Summer To-Do List

Rather than set a few mini goals for July (& August) I thought a to-do list would be simpler. Tasks, not goal’s, is the theme for the next two months!

Summer To-Do:

This is more of a ‘Moving House To-Do List’, but having it here on the blog will help me to stay organised!

Monthly goal setting used to be a habit for me, but for some reason this year I’ve been very inconsistent with it. It’s probably got something to do with shutting down Move to Portugal, where I would always post my monthly mini goals, and then making the decision to sell our house – selling up changes nearly all of our long-term financial goals.

The Castle of the Moors, Sintra, Portugal

Things are changing (all good I might add), but we still have a long way to go to secure our financial future and I don’t want to take my foot off the gas. Setting goals, long-term and/or short-term, leads to progress, and so I need to get back to setting them……..consistently!

As a side note I also need to revisit my annual goals as they seem to have gone by the wayside in the last few weeks!

Ok that’s it! Do you set monthly goals?
