So here’s a little summary of what my goals were for 2014, and how and if I accomplished them.
The original posts can be found in the January 2013 archive.
1. Play more Ukulele
So – I think I’ve played about the same amount of ukulele this past year as the year before. Its hard to tell, I didn’t play any gigs or anything. I think I played just for fun when I noticed it in the corner of my room.
2. Save more Money
I think I saved some money, though since I quit my day job, my stock pile is dwindling. Life is crazy sometimes.
3. Dress the part
I have started to dress the part! Over the summer I bought a whole bunch of nice summer dresses to wear to work, and I hardly ever wear sweatpants anymore! Go team.
4. Open up Shop
I DID have my Etsy shop open for about 3 months from June to August. It has since closed because I want to do some revamping. It did happen though!
5. Improve my Fitness
I was sidelined from running for the entire summer basically with a knee/hip injury. Since getting cleared by the Dr. I’ve been steadily going to the gym 1-2 times a week and running or walking most days. I think I’ve come to a way healthier place fitness-wise, both mentally and physically.
6. Blog More
Big fat FAIL on my part. I think I have less blog posts then last year. But I did get a full time job, run a marathon and decided to go back to school… not that thats an excuse or anything. At least I didn’t blog too much, those people are annoying.
7. Focus and be more Productive
Hmm, this is another one that is hard to gauge. I mean I would say I’m more productive just because I don’t really watch TV anymore (there isn’t time). This one might have not improved either.
8. Worry less and be more present
Ha. I can’t shake the worrying. I really need to meditate, every podcast I listen to and every book I read shouts the benefits of mediation on their mental state. Next year, mediation.
I can certainly say I think I bit off more then I can chew for 2014. I had a running injury because I was trying to run everyday, I took a full-time job maybe before I was ready to. I had some trouble buckling down.
As for 2015, I plan on doing a few posts about my goals for next year. If theres one thing I learned from last year it’s do less and do it better.
