October 2016 Goals + Reflections



Usually during the month of September, I forget about my yearly goals and I get trapped in a routine, so to fix that I made a chart to see how I am spending my time. This was to allow me to see if I was spending my time wisely. The chart is below:


Taken from: https://www.themuse.com/advice/the-easiest-way-to-see-if-youre-spending-your-time-right

In addition to this chart, I would like to create a weekly chart to see how much time I’m spending with those I love to ensure I am also counting my social needs! I’ve decided from looking at my chart that I’m sleeping too much. I need to cut my nap and only make it a 20 min nap. Lastly, I should at least workout 1 hr a day, but if possible to make it two hours.
