I attended an online event hosted by Shaun King a few days ago and we promoted the event using the hashtag #100lifegoals. There were a lot of great speakers that spoke and gave inspiring advice on how to accomplish your goals for 2014.
One thing I took from the event was from Carl Lentz, a pastor in NYC and that was to write more. This includes on my blog and actually writing on paper. I was so inspired that I paused the webinar and went out and bought a notebook.
Now I thought coming up with reasonable goals would be the hard part but I actually had a hard time trying to pick out an actual journal. I’m usually a simple, professional woman and I would normally go for a plain black leather-bound notebook. Then I thought, I need to step outside my comfort zone and buy something unique. I chose a very a vibrant, bohemian-feel journal filled with pink pages, edged in gold.
My goal is to attempt to write every other day, if not every day. I wrote a note on my Facebook page, listing the attainable goals I plan on accomplishing this year…instead of making resolutions for the New Year. Take a look at my goals below, in no particular order:
- Generate an alternate source of income (most important)
- Stretch more
- Give up certain foods for Lent
- Try an all vegan diet for a week
- Read more books (shooting for at least 10 this year but I hope to do more)
- Leave the country
- Find a church
- Work towards getting back to high school size (least important)
- Write more
What are some of the goals you plan on reaching by the end of 2014?
