Happy late NewYear! Here are my 2018 goals.

I always say that I never resolve to do anything, because if I do I set myself up for failure. Not only that but a resolution has to be written with a couple of whereas clauses, and a “be it further” or two. Instead, I make a list of things I’d like accomplish in the NewYear, if I only get a few done like last year, it’s fine. If I get half done, that would be cool! If I somehow manage to get them all done, that would be extra epic! That being said, here are my list of goals for 2018.

  • Read at least one book a month, I’d prefer 2 but we’ll start with one just to see how things go.
  • Make a to-do list each day, each week, and each month.
  • Loos 10-15 pounds.
  • Participate in 12 monthly challenges.
  • Participate in 4 90 day challenges.
  • Make a list of 10 things daily.
  • Pay off a credit card.
  • Do one new thing a month, no matter how small.
  • Replace my phone.
  • Exercise every weekday.
  • Start podcasting again.
  • Switch banks.

  • Donate to a charity 3-4 times, a different charity each time.
  • Donate to a croudfunding project/campaign 3-4 times.
  • Delete my Facebook account for good!
  • Privatize my personal Twitter account, and only use it for following friends.
  • Observe Lent.
  • Transition to mostly vegitarian, with an ocasional chicken/fish dish once a month.
  • Document successes/achievements weekly, no matter how small.

  • Go through the legal process of changing my name.
  • Start a my day in six words journal, and keep it for at least 6 months, (nonconsecutively, so if I take a break inbetween it would be fine.)
  • Commit to a gratitude journal, even if it’s just writing down one thing.
  • Read scripture daily, even if it’s just one verse!
  • Learn something new each and every day, no matter what the topic is.
  • Invest in cryptocurrency.
  • Make a list of books I would like to read this year, to make choosing books easier, instead of the almost 500 books I have in my TBR list over on Goodreades.)
