Goals always get me in the right mindset for a prosperous future. That’s why I’ve collected my goals for the month, personal and blogging that is, in a previous post. Being in college is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I love being able to learn something new all the time and study what I love while I do it. This is probably why I want another three degrees after I finish this one… Regardless, I need to set goals for myself in order to make sure I keep myself on track for success.
#1 Reach 10,000 steps at least 3 days a week. This is a bit harder to keep up with right now because I am not allowed to have my phone in my pocket or on me at all at work so it stays up front. I’d probably get a bajillion steps in each day if I was able to but such is life. I want to make this goal specifically for days that I won’t be working.
#2 Set a gym/work-out schedule and don’t stray from it. I always say I’m going to go to the gym every single day or work out at home but I do it for a couple of weeks and then flake off. I can’t keep doing that. I need to make a schedule and stick to it. I think setting something more realistic like 3 days a week would be easier than every single day.
#3 Continue my streak of all A’s every semester. I’ve gotten all A’s for at least two semesters (maybe even 3 but I can’t remember at the moment) now and I want to keep that trend going. I have a whole post about how to get straight A’s (using my own methods), if you’re interested.
#4 Read at least three books for fun. I always neglect doing things for me during the semester. I either get too caught up in school or am just too tired to want to do things that I enjoy. I’m currently reading a book and I want to keep up with my reading throughout this semester. I think setting a goal for one book a month will surely help!
#5 Stay involved in my organizations. As you all know, I accepted a bid from Alpha Delta Pi this semester so I am very excited to add this on to the organizations that I take part in at my university. I am also president of our local Student Council for Exceptional Children, vice president of our Kappa Delta Pi chapter, and vice president of social media for our National Society of Collegiate Scholars chapter. This, as you can imagine, should keep me pretty busy (which is how I like it!).
#6 Take time out for myself. This is going to be the hardest one. I am always so focused on school and helping everyone else that I never take time for me. I will not do this anymore. I am going to go out with friends, have a glass of wine at night, binge watch Netflix, read those books I set a goal for, and just relax sometimes. It may seem scary (ha) but I know I can do it if I really stick to my goals.
That is all for my goals for this semester. I can’t believe that it this time of the year again already. I know it happens twice for me but I get equally excited every time (until all of those assignments start rolling in). I can’t wait to see how I do with this goals.
