It’s the first day of the new year and month. Which means we make goals around here. Making my goals actually got me super excited for the year. To be real I wasn’t as stoked for this new year as in the past, but seeing my goals on paper shifted me. Write the vision and make it plain.
Fitness & Health: To get back in the gym at least 3 – 5 times a week. I’ve been going here and there but my goal for this month is consistency. NO MATTERS WHAT!
Money Management: I revised my budgets today and I plan on sticking to them. As much as I had cut out spending eating out is as much as it increased last month. I need to stick to the amounts I set and not step out of it. I love eating out with friends the fellowship time is what I love. I wrote a list of fun free things we can do outside of eating. Plus I need to prep my healthy snacks so I’m not spending small amounts of money that add up to a lot at the end of the month. Another thing I set up is to having monthly meetings with my personal banker. This will help me asses where I am financially and if I am on track to reach my goals. I am extremely blessed with an awesome banker who calls me when he sees me spending to much, BUT sometimes I ignore him. Sorry Tony!
Writing: Last month I did not reach my goal of finding a writing group. Eek! I did take a few online classes and read articles but when I looked up groups I was overwhelmed. Some of them just seemed so critical. Alas I need to join one and will do just that the worst that can happen is people rip my work to shreds and I grow right. I actually think I’ll enjoy it once in the swing of things. So time to get it done. As far as guest posts that goal is becoming reality this month with a post I’ve already written. (More details to come later) I will still be submitting my work to publications. I made a goal to submit at least 3 articles this month.
YouTube: Before there was lizzypbeauty.com it all started on YouTube. I had wanted to start a channel for years before it was really even a thing, but always convinced myself I couldn’t do it. I gave it a go at the beginning of last year but became discouraged when I didn’t have the equipment to make my videos fancy. I really do love making videos and will work with what is in my hand. I have to much content I want to share via that platform that I can’t ignore any more.
Discipline: I need discipline in my life in a major way. Every area I fail in is due to a lack of discipline. Procrastination is not my friend if I plan accomplishing my goals I need to have more structure and stick to it. I’ve been treasure hunting in the bible all day for scriptures on discipline. Not really fun but helpful. Setting up a plan!
Those are some of my major immediate goals. Let’s attack this month head on and get it done.
