A Sneak Peek-NYAC

Hey, Chicks!


October’s Motto is…

The best way to predict the future is to create it!! 

 Nice.  I really like that and it falls seamlessly into place with where I’m at in the scheme of things with this life of mine.

October 2018 motto and goals-NYAC

October’s Realistic Goals

This month I broke my goals into three categories.  Regardless of last months fails, I will achieve those I set this month!  The three categories are:

  • Personal
  • Blogs
  • NYAC

Personal is for work and home, soccer and other child activities.  Blogs is what I want to achieve with both blogs this month and NYAC is for creating.  I have a feeling that breaking life down into these categories will make it easier for me.  Last month was too broad and I didn’t take anything into account when I made September’s goals,  I just whipped ’em up out of thin air and we see where that got me!

October’s Goals


  •  Save $10.00 a shift for Christmas shopping until Black Friday.
  • Smile more 🙂
  • Make Christmas list of makes
  • Make request off list for days needed off for soccer games and tournaments.  Write in the request off book.
  • Be a better friend.


  • Add links to old posts.  Update information.
  • Keep posting on schedule on NYAC and at least once a week on my personal blog.
  • Reblog a post on Saturdays on NYAC.


  • Complete Septembers tasks of making journals from start to finish.
  • Stock up on backgrounds.
  • Collect groups of papers to make signatures.

Let’s see how this approach works.  Already it seems more reasonable as well as attainable.  I did, however, have a successful No Spend Week the last week of September.  I had to prove to myself that I could have self-control.

Chick tip: Writing your goals down makes you 40% more likely to achieve.  (affiliate link)
