1. Reflect on And Refine Your Vision

Regular readers know by now that I’m a big proponent of having a long-term life vision. So, you followed my goal-setting advice for January and have a good start crafting yours.

If yes, revisit and refine your vision. If you still need to, start creating the image of your perfect life right away.

To do so, think about the following questions:

  • Where will I work?
  • What should I be skilled at?
  • Where will I live?
  • Who do I spend time with?
  • What am I passionate about?

It’s your life, so think big.

Do not be limited by your thoughts. Instead, become inspired to chase your goals and achieve your dreams.

2. Develop A New Good Daily Habit

Next, consider this old saying: “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” But, of course, I wasn’t there, so I can’t say for sure.

However, I’m confident Rome was built through daily efforts over many days, months, and years.

Think of it this way. Your long-term vision is like building Rome. Furthermore, you will only achieve that vision through daily efforts.

Thus, consider setting a February goal to create one new good daily habit. For example,

  • Get up early in the morning
  • Adopt a positive attitude
  • Act outside your comfort zone

Do you need more ideas? If yes, I’ve got a robust list of daily goal ideas for long-term success.

Okay, let’s switch it up. The following three examples of February goals are related to holidays and special occasions.

3. Organize Your Christmas Memories

Before any more of this year slips away, put a bow on your Christmas memories.

First, organize your photos and images from those gatherings of families and friends.

Second, take note of anyone who remembered you with gifts, cards, or holiday greetings. So, you will include everyone when the next holiday season rolls around.

Finally, take down and pack away any of those remaining holiday decorations. Just in case you haven’t done so already.

4. Make Valentines Day Special

Whether you are married, have a partner, sweet on someone, or none of the above. Everyone has someone in life they can recognize on Valentine’s Day. So set a short-term goal to make it a date night or something else that is special.

Sure, you want to take care of that certain someone. But, if that person has yet to arrive, don’t forget about Mom, Dad, or that fantastic Aunt and Uncle. If nothing else, show them your love!

5. Have A Good Super Bowl Sunday

Next, make your Super Bowl Sunday, well, Super! I don’t care whether you like football or not.

Editors note: I’m not a big fan of Super Bowl parties. However, I like football, so I prefer to watch the game at home with few distractions.

That’s just me. You are welcome to be entirely different.

As I see it, there are four ways to get the most out of Super Bowl Sunday.

First, throw a Super Bowl party. Or, second, go to someone else’s party.

Third, relax and watch the game at home by yourself. Or with a select group of family and friends, my preferred option.

Fourth, avoid the game and game day festivities altogether.

Instead, read a book, watch a movie, or have a nice dinner. After all, Super Bowl hype is getting out of hand anyway!

6. Plan Your Spring Break

It’s February, so spring break is right around the corner. Thus, some advanced planning may be required if you want to take a trip to a popular spring break location.

Even a staycation or keeping the kids busy while they are out of school requires some thought. So, get cracking because it will be time to start packing sooner than you think.

Okay. I’ve covered post-Christmas clean-up, Valentine’s Day, Super Bowl Sunday, and planning for spring break. That’s all the fun goals I have for now.

So, it’s time to consider several practical financial goals for February. So, let’s do that next.

7. Reassess Your Budget

For your January goals, I recommended reducing non-essential spending. The beginning of the year is the perfect time to cut costs after enjoying a holiday spending spree.

However, February is the time to take stock and see how you did. So, reassess your January spending and monthly budget for February. Take note of your credit card debt.

Engage in good financial goal-setting to make February another no-spend or low-spend month. Then, use the savings to pay down credit card debt if you have any.

Furthermore, for anything you buy online, use Rakuten for cash-back rebates. It’s a great way to trim a little fat out of your budget for your online purchases.

Rakuten also pays a cash reward for making your first purchase. It’s free money! And why pay more if you don’t have to? You can learn more about Rakuten here.

8. Organize Your Tax Documents

It’s February, so that means most, if not all, of your prior year’s tax documents are ready. So, whether you prepare your tax returns or have an accountant do so, get your tax documents organized.

Here is how I go about it.

I grab an empty file folder and lay it off on the side of my desk. Then, as documents arrive in the mail, I throw them in the file.

Later, I set aside an hour to locate any documents provided online. Then, I print them and put them into the file, ensuring everything I need is there and neatly organized.

Doing these things saves time and makes tax return prep much more effortless next month.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not a big fan of doing taxes. However, I’m a Certified Public Accountant, so I still prepare my returns using tax software.

9. Read A Book About Personal Finance

Since taxes and other vital personal financial activities are on your mind, pick up a book about money management or investing.

Please give it a good read. For most people, this is an excellent area for self-improvement.

Last but not least one of my favorite types of goals.

10. Emphasize Self-Care

Finally, set a February goal to take good care of yourself. After all, you are your most valuable asset.

You probably know what to emphasize, however here are some questions to ponder:

  • Are you at your ideal weight?
  • Do you plan meals for better nutrition?
  • Is your exercise routine effective?
  • Do you have a work-life balance?

If you answered no to any of these questions, make a February goal to improve the situation.

Okay. That completes my review of 10 examples of February goals to kick your life into high gear.

Next, as I promised at the beginning of the article, I will cover two additional essential topics.

First, explain why these and other ideas for February goals are vital. Second, provide tips for setting your new month new goals for February.

Why February Goals Are Important

As I see it, there are three reasons goal setting is vital for success during February.

First, New Year’s resolutions are overhyped. However, by the time February rolls around, you have had a chance to think and reassess your life.

Furthermore, you can build upon your success from January by recommitting to your new goals in February. Or, reconsider your January plans to see where you fell short.

Second, January can be a tough month for many of us. The post-holiday hangover is real. However, when February comes, you have had a chance to readjust to your routine.

Third, setting goals should be more than a one-time-a-year event. The most successful people continue to set goals, evaluate progress, and set new goals as their circumstances dictate.

How To Set February Goals

There are several things to consider when setting monthly goals.

First, ensure your new month goals align with your long-term vision.

Second, prioritize because you only have a month to accomplish what you desire. Furthermore, February is a short month with only 28 days unless it’s a leap year when there are 29.

Third, take decisive action. Procrastinating on your February goals is a sure recipe for failure.

Finally, assess your progress weekly and adapt your plans as you see fit.

Okay. Now you know about February goals examples and February goal setting. However, that’s all I have for today.

So, please allow me to wrap up with a few parting thoughts.

Wrap-Up: Setting February Goals For Personal Growth

February is a great time to build upon your January success and shore up any shortfalls before March. Remember that minor, meaningful monthly improvements become the building blocks for long-term success.

No, Rome was not built in a day. But, I guarantee the Roman’s worked hard every day and every month until they built the city of their dreams.

So, get busy each day in February. Build your best life on top of a strong foundation for success from February’s goals.
