Instead of a monthly review post I decided to try something different this year: one post that I am going to update at the end of every month with an overview of my goals of the next month and a review of what I did that last month.
I realized at the end of last year that while I enjoyed the retrospective my monthly review posts offered me, I had no way of looking at the big picture of the year and that bothered me. I'm hoping that this approach will help me gain a better perspective of what's been going on during the year while we're in the middle of it as well as at the end of 2018.
If you're more of a picture person, scroll down to the end of this post - I'll put together a few photos for every month there!
Finish planning the year
