  1. My biggest obstacle is managing time. It just seems to fly by doesn’t it. I really want to put more structure to my life, meaning I find time to go to a fitness class, find work, manage my blog and spend quality time with my daughter. I think I need to make a plan list!

    • The Growing Mum says:

      Lists are definitely the way to go. I’ve just bunged a few blog ideas in a Google calendar so far and it feels so good.

  2. jenny says:

    I love planning. I’ve already stocked up on my planners and diaries for 2018!

    • The Growing Mum says:

      I love dairies and planners but I always lose enthusiasm after a few months so they sit there looking pretty and dusty hahaha. Doesn’t stop me buying them though and this year I’m going down the notebook route

  3. I really need to manage my time better (and shift two stone)! I agree that regular checks are a must to help stay on track

  4. I love that you have started working on your goals.I totally agree, no need to sit until the 1st.

    Time management has never been a problem for me when I have set goals but of late its the lack of motivation that seems to be throwing me off. I too don’t set resolutions only monthly goals. Good luck with your plans for the New Year

    • The Growing Mum says:

      Monthly goals sounds like a very good idea. Hope you get sorted on the motivation front this year and maybe focus on things that bring you more joy 🙂

  6. I am definitely guilty of not always using my time wisely too. I hope 2018 is everything you hope that it will be x

  7. Kara says:

    I haven’t written my goals down yet, I tend to plod along, but do need a focus and a plan. I co-run a networking group called lemur linkup at Lemur Landings one Monday a month and our first chat is about goal setting, would love it if you came along 🙂

  8. MissPond says:

    I haven’t set any goals for 2018 yet but you’ve inspired me too. I wish you a fantastic new year 🙂

  9. yeahlifestyle says:

    We find working on goals and planning for the next year is so important, as we tend to forget what we wanted to achieve otherwise

  10. Yes, I’ve thought about my goals and hopes for next year. I agree that regular checkpoints can be helpful.

  11. I struggle with time management too, it’s definutely on my list of things to master in 2018 x

  12. Time management is my weak point as well,I have to get back on schedule soon as my sabbatical is ending soon.

  13. alan moore says:

    I am a list lover. Especially when there are time constraints and the pressure builds up. Master lists and a lot of other things fall into place.

  14. Emma says:

    I think the start of the year is a good time of year to think about what I want to achieve over the year. We drove across Europe with two young children last year and it was amazing! Have a wonderful time.

  15. Healthy and Psyched says:

    I really like that quote about time. I often get stressed that I don’t have enough time for things and then I end up being so anxious that I procrastinate rather than just getting things done. Knowing there is time for everything, working at a steady pace and being organised would be a lot more helpful .

  16. katykicker says:

    Best of luck for the year ahead! I love being organised. I’m going to be running a weekly linky (Katykicker) on a Friday if you fancy joining in – it will be for meal planning! x

  17. I am looking forward to reading more about you achieving these hopes and dreams in 2018. My main hope is to organise my time a little better and pre-schedule things…

  18. kirstyralph11 says:

    I really hope everything foes well for you this year and breaking down goals is something I find helps you achieve them better. I’ve got quite a lot planned for this year that I’ve had to write 2 seperate plans!

  19. Hannah says:

    I can’t wait to hear about how you get on. Best wishes for 2018!

  20. Laura Dove says:

    Good luck for the year ahead! My plan is to get organised and plan my time better than I have already this year!

  21. Hannah says:

    All the best for 2018 and hopefully you will achieve what you want

  22. sparkles81 says:

    All the best for the new year and good luck with your goals! x

  23. When I read posts like these ,I really wish I had taken the initiative to make a plan as this but I didn’t . Your plan sounds super organised, well planned and I really hope that you achieve all of it.

  24. I love to plan, organize and set goals. Because I set short term goals, it is easier to achieve them and be proud of success.

  25. Elizabeth says:

    Sounds like you have a fab year planned! Wishing you all the best for 2018 🙂

  26. thestyletune says:

    I am really bad with plans because life always comes up with a different surprise!! But even the smallest of plans i make my husband is my accountability buddy!

    • The Growing Mum says:

      Surprises keep us on our toes don’t they?! I’m never rigid with my plans – like today I’ve not bothered sticking with the scheduled lunch hahaha.

  27. I intend to set monthly goals and see how I get on. Good luck with your goals.

  28. glamglitzgloss says:

    I’m definitely going with goals and plans instead of resolutions, I feel like as soon as the word resolution is thrown out it’s like a race against time till I fail them all. I definitely need to focus more on managing my time better too, good luck with your goals and hopes

  29. Linda says:

    My main goal is to learn to be at peace with where I am. As you get older (just to offer a contrary view), you realise that life goes so fast, enjoying the day and not getting hung up on plans is just as valid as having an intricately plotted life plan.

    • The Growing Mum says:

      I guess it depends on the phase of life you’re in. Now that I have a child, I wouldn’t cope with no plans. I try to make them as flexible as possible otherwise you’re right, you’ll just get hung up on the detail and lose the biggest picture 🙂

  30. Emily Leary says:

    I love this. Much more positive than lofty, impossible resolutions. My main goal is to complete a project I’ve been working on for the last year and actually get it ‘out there’!

  31. I think this time is really useful especially when it comes to writing a blog. Have a sense of direction and some goals, personal or otherwise certainly help to keep us on track

  32. Accidental Hipster Mum says:

    I’m so bad at time management and planning. I think my time management is probably poor because I never plan! I have started setting myself monthly goals and I intend to carry it on through 2018.

    Thank you for linking up with #RVHT
