October is here and that means it’s time to make another batch of monthly goals. As the end of the year approaches, the months tend to get busier. This leads me to adjust my goals quite a bit so that I can keep up with everything without burning out. Before we get to my October 2023 goals, let’s take a moment to see how I did with September’s goals. September Review September was decently busy as I tackled a good chunk of garden work and began to knock out some of our winter prep work as well. Even so, I did pretty well with myRead More →

September is here and that means the arrival of fall is fast approaching. I’m excited that the weather is cooling down and the leaves are already changing. It’s a time of transition and I live for it. September is also inherently a busy month but that won’t stop me from making several goals. I want to keep busy because before long winter will be here, and that will limit what I can do – especially outside. Before we go into my September 2023 goals, I’d like to take a moment to go over how I did with my August goals. August review August was aRead More →

August is here. Another month of 2023 has come and gone and we are quickly approaching the end of the year. It’s hard to believe that we are at the peak of summer and soon fall will be in the air. Though summer is slipping away, there is still plenty of time to get out there and have fun. August will likely be a busy month, especially with the garden, as this is when most plants start to produce in earnest. Because of this, I will be keeping my goals relatively light so I am free to deal with the harvest as it comes in.Read More →

With July’s arrival, we are officially in the second half of 2023. This year seems to be flying by – as most years tend to do. July is usually a busy month for keeping up with the garden, especially weeding and watering. Despite this, I am planning to get as many other things done as possible over the month. Setting monthly goals helps me keep focused on what needs to get done and I always make sure to throw in a fun goal as well. Before I get into my July 2023 goals, I’d like to take a moment to go over how I didRead More →

June brings us into summer and that means warmer weather and plenty of time outside in the garden. The first half of this year has gone by fairly quickly, with many months practically sneaking up on me. I have been looking forward to June’s arrival for a while because it means I finally get to work in the garden. I know this month is bound to be busy, but I am excited to see what I can accomplish. Before I get into my June 2023 goals, I’d like to take a moment to go over how I did with my May goals. May goals reviewRead More →

Much like April, May snuck up on me and I felt unprepared for the month. Luckily, May also happens to be a month that’s a combination of cooler weather along with the warmer hints of spring. This means, on the warmer days I should have the motivation I need to get outside and tackle some chores that need to get done. This also means more opportunities to go on more walks without having to bundle up. Before I get into my May 2023 goals, I’d like to take a moment to share how I did with my April goals. April review April was a decentlyRead More →

April snuck up on me before I was ready for it. Despite that, I am still going to set some monthly goals so that I can keep on track with some important tasks that need to get done. This is the month when spring usually starts to truly show up, though winter weather can still arrive here and there. Before I get into my April 2023 goals, I want to take a moment to share how I did with my March goals. March 2023 goals March didn’t quite go as planned and yet I accomplished nearly all of my goals. I will admit, I didRead More →

Another month has snuck up upon us and I feel highly unprepared for it. Ready or not for the month ahead, it’s important to set up monthly goals to keep myself on track to ensure I am making the most of the month. This is the month when spring teases it’s arrival but we don’t let those warm weather days fool us – winter will stick around for a while. Even so, it means the potential for spending a bit more time outside and slowly shifting goals to match the changing weather. Before we get into my March 2023 goals, I’d like to review howRead More →

The second month of 2023 is already here. January certainly flew by for me and it was a busy month. While we are still thoroughly entrenched in winter, the days are getting longer and that means there will be more and more to do in the coming months. This month is bound to be another fairly busy one. To keep myself on track, I create a list of monthly goals. Each month, I assess what needs to get done and adjust my goals to match that. Before we get to my February 2023 goals, I’d like to take a moment to look over how IRead More →

Can you believe it’s 2023 already? The last year truly went by in a flash. While many people will be making, and possibly failing, their new year’s resolutions, I am sticking with goal-making. I have found over the last few years that making monthly goals is the best way to get stuff done without overwhelming myself or setting unrealistic milestones. If you haven’t already given monthly goals a try, I highly recommend doing so. It truly makes a world of difference. Normally, I would make a huge goals list for January, however, this month is going to be busy in a different way, so myRead More →
