2023 was a strange year when it came to my goals. Whilst I feel as though I achieved many things throughout the year, most of them were not on my list of goals.
My 2022 Goals
- Read 22 books
- Blog consistently
- Publish YouTube videos consistently
- Be more aware of what I eat
- Exercise more frequently
- Conscious purchases
- Make more of an effort with studying
I know I haven’t fully achieved any of these goals particularly however I can say that I am more conscious of the things I purchase and make less impulsive purchases. I definitely exercise more frequently, and although this may not be intense exercise I am more active than what I was at the beginning of the year.
Why Didn’t I Achieve My Goals?
In all honesty this is pretty simple, a lack of discipline and focus. As the year progressed my attention focused on other things and I put these goals to the back of my mind. This is definitely something I need to be more mindful of with the goals I set for 2023. I also think that the majority of my goals were not specific enough which leads them to be more down to interpretation.
What Lessons Have I Learnt?
Going forward in 2023, as mentioned above, my goals will be more specific so that I can track them throughout the year. I am also going to have several check ins throughout the year so that I can reflect on my goals in 2023 throughout the year and my progress towards them.
