I started 2018 with the vision of a happily married dynamic businesswoman who makes good money and lives in a beautiful house with a tranquil garden. And my mission was to entertain and share my wisdom by writing prolifically and publishing widely.
And I chose the virtues of:
- Wisdom: possibly most important; street smart but flexible and adaptable, dreaming up new ideas for dealing with difficult situations.
- Energy/Positivity: taking care of physical and mental health to maximise my ability to achieve my goals.
- Focus/Discipline: doing one thing at a time, balancing my workload, and managing my time and energy so I get the right things done at the right time.
- Friendship: open and honest in my dealings with others.
- Prosperity: making money, but valuing time and health.
My goal was to learn and grow every day, by reading widely and learning new and interesting facts.
Mid-Year: Was happily ahead of my reading target (a book a week), and felt like it was making a difference. Rating: 🙂
Year-End: I beat my target ( 🙂 ), and I still think it’s making a difference. Rating: 🙂
Energy was about wellness: eating, moving, and sleeping for maximum wellness, along with achieving the medically suggested weight goal (59 kg). Plus developing a more dynamic and creative, practical and workable
Mid-year: Didn’t lose weight, but did plan some wardrobe changes. Rating: 😐
Year-end: gained weight, and had some clothes made. Rating: 😐
Mid-year: I found that reporting on my business goals distracted me from my life goals, so I decided to stop reporting on them. Rating: 🙁
Friendship was about meeting new people, and sharing my knowledge, time and money with those who need it.
Mid-year: hadn’t done much about meeting new people, but had shared my knowledge widely. Rating: 😐
Year-end: still haven’t met many new people, but I’m still sharing. Rating: 😐
This one was going back to the beginning, with a nice balance of time, money and happiness – feeling wealthy and a happy household.
Mid-year: we had time and happiness, but a lack of money prevented progress on some of our projects. Rating: 🙂
Year-end: we’ve finished some of those projects, and are starting to think about what’s next. Rating: 🙂
It begs the question about whether some of my goals were the right goals at the right time. Or were important enough to really care about.
