New Year, New Goals!
Setting Goals for the New Year!
Every year I think we all set goals for the year ahead. So I feel better if I have something to work towards. I also feel if I write it down and tell someone else I think I will stick to it!
So I am sharing my goals here for 2018 because if I tell you then hopefully it will keep me on track.
I have goals for all aspects of my life. Blogging world, fitness, personal and work!

Plan, Plan, Plan.
A plan is something I like to have now I do not plan out everything but I always like to have a plan in place, it can change but it works for me.
I hope you set some goals for yourself and see how many you tick off the list. I am going to print my list out and put it on my fridge. So I can look at it everyday as a reminder of the goals I have set. A visual is always a great thing because you see it and it will encourage you to try reach them.
You might be reading my list and think why would that be a personal goal? Some of my goals is just for me to be more aware of and do it more frequently. Hence why I make them and try to remember to stick to them.
I feel we are all very good the first few month but then its a slippery slop back to the way of old habits. I read recently it takes 66 days for a something to be become natural. For example getting up at 6 am to do a workout take 66 days for it to become a natural habit instead of feeling like an effort. I guess I will have to see how that works out.
Also a lot of goals are seasonal, I mean I cant expect to take the kids outside if its lashing rain so obviously there are always factors to consider but if I try, that to me is more important than not trying at all.
Set a goal even if its only one and when you reach that goal set another one so on and so on.
Always remember strive for “Progress not Perfection”.
