Welcome to a new year! Here's a new accountability/goals thread. For those of you who haven't participated before, this thread is a place for you to post about any goals you might have. They could be big or small goals; short or long term. I usually do monthly goals, but you could do daily or weekly goals if you'd like. Really the whole point of this thread is to figure out what works for you and what helps you. You can give and receive encouragement in achieving your goals.
Personally, I have a lot going this month, so I'm going to set relatively few goals goals. I have 2 doctors appointments that I need to get to, which are part of the reason why I'm busy, but its hard for me to get to appointments so I'm counting it as a goal. Once I do that, I'll probably get a few referrals, so I should make some other appointments as well. I want to do some more socializing, hopefully watching at least 1 more movie with my friend. I start college on the 13th, and I would like to work on stress management and letting go of my perfectionism.
What are everyone else's goals?
Don't give up what you want most for what you want now.
Second goal: keep up doing well what I actually do well (workout and mindfull meditation)
Third goal: plan something for my paid holiday (last january week). Maybe a trip in near ski ressort, maybe a trip to amsterdam, but something
4th: do something about acquiring a flat.
First goal: "dry january"> 4 days remaining, until now, it's a 100% success.
Second goal: ok for workout but nok for mindfull meditation. I'm now off track for 2 weeks (at least). I need to do something about it. My fantasies are very strong and my real life feel miserable.
Third goal: more or less a success, I have booked an hotel in a ski resort (Auron in French Alps) and a transportation for thursday and friday (only 2 days / one night). I should have booked the full week, weeks ago.
4th: I had an appointment to visit a flat, during my lunch break. I was on time! but the real estate was not! The building was however really ugly, and despite apologizes from the real estate agent for the stand up, I didn't ask for another appointment. I may change my mind next week because the price looked good.
My monthly goals: -Get caught up in reading and stay caught up. -Follow a plan for getting work done and stick with it for the rest of the month. -Get a head start on long term projects/assignments -Get long term projects done early so plenty of time for help and corrections -Find out more information on getting free peer torturing on campus (and find a way to get it) -Always be super prepared for labs -Get up early enough to get to class on time
-haven't gotten caught up yet -haven't stuck with any plan long -haven't been ahead on long term projects -done some toward tutoring, but not enough -haven't been very prepared for labs -haven't been getting up early enough
I haven't done much for my goals. Keep forgetting to come back and check them to stay on track. I'll keep the same goals for this month and I hope to do better this time.
