How to Plan the New Month Ahead
The beginning of a new month is the perfect opportunity for a fresh start. It’s time to take a step back reflect on what went well for you and what you should improve. And in honour of planner day, let’s sit down and go through what you have accomplished thus far and what are the goals you haven’t reached yet. To start the month of August strong, here’s a step-by-step guide to kick it off with the right plan.
STEP 1. Take a step back
Before planning the month ahead, it’s important to look back at the month that just went by and how have you been able to reach your goals. Dive into a deep introspection of how you went about it all. You need to be analytic & in-tune with your spirit. Start by asking yourself some questions and compose answers that are positive, insightful, and motivating to you.
STEP 2. Set you next goals
Setting small realistic goals at the start of a new month is a great way to keep track of your progress for your ultimate annual goals. A good practice is to break down your bigger goals into smaller ones that are more realistic and easier to achieve for every new month. Take some time to write all those goals down in one brainstorming session and make sure to come back to visit them at the beginning of the following month.
STEP 3. Proactively plan the month ahead
Take the initiative to plan in advance, schedule important events and prepare for successful projects. Look ahead to what the upcoming month entails and try to be as much prepared as you can. Proactive planning is about strategically anticipating the course of events to best align them to your objectives instead of just being reactive to situations that are outside of your control. Once you plan your month out, work towards making it happen.
STEP 4. Declutter your space & your mind
Schedule in a deep clean day to keep your workspace organize and clutter-free. Go through your things and get rid of the unnecessary. If your previous organization system wasn’t effective, dare to try something new, you can look at our desk organizers catalog to find what suits best for you. Once your space is organized, set some time for yourself to declutter your mind by releasing all the negativity that has been draining you and focusing your energy on what keeps you motivated.
