As we move into June it’s a crucial time to reflect on the past month and plan for the future.

In last night’s  training with my mentor Paul O’Mahony, we delved into the significance of both long-term and short-term planning.

Here’s a summary of key takeaways and some insights to help you move forward.

Looking Back at May

Reflecting on the past month is essential. It allows us to see what worked, what didn’t, and how you can improve. Ask yourself:

What were your achievements?

What challenges did you face?

How did you handle them?

What can you do better next time?

Planning for June

Planning is not just about setting goals; it’s about creating a roadmap to achieve them. Here are some steps to get you started:

Set Clear Goals: Define what you want to achieve in June. Make sure your goals are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (SMART).

Break Down Tasks: Divide your goals into smaller, manageable tasks. This makes it easier to track progress and stay motivated.

Allocate Time: Schedule time for each task. Be realistic about how long things will take and make sure to include breaks.

Remember Why You’re Doing This

Always keep in mind the reason behind your efforts. Remind yourself of the seriousness of achieving your dream life. Your aim is to disconnect your income from any specific location, allowing you to work from anywhere. This flexibility is a key advantage of affiliate marketing and other online businesses.

Time Management Tools

If you need help planning your time and believe me, just a few years ago I needed just this, consider using tools like the Rethink Planner.   If you scroll down that page there are some free videos and an eBook you can read about planning and goals etc.  I think the physical planners are a bit expensive although they will shortly be available in a paperback version bringing the costs down by about 40%  however I have permission to share a link where you can download a free template for use on a tablet. Simply go to  and download the file for the current quarter.   I’m not an affiliate for this as there is no affiliate program for it.

This can be a valuable resource to keep you organized and focused.

The RETHINK Acronym plus Fun

The Rethink planning system concentrates on planning and setting goals around seven key areas, summarized by the R-E-T-H-I-N-K acronym:

Relationships: Focus on building and nurturing your connections.

Earnings: Plan your financial goals and strategies.

Tao (Spirituality): Maintain a connection with your inner self and beliefs.

Health: Prioritize your physical and mental well-being.

Investments: Plan for your financial future through smart investments.

Networks: Expand and leverage your professional network.

Knowledge: Continually seek to learn and grow.

Fun: Don’t forget to include fun in your life. It’s essential for maintaining balance and happiness.

By focusing on these areas, you can create a balanced and fulfilling life.


Reflecting on May and planning for June (or any monthly transition)  is not just an exercise, it’s a crucial step towards achieving your dream life. Stay focused, keep your goals in sight, and remember that every small step counts. Here’s to a successful June and beyond!
