Writing goals down makes them more tangible. I was never really one for writing lists of goals and aims for the year but I really enjoyed getting last year’s birthday list down. OK, it slipped my mind quite a lot and I forgot to keep checking back to it but the first time you do anything you come away with learnings, right?
I’m not sure if I think that 35 is a huge number or not. But I know that I struggled with 34 last year. That could simply be because it was the first time I’d actually challenged myself to think about what I’d like to achieve in the year ahead. Actual, proper goals that I can tick off not just wishy-washy general new year’s resolutions that you feel like you have to make because it’s the norm.
It’s quite nice to have a starting point this year though. I don’t have to think of all 35 fresh. Even the aims that I ticked off have sparked further ideas for goals and I enjoy the way these things snowball.
There we have it. 35 things for me to try and tackle this coming year. I’m going to try and be more organised with it this year and write the list in my diary too. That way I can keep a tally of how I’m doing.
Wish me luck.
