Back again with I Must Confess via My Home Truths.
Mid way through the year. Time to look at goals. I wrote a few posts about how I didn’t have goals, and then about how I lied about having no goals for 2016. I know. It’s confusing. But hey, that’s my brain sometimes.
2016 so far… has been good, I’ve got to say. There has been a lot of hard work in it though. I’m half way through a graduate certificate, I have been at a new job all year and settled in through very challenging circumstances. Sure, I did slip in my blogging consistency during the pointy end of the semester, but that happens as you learn to balance new and different challenges.
My biggest goal was to feel like I’ve achieved something, but to also not let my shiny object syndrome take me in three million directions so that I can’t achieve anything.
I think so far I’ve done pretty well, actually. I certainly do have other projects I’ve started this year (cough two other websites cough) but they are not a priority. I log into them a max of twice a month. They are backseat projects until I have finished studying. I’ve got some automation in place to help slowly grow their social media this year, but frankly it’s kind of set and forget.
I didn’t set specific goals for 2016, because I didn’t know how much time I would have for anything. And at least that kept me feeling relaxed and pressure free (well, apart from writing giant uni essays).
As for the rest of the year… well. I am starting to struggle to keep my shiny object syndrome at bay, lets just say that much 🙂
How has 2016 gone so far with your goals?
