To Be Read Tuesday – August 2016

To Be ReadTuesday

 

The first Tuesday of every month, I’m going to share what I plan to read for the month. Sometimes they’ll be motivational, personal development, or business-related books, but most times I’ve got my face stuck in something fictional! I’m a bookworm through and through, and I read a bit of everything.…

August Goals

Each month, I want to share my goals with you so that you can see what I’m working on. I’ll list a few goals that I want to accomplish during the month, as well as steps I’m going to take to reach them.

Personal Goals

Pick up German again (I neglected studying through June and July – not good!)

  • Get through part 1 of the B1 Deutsche Welle online course
  • Write down all new vocabulary words and review daily
  • Use those words to create videos each week to practice speaking
  • Practice with a tutor on Italki
  • Continue writing letters to my German and Swiss penpals
  • Goal: At least 30 minutes daily, when I wake up

Start learning Spanish

  • Learn the basics through a combination of books (Living Language, Spanish Made Simple, Spanish Demystified) and podcasts
  • Be able to introduce myself, describe where I come from and what I do for a living, ask simple questions, and engage in polite small talk
  • Use my new words and phrases to create videos of myself speaking each week
  • Be able to speak in the present and past tense by the end of the month
  • Be ready to have my first language exchange with a native speaker at the end of the month
  • Goal: At least 30 minutes daily, in the morning, after German

Figure out my new weekly schedule

  • Figure out how many hours per week I’m spending with each of my virtual assistant/writing clients
  • Keep a set schedule four days per week for my massage clients
  • Schedule set times for free time — I was seriously lacking in work/play balance during July

Read one book per week

  • Also extremely neglected in July.

Goal Setting: A Glimpse of Mine and How to Set Yours

Hello and welcome to my shiny new blog! I want to start this blog off talking about the #1 thing that has helped and is helping me achieve everything that this blog is about: goal setting.

How I Set Goals

I set goals at the beginning of each new year–things I hope to accomplish in the following 365 days–but since I began using Passion Planner, I also set long-term goals and reevaluate my goals mid-year.…
