According to my lifestyle, I am not an unplanned person, so I never left the yacht of life on the will of external wind waves. I always set small goals for a specific period. Today is the last day of April and I have tried to review my last month’s progress and plan my goals for May 2020, that what I want to accomplish in May?
My Goals for May 2020
For the planning of your month, it is important that you must be clear about your targets and resources. If you are not clear about your work and resources, you could not plan and achieve your goals.
Planning should be according to time, skills, and resources, more expectations can be the reasons of frustration in your life. If you would like to make your dreams come true, then plan your days, don’t wait for years.
Review of April 2020
Almost the whole world was under lockdown due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. I also spend the month at home. We have also stopped work since mid of March, stayed home till April. During the period of working from home, this April teaches so many lessons, felt the fear of unemployment, control on unnecessary expenses, how to avoid unnecessary meetings/gatherings, felt the fear of food insecurity (the stopped supply due to lockdown), survive in limited resources, no travel, full day staying at home, no any gathering with friends.
Things that went well in April 2020
For the last many years, my wife has been recording our all expenses for staying within budget, but this time she budgeted the monthly expenses according to income because we are still living within monthly income. I supported her to finalize the budget and controlling the unnecessary expenses. Because this pandemic also affected our income too, and I have also provided some amount in the welfare account for providing food items to COVID-19 affected poor families. Today, we reviewed that, we have not crossed the budget line and our planning worked well.
Due to lockdown, I continued the evening walk at the rooftop of my house, the space is enough for a walk and some yoga exercises.
The time was enough to plan blog posts, so initially planned 28 posts for April 2020. Before this, it was not possible to write, edit, design, and publish a daily blog post for me due to workload at the office and ongoing education project.
During the period the schools are also off so my daughter and son also helped to achieve the target and I have published 26 blog posts in April 2020.
Social Media Posting:
I have maintained Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram accounts efficiently and posted new blog posts regularly. It was the responsibility of my son Mr. Janus and Daughter Bhasah to check the feedback of readers, reply to their comments and drop comments of different blog posts on behalf of “World in Eyes” they performed their responsibilities very well.
Enough time (Lockdown)
It was also the positive side of this period that, spend a good time with family, enough rest, more working on a website (worldliness), reading new books, and writing regularly. So, during April 2020, I have published a total of 26 blog posts which is a good number, read four new books, numerous articles, and blog posts of blogger friends.
To Complete Professional Tasks:
It was a tough job to work from home and complete the tasks but I have completed my official tasks on a priority basis but my few targets affected due to fieldwork suspended, closed education sector, schools, markest, and transport.
To start reading again:
I have completed the reading of four books, more than a hundred blogs/articles during this month.
Things that didn’t go as well in April 2020
Visit or tour
After returning from Nepal, it was planned to go to visit any historical place with family during this spring and explore the spring beauty and historical background of that place. Coming three months of summer from May to July is not a suitable time for tourism except to visit any waterpark.
Change in daily routine
Late-night working and watching some movies and drama serials impacted the daily routine.
What I want to accomplish in May 2020
Read at least two books:
I would like to read two books in May 2020, including the new Urdu translation of Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind is a book by Yuval Noah Harari, first published in Hebrew in Israel in 2011 based on a series of lectures Harari taught at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and in English.
The financial year 2019-20 will be close on June 30, 2020, so I have to finalize the record of all income tax clients. For submitting their income tax return files in July 2020.
30 Days 30 Blogs:
