If there’ s one thing I’m learning as I start this journey of intentional living and spending, it’s the vital importance of having a plan. (I love the idea I read in one of Dave Ramsey’s books that if you aim at nothing, you’ll definitely end up there!) And because a long-range plan can be intimidating and hard to stick to – especially for born procrastinators like myself – it’s very helpful to break it down into smaller goals. (Yes, I realize that none of this new, but I’m just now embracing it for myself.) With that in mind, here are my goals for the month of May (inspired by The Budget Mama’s goal update #4 post):
- Earn $300 through “side hustles”. (Tomorrow is my last day of work until September, as discussed here. This means a four-month break in my regular paychecks.)
- Write four blog posts each week.
- Read one book each week.
- Exercise three days per week.
- Decrease our total credit card debt by $500.
What do you think? What are your goals for this month?
