I'm looking back at my post of goals for 2013. It's actually quite nice to have it all listed down (even though I didn't get through much) just to see what I wanted to achieve, what I did and what I didn't. My word - organise. Pretty much utter failure. Apart from organising my finances. In 2013 I managed to pay off my credit card. Something I haven't done since getting a credit card 13 years ago at 19. A big achievement for me. I'm also saving towards a new car at the moment and MR and I managed to save up for a holiday to NZ in October. I'm pretty pleased with achieving our financial goals. It's quite nice to feel (a little bit) financially responsible.
As to the other goals, I also did the Run for a Reason again and I did manage it at faster than 50 minutes - 37 minutes this time! Maybe better again for this year?
So on to the future. I'm scrapping the word. I never even remember the word. And I work better on small achievable goals. So here's my list of them.
- learn how to bake (good) bread from scratch
- keep my credit card paid off
- submit my picture book manuscript (I just keep putting this off, fear of rejection and all...)
- tidy out my craft room (determined!!!)
- make a crochet blanket for my house
Of course, in the back of my head are those typical resolutions of get fit! exercise! be active! and I'm always hopeful on that front but 32 years of it not happening yet may just win over once again.
What are the small things you want to achieve this year?
