October Goals

Well, it’s October. Normally around this time of year I’d be thinking about starting to organize the work Christmas function… but not this year! I’m on holidays, and now that is for someone else to deal with. Hallelujah! It’s a bit of a difficult time for me and my family at the moment, so my motivation levels have been a bit low, but that’s life I guess. Here’s how I went with my goals for last month, along with the list of goals I’m hoping to achieve this month.

September Goals
* Enrol in my diploma of healthcare documentation course (I did it! I’m still waiting for everything to go through, and I have some paperwork to complete, but I should be well on my way to getting started next month)
* Maintain a strict budget, and track all spending (I have been keeping track of my finances on an almost daily basis, and it’s made a huge difference with how much control I feel I have over my money)
* Set my desk up for studying during my three month break
* Focus on skincare, and taking extra care of my skin (I’ve been making more of an effort to take care of my skin, and it’s showing. Which is a good thing, because my skin has been behaving pretty badly lately)
* Write a to-do list for my upcoming time off work (I decided to write daily to-do lists, but I do have a list of projects that I want to get done around the house, so I can turn to that when I’m looking for things to add into my daily routine)
* Make an appointment with the bank to talk about refinancing my mortgage
* Go shopping for “school supplies” for my course

October Goals
* Make an appointment with the bank to talk about refinancing my mortgage

* Go on a girls trip down south
* Weed the entire garden (this has become a bit of a nightmare)
* Start painting the house
* Host an afternoon tea & utilise the new outdoor setting

7 Thoughts on “October Goals

  1. You did so well! Although I would have been all over the school supplies shopping, sometimes I add things I really want to do to my to-do list just so I feel good about myself accomplishing them. 😛

    Good luck for your October goals and enjoy your holidays!

      I was really excited for school supply shopping too, but I figured I actually have everything I need. Best to save some money!

  2. The afternoon tea sounds lovely!!

  3. Yay for tracking spending!! It definitely makes such a difference in our life. And as for skincare, I’ve busted out the Clarisonic I bought years ago and have been using it twice a week – I think it’s helping my skin look better!

      Isn’t it amazing how much of a difference exfoliation makes? You’ve got me ready to bust out my own Clarisonic, which has been gathering dust in my cupboard 🙁
