So I'm considering December a pretty successful month, achieving two out of two goals! Heading into January, I'm setting myself a few more goals in the hopes of getting 2016 off to a good start...
• Read four books: That's one per week, and should set the stage nicely for meeting my overall 2016 target of 25 books over the course of the year. I'm intending to spend my breaks at work reading, rather than mindlessly scrolling through Facebook on my phone.
• Clear out desk: I'm sure I've had this as a goal before and just ignored it, because my desk is truly a horrendous sight! I don't even know what's in most of the heaps, it really needs a damn good clear out; I'll probably throw a lot of things away, and hopefully it should make staying organised that little bit easier.
• See friends at least twice: This is another one which was part of my 2016 goals; with one thing and another, it's easy to let friendships fall by the wayside, so I want to make a conscious effort this year to see at least two friends, on at least two separate occasions, each month.
• Work on my fitness: I want to keep up swimming at least three times per week, hopefully swimming for 40 minutes rather than the 30 I've been doing. I also want to fit in at least one run per week to try and get my running fitness back a little. I feel like that's a target in itself, and I can work on distances once I've got my fitness back up!
Do you set yourself monthly goals? What are you hoping to achieve in January?
