For the last 3 years I have made a list of goals at the beginning of the year. 2015 is no different. Each year the list has gotten more and more specific.
Because of my friend who is a genius at list making, I have learned that if I write it down, I usually accomplish it. In the middle of last year I also started using the Bullet Journal format for making my lists and setting goals. I got better and better at that throughout the year. I have realized that electronic lists don;t really work for me. Typing the words doesn’t stick them in my mind the way writing them does. In addition, I often forget to open the app or the website where I am storing my stuff but my notebook/journal is always nearby. I like the feeling of paper and a good pen.
This year’s goal list is much expanded from other years. It has 8 categories including Family, House, Writing, Teaching, Spiritual, Personal, Making and Samples. There are at least 3 and 5 goals in each category. Also, this year, I wrote my list right in the front of the journal I started so they are easy to find, review and adjust if necessary.
The Bullet Journaling needs to be neater, I think but it’s a way to keep track of where I am on things and see where I need to get better.
My first goal to accomplish for this year however, is to feel better. I’m going to lay down.
