New year New targets.
New year New targets.
Well the New Year is officially here and it’s about half an hour until I start my first shift of the year. And I was thinking last night about what I want to achieve this year. Having thought it over and seriously looked at what it is I want from my life I realised there really isn’t much. But I would like to tighten a few things up. I will go into some details with each thing but here is a list. So here is my list of New Year New Targets.
- Improve my Finances.
- Book a 2019 Holiday
- Fun Days out
- Seeing my family
- Upkeep on my blogs
These are my five targets I have set for 2018 to achieve. I will start in reverse order in explaining each in more detail. You will see though there isn’t the usual ”Eat less take aways” or “lose 4 stone” etc of course I would like to be in better physical condition at the end of 2019 to what I am currently but I want to do that with no pressure of setting it as a yearly goal.
Upkeep on my Blogs
So I run 2 blogs DadsdoitRight and Crypto-noob. Dadsdoitright is my main one and I have neglected this in the later part of the year. I haven’t updated it in a while and want to correct that. Now setting a goal on this is quite a task what do I go for. Do I go for a certain post count or do I aim to try and get passive views etc. Its difficult to say as a post count may push me to do more small and ultimately meaningless posts that lack content. On the other hand of Passive traffic to do this I need content and content means more posts. So I would think more meaningful and content rich posts are needed to drive traffic and hope this becomes Passive by the year end.
Seeing My Family.
I see my direct family each and every day a benefit of working from home. But I don’t see my dad very often and I would like to change this moving forward. Other members of my family aunties uncles etc I haven’t seen for some time I would like this to change. We used to see each other very often until my Nanna passed last year.
Fun days out.
This is something we often do anyway but I would like to make them more regular maybe one a month. We often go places like Whitby or local parks. There is things I would love to do this year such as Blackpool Lights, Durham Lumiere, Castles and other historic sights. Places that are both fun and educational for me and the family.
Book a 2019 Holiday
So this will be the one that costs me the most for obvious reasons. We have a 2018 holiday already booked but have never managed to do back to back holidays abroad as a family. This is something I want to change. But with this there is so many factors, When, Where, Price, How long for, Facilities, Board and more. I will have more regular updates about this and finding the right deal for us all.
Improving my finances.
This is something I have been doing for a while now. But I want some spare cash for me. To do this I am looking at ways of earning money in my spare time like Swagbucks and InstaGC. I am also branching out into Bitcoin and earning this for free where I can. I am really excited to see where I can get too by the end of 2018 financially.
So what are your New year aims. What do you want to achieve. And most of all how are you going to do it. Let me know and don’t forget to drop me your ideas on achieving mine.
May I take this moment to wish you all the best for the new year.
