November 2014 review

As part of my commitment to honesty, I’m writing a series of posts to monitor and share progress as I try to live up to my life values and meet my monthly goals. I’m still learning about self-analysis, so expect these reviews to change over time. I hope you’ll find them interesting and they’ll be a useful guide for to look back at.

At the start of the month, I set out three types of goal:

  1. Journey goals
  2. Value goals
  3. Other goals

I then review my progress against these goals at the end of the month.

Here’s how I got on this month…

Gracious month

In this eighth month of my values challenge, I’m going to focus on learning how to live more graciously. If you’ve missed them, I’ve already worked on happiness, honesty, self-improvement, humility, getting better relationships, relaxation and efficiency so far this year.

I’m trying to make myself a better person.

Throughout this challenge, I’ve sought out the help of people (friends and new acquaintances) who have more experience than me. This month, I want to learn how to thank them – and everyone else I meet.

Efficiency month

In this seventh month of my values challenge, I’m going to focus on learning how to live more efficiently – saving time to live by my other values. If you’ve missed them, I’ve already worked on happiness, honesty, self-improvement, humility, getting better relationships and relaxation so far this year. I’m trying to make myself a better person.

One problem I’ve found that reoccurs every month of this challenge is that of time. It’s tough to juggle learning new things when you have a job, family and projects on the go. This month, I’m going to find ways to make life more efficient in every department.

Relaxation month

In this sixth month of my values challenge, I’m going to focus on learning how to relax and enjoy my life more. If you’ve missed them, I’ve already worked on happiness, honesty, self-improvement, humility and getting better relationships so far this year. I’m trying to make myself a better person.
I know this will be a good month for me to focus on, as I have been guilty in the past of pushing myself too hard to the detriment of my family. When I get started on a project, it tends to take over my life to an unhealthy degree and I choose to spend all my free time working rather than relaxing.
