Last month, I posted my goals for March. They held me accountable for the first week or so, and then the month went off the rails. In turn, my goals were no longer achievable. For this post, I will be outlining my goals for April and following up on the goals I set for myself in March.
April is going to be a doozy. It’s basically guaranteed that for the entity of the month we will be practicing social distancing. What fun times we live in… Anyway, I need to acknowledge that many of the goals I set may not be obtainable by the end of the month. As this month is going to be difficult, I made sure to make these goals simpler than my usual ones.
What I will do my best to achieve during April:
- Drink a gallon of water everyday
- Spend less than 4.5 hours daily on my phone
- Get in at least 5000 steps daily
- Eat a vegetable everyday
- Start bullet journaling
- Read a book
- Keep in touch with friends
- Create more cohesive content
- Reach 250 followers on Instagram
- Post two blog posts a week and every other day on Instagram
I feel like those are pretty achievable for the long month to come. I also toned down my goals because I noticed that I didn’t achieve a lot of my goals from March (granted that some of that is out of my control). Additionally, the goals I set were not necessarily measurable. For example, spend less time on my phone. You’ll notice that for this month I said “spend less than 4.5 hours daily on my phone,” which is measurable.
Looking back at “my March goals,” I achieved one third of my goals. The main ones that I wanted to achieve, but didn’t were to post twice a week and to make twice as much as I spend. I was (kinda) close to achieving both of them, but because I didn’t refer to my list, I slipped. This month, I am going to make achieving these goals a priority. On the bright side, I did skip minimal runs, became more consistent with insta content, and hung out with my friends more (excluding the part with social distancing).
April is definitely going to be rough, but we can get through this! The weather (where I am) is going to get nicer, so that’s a plus. And I have a whole slew of projects that I can work on. Now that I’ve adjusted, I feel like I can really focus on achieving these goals and learning new things.
