Monthly Goals // July 2018

We’re already halfway through the year, which means it’s less than six months until Christmas! Can you believe it? I love writing these Monthly Goals as it helps me to be on target for my Personal and Blogging Goals. I feel without them I would forget and go off track, there’s nothing worse than getting to the end of the year and not achieving the Goals you set out at the beginning.

Today I will be reflecting on the Goals I set myself for June and creating some new ones for July. June has definitely been a great month and things have been just a little busy with a couple of car shows and visiting Plymouth. I swear I have not stopped and it’s gone so quick to think it’s now July. You can learn all about what I’ve been loving throughout June here.

Before I set myself some new Goals for July, let’s reflect on my June Goals!

Book Review // The Development

May is definitely turning into a good month! I’m excited to be sharing with you today my thoughts on The Development by Jackie Kabler. I’m trying my hardest to read at least one book each month, to reach my Goodreads Reading Challenge of fifteen books in 2018. This month is very strong for this as I’m participating in three different Blog Book Tour. First, I read The Planetsider, then I read SHINE, I planned these well seeing as it’s Get Caught Reading Month.

This blog book tour is hosted by Jenny Marston, over at Neverland Blog Tours, I have found some new loves since participating in book tours. Today is no different as I am the first stop on The Development Blog Tour hosted by Jenny, I am also sharing today with Oh Hay! Blogs and Everywhere & Nowhere so please check out their blogs to read what they thought.

With a new month here, it means it’s time to set some new Goals for the upcoming month. I love writing down my Goals each month as it really helps me to stay on target for my 2018 Personal and Blogging Goals. I’ve had a lovely April, you can find out what I’ve been loving here with my April Favourites. Here, I share with you what I’ve been up to as well as products I’ve been loving.

For today’s post though, it’s all about my Monthly Goals! I’ve had a really strong month, I have achieved a lot of different things, but are they the same as what I set out to achieve at the beginning of April. It’s good to also reflect on your previous Goals, this helps to see if you’ve been on target throughout the month and gives you an indication of where you need to go for the next month.

Before I set myself some new Goals for May, let’s reflect on my April Goals!

May 2018 – Get Caught Reading Month

It only feels like yesterday that it was January, now we’re starting May. Spring is definitely here and hopefully, it will stick around for a little while. I’m really enjoying sharing with you different National Day/Month, you get to learn something new and exciting. May marks Get Caught Reading Month, a nationwide campaign to promote the fun of reading books for all ages.

The campaign was launched in 1999 by the Association of American Publishers and now managed by Every Child a Reader with support from the Lois Lenski Covey Foundation. To celebrate Get Caught Reading Month is really easy you just need to dig your nose into a book and forget about the concerns of other peoples’ opinions. Get Caught Reading Month is a great chance to meet other bibliophiles as well!

For starting the fifth month, that’s not too bad going!

This month, I’ve got quite a few surprises that I can not wait to show you! I’m not going to let the cat out of the bag here though, you’ll have to stay tuned to find out what they are about. Today, I am sharing with you my thoughts on The Planetsider, thanks to participating in the Book Blog Tour hosted by Jenny Marston, over at Neverland Blog Tours.

Today is the day where I reflect on my March Goals and then setting some new Goals for the upcoming month. I love writing my Goals down as it is the perfect way of making sure I achieve things in the month. March has been an amazing month!

This year seems to be going fast at the moment, can you really believe that it’s April, I don’t know where the time is going! Something that also proves that time is going quick, is that next week marks six months since I started with 4CM, which is something I can not believe! I love setting Goals each month as it keeps me motivated to achieve my year Goals. It keeps you going and you’ll know if you’re on target.

2018 Personal Goals

It’s nearly the end of January, our first month of 2018 is nearly complete! It’s been a crazy month, as well as very busy, not only in my personal life but also at work, January is a horrible month having to pick up things after being off for Christmas. This is the first year I’ve experienced something like this as I’ve always worked in retail and a Christmas break doesn’t exist!

One thing I love doing at this time of year is plan out what I want to achieve, you could even call it complete. I know I do my Monthly Goals but those are more specific for each month, whereas these Goals I don’t actually know when I’ll complete them. I’ve never been one for setting New Year Resolutions, I feel Goals are much better, for me, they give more motivation to achieve them.
