Does the first of December send a chill down your spine? And not because of dipping temperatures? Does the end of the year send you into a hurry-up- finish-up-why-did-I-take-all-this-on frenzy? Everyone has lots to do, holidays to celebrate, school vacations, end-of-year work duties…
Let’s decide to enjoy this month and all it has to offer without too much frenzitude. Let’s do that by finding ways to make everything easier like… recycling. Use last year’s decorations, wrapping paper, holiday menu, school break program and maybe even a few gifts (Aunt Bertha’s hand-knitted shawl?). And as an example I’m going to recycle a few past Monthly Goalposts that may fit in your own particular frame of mind right now. So if you’re new to Sub It Club or have missed a Goalpost here and there, get ready to click some oldies but goodies.
The Monthly Goalpost
This was the first! For Sub It Club’s newer members, this might be a nice place to start thinking about your goals for the coming year.
The Monthly Goalpost for April (featuring The March Dip)
Yes! I know—it’s December but this Goalpost is all about flagging motivation and renewing it. It’s not just for March anymore!
The Monthly Goalpost for May: Brought to you by the letters O, P, Q, R, and S
There’s nothing about Sesame Street here—but there is a discussion of procrastination, overcoming obstacles and crit partners. Might be just what December needs!

Who can resist kitchen timers that make you sit down and do your work?
