10 Things To Do At The End Of Every Month

Hey loves, it’s the end of the month already. This month went by fast just like the way the year is. You need to still be productive irrespective of what’s going on. So continue reading to find out the productive things you should do at the end of each month to have a more productive month after.

Review Your Goals

The first thing you want to do is to sit with your goals, reflect on them, review them. Take a good look at what you’ve been able to accomplish and go through them. Assess and review your goals. I made a post on that, be sure to check it out because it’s really important and informative .

Make A List Of Unfinished Work

If you didn’t get to accomplish all your goals for the month, don’t fret. Make a list of all the things you couldn’t get done. Found out why you didn’t get them done, were you stressed out, were you lacking motivation, were you overwhelmed with work? Know why you couldn’t complete the tasks and figure out a way to work on them. Again my post on how to review your goals talks about this.

Set New Goals

It’s another month, what do you want to get done in the new month? What are the other goals you are hoping to accomplish? Set new goals and come up with action plans for them. If you don’t know how to set goals or how to go about it. Check these out:

How To Set Goals And Achieve Them

10 questions to ask yourself when setting your goals

Think Of A Positive Habit You Want To Establish

You know a negative habit that you have. Why don’t you take this new month to work on them. Change your negative habits to positive ones one habit at a time. If you notice that you procrastinate a lot, focus on being consistent. If you think negative thoughts or have negative self talks turn them into positive thoughts and affirmations. Change your eating habits, always staying up late to chat or watch TV especially when it’s not adding any impact on your life, change your sleeping habits. Change that negative habit that you have and channel them to positive ones. Instead of staying up late at night sacrificing your sleep actually sleep and if you don’t want to, do something productive instead, get some work done. Consciously work on fixing a negative habit you have in the next month.

Look For Ways To Improve Yourself

No one is perfect, we are all lacking in something. No one knows it all. Strive to be better and do better in the next month. Invest in yourself, learn a skill, take a course, read a book, attend webinars etc. Continuously strive to be better and improve your relationship with others be it your workers, family, friends, partners and others. Work on your mindset, change your perspective and take deliberate actions to work on yourself.

Have A Deep Interaction With Yourself

Look within yourself and ask yourself some deep questions. The life you are living right now is that what you want, are you doing things that can get you there? What are your future plans, what can you do to get yourself to where you have to be?

Ask yourself these questions or any that comes to your mind and sit down, take a book and pen to answer your questions. You might just find the answer you want by looking within and you will definitely have a clearer picture of the things you need to do.

Rate All The Areas Of Your Life

Take a pen and paper and rate yourself. Rate the various areas of your life, it could be over ten or over hundred depending on your choice but be honest with yourself for the answers. What’s your spiritual life like, what will you rate your relationship with your partner, family or friends, what will you rate your finances, your health , your academics? Be completely honest with yourself and don’t be ashamed if the score is not good just know that the area needs to be worked on. Doing this will definitely make you better in the next month.

Reflect On Your Spending

Hold yourself accountable. Know how you spend your money. You want to reflect on your spending to see if you have the right spending habits, to know what you use your money to do. Reflecting on your spendings can help you save more when you know the areas you need to work on so definitely reflect on your spendings from time to time so you will know the habits to cut down.

Count Your Blessings

Be grateful for the opportunity to see the end of the month and the start of another, people lost their lives before the month ended but you are still alive. One thing I’m always grateful for is the gift of life, no matter what I’m going through I believe that as long as there is life, there is hope. So be thankful for life, be thankful for the opportunities you got in the month, whether it’s the new job or the sales of your product, be thankful, count your blessings, it will surprise you what the Lord has done.

I have a lot of things to be grateful for this month, the mere fact that I could accomplish my goal makes me thankful and the opportunities that came with this month too.

You should also list your accomplishments. You might be feeling like you didn’t get any work done or nothing spectacular happened this month but if you think deep something probably did. It might be surviving a sickness or accident or even paying your bills or getting to meet some people so always be thankful.

Reward Yourself

Get something you want and need. I believe in setting reward systems for a job well done even if it is for the smallest tasks. Buy that dress, try out that new restaurant, take a vacation somewhere, go out with friends, take a break, buy that thing that you’ve been saying you will buy. Reward yourself with your heart desires, you deserve it.

So there you have it, ten productive things to do at the end of the month to start the next month right.

I think being proud of my accomplishment is a big one for me. I also look how much I messed up in the month, but I need to take a new look on the months for myself. Thank you for this wonderful blog post! I also love how you mentioned the Lord on this!

Nianni, you have created the perfect list for the end of the month. I always look back at my accomplishments and failures each month. Setting new goals and reassessing the plan keeps me moving forward. Thank you for this great reminder. Stay safe.

Great suggestions! A lot of people set big, lofty goals only to forget to follow up on them later. The only way to find out if you are moving forward is to take a step back, reflect on your progress, and reassess the path that you’re traveling. They often overlooked secret of success.

Yes, it’s so easy to set goals but most of the time we don’t like putting the work or going back to review our progress or setbacks and indeed they are the secrets of success. Thanks for reading. 💯

Hi Nianni. Some worthy suggestions in that list. I think that “Count Your Blessings” is particularly important – most of us have so much to be thankful for but we rarely give it a second thought. Evaluate what you have (including immaterial things like friendships) and be grateful – it’ll make you far happier than envying what somebody else has!

Having a start/end of month review is so important! I keep a Bullet Journal, so each month needs to be drawn up and I reflect on what I need to focus on for the coming month and transfer across anything unfinished. Aside from my bullet journal, I also do a financial summary each month which (as an excel nerd) I find really satisfying! I hope your prep for October has gone well and you have a great month!
