I have used the same little journal to write my goals in since 2014. Kind of like my 5 year journal, it lets me see history...and as y'all have figured out, I love seeing the tapestry created by history.
In 2014 I decided to focus on categories and sub-categories and have just continued those. It is interesting to review what I've accomplished and what went by the wayside.
Along with history and polka dots, I also have a thing for alliteration. My categories all start with the letter H. Heart....Home....Head....Health....Hijinks. The subcategories under each are where I focus my goals.
Heart- goals for spiritual, relationships, community.
Home-goals for family, household management type things.
Head-goals for personal growth and career goals.
Health-goals for exercise, diet and rest.
Hijinks-goals for fun things from bigger ideas like travel to intentional daily celebrations.
Before 2014 I'm not sure what happened to my written goals. I don't know what I accomplished or not. I love that I can look back over the last few years and see what happened...or not...what I want to continue to focus on...or not...how I have lived my life...or not.
For 2017, it will be double or nothing. Somehow. Join me?
