2018 Goal Setting

2018 Goals (1).png

We are three days into 2018. Can you believe that we are already in 2018?! I can't. Over the last week or so I have thought about what my goals are this year personally and for My Simple Life. I love setting goals. I am a task-oriented person, so my sense of accomplishment often comes from checking things off a to-do list and being productive. 

I have never really set goals for myself. Is that crazy? I know that goal setting allows you to pinpoint and hone in on the purpose behind your daily tasks but I never made it a priority. There are a lot of new things coming for me in 2018 and goal setting is one of them!

2018 GOALS:

BLOG ON THE DAILY:

I have blogged on and off for years. It is something that I love to do, however I never seem to make time for. I love writing for me, but I also love writing for other people. I want to share products I use, my daily life, DIY projects and more. As you get to know me (and I get to know you) If you have specifics you want to read about shoot me an email.

CREATE A WORK-BLOG BALANCE:

Life is all about balance. I tend to go all in then quickly get burned out. Though I love my full time job, I still need my "me" space. I also tend to get consumed with social media and how many likes and follows and hearts I get. My goal for this year is to set up a schedule where I set aside time to write blog posts, make contact with companies and have dedicated time for social media, without letting my creative space run my life.

READ 12 NOVELS:

I love reading. I remember when I was a kid when I found books that I loved, I couldn't put them down. As I am becoming more and more of an adult, my love for reading has no faded but my will to make it a priority is. I love having this as a goal and hopefully it encourages me turn off the TV more.

GROW MY EMAIL LIST:

Over the years, I have learned that email marketing is the most important kind, so this upcoming year I want to focus on how to effectively and strategically grow my list more. 

DETOXIFY MY LIFE:

It isn't a secret that toxins are in almost everything.  I'm no millionaire and I can't completely replace EVERYTHING we own at once, so my goal is to start with one room at a time and slowly detoxify my life. I will share what I learn!
