So it has been another year and 2017 is fast approaching. These are the goals that I have decided and set for myself for 2017.
- Make 100k during 2017
Now you might be thinking woah, this is a really big goal. Yeah it is, it’s going to be a big challenge trying to achieve this and it seems absolutely crazy if I can reach this. But that’s what goals are about! Being large enough to scare you and it will be insane when you achieve it!
What I intend to do to reach this goal: Finish up on my course and launch it soon. I will possibly look to create another course next year. I am also in the process of drafting an eBook so that is another source of income once completed. I will continue to look for investment opportunities in the markets and look for new venture opportunities next year. A 100k is a lot but a year is a long time, so I am excited for this!
- A new challenge every 3 weeks
I find that I get very passive about life if I am not trying to get out of my comfort zone and push my boundaries. This is a method I am going to undertake to encourage myself to get out there and do more new stuff. I’m going to aim to do something new every 3 week and mix up my routine
What I intend to do to reach this goal: Look to my interests and passions, look at activities that always intrigued me as a kid but I didn’t managed to try.
- Read 26 books
Books are great for learning, there’s no way around it. The more you read, the more knowledge you get. I did attempt this during 2016, but I only managed to get to 16. I am determined to achieve it during 2017.
What I intend to do to reach this goal: Just keep reading
- Regular updates to TheTirelessWorker.com
So my last goal is definitely going to be about my website! It has been an amazing experience and wonderful learning process since I begun my website. The challenge of starting my own website felt very daunting after I realized the amount of work I had to put in. I decided to just keep focusing on the next step and I kept telling myself it’ll get easier over time once all the basics are set up.
Even though I am still in the process of improving and learning new tips on what I should look out for to improve my website, I am still very proud of myself for how far I’ve come. But one of the most unexpected takeaways from this, I didn’t know of the Personal Finance community online.
You can be a mom, dad, retiree or anybody but there is a very strong and welcoming community online for PF bloggers. I’ve met people who are really nice and seen how close some of them are. This was really unexpected, I just thought it would only be about writing and posting articles online. However nothing really beats the joy of seeing new comments on what you write. Huge thanks to everyone who left comments or shared my stuff, you know who you are!
What I intend to do to reach this goal: 2017 is probably going to be a pretty busy year, but I am still going to aim to write a new article every week and I intend to continue to share any great article that I come across!
So these my goals that I will be focusing on for 2017 and I like the idea of having goals as they will give you something to aim for and a direction of where you’re headed. But before I move onto 2017, I would like to say that I am thankful for everything that has happened in 2016. All the lessons that I’ve learnt whether good or bad and all the experiences that made me a wiser and better person. 2016 was pretty amazing and it’s time to close a great year but I am ready for whatever 2017 is going to bring at me! So let’s all get to work and make 2017 our best year yet!
Let me know in the comments below what are your goals for 2017 and why did you picked that goal? Thanks again for reading!
