I'm fine with the first two :p
I choose:
1) Being happy
2) Reading more (in english)
Even though I haven't made any big New Year's resolutions this year, I would choose these two. The only thing I promised myself actually is to learn to read books in English :)

Basically i am dragging the same goals through the years and hope to achieve them THIS time. The business goal is rather new but necessary after three shitty years due to worldwide and personal health issues. Let's see how external hurdles and internal sabotaging skills are doing this year. 🙄

So, i still aim to…
- reach normal weight
- be able to do proper push-ups
- run at all, then run 5K
- improve my business, aka get more clients and earn more money (there is some plan and numbers behind this)
- socialize more
- travel

I can tell after the first week of the year: There's room to improve but i am still positive.
:break:

Read at least 5 books this year.

It may not be much, but it's still 5 times more than I read in previous years. I used to love books as a kid, but in my adult life I developed a reading OCD, which basically ruined my leisure reading.

So I'm taking small steps to improve it. Gonna incorporate it into my own ERP therapy.

"If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water."
So, so many! But I want them all done NOW. I have to convince myself I have all year to reach my goals, and remember to track my progress :LOL:

1) Read 275 books this year, 50 of them nonfiction
2) Three Darebee programs and 4 challenges
3) Make one skirt a month in different styles and fabrics to practice my sewing
4) learn to make biscuits that don't taste like glue :sus:
5) at least two 'no spend ' days a week to save money to buy my own house

Whew! But I have all year, and a shiny new productivity journal to document the journey - let's do this! :yas:

"If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water."
Yeah, it's a lot :LOL:. I read all the time. Like, ALL the time. During every meal, to relax after work and before bed, while I'm waiting for a tank to drain or tea to brew. ALL the time. I also read pretty fast - lots of practice.

Mostly, though, it's because I Do Not Finish books often and easily. If I'm not really into a book by the time I've finished 10%, I put it down and move on. And it's easy to read a whole book when you're into it, you know?:whaa:

Physical improvement is a constant goal for me. So it doesn't make sense to make it a resolution.

I didn't actually formally make any resolutions (I never do), but since I'm seeing the list, I'm thinking reading more is a good one.

In fact, I'm thinking of replacing almost all entertainment with reading.

I already am. For the past month. Reading four hours or more depending on the day. (Sounds a lot, but I'm unemployed rn.)

I've been running through an average of three to four books a week.

"Building good habits"
I'm on a quarterly planning cycle for my business, so I roll that into my personal goals as well. I get to play this game 4 times a year! Hooray!

I always start with a "utopia", an imagined future life, and roll out the steps I'll need to take to get there. This time around, after almost three years of dealing with family stuff, relocating twice, and growing up a whole bunch, my overall goal is to "glow up". And since that's not a one-and-done type of goal, it's mostly broken down into daily habits, plus some projects I want to check off as I go.

A week or two into it, and it sure is weird to have the focus back on myself rather than on external goals. But it's going fairly well, I think.

I gave up on resolutions a long time ago. They never last a week, and sometimes not even a day, so why waste my time with them?

Sending my brother a card for his birthday. Really. This year, for sure.
I'm back and can report that I completed my resolution. I send my brother a card for his birthday. Actually, it was twenty cards. Because I haven't sent him a card the last twenty birhtdays. But I had collected all of them. And this year, I mailed them all.
