Four Simple Goals…Before 2014

foursimplegoalsRealizing that there’s now just two months left in 2013 (kinda into it though…I feel like even years are my years…maybe?) I decided to revisit my 2013 goal list. While some things I did accomplish or am in the process of accomplishing (set a vitamin and supplement regimen, add more money to savings every month, travel, learn Photoshop skills) others I definitely did not (learn to read music, “Alana Blanchard’s ass” (ha!) and figure out dream job and how to get there (HA!!)).

While the OCD/perfectionist in me soo wants to be able to cross everything off of my list by the end of December, I know that won’t be realistic or pleasant. (I have no problem waiting for the water to warm up again before hopping on a surfboard!). So I took some inspiration from A Beautiful Mess and decided to create my own four goals to complete by the end of the year. I hope to do way more than these four things, but this way I’m constantly improving without adding the pressure and stress. I know I’ll feel accomplished and ready to set brand new goals come 2014!

Four Simple Goals Before 2014:

1. Find an organization to support and volunteer.
I write this on my to do list every week!
2. Finish four books.
Any books!
3. DIY projects and homemade holiday gifts. 
Complete already started DIY projects and work on homemade holiday gifts.
4. Research personal finance and invest! 
Become more confident with the stock market and dip my toes in.

What are your four goals?
Here are the rules:

1. Choose simple goals that will make your life richer and happier on a daily basis. Choose things you may not otherwise get done but are not difficult to accomplish.
2. Do not choose result oriented goals. Choose activity oriented goals. For example, instead of “lose 10 pounds”, choose something like “eat fresh fruits and vegetables every day”. Get what I’m saying? Positive actions instead of just the end result!
3. Choose personal goals you believe will truly make your life richer just by doing them! They can be daily, weekly or one time experiences.
4. Choose a reward for each goal as it is accomplished! It can be a small or large reward—it’s up to you.
