Behind-the-Scenes: My Blog & Life Goals For October 2015

Oh October. I've gotta' say, I'm very excited for you.

Lots of good things happened in September, but it was tough and bitty. Now, things can properly start and I can't wait. The biggest thing that's happened is that I've started my new permanent job as Marketing Co-ordinator for a sixth form College. Which means that I now officially get a permanent pay check each month! You wouldn't think this to be such a big deal - but coming from someone who hasn't had a consistent pay check in months, it is!

Setting goals at the start of the month is a great way to align my work with the things in life that matter to me the most. Plus, sharing them with you motivates me even more to complete them, and I love reading about the goals you set for yourself too.

Today, we're diving into how I got on in September as well as the goals I'll be working towards during October.

July Goals & The Month In Review

Summer is here!

Please tell me you’ve been getting some of the lovely warm weather that’s been making its way around these parts? I hope you have and I hope you’ve had the chance to enjoy it. As for me, it’s confirming that I hate being restricted to working in one place. I’m trying my hardest not to look out of the office window and I wish I worked somewhere that I’d be able to walk to.

Anyway, as I was writing this post, I kind of realised that I’d set these goals without thinking about the holiday I’ve just come back from. It’s never as simple as just going on holiday, is it? It seems in the few weeks leading up to it, all your free time is spent preparing for it! I think my goals weren’t very focused last month.

But here’s how it went:

May: A Month In Review

I’m going to skip over the part where I freak out because we’re halfway through the year and get straight to it.

So – welcome to the final post of May where I review everything that’s happened in the world of A Branch of Holly this month. I did think about scrapping this monthly series, but after some lovely words from my readers I’ve decided to keep it. I hope you can gain plenty of encouragement and inspiration from this, and also take a look at any behind-the-scenes action.

Let’s see how we got on then!

April: A Month In Review

Welcome to my collection of April goals, and a new extended version of this post.

Recently, I decided I was going to introduce a feature called Week In Review. But I've chosen to leave that for the time being, which you’ll find out about later. So I thought it would be good to include a review in my usual goals post. I think you’ll enjoy this if you like seeing an insight into other people's goals and progress; you need to be inspired to create your own goals, and you like a bit of behind the scenes action.

Setting Goals For 2015 - A Man's Perspective

I've got a confession to make - all the blogs I read are written by women. Most of the people I follow on social media are women, and most of the people I talk to on Twitter are women. But whenever I read a piece of content written by a man, I'm intrigued and entertained. Which leads me nicely on today's post...

There is officially a new writer to the blog - my partner in crime, Tom.

March Goals: Creating, Considering & Clothes Shopping

Welcome to my next set of monthly goals! Can you believe it's nearly the end of February? Time is going quickly, but I've actually been really looking forward to the end of this month, mainly because this weekend I'll be living it up in Newcastle. It's always really refreshing to get a new change of scenery and it's also a great time for reflection.
