January Personal Goals Review – Part 2

I am finally back at home after what seems like an extremely long 3 weeks away for work, and so I was taking a look at what I had posted while I was away…

Did you read my last post?  The one where I was supposed to do a monthly review my personal goals for 2018?  Did you wonder what happened to the last 2 goals?  (My original list had 5… My review only covered 3…)

Yeah… Basically, I just flat out forgot about them… And I didn’t take the time to review my blog to make sure I was being consistent… My bad… (Blogging fail!)

So, let’s just quickly correct that. (And yes, I realize that it is almost time to do another monthly review, but whatever…)

January Personal Goals Review

Here we are, over a month in to 2018 already!  How are you doing with your new year’s resolutions or goals?  I am going to try and post a monthly review for accountability on my personal goals.  It may not be the most exciting read, but it’ll help me keep up with my goals, and also give me a better idea of what I need to work on each month…  Of course, I am already quite late in getting this first review out since we are now pretty much half way through February… Oh well…

Let’s get right down to it… Continue reading

Personal Goals for 2018

This post took a bit longer to get written and posted than I had anticipated… I kept getting distracted reading everyone else’s posts on their goals for 2018… I posted my financial goals for 2018 already, and now I want to go over my personal goals for 2018.

Personal Goals for 2018

As I mentioned when I wrote about my financial goals, it is very hard to predict what this year will hold for me, or know how everything will play out with baby-to-be, and so it is very hard to think up personal goals that will be applicable for the whole year.  I was considering only doing monthly goals, but I think I can find a few goals that I can work on all year.  If you followed along with my personal goals from 2017, some of these might seem a little familiar… Continue reading

2017 in Review: Misc. Goals

Winter_Wonderland

As usual, I totally underestimated how busy I’d be over the holidays, so I haven’t finished up all my goals review posts ahead of time, like I thought I would, but here we are on New Year’s Eve, so I figured I’d quickly review my goals for 2017 and see how I did… Then next week I can go over what I want to accomplish in 2018.

For 2017 I gave myself 5 miscellaneous/personal goals.  I did a review back in September, and honestly, I don’t know that I have too much to add my review right now, but I’ll go over each one anyway… Continue reading

Send Love Update

A few weeks ago now, I published a post called “Send Love” and I gave myself the challenge of getting in touch with every person on my friends & family list that I made to keep track of one of my personal goals for 2017: to visit more with friends & family each month.  I said I would get back to you, my readers, in a week with the results…

Well, it has now been over 3 weeks, and so I figure I should make good on that promise and let you know how it has gone…

Send Love…

I read this article last week:  The Only One

It was a link in an email from Cait Flanders

It immediately made me want to do something.  I flipped to my email and sent a note to a friend that I’d been meaning to get in touch with for months… She’d had a pretty bad car accident, and I’d hung out with her husband since the accident, but not her… But then I remembered that I hadn’t actually been in touch with her husband in a while either, so I quickly typed up another email to him… It felt good… and bad… I felt guilt that I hadn’t done it sooner.  It took reading an article by some random person on the internet I don’t know to encourage me to actually spend the 2 minutes it takes to write an email… I had spent longer reading the article!

The worst part of the whole thing, was that when I got a response from her husband, it wasn’t all that positive… And it made me feel even more guilt for not reaching out sooner.

I’ve had a goal all year in an effort to do better at keeping in touch with people, but I’ve expressed recently that I didn’t really think I was doing a good enough job of actually putting an effort in to it… But that didn’t actually get me off my butt to change anything… And I need to… So… for the next week, I’m going to challenge myself to go through the list of people on the page in my bullet journal, and contact each and every one of them.  Even if it is just a quick text or email.  I’m going to do that.  Got it?  And, yes… I will be back in a week with the results…

In the meantime, I highly recommend that you give that article a quick read and reach out to anyone that you have been meaning to get in touch with, but just haven’t found the time.  It’ll be worth it, I promise!

Personal Goals Update

At the beginning of the year I made myself 5 personal goals.  I haven’t done any posts summarizing how those goals are going so far this year, so I think it is high time for me to do just that… So, here it goes…

Goal #1 was to visit with friends and family at least twice per month.  I started with this spread in my bullet journal:

Then I moved to my new bullet journal and I never copied that spread over… Well, until now… But I decided to go through my bullet journal and fill in where I did stuff with people that was recorded in my bullet journal (there were probably other things that weren’t recorded, but this is the best that I can do for now…) Continue reading
