Happy New Year!!!
I do something different than most. When I make new year's resolutions, they are for all of the new years ahead.
I believe you can't always complete your goals in one year and shouldn't have to.
Each year should be used to reflect on the long term and short term goals set in the previous year. I encourage you to give it a try.
Start with short term goals that you know you can achieve.
This will give you a confidence boost because they're easy to complete and will get the ball rolling. It's okay if they're general and not that specific.
My short term goals are:
Be specific with your long term goals.
These need to be more precise, especially because you'll have these to accomplish over the year. Follow the SMART goal format. Simple, Measurable, Achievable, Reliable and Timely
*I'll show you one example of a SMART goal, and state the rest of mine for simplicity sake.
My long term goals are:
Specific: buy a $400-600,000 2 bedroom house
Measurable: by the amount we save each month
Reliable: Yes, We've been saving X amount per month at our bank
Timely: by 2025
2. Own less things
3. Being successful in both my professions
4. Become a group exercise instructor
5. Speak fluent Greek
6. Learn more about investing, financing and banking. Oh God...I'm yawning already.
7. Read more
8. Earn more money
9. Give more to charities (currently if I'm at the store and asked to donate I do it! but I should do more)
10. Speak more eloquently (reading more will help with this!)
And of course finish my book!
