Lisa Jacobs started the 16 before 2016 challenge at the end of October. I’ve decided to join in the fun this year. To be honest, I can’t even remember my goals for 2015, but I know what I want to get completed before the new year.
I am giving myself 50 days (the number of days left until 2016) worth of goals to start achieving. 50 days seems like such a great number to start with.
- Catch up on Project Life 2015
- Complete GED
- Create Morning Routine
- Complete 2 books
- Complete December Daily
- Visit Christmas light displays around town
- 8,000 steps per day in December
- Organize 2014 photos
- Shoulder stretches Daily
- Blog 3 days per week
- Pay an extra $150 on CC
- Do yoga 3 days per week
- Write an action plan for 2016 goals
- Create and send out Christmas cards
- Complete HTML & CSS Course on Codecademy
- Put lotion on everyday.
I broke down my list to a few different categories. I have my creative focus, health, financial and some holiday fun. I am trying to find a good way to track these goals for the next 50 days, but for now, I’ve just written the list out and have it in a spot I’ll see it everyday. I’ve broken down some of these goals to smaller steps so that I can work towards them. I will be going into more detail about some of these in some later blog posts as well.
My Project Life goal I broke down into smaller pieces in my Catch Up post last week, but some of these other goals are just in the planning stages. Completing my GED seems like such a big project, but I know I can finish this one by the end of November. I only have 2 more tests to take before I’m finally done! Creating a morning routine will not just involve writing down what I want but actually implementing it. Completing two books means putting the time aside to read! None of these goals are terribly difficult, they just take some effort and planning. Something I know I will have to work at.
I’m hoping at the end of these 50 days I’ll feel more accomplished and ready to take on the new goals for 2016. :)
Are you doing Lisa Jacobs 16 before 2016 challenge? How are you breaking down your goals?
