We’re months into 2016, so I’ve definitely avoided the new years resolution annoyance. Despite this, I’ve still got goals and achievements I want to meet.It may not happen this year, specifically; but I want to make them happen at some point in the near future. I may not set a date to each and every one, but I think keeping them in mind (or on print) proves to be a better method of reaching them. Without prolonging this further…
Goals for here onwards include:
- Start training for a half marathon and 5K/10K
- Skydive (for charity or otherwise)
- Try something new – food or activity
- Volunteer with an organisation for 6 months
- Read at least 12 books (one per month in 2016)
- Increase blog following to 50+ by the end of 2016
- Partake in a sport
- Start running
- Write a blog post weekly – minimum
- Build a positive online network
I may return to this blog post and change things. This isn’t a goal for a lifetime, just something for the next few years.
As humans, I think we often let our goals/dreams slip by because we doubt ourselves; or in many cases, we let others doubt us. People are going to be critical of your goals especially if it’s something like running a marathon when you haven ran for over 3 years (referring to myself). The important thing to remember is that they’re your visions. Nobody else has to believe in what you’re trying to achieve. Nobody has to spoon feed you with encouragement, though it’s useful! It has to come from you.
I’ve wanted to do several things in the past, though I’ve never quite had the courage to step forward, acknowledge them and achieve them. I’m changing that.
Side note: I will return to this blog post on January 2017 to see what I’ve achieved.
What are your goals or dreams?
Is there something in particular, you want to achieve – big or small?
