As we set goals for the new year, I think it’s also important to reflect on our accomplishments from the previous year. I think we’re all well aware that a calendar doesn’t dictate our success, but it is helpful to have a little encouragement to reassess the past and look forward to the future. I didn’t really set goals last year. As a perfectionist, I’ve had difficulty setting goals in the past. I’m the type of person that doesn’t want to do things unless I’m going to be the best. It’s a huge flaw and I’m constantly working on it, but that’s just my nature.
I’ve actually improved a bit and have come to realize that I don’t have to always achieve my goals. I am now ok with setting goals that I might not reach – because thinking big and striving for the craziest dream you have is the only way to improve. If you’re constantly reaching your goals, you’re not shooting high enough. A goal should challenge you. It should make you step out of your comfort zone and grow like never before. And that’s what I’m going to do this year! Here are some of my goals that are relevant to the blog (the others I’ll keep to myself):
Fitness: Try one new workout per month
One of the main reasons I don’t work out is because I hate it. There is nothing fun to me about sweating and getting tired. BUT, there’s got to be something out there that I would enjoy, right?! So I’m on a mission this year to find that thing. I do actually like yoga, so that’s something I could incorporate into my routine more, but since I’ve never tried any of those trendy workouts like soul cycle or barre, I want to give them a shot! Any recs?
Travel: Go to a new place every month
It doesn’t have to necessarily be a new country every month, but I’m shooting to go to one new place every month this year. It can be something as simple as a weekend trip to a nearby town or even just a new restaurant in another area of town, but I feel like trying new things and going new places is a great way to grow as a person and expand your mind.
Finance: Make $30,000 in one month
I have a lot of financial goals this year, but one that is blog-related is that I want to make $30,000 in one month, which would be $1,000/day. It might sound crazy, but with a goal like that in mind, I’m sure to work my butt off! And hey, making even half of that in a month wouldn’t be too shabby, ya feel me?
Like I said, when setting goals, it’s also important to highlight your accomplishments. Some things I am proud of that I accomplished this year include making it to a new continent (Africa!!! Yay!), signing the biggest contract of my career, and spending more quality time with friends and family. 2018 was amazing and I know 2019 will be as well. After all, it’s all up to me to make it a great year!
