Every year you hear of people who are making their New Year’s resolutions and plan on sticking to them no matter what! Then by Valentine’s Day they have slacked off and often forgotten about them. I have been known to be one of those said people and this year I have decided that I do not want one goal throughout the year, I want several!
I can have a broad goal of getting more physically fit or paying down my debt, but if I don’t have a plan to get there then I won’t ever get there and I will slack off. Plus I am a list person so manually checking something off hopefully will work wonders for me. So I have broken down my ‘big categories’ of goals and will work diligently to complete all of them!
I have my 30 Under 30 list that I am doing for fun, but these goals will help me with making my life where I want it to be. I don’t want to be where I am at currently this time next year. I want to go and do and be. Oh, and BTW feel free to make your own list and send it to me (or send me the link to your blog) and we can keep each other accountable.
Ready? Let’s go!
