Visualising the End Result – March 2012 Goal Review


March was a very tumultuous month for me. Lots and lots of good things happened, but I have never had so many technical issues ever on the blog as I had in the month of March.

If you also follow my facebook page, you will have noticed a few inspirational quotes, like the one above posted on the page! Through out the techno troubles I found it really helped to visualise what the end result was I was working towards. In this case it was a more secure site with a fabulous new design.

It didn’t make anything work better or quicker, but it reminded why I needed to persist and stay the course. I am still visualising this at the moment as I await for more changes to kick in behind the scenes so I can implement the new design…..

Personal Goals – March Review

I did however spend more time and emotional energy on the techno stuff, so it did impact on other goals I was trying to achieve.

 Goals for 2012Key Tasks For MarchReview March Activity
1. - Blog- Complete make over of blog, to be completed by March.
- Grow the blog to a business.
Implement new design.

Firm up business plan for 2012.
The design is yet to go on the blog. Due to significant security issues with my host, I needed to changes hosts.

The transfer of the blog from one hosting provider to another is at this stage still not complete. Until this happens I cannot implement the new design :(.
2. - FamilyReintroduce a regular games night.The older boys have not been joining in as much as I would like. I need to be more creative with the games, so they will want to play.Games night just hasn't worked for us. What has worked is a session at some point across the weekend that involves as much physical activity as possible!

So far we have done things like:
- Soccer game
- British bulldog
- Air hockey tournament

These types of activities have been so much fun and enjoyed by all.
3. - PartnerWeekend away on our own (carry over from 2011!)Lock down a date for when we will do this and explore options for the kids.How hard could it possibly be to lock down a date? Not done as yet...... onto next month's task this goes.
4. - MeChange the way I eat - more balanced (less carbs).Find new lunch ideas that do not involve bread!First half of the month was fantastic. As the techno issues engulfed me, I went back to what was easy, what was known and comfort carb eating! Another one for next month as well!

    I’ve been writing out daily goals for the last couple of weeks and have found I’m accomplishing more, but I like the idea of doing monthly and annual goals, as well, so the daily goals support something bigger.

    Wow, so impressed with your goals, I really should think more clearly about what I want to get done, I seem to just plod on and get through each day, then look back and wonder where all that time went!

    I love this image in your post. Pinned it :)
