I love setting goals, and I also love habits so I’m all about new year’s resolutions.
We typically talk with our kids and encourage everyone to set a public goal in three of these areas: physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual. We often have private goals as well, but the public ones are put on the wall so we can cheer each other on.
This year for myself I’m focusing on being more consistent in little things that make a big difference in my life. Two I’ll share here are: picking up a book instead of my phone and taking at least a short walk every day I can.
For goals that I can actually complete and check off, I usually plan in 6 week intervals instead of a whole year. I’ve found it to be a good amount of time because it’s short enough to minimize procrastination yet long enough to get some traction. My first interval this year is all about finance and includes some tasks I’ve been putting off: streamlining how I use YNAB and updating our estate planning. Not very glamorous! 😆
(It helps to have some encouragement for the walks. )
