A new year means it’s time for resolutions and new life goals!
It’s time to promise ourselves we’ll be better, faster and more dedicated to whatever it is we want in life. I’m no exception to this rule so these are my goals for 2016!
- Read 30 books in one year
I need a way to get into reading again. As a kid and teenager I read any book that came my way but for the last few years the amount of books I’ve read can be counted on my two hands. Really not good! From the beginning I set up a goal of 50 books but realized that I don’t want to overwhelm myself. 30 books are still a lot of books and if I top that then that’s awesome.
- Make 1 youtube video / week
I want to push myself to do the things I like and be better at them. I want to learn to be a good editor and to be comfortable in front of the camera and for that I need to practice regularly so I sometime in the future can make the good stuff that inspires me.
- Write and post 3 blogposts / week
This blog was started originally because I wanted to inspire others to take the leap and just go out and see the world. And while part of the blog is still dedicated to that topic it has more become a place where I write about what matters to me and topics I find interesting or funny. But I’ve struggled to keep a regular schedule so this is a way for me to get better at that part.
- Write 200 000 words for my many different stories
- Finish 2 first drafts and revision 1 draft.
I love writing! And I’ve been doing it basically since we got the first family computer back when I was 11. The amount of stories and drafts I’ve begun is ridiculous, but up until this day I’ve only been able to finish 2 first drafts. So that is going to change this year and for that I need to write until I can write the two magical words- THE END. After that it’s all about revision. Revision, revision, revision! Something I’m not very familiar with, but I plan to change that during 2016! Woho!
I’m giving myself these goals because I want to stop talking and start acting. It will demand a lot of hard work and a lot of dedication but I have a good feeling and I think 2016 will be an amazingly good year.
A bonus goal for me this year is to realize and appreciate what I have and take better care of those things in my life. To not take anything for granted.
Do you have any resolutions or goals for 2016? Whatever they may be I hope you work hard and get all your dreams come true!
