January is already gone! yes nearly . I am asked if it is already too late to start planning your goals?. My answer is NO it is never too late.
For me the whole idea of Planning up ahead on time is a habit that can be adopted any time of the year. So if you are new to the idea of planning your coming goals it is the right time to get your feet into the goal planning.
As promised to my Goal planner worksheet pals, Here is your JANUARY and FEBRUARY planner Calendar pages complete with weekly tasks pages.
Simply print out the Monthly Spread and join them together through the middle if you would like it displayed anywhere in front of your workspace. OR if you are like me print and paste it as part of your journal.
If you use a binder to manage your printables, simply punch holes and add them up in your binder.
The Monthly spread also has a quick Weekly notes area which you can use as well. You can either use the weekly notes area to jot down your menu plan or if you blog like me you can add your post ideas. This can work great as a blog planner too.
Reviewing my Last year accomplished I have realized that I had been a completely lost person during 2015. I had been working on multiple projects, working on two jobs, failing to keep a good eye on my health and fitness, trying to make ends meet. AND LOST!.
During Dec 2015, I finally decided to take control of my life. I started writing down my reflections on the past year gone, reflections on my life and health, my spiritual growth and business, and found that I really was nowhere!. I was lost!
Come Dec 15th I started creating a workbook to channelize my life. “Create a plan, Create a plan life it is too short” is what kept banging on my head.
A part of this plan that I laid down was to share my financial growth with my readers as well. So here is a little breakdown, I am quite scared about sharing my financial information but I think I need an outlet to confront me as well.
So here goes Lets get this growth shared series started!
I have had this blog up since 2011 but really NEVER concentrated on earning money through this site. I have had the Etsy Shop from where I made sales usually but really didn’t put much effort into this blog at all. But with the coming new year I plan to work on this blog and somehow monetize my other websites and possibly share the income report and growth of this one. Once in a while.
Below is the screenshot of the analytics which will show you that I just recently decided to write via this blog hence the hits are working a bit upward.
Till now? Nil ! I will be adding recaps as we move forward hopefully.
WHAT I LEARNED THIS MONTH:
I felt like I had too much on my plate with my other blogs, Aivault for clipart and graphics, My studio website One8edegree Studios, Decalideas Blog. And my Coloring book underprocess. I feel that I am working on too many things at the same time. I will be dropping off a few of these websites I have been blogging lazily at and just concentrate more on this and Decalideas website.
With only 2 posts in the bucket, you can see that how bad I need to manage my blogging and job and kids.
I will be focusing more on writing quality contents for this site and increase the engagement of my readers.
I will be creating products but not as many as I used to make before. I will only be creating more of quality and less of quantity in terms of product creation.
AREAS TO WORK TOWARDS COMING MONTH:
1- I will be posting more
2- Creating Quality products
3-Using Pinterest and Explore autopilot apps for this.
4- Expanding my How to Start a Blog series posts with more tutorials.
5-Start adding more affiliate products & links to my top 10 posts on Google Analytics.
6-Upgrade my Goal Planner workbook and more valuable pages to it.
MY GOALS FOR NEXT MONTH:
1- Update my shop with tons of new designs still unpublished in my hard drive
2- Complete my planner workbook and publish it through Amazon.
3- Create a new E-book that is full of organization templates free to download through my site.
