So I kind of feel the urge to expand on my goals for 2019.
In my previous post I shared that I wanted to work on my emotional toughness for 2019. It’s a great goal, but if I were to be completely honest with you, it’s not my only goal.
I’m human just like anyone else, so my other goals are the usual suspects – lose weight, decrease debt etc.
Here’s my list of goals:
- Lose weight
- Decrease body fat %
- Run more (more often, and gradually build more distance each month than the month before)
- Run faster
- Strength train more
- Decrease my debt
- Earn more money from my blogs (I also blog at salads4lunch.com)
- Increase monthly traffic to my blogs
- Increase my social media followers
As you can see some of my goals tie in to each other. If I run and strength train more, I’m also more likely to lose weight and body fat, although eating has a role in that too. With debt, earning more will help me to decrease the debt, but only if I spend less. Though I find that tracking my spending is a harder task.
I’ve always felt very strongly that progress towards goals should be tracked. Many people fail to accomplish their goals not because they lack skills and knowledge but because they lose the sight of what they want to achieve. So in saying this I created a goal tracking sheet in google docs for me track my progress. Some of my goals are better tracked on a monthly basis, and others are best tracked on a weekly basis, but because I’m a tad lazy 🙂 I’m just going to track them all on a monthly basis.
My plan is to share my progress here on a monthly basis mostly because sharing helps me to stay accountable. I don’t like to share actual numbers because those are rather personal, so instead I’ll share the percentage change from month to month, and from the current month over the year. I don’t know if anyone will actually care about my progress, but I’m going to share anyways 🙂
What are your goals for 2019? How will you track your goals?
