I like to start the year by writing a list of goals for myself. This exercise helps me identify what is important in the near future, think about how best to achieve it, and help myself see progress toward where I want to be in my life. Last year wrote out 13 goals for 2021. Unfortunately, I wrote them quickly and they fell out of my mind about as fast. That said, I did make some progress the writing/reading goals by virtue of getting blog system together.

I think I could improve on last year’s goals by:

  1. making this year’s goals SMART from the start
  2. scheduling monthly check-ins
  3. making the list private

Keeping the list private is less for actually privacy concerns and more-so to ensure that I’m brutally honest and open when writing and reviewing these goals.
