Everyone has been there, the new year rolls around and you plan all these awesome resolutions. Some are fitness related, others are just to be a better person. I've never had a fitness related resolution, so I've never experienced the "screw it, I hate the gym" fall out. I have had resolutions that I never followed through with, everyone has. I don't even think I've EVER followed through with any of my resolutions. I looked back at my 2018 goals and the one I did accomplish was a blog revamp. Other than that I definitely didn't travel overseas or spend less time on my phone.
Instead of resolutions, I wrote goals. Verbiage is everything to me, I read into words more than anything. Setting goals is something I do year round. This keeps me sane, and on top of my game. This year, I sat down with a fresh notebook and a pen and wrote goals I want to accomplish, whether they are a daily goal or something that will take me years.
So here are my goals, hold me to them.
Build a great portfolio at work. Career goals for 2019.
Work on less tech time.
Take photos, weekly, and don't be afraid to do some MORE daring / creative shit.
Get a 24-70 mm lens. Saving pennies as we speak.
Get ahead of my debt, we all have it. If you don't, congrats. Student loans are real, and expensive.
More self love / self care. Taking the time to pamper myself, because only I can truly take care of myself.
Read 15 books. Giving myself a specific number is better than saying "I'm going to read more".
