February 2017 Goals

After I posted the full list of my 2017 goals midway through January, I realized that I never shared with you what areas of each goal I was focusing on within the month! So before I jump into sharing what my focus for February will be, let me first share with you what I worked on last month. 

January Goals: 

  • Finish knitting the baby blanket for Mattye's little one on the way

  • Watch Style and Styleability Intro Series

  • Go through the PowerSheets Couples Goal Setting Companion Guide with Kurt

  • Have a budget and calendar planning meeting with Kurt

  • Review 2017 calendar and mark birthday reminders

  • Unsubscribe from online shopping emails

  • Follow the 30 day Simplicity Challenge with Emily Ley

  • Purchase all of the books on my 2017 reading list

  • Replenish my greeting card supply

Overall, I'm pleased with the progress I made in my January goals, especially because I really only started focusing on them midway through the month! One thing that I love about the 2017 PowerSheets are the progress bars that accompany each line within the monthly goals section. I felt like I was able to see more progress throughout the month because I could shade in part of the bar each time I took a step forward. With just a check box in last year's version, it sometimes felt like I wasn't ever accomplishing anything! 

Regarding my progress with each of those monthly goals from January, here's how I did: 


January Goals Progress: 

  • Finish knitting the baby blanket for Mattye's little one on the way - I ran out of yarn with about ten days left in the month and had to purchase another skein. In the process of getting started with that second skein I also realized I'd made a huge mistake, so had to rip out the section I had been working on! But I restarted the last section this weekend, and now only have a few more rows to go now before I am finished!

  • Watch Style and Styleability Intro Series - DONE! (Up next is participating in a five-week online class that teaches 10 secrets to timeless style!)

  • Go through the PowerSheets Couples Goal Setting Companion Guide with Kurt - with two work weekends that required travel, Kurt and I just didn't get to this in January. I've placed it on our list for February instead!

  • Have a budget and calendar planning meeting with Kurt - same thing here. I reviewed our budget and calendar on my own and filled in things so Kurt knew when I was coming and going. We are planning to get back to our regularly scheduled meetings in February.

  • Review 2017 calendar and mark birthday reminders - DONE!

  • Unsubscribe from online shopping emails - DONE! (I am doing these as I receive them, so there might be a few more that I unsubscribe from in February. But the large majority have been removed from my inbox!)

  • Follow the 30 day Simplicity Challenge with Emily Ley - DONE! (While I didn't do the action listed for every day of the challenge, I did follow along and complete the actions that were most relevant to me! You can check the hashtag #SimplicityChallenge2017 on Instagram to see what is outlined for all 30 days.)

  • Purchase all of the books on my 2017 reading list - DONE! (If you want to know what's on my 2017 reading list, I shared all 21 books on my list here!)

  • Replenish my greeting card supply - DONE! (And I am SO excited to send some of these this year!)

 

Looking forward to February, I'll be focusing on these goals:
