Goal Setting

2019 New Year’s Resolutions

I am a big fan of New Year’s Resolutions (which I refer to as my goals). I love taking time to reflect on last year’s achievements and learning lessons, then taking that information into forming goals for the upcoming year. This year I want to simplify my goals into a few big picture items that I can really focus on and make progress with. My word of the year for 2019 is Action. In 2018 I did a lot of research, brainstorming, and learning, but I feel that my action steps fell short. In 2019 I really want to get out and take more action with my business.

2019 Goals:

  1. Grow SRM Organizing LLC - Book Clients, Blog 2+ Times a Month, Book Speaking Engagements

  2. Learn Spanish - Use the Duolingo app daily

  3. 15 Minutes of Household Cleaning Everyday

  4. Keep a Gratitude Journal

The Happier Podcast with Gretchen Rubin discusses the idea of making a 19 for 2019 list (19 things you want to do this year). You can make it as hard or as easy as you want. I’m filling my list with fun things I want to do this year and keeping my big picture goals separate.

19 for 2019:

  1. Get a dog

  2. Attend a barre class

  3. Attend a spin class

  4. Try aerial yoga

  5. Attend Bossed Up Boot Camp in Chicago, IL

  6. Go downhill skiing

  7. Host a birthday party for me

  8. Host a summer backyard party for Zumba friends
