Goals for the Month - January - 2018 - Month end Review

One month passed... It was really very looong month.... Had to face many unpleasant things... Anyway, I am not going in that direction now. Here are my January goals listed.

  • Exercise :
I will start with Exercise. I have to take care of my parents health and obviously mine too.

  • Walking Challenge-- This is  somewhat similar as last month's 255555 steps challenge. But change here is I am supposed to walk EVERY day. So the steps are divided to every single day. This is going to be really tough rather problematic on weekends and the days when I am stuck at one place all day like training workshops etc.  -- God... first one only failed... Okay... so here the actual result... I did very well in this... but only because one day I missed my steps and I failed this challenge. The long weekend near end of the month it was day where I was in car for 15 hours. Whenever we took breaks from driving, I did walk but I couldn't make those required steps before midnight and I lost by some around 3000 steps that day. I lost the challenge because of this day and hence lost my $50 as well. :( Those particular hours when I was in car and I knew I had to walk so much steps and I did reach my destination before half an hour to midnight. I still walked steps in that half an hour but I couldn't make it. I had to walk many more steps. I knew that half an hour that I was going to fail but still I was trying hard. But still missed with 3000 steps. Anyway, I take all the blame to my planning. I could have planned this driving day better for walk. I could have gotten up earlier in morning and do the steps or something like that. -- 98% Failed but Done. 

  • Drinking 4 liters of Water daily – 4 liters including weekends. -- Okay... 60% . Have to focus on this. 
  • Drinking Milk Daily -- 22 days minimum. -- Done 100%. I guess I can take next step for this goal now. 

  • Pranayam -- I will start easy. I will do something daily. -- 20%. Failed. I just this a couple of days. I even downloaded a mobile app but after couple of days I have not even opened it. 

  • Sleep -- I am not getting enough sleep and this may be causing health issues. My hair-fall especially. I am not sure while writing what exactly I can do to get quality sleep so that it would be enough even if its lesser hours. -- I don't know. Not improved much but little bit better than nothing. 20% Failed

  • Reading and Writing :
Last couple of months I have got so many things in my list that I want to read. I want to spend time in reading and writing instead of wasting it here and there.
  • Some course at workplace - Get some cool training at workplace.  -- 100% Done

  • Read and Review – Reading 3 books and submit their review. -- 2 Books done, thirds review is in re-work. -- 70% Done

  • Update new website with content. -- 0% Not done
  • SEUs— Earning 15 SEUs. And this should be from at least 2 different categories.  -- I earned 10 but only from one category. I have to consult my seems-to-be well wisher at work who I think can guide me for this. 50% In Progress. 

  • Publishing- Search for the options. -- Still in To-Do. 0% Failed.

  • Add last certification in linked in profile. -- 0%. Failed. Not even opened linked in. 
  • Finance Planning :
This I want to make my top priority since couple of months but failing to do so.
  • Tax planning -- This is top priority now. Do this properly. -- Done. 80%. Made some last minute mistakes as well. There are some changes in workplace documentation and other things so next year onward this should be planned differently. 

  • Savings for education fund -- First, create a calendar for existing membership/certification payment deadlines. Creating calendars for payments and putting it somewhere so that it is visible regularly reminds us about those we tend to not miss those payments.  I will save/earn extra to put a number towards this fund.  -- 0% Not done... Failed.  

  • Kids Education Fund -- This is January, so I think good time to start new SIP for him. -- 100% Done

  • Review finances and plan according to the situation and start and stop SIPs, buy/sell accordingly. --  60% Ongoing

  • Shopping :
  • I guess, I should buy few clothes this month. I need them. I can again continue to search for my formal shoes as per my requirement. I also have to use the shoppers stop gift card that I have.  -- Well, I didn't find formal shoes which I wanted but I bought another color formal shoes and matching trousers for it. But I am not wearing it until I have matching jacket on it. So search is still on. 70% In Progress.
  • Life Skills :

  • Class : Inquire about a lifeskill class and if possible join. -- 0% Not done. Actually one of my bestie who wants to join the same skill class suggested me not to join and that I can do it on my own. Seriously? I too feel the same.. But may be I am just too lazy for doing it myself. Let's see.
