20 Goals in 2020 - how to set achievable goals in the New Year

It's 2020 and my vision is to have a great year!  Haha.  For real though - I'm so looking forward to the new year.  I think a fun thing to do in 2020 is to set 20 goals!  Come along on the journey with me!

If you've been anywhere near the internet the past week, you have probably heard non-stop talk of goals and resolutions!  Raise your hand if you've ever set the resolution to lose weight.  Me too!  Raise your hand if you've broken that weight loss resolution within the week and feel like a failure.  Yeah, me too again!

After years of setting strict resolutions and always being disappointed in myself for my lack of sticking to it, I have figured out that setting goals instead of one time strict resolutions is the way to go.  Changing that mindset has filled me with excitement for the New Year.  With the fresh start, the goal setting ... dare I say this is my favorite time of year?

20 goals in 2020

This year I am setting 20 goals in 4 different areas of my life.

  • Work/Blog
  • Personal/Family
  • Home
  • fun

I thought about the things I want to improve in each area and small actionable steps I could take to get there.  Some goals were big, some were small, but all of them will help me craft the kind of life I want.

Here are some questions to ask yourself as you are goal setting- What do I want to accomplish in the upcoming year?  How to I want to feel at the end of the year?  How do I want to feel at the end of the day?  What are some things I need to do daily in order to feel that way?

  • Find the perfect white T shirt to wear with clothes I already have
  • Get an eye lash lift
  • Have a girls night at least once a quarter
  • Find good gluten free flour

Setting goals doesn't have to be a difficult process.  Just ask yourself what you'd like to achieve this year.  20 goals in 2020 is totally doable!  And if you go off track, start again the next day!
