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…

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.
