2020 Goals

Wow. In reviewing my 2019 goals, I realized that a lot of them were things I just added to the list for something to accomplish, but really cared so little about that they never occurred to me again. How lame!

I now need to do one of two things differently: Either 1) List things that are actual goals that I feel something about, or 2) Come back and review the list at some point so I can remember what the goals are that I may feel nothing about. Make sense? Hahaha....
And barely into the list, I have yet another brilliant brainstorm. After I publish this, I should take some time to make notes in my calendar, so I'll be reminded of tasks with a later start date. Go, me!

Here we have, my 2020 goal list:
  1. Paint the front door. See, it's dark green right now, and I really feel another color will do better to offset our green holiday wreath. And painting in the winter seems like a bad idea, so I'll need to remember/follow-up with this one in the summer, more or less.
  2. Bake regularly.
  3. Yell less.
  4. Complete a counted cross-stitch project. I've got two to choose from.
  5. Wash my vehicle at least monthly. 
  6. Drink at least four glasses of water daily, on a regular basis.
  7. Set up my Erin Condren notebook as a recipe book.
  8. Complete at least 40 Yelp reviews.
  9. Feed birds through the winter.
  10. Put hanging flower baskets at front porch for summer.
  11. Continue unpacking office boxes from the basement.
  12. Score for Pearson.
  13. Work elections.
  14. Do family holiday cards. Mail them in November 2020.
  15. Blog regularly.
  16. Walk regularly when it's warm outside.
  17. Read more books. 2019 saw me reading 87, so 'more' means 88! 
  18. Do the 52 week savings challenge for holiday shopping at the end of the year.
  19. Save enough from my school-year paychecks so we can still do fun stuff this summer.
  20. Burn more candles.
  21. Update the kids' bedroom doors (currently still decorated from Valentine's Day, 2014, I think).
  22. Re-organize office with a goal of redecorating and doing more of my usual work in there. 
  23. Keep working a job outside the home.
  24. Do something fun with my hair (cut/color) at least once this year.
  25. Finish paying for our Disney trip this spring break.
  26. Save enough money to have a $1K cushion before our Disney trip this spring break.
  27. Appreciate that my life is pretty wonderful with or without these goals accomplished.
  28. Believe in my ability to complete these goals.

You’ve got this. You need a challenge of some sort.

One thing I do is update my goals (and challenges) list every month in a wrap-up post at the end of the month. That way I'm being reminded of them at least once a month. :-)

Good luck!!
