Happy 2018, y’all! We’ve made it!!!!
Today is the first day of the new year and I am so incredibly excited. Last year I kicked the year off by sharing how I used a bullet journal to keep track of my goals – but guess what. I forgot to actually set goals for the whole year. Monthly goals are fun, but having something bigger you’re working towards helps guide those smaller goals.
So here are my 2018 goals. Setting 10 goals a month is a pretty great number, so I decided to keep the yearly number at 10 as well. They are well-rounded and have actionable ways to track their progress.
- Drop our debt by 33%
We need to go from $23,661.40 to $15,853.14.
- Lose 50 pounds (goodbye cookies) 🙁
- Read 20 books
- Finish a StepBet game
- Become a dōTerra Executive
This is enough to force me to step out of my comfort zone but not unreasonable for what I want in my life.
- Run 101 miles (force myself to do 9 a month)
- Track and reduce my screen time
- Organize my Poshmark inventory
- Set 10 goals a month for a year and complete 90 of 120 of them.
- Memorize “I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud.”
Financial, Physical, Emotional, Mental, Personal… I think we’ve got them all! I usually come up with goals that correlate to the kind of person I WISH I was. My first 101 in 1001 list was 100% that. It was like “run 3 times a week for a whole year.” like… what? That’s not me. So I’m always aware of making goals that push me but don’t require me to become some whole different person.
Have you ever heard of using SMART for coming up with goals? Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time Bound. All of those goals I listed fall under those categories, so I’m really excited to get going on them. Just like my 101 in 1001 list, these goals will help me determine what my monthly goals are! Small monthly goals crushed month after month add up to a year with successful, completed goals.
I’m ready. To get to work on these goals specifically and to also keep moving through my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days!
So how about you. Did you make any goals for 2018? Let me know in the comments! 😀
