Welcome to this month’s post in our series designed to help you do your Month Reviews in your Life Noted planner!
The Life Noted planner (in academic year or January-December formats) is designed to help you set, track, and evaluate your goals all year and incorporate your goal tasks into your everyday life. There are pages to help you do annual and monthly reviews and goal setting.
Every month when it’s time to do your Month Review in your Life Noted planner, I’ll have a new post to give you ideas on how to do the review.
Each month has a new theme. You can pick the theme you like best and do that every month, or you can do the new theme each month, or pick and choose the elements you like from each month’s theme to do your monthly review. Remember, this is all about you! Do what you find most useful.
This month’s theme is Wins. I don’t know about you, but I could do with some positivity and focusing on what went well this month.
A good friend of mine once said, “January is the Monday morning of my year.” I think we could all use a pick me up this time of year!
Look back through your planner, journal, and/ or bullet journal for the past month and ask yourself these questions:
What went well this month? What were my successes?
What went better than I expected it to?
Even if I didn’t completely reach my goals, what were steps I took toward my goals?
When was a time I helped someone this month?
When was a time I figured out a solution to a problem?
What were some fun/ happy times this month?
What were some times when I made someone smile?
Great job! Now take a look at your goals for the upcoming month and see how you can expand on this month’s wins; whatever worked well, do more of that.
The Life Noted month review posts are on the Friday of the last week of that month in your Life Noted planner, right before the monthly review pages. These are not always the last Friday of each month; they are on the Friday of the week before the start of the new month. Follow along in your Life Noted planner and you’ll find that these posts come up just when you need them! They go up on a Friday so you have all weekend to do your month review.
