After we write down what our goals are, we typically create a plan to achieve them. Sometimes this plan goes exactly they way we want (very rarely), or we have to adjust fire and figure out a new plan. The worst thing you can do in this situation is be stubborn and think that your plan will still work and get you to accomplish the goal on the timeline you want. Sometimes that goal also has to be re-written or re-evaluated in order to be achieved. It’s been 6 months since I set my 2019 goals (click the link to see the original goals), and it is time to re-evaluate them as I have made progress on some, but several of them have been stagnant. Here is my re-evaluated list:
- The original goal was to submit my officer package early 2020 and focus this year on creating the best package possible, but I have not put enough effort into making that dream a reality. I will have to adjust my timeline and push it to late 2020 and by the end of July, my intent is to have looked through the package details with additional thorough deadlines.
- My physical fitness has not been prioritized as much as it should and my original goal still needs to be worked on. I need to be overall healthy and commit to a solid plan and nutritional diet.
- After reading U Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins, I have a better plan on how I will reach my goal of becoming an effective swimmer and it is still necessary. I have gotten more water confidence from going to the beach, but time is still required for success.
- I’ve done a lot of meal prepping, but nothing has been consistent. My wife has taught me how to cook better too. This goal has had progress to it.
- I took my last 2 college courses and I am waiting for my degree in the mail now. I may not have gotten A’s, but it is a great relief to having this goal completed.
- I said I would read 1 book a month this year and I believe I am slightly behind on that goal. I have read Bigger, Leaner, Stronger, Becoming a Better Speaker, U Can’t Hurt Me and Ghost Fleet. Expect book reports on these books in the coming weeks.
- Better habits have not been created, but are required for success.
- I don’t believe we have created any new family traditions, yet.
- The goal of creating a 2019 photo album is slowly coming to fruition. My wife is hard at work in creating this.
- Becoming debt free is always a process because things seem to come up at bad times and we are not prepared for them.
- Unexpected things came up, preventing us from taking a trip to Osaka this past spring; however, we were able to travel to the Philippines and I will write a blog post about that soon as well.
- I am still planning our surprise anniversary trip. Hopefully, we can make it all work.
- We decided not to go with a birthday party, but rather a birthday travel day. We’re still working on where we want to take them.
- Blair hasn’t been able to do her swimming lessons because we haven’t had time for it, but she is absolutely loving her Yochien and going exploring.
- With a lack of focus on my brand, social media and blog, all of my goals have had little to no progress. My goal is still to be self-hosted by the end of the year, make more frequent quality posts and to make some videos this year. I also still intend to continue growing social media platforms, more specifically Pinterest and Instagram.
- Now that I am done with my college journey, I am working on becoming a certified life coach.
I expect myself to be fully committed to these goals and to not make any excuses as to why they are not getting done. With the support of my family, friends and everyone who read this, not only will I be able to have a great year, but I will do everything I can to help you have a great rest of 2019 as well.
