January “Task” Review and Plans for February

in goal review, goals

Just as a refresher…I posted a piece about goals a few weeks back.  In it, I rambled on about what goals are and if I actually am a goal setter or a task setter.  I came to the conclusion that I’m a task setter.  Goals are great and wonderful, but I’m a more “right here, right now” kind of person, so making a list of tasks to complete really works for me.

My January tasks:

  1. Complete the January projects on my house list
  2. Read 5 books
  3. Buy a new vacuum cleaner and thoroughly vacuum my house
  4. Make a to-do list every day at work and stick to it
  5. Blog 3-4 days a week

I’m happy to say that I accomplished 4 of the 5 things on my list.  I bought a new doorbell, and a rug, mirror for my foyer.  My dad surprised me by bringing over a shelving unit for my garage when he stopped by to fix a leaky sink.  I also bought a new vacuum cleaner.  It was a much needed purchase and I’m super embarrassed by how much comes out of the my carpet every time I vacuum.  It’s disgusting really.  I also read 6 books.

The only thing I didn’t do was blog 3-4 days a week.  I have a lovely blog schedule and I try to stick to it, I really do, but there just isn’t always enough hours in the day.  I need to work on making it more of a priority and forcing myself to find the time.

And now on to my February tasks…

February Candy Hearts

  1. Install crown molding throughout the upstairs (my February house project and really a job for The Carpenter.  I’ll supervise of course. 😉 )
  2. Read 5 books
  3. Vacuum and dust my house once a week
  4. Clean out and scrub my refrigerator
  5. Explore ways to find motivation to blog and to exercise
  6. Keep making and sticking to a to-do list at work everyday

What are your February tasks and/or goals?

I agree. I love creating and crossing off tasks too. Since I work online and attend school online, I actually post sticky notes to my desktop.

Good luck with it all! 🙂
