing what your doing. Make sure it’s bringing you back to the core of why you setting each specific goal. Visualise yourself six months in the future, achieving all your goals you set yourself today. Are you happy? Is this fulfilling? The most important goals are the ones that you can merge your personal and professional life together, if you can set a goal to help yourself feel fulfilled in both, then your definitely on the right track for achieving the bigger picture.

    • 💫 Well, it’s my second day of working from home for the foreseeable future. I’ve worked from home quite a bit anyway with my job but doing it long term is going to be quite a shift. 🎉However, it is something we can & must do if able. So how am I setting myself up? 🥰I’m trying to keep as much of a schedule going as possible when it comes to work. I’m also working on creating a barrier between my home environment & work environment, it’s important to not let it all merge into one. 🙏🏻 I’ll be sharing everything through my stories and blog soon. Remember, we are all in this together! My DM’s are always open if anyone needs a chat. 👌🏼💖
    • ✨ A little throwback snap from one of my new favourite hotspots in Cambridge, wishing this had been my breakfast this morning. 🍳 I obviously won’t be cooking anything as fabulous while I’m working from home, but one can dream right?! 💖💫
    • 💫 LIVING LIFE IN THE SLOW LANE. ✨ We’ve not really ventured out the house much this weekend except for the one Tesco shop. (Not a fun experience) Although the UK isn’t on a lockdown yet, we are prepping for it and limiting where we go. Ive really been enjoying the #staythefuckhome & defo recommend you give it a scroll. Stay safe, stay well & stay home (if you can) 🥰♥️
    • ✨ With all the noise from the news & a heavy work load, I’ve been finding it difficult to get a proper good sleep 💤 this week. I’m sure some of you are just the same. It’s a crazy, unknown time and difficult to just switch off from that anxious feeling. Luckily I’ve found a little  bedtime spray, a good book 📚 and night time moisturiser can help calm me down a little. While it obviously doesn’t magically solve everything, it does help me. 💫 So, I encourage you all to do the little things that make you feel just that little bit better during this time.♥️
    • Happy Sunday! 💫 oh my goodness, it’s been a hella of a busy time of late. Over the last few weeks, works been full on & I somehow managed to squeeze in a driving test along the way (which I passed 🎉) AND as a result, I’ve had a very exciting weekend shopping for my first car, feeling very happy & lucky. 😌Today I think I’m just gonna nest at home and enjoy the art of doing nothing ✨
    • 💫 Going into today with this as my mantra.👌🏼 Its no secret that I’m currently finding myself swamped at work! 😩So wishing you a peaceful & smooth working week ✨💖
