People with goals succeed because they know where they’re going – Earl Nightingale
I seem to say this every single month but the month seems to have flown by again! Although I will say that September felt much longer than August. I want to look back and reflect on my goals this month because I don’t feel as though I have worked as hard as I could. I felt a little lost with my blog around the middle of the month and I felt as though I had a lot piled on and not much time to sort it out. Emily was teething and sleeping proved difficult so I’m keen to see how I did with my goals.
Twitter – Goal: 650 Actual: 560+
Page Views – Goal: 750 Actual: 1102+
Pinterest – Goal: 50K viewers and 4/5 pins Actual: 35K viewers and 4 pins
Facebook – Goal: 4 posts Actual: 3 posts
So I haven’t done too badly on my goals this month. I knew Twitter was going to be a slow one and that’s okay. I haven’t put as much work in as I should on trying to grow my following there so I’m going to take that goal over to next month too. My page views once again I have absolutely smashed! I’m so so proud of myself. I wasn’t sure I would get over 1000 views two months in a row but this month has been even better than last! Pinterest again is another one that I let myself down on. I managed to get my viewers up to 41K on the second week of September but I let my blog slide a little in preparation for Blogtober which has had a negative effect on my Pinterest. I’m looking forward to working hard on it in October! I’m happy with my progress with Facebook. As I mentioned above I let my blog slide a little this month so 3 out of 4 isn’t bad!
Clean every day – needs improvement
Read more – needs improvement
Get out more – Success
Well, I don’t want to say too much about this because I don’t want to dwell. I did not do too well on my personal goals this month but that is okay. I have cleaned every other day this month on average and that is an improvement on last month. I’ll work harder to work it into my routine more next month to keep on top of the jobs. Reading more was basically a fail. I haven’t picked up a book once. Again, i’ll try again next month! I did succeed in getting out of the house more though. I managed to get out of the house most days and go for a walk. Baby ballet on Saturdays really helps with this and one of the days I walked about 10 miles!
How did you do on your goals this month?
