Updated: Aug 1
The end of the month is a great time to reflect and get a little introspective. With the coming of a new month, comes the opportunity to better yourself and your life. It's a fresh start for you to achieve your goals and dreams.
Through my life and the path to achieving my goals, I have created a simple 4-step method to organize my life and keep my sh*t together. I know that you can benefit from it too!
By using this method you will be able to reflect on:
What You've Achieved
What You Didn't
How You've Grown
Planning The Month Ahead
After using this monthly reflection method, you'll gain insight into what you can do easily, what you have difficulties with, what works for you the best, etc.
It's a brilliant way to create a master-plan for achieving your dream life without getting overwhelmed!
Step One: Your Accomplishments
Starting off on a positive note, think of all the things that you achieved, things that you wanted and needed to do last month. List them on a piece of paper, or better, in your journal. Listing your accomplishments can drastically improve your motivation to take on another goal!
What did I accomplish this month, that I needed to get done?
What did I accomplish, that I wanted to accomplish?
What did I do this month, that I'm proud of?
What did I do this month to work on my goals?
Did I do anything this month for myself?
Step Two: Your Failures
Now, don't get discouraged by the world failure. It's only a word that means the opposite of accomplishment. With that, I'd like you to list out all the things you needed or wanted to do that you DIDN'T do. Listing these will create self-awareness of your weaknesses so that you can find a way to strengthen them.
What needed to get done this month, that I didn't get to?
What will I do this coming month, to make sure what needs to be done gets done?
What did I want to do this month, that I didn't get to?
Did I manage my time correctly, or did I procrastinate?
What obstacles did I face this past month?
How will I overcome the next obstacle that comes my way?
What can I do to prevent procrastination?
Step Three: Growth:
As humans, Personal growth is in our instincts. We're always trying to be better, learn more, do more, etc. So, how did you grow this month? You can learn more about Personal Growth here
Did I learn anything new this month?
What did I learn about myself this month?
Did I break a habit or overcome a fear?
Step Four: Planning Ahead
It's time to look forward to the next month. When you plan ahead, you're less likely to be beaten down by challenges or obstacles. You'll be prepared and a little more motivated to take on your goals.
How can I improve myself for the next month?
What do I have leftover from this month that I have to do next month?
How can I take what I've learned and use it to make things better next month?
How can I plan for obstacles I know I will face?
How can I encourage myself when I face unforeseen challenges?
Now that you've done your monthly reflection, it's time to put a plan together! Remember what you've written down and put your goals into action! Get my tips for Monthly Planning here.
Without a plan, without action, your goal are just empty promises. You owe it to yourself to make your dreams come true! Now, go get them, girl!
