I Want To Make A Difference With My Words In 2017

Every year around this time, we get the idea to write down a ton of things we want to accomplish in the New Year, even some outrageous goals that seem unreachable.

In 2016, I really didn’t write as much as I would have liked to. It was a great year, but was largely filled with adult-ing and surviving.

I wish I had more hours to my days and more days to my week. That also means that everything I do needs to be worthy of the time I’m spending on the things I’m working on.

2016 In A Nutshell

2016 was an amazing year, since I married my best friend and we got to travel to some of our favorite places and also spend time with some of our favorite people.

I sadly didn’t accomplish as much as I’d have liked to from my 2016 Resolutions. I think for 2017, I am going to do quarterly goals.

But, I really did learn a lot professionally in 2016. I learned how to be a good team lead and how¬†you shouldn’t treat people on your team. Also learned some important things I’ll use when I run my own business someday.

I spoke at the MN Bloggers Conference in Minneapolis.

I recently got an amazing job that I LOVE! I am looking forward to the many adventures to be had there.

Looking On To This Year

I am feeling hopeful for the year ahead as I want to accomplish a lot. At work, our boss gave us this book called “One Word That Will Change Your Life”

My word for 2017 is REACH! For more on why I chose reach go here. I really want to simplify my goals so choosing one word is kind of difficult for me because I’ve always over-packed my backpack with things I want to finish. And then overwhelming myself completely and not accomplishing those goals.

I’m going to make those goals more reasonable so I can actually do and finish them.

Quarterly Goals

To start off my simplifying goal-making strategy, I am going to come up with a list of things I’d like to have accomplished in the next three months and my major goals in 2017.

January, February, and March:

  1. Start exercising 3-4 times a week. (12 month goal: Lose weight and get healthy.)
  2. Write at least 6 hours a week. (12 month goal: Write a complete book and reach out to agents.)
  3. Get a basic product up online to make passive income from. (12 month goal: Make at least $500 extra a month through online business.)
  4. Do something special for someone I love every week. (12 month goal: Relationship. Be a better wife, daughter, sister, and friend.)
  5. Make something new weekly. (12 month goal: Build my creativity.)
  6. Do a Bible study every day. (12 month goal: Get closer to the Lord.)

That’s my goals for the next three months.

What are your goals for the next three months?
