It’s the time of the year again in which always have that urge to fulfill our desires and wants to happen in our life. Because it’s a new year we formulate our resolutions this year.
What is Resolution? Resolution as per Google is a firm decision to do or not to do something. However, most often than not our resolution ends up a wish and in the trash. Come next year you’ll realize that this resolution that you’re thinking now was the resolution a few years ago. This is what happened to me and I realize that resolution is like a bonfire, in Filipino idioms “ningas-kugon“. It has fire if you keep adding twigs or lumber; mostly after 2 months or the first quarter we suddenly forget it or get tired of it.
So, why or what is the reason behind it, why we get tired of our resolutions? In my own observation to myself, it’s because mostly our resolution is not formatted like goals. If you set a goal, you set a schedule of when it should be completed, if you set a goal you create timelines and identify milestones. The goal’s characteristic is S.M.A.R.T. The S stands for Specific, M for Measurable, A for Achievable, R for Realistic, and T for Timely.
For this blog post, I’m going to share with you my 2020 goals and let us meet at the end of the year of which among my goals I listed here are achieved.
So for my financial goal, I set to have Php 15,000 at the end of the year where I have to save this in GCash CIMB. A major milestone identified will be by June I must have Php 6,000 and then September which I must have Php10,000.
While for my health goal, since I think it will be unrealistic for me to go on a diet this year so I just choose dental check-up twice a year. The first check-up will be this March and the second one will be this November.
For social media goals, I must be able to publish 12 blogs and 12 vlogs this year, at least 1 post per month. Milestones will be this July and September. This July I must have posted 7 blogs and 7 vlogs then the next milestone I must have posted 9 blogs and 9 vlogs.
Then for my knowledge goal, I must finish reading 3 eBook or Audiobook this year with at least 150 pages. No specific genre for now as I am not really a book reader. The purpose of this is for me to train myself to love reading books. I consider this as the difficult one among my goals but the milestone will be this April where must have finished reading 1 book then by August I must finish reading 2 books in total then 3 by December.
I hope at the end of the year most of these goals will be completed or at least at 90% completion, I set reminders on my calendar to make sure that these goals will be achieved. Wish me luck guys and see you at the end of this year for our goals review!
Please comment down below your goals too, I would love to know what you are up to this year. 🙂
