Similar to previous years, in 2024 I drafted a shorthand list of my goals that I can refer to throughout the year. Totaling 24 goals for 2024, I left four slots empty for goals that I plan to add during each quarter of the year.

For 2024, I also decided to organize my goals around the principles of my radical self-trust taxonomy. This is something that I’ve done in the past and this year seemed like a good opportunity to return to this structure. 

Like I have in the past, I chose several goals for 2024 that will take a while for me to achieve so that I can look forward to working on them all year long. Now that we’ve wrapped up Q1, it’s time to check in on my goals and see how things are going.

Here are my 24 goals for 2024 and the progress I’ve made so far:

Living My Core Values with Intention

(My core values are radical self-trust, creativity, recovery/self care, alignment, and holding space. I talk about these values in more depth in this blog post. I also share some strategies for identifying your core values in this podcast episode.)

  • Pay off 25% of our remaining mortgage (RST, alignment, self-care). I was able to make some extra payments to our mortgage in the first quarter of the year and we are a little over 40% complete with the number I was hoping to pay off this year. I’m thrilled with this progress in Q1.
  • Go on a self-designed business retreat (creativity, alignment). This hasn’t happened yet, but I’ve been thinking about some longer-term business ideas that I want to implement and I have some possible tasks I’d like to work toward to make this retreat productive and meaningful.
  • Add a weekly guided meditation option to the Prolific events calendar (creativity, holding space, self-care). Done! I started to offer a live guided meditation session on Sunday evenings and themes thus far have included things like gratitude, self-compassion, goal visualization, and welcoming in a new season.

Nurturing My Superpowers

(I define superpowers as the areas where one’s strengths and values overlap. When I cultivate my superpowers, I become more of who I am meant to be and I can offer more of my unique contributions to the world. While I can identify several different superpowers that I have, reading is an area that I want to continue to focus on this year since it helps the most with my value around recovery/self-care.)

  • Read at least 24 books per month and 300+ books throughout the year (see what I’m currently reading by connecting with me on Goodreads). So far, so good in the first three months of the year. I read over 80 books in Q1.
  • Complete a monthly Box Set Challenge where I read box sets of books that I already own. I’ve also been able to do this so far in the first three months of the year. My boxsets read so far include Throne of Glass, Thunder Point, and The Folk of the Air Trilogy.
  • Read Val McDermid’s Karen Pirie series (7 books). Four books done for this so far and I’m really enjoying it! Since this was adapted into a television series, I’m looking forward to checking that out once I’ve read all the books.
  • Keep up with posting monthly TBR and TBR debrief videos on YouTube. This has also been completed for the first three months of the year.
  • Read 12 nonfiction books that I already own (physical copies). I’ve read three books toward this goal so far: The Outermost House, The Book of Do, and The Listening Path.
  • Read a physical book in one sitting. This hasn’t happened yet.

Playfully Experimenting

(By playfully experimenting, I help to keep myself energized through trying new things and stretching myself in new areas.)

  • Try climbing at an indoor rock wall. Done! I was able to complete this over my spring break vacation.
  • Complete an alphabet reading challenge each month (choosing a random letter and picking 5 books from my Kindle that start with that letter) to read more books that I already own (you can see what I pick on my monthly TBR videos on my YouTube channel). This is completed for the first three months of the year.

Seeking Self-Knowledge

(Continually learning about myself gives me more clarity with my life’s direction as well as more peace with all the large and small decisions that I make.)

  • Return to a regular journaling practice. I’m journaling in my five-year journal, but I’m still not back to regular morning pages.
  • Find a good therapist and attend at least six sessions. Done!
  • Add pieces to my wardrobe that align with my personal style. Started. I purchased a couple of skirts, a new sweater, and some capri jeans for warmer weather. I also did a couple closet clean outs in Q1 and made donations to my local thrift store.

Practicing Loving-Kindness Toward Myself and Others

(I can offer more to others when I take care of myself, so prioritizing recovery time and self-care is a must for me.)

  • Log 20k minutes in the Peloton app by the end of the year. This is on track. I’ve logged over 7k minutes for the year so far through biking, walking, rowing, yoga, and meditation.
  • Re-watch 12 nostalgic movies. I’m kind of shocked to say this is done! In the first three months of the year I re-watched 12 movies. Some of my favorites were Now and Then, The Italian Job, The Martian, Juno, and Spotlight.
  • Find a dentist and get back to regular appointments. This hasn’t happened yet.

Settling into My Life’s Purpose

(A big component of my life’s purpose is helping people create and engage in meaningful change. I do this through leadership, coaching, writing, and things like modeling aspects of radical self-trust in what I share on my podcast and blog.)

  • Cross the 1800+ coaching experience hours mark in my coaching log. This is making good progress and I’m on track to hit 1800 by the end of the year.
  • Read four coaching-related books. No progress on this one yet.
  • Write a nonfiction book (goal: at least 50k words). I made some progress on this over my spring break, but I also ended up questioning my original plan for what I wanted to write this year. I would say this goal is about 20-25% complete right now, so pretty much on track.


  • Complete final book publication tasks. My extra goal for Q1 was getting all the final work done for the second edition of The Blended Course Design Workbook, which will come out later this year. Runner up: I also took on some new work responsibilities in Q1 so those also get an honorable mention.
  • TBD for Q2
  • TBD for Q3
  • TBD for Q4

How are things going with your 2024 goals now that Q1 is wrapping up?
