How I Plan for April & What Did I Achieve in March

Hello, guys. I hope you are having a wonderful day. April is here and with the new month comes a new start with new plans and goals or a fresh start for the old plans that need to be improved.

First thing you obviously need is a good old planner or what nowadays is called - a bullet journal.

Journalling or writing down your plans isn't only a great way to stay organized, but it's also a very fun process which I really enjoy. This new journal I got from my best friend K for my birthday, it's not an expensive gift, but it certainly means the world to me since it symbolizes the new chapter in my life which I was discussing a lot about with her.

Now, before I started planning for April, I focused on March and reviewed it. I did pretty well last month, I believe. I got out of my comfort zone, went out a lot, ate moderately healthy, I hope this month goes better when it comes to that etc.

How are you going to do it?

Simply, divide your goals into different categories: health, social, personal development, social media, business or whatever else and write under them the goals that you had and then tick the box if you had accomplished them. 

Then, I wrote down a little more; some accomplishments, things I learned, things I need to work on and other. Here I blurred some things for the sake of privacy, I hope you understand.

 How are you going to do it?

You don't need to copy exactly my questions, ask yourself questions deep down for the previous month, what you need to improve, what you actually did and you are proud of and anything that comes to your mind, be specific, write more than I did if you want, lose yourself in your thoughts for a moment.

Now that I reviewed March, I focused on April and new goals and challenges:

Basically, this month I want to increase last month's successes, work more on my blog by writing posts daily, get healthier and lose 3 kg (I said 5, but I don't know if that is too much), study more and go to a job interview for a local newspaper (we'll see how that goes).

How are you going to do this?

Just write down your to-dos for the month, some events and goals, it's really simple.

And the last, but definitely not the least, is my daily time table planner!

I have to admit, I got this idea from bulletjournal.com. It's the most simple daily log and it makes you even more productive because you are planning hourly, it's better than just writing down a few tasks. 

What happened to me is that I saw how much time in a day I actually had which I haven't realized before and how precious time really is.

I garantee you, this will make you more productive since you become more aware of hours in a day and therefore, you are able to plan smarter.

Before taking these photos I was sitting in my yard and I was reading a book while eating Alpro dark chocolate pudding (not sponsored, but I wish!), it tastes like a regular pudding, but has around 90 calories per 100 grams which is nothing! I definitely recommend for you to buy it and it's not bitter, don't worry!

And yeah, the book is great, I read about fifty pages so far. It's Crime and Punishment by Fjodor Mihajlovič Dostojevski which I believe is a must-read for anyone.

And here is a mirror selfie of today. Sorry for the mess behind, soon I'll make some changes in my room so, stay tuned because I'll definitely post it.
