January 2023 goals & December review

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 my goals list is very small. Before we get into my January 2013 goals, I want to take a moment to look back at how I did with December’s goals.

December 2022 review

I made no goals in December, feeling some burnout coming on and wanting to enjoy the holidays and take time off.

I am happy to announce that I did just that. It was a relaxing month. Most of my time was spent playing World of Warcraft: Dragonflight and I’m enjoying it quite a bit. There was also lots of holiday baking happening and staying cozy inside while winter did its thing.  I did read one book in December, A Man Called Ove and it was alright.  I also watched 1 season of The Santa Clauses, and 1 season of Frozen Planet II.

This month off helped me to recharge and be ready to tackle the new month and year.

January 2023 goals

Life goals

  • Read at least 5 books. As always, I am aiming to do some reading this month so I can continue to shrink my TBR.
  • Watch at least 1 season of a show. Much like my TBR, my to-watch list is huge and I will continue to work on that by watching at least 1 season of a show this month. I haven’t decided what I will watch yet, but there is a high likelihood that it will be anime.

Blogging goals

  • Make blog changes and improvements. I know this is very vague, however, I do have an extensive list of blog tasks I want to get done this month – it’s too many to list here. I will say big changes are coming to the blog, the most notable one has already happened: my domain has changed! Beyond that, it’s a lot of SEO work, changing graphics, updating other things, etc. As I said, too many to list them all. This is where the vast majority of my time will be spent this month, so expect posts to be quiet – in fact, this may be the only post this month because of this.

Those are my January 2023 goals. What are your goals this month?
