Welcome to this month’s post in our series designed to help you do your Month Reviews in your Life Noted planner!
The Life Noted planner (in academic year or January-December formats) is designed to help you set, track, and evaluate your goals all year and incorporate your goal tasks into your everyday life. There are pages to help you do annual and monthly reviews and goal setting.
Every month when it’s time to do your Month Review in your Life Noted planner, I’ll have a new post to give you ideas on how to do the review.
Each month has a new theme. You can pick the theme you like best and do that every month, or you can do the new theme each month, or pick and choose the elements you like from each month’s theme to do your monthly review. Remember, this is all about you! Do what you find most useful.
This month’s theme is all about relationships. This might not be the theme you would expect to see for the last month of the year. But relationships are important, and affect everything we do. And during the holidays, the good and the bad of all our relationships comes to the forefront. So this month we are going to focus on how your relationships (with your family, friends, co-workers, boss, teachers etc.) affect your life.
Look back through the past month in your planner, journal, and/ or bullet journal and ask yourself the following questions:
What are the most important relationships in my life?
What do these people do for me?
What do I do for these people?
What did I learn about and/ or from these relationships this month?
How did I improve my relationships this month?
How could I have communicated with people better this month?
In what ways would I like to improve my relationships?
What did I do well in my relationships this month?
None of us functions in isolation. Think about how your relationships can help you reach your goals and be your best self. Now incorporate these into your goals for the upcoming month and year.
The Life Noted month review posts are on the Friday of the last week of that month in your Life Noted planner, right before the monthly review pages. These are not always the last Friday of each month; they are on the Friday of the week before the start of the new month. Follow along in your Life Noted planner and you’ll find that these posts come up just when you need them! They go up on a Friday so you have all weekend to do your month review.
