I am sitting here, handwriting my goals… when I realized I type 75 WPM and have a blog I haven’t updated in 3 months. Why not update my goal list via the interwebs and share with all my accountability subscribers (woah – didn’t know subscribing had a catch huh?).
I have broken my goals down by month – from Dec 2013 to Dec 2014. I have also established Year 2014 Goals. Setting goals is an aim for me to hit a desired result in my life. Some goals are serious and others are serious. What I mean by that is, I am serious about my goals. I’ve written down my goals since I could pick up a pen (just because they weren’t legible doesn’t make them any less important). I feel like I am pretty accomplished by my young age of 24. I also feel like there is a lot more I could accomplish (like… a lot). I do not, however, expect to accomplish every goal I ever write down. There is just something about writing down and visualizing achievement that makes me feel more motivated – and therefore more likely to complete my goals.
Here we go Accountability Subscribers…
My goals for the next 13 months:
December: Trip to Disney
January: CompTIA Certified
February: $3k Stashed (untouchable for emergency fund only)
March: Take German Classes
April: Take Dance Lessons
May: Stay on a strict budget and save for Germany
June: Paint a canvas picture (maybe while drinking wine?)
July: Cut my hair and Donate
August: $6k Stashed (untouchable for emergency fund only)
September: Do something nice for someone that cannot be pointed back to myself
October: Trip to Germany
November: Complete NaNoWriMo 30day Challenge
December: Buy Gallon of Starbucks coffee and hand out to homeless
– Year 2014 Goals –
One year of monthly blogging
Write a short eBook
Get a promotion
Goals are such an important part of my life, and I could easily say, writing down goals has seriously contributed to my happiness level. I plan on writing another blog filled with a more broad life-long bucket list. I found a lot of my inspiration here.
Feeling inspired? Write!

Ashlee.. I’m not sure how I came across your blog, but we kind of know each other. And I may be able to help with one portion of your list. 🙂
Which part? 🙂 it’s a big list lol
Well, I currently live in Germany for the next 3 years. I have an extra room and that could possibly lengthen your stay by saving you money. 🙂 I’m not sure if you recognize my name or not being as we only met on Facebook and only have a handful of people that we both know.
I am trying to find you on Facebook?
I will add you on facebook. I deleted my previous account.
