I can’t believe that this month is about to be over. If I dare to say, I’d say it was one of the best months of the year. It’s not like something huge happened externally, but more internally. I’ve learned to be more myself (This is a process I’m still learning, though. If you want me to write more about this, tell me in the comments).
So from now on, every few last Monday of the month this Reflection blog series will be a subseries to a #MondayMotivation series that I’ve had on this blog for a while.In it, I’ll explain how I create my goals and stick to them, and I’ll help you achieve the same.

- Get more than 5 subscribers on blog✓
- Work out 3 times a week
- Be more active✓

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.”
– How? – I’m going to work out in my room by watching YouTube videos for cardio exercises
– When? – Each day at 10 a.m.
– Why? – Because I want to be a fitter, healthier person.
Now it’s time to see how realistic a plan is.
How? – realistic; I am able to work out in my bedroom at any given moment that I’m at home
When? – I can work out at 10 a.m. if I make myself to do it first thing in the morning since I would be waking up at about 9:30-10
Why? – this is a solid goal and the purpose of me doing this challenge.
And that’s how you create a goal. If you need to, ask yourself even more questions to reflect more on it.
– How much time can I spend working on my goal?
– Is there anything else I can add to the plan to make it better?
– Is there any way I can speed the process up?
– What’s my time frame for the goal?
To improve my work out goal by answering questions above:
– I can spend three times a week working on it.
– Yes, I can add more willpower.
– Yes, I can add eating healthier to the table.
– Most likely forever or until I’m able to, but the work out regime will change over time as I get fitter and better at it.
So working out is one of my August 2018 goals, let’s see what are the other ones:
- Wake up earlier than usual
- Eat much healthier
- Save more money in the fund
- Publish three blog posts a week
- Buy a professional camera
- Publish three-seven times a week on Instagram
- Do photoshoots for blog
- Get more than 15 subscribers on the blog
- Engage in other people’s blogs and help them grow.
I’ll spend some time reflecting on these.
Now it’s time for you to reflect on your July and think about August. Ask yourself the questions above, add even more to the story and start taking action for them. Because truly, there are no achieved goals without action taken.
