I have never been good at setting achievable New Year's resolutions. During 2013, for example, my resolution list consistent of the following:
Have a Baby
While it just so happened to work out that I checked both things off my list last year, I didn't exactly choose goals that were well within my control. Last year's goals are just one example . Usually I scrawl out a list of goals on New Year's day that are vague or impossible. "Be a better person" and "Get to the Olympics" are repeat offenders (you get the gist).
This year , though, I am proud to announce that I did things differently. This year I wrote down those vague and seemingly impossible goals and turned them into a list of projects that I knew I could complete.
I took " Be more cultural/artsy" and turned it into "Start a Book Club". "Be a better person" became "Put on a talent show for charity." See the full list
-Start a Videography Business
-Finish Writing a Motherhood Poetry Book
-Lose 40 lbs (baby weight)
-Put on a talent show for charity.
-Take a personal finance course
-Read 3 medium level books in Spanish
-Start a book club
I am writing about this in July because I am happy to report that I can check off starting a book club and losing 40 pounds. I am working at starting my videography business, writing my poetry book, and taking a personal finance class.
In other words, I am optimistic about checking each of my goals off by December!
How are you doing with your New Year's resolutions? Got any tips for making them doable?
