Goals for 2014

Standard

yearly goalsAhh, a fresh, new year.  Nothing quite like it, is there?  It’s wonderful — even magical — when you think about all of the possibilities a new year brings.

Last year I made 24 goals for the year… and really didn’t succeed that well with them.  Too many of my goals were open ended and too vague.  So this year I worded things a bit differently.

And so, here is my list of goals for 2014:

Personal Goals:
~ Read at least 50 books.
~ Take part in at least four Bible studies.
~ Complete a 5K.
~ Lose 25 pounds.
Homeschooling Goals:
~ Ensure C is able to recognize each letter of the alphabet (upper and lower case) and her numbers.
~ Begin teaching C some sight words.
~ Read at least 100 books to C.
~ Read at least 50 books to J.
Financial Goals:
~ Save up and purchase new gutters.
~ Save up and purchase a fridge.
~ Save $1,000 cash for emergencies.
~ Save up one month of living expenses.
Homemaking Goals:
~ Declutter my home.
~ Declutter the garage.
~ Declutter the shop.
~ Try 40 new recipes.
Service/Fellowship Goals:
~ Invite friends over at least once a month.
~ Deliver homemade goodies to a neighbor or friend at least 10 times.
~ Deliver items to Salvation Army at least 10 times.
~ Find two other charities/ministries to volunteer with or help out.
Blogging Goals:
~ Publish an average of two blog posts per week.
~ Participate in the 31 days series challenge.
~ Complete and blog about three crafts.
~ Learn more about Pinterest and use it more often.

Twenty-four goals again this year.  I didn’t even plan that. 🙂

If you haven’t already thought about and written down some goals for this year I challenge you to do so.  Even if it’s just a couple.  Do it.  You’ll be glad you did!
