2019 Goals-Reading and Other

I love to make new goals, at the beginning of a year, at the beginning of a month, at the beginning of a week. I love to try and stretch myself just beyond what I think I can manage. Sometimes I fail and I feel bad for a while before I make new goals to try for. But sometimes I succeed and I see just how much I can actually accomplish when I push myself.

I have made New Year’s Goals for as long as I can remember and there is always a mix of things to strive for when I pick up my pen and begin to write them down. I also, nearly always, end up with 12 goals. It happens unconsciously. I write until I feel done and then I count and, more often than not, I have twelve items.

This year is no exception. I have 12 items on my 2019 Goals list, that I keep in the back of my planner.

Six of these goals are reading or writing related.

  1. Read 75 books. I’m upping my Goodreads reading goal from 1 book a week to 1.5 books a week. I will have read about 130 books this year by the time the year ends so this should be doable.
  2. Read my NaNoWriMo 2010 rough draft.
  3. Read my NaNoWriMo 2012 rough draft.
  4. Keep up on my blog posts. I post Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday and have since the end of June 2018.
  5. Complete 2 of the 3 NaNoWriMo events in 2019.
  6. Finish my One Year Adventure Novel lessons.

The other six goals are varied:

  1. Having a monthly date night with my husband.
  2. Getting the spare room cleared out to have a functional playroom for my three year old.
  3. Improving my typing speed.
  4. Losing 25 pounds.
  5. Growing our savings again.
  6. And taking my daughter to at least one new museum. She loves them!

Here’s to a successful 2019! What are some of your goals?
