Goals are meant to be written down.


There was a time that I did not write down my goals. Short term or long term, I stored goals in my head.

That method was lacking some punch and still does.

At the beginning of 2018 I wrote down a list of goals for the year.

As I look back, it is amazing what I was able to accomplish.

To give a highlight of the list, I wanted to devote more time to my family and my craft because I was spending too much time on idle entertainment i.e. video games or Netflix.

6 months later, I unplugged the TV and playstation 4. I still miss the playstation, but when I have the urge to play my favorite game, Madden Football, I think about the time I have available for my family , writing or reading.

I took it a step further to convert our dining room area into a study with a whiteboard to promote more time on my crafts and goals.

At 27 years old, I didn’t want to look up at 30 be stagnant.

I needed drastic measures, and it has paid off.

I might have to cut back on Netflix this year to meet 2019 goals. Especially if they keep producing movies like Birdbox.

What are your goals for 2019? Whatever they are, get them out of your head, and write them down.
