Anyone else need a little levity for this New Year? In past years, I’ve set a series of goals and then broken them down into the objectives that will help me accomplish them.
As we near the end of 2020, that felt a little heavy.
This year, I decided to draft more of a shorthand list of my goals that I can refer to throughout the year. Some of these are tied to longer-term strategies and plans, but others are just for fun.
Inspired in part by the Happier podcast’s 20 for 2020 goals challenge, here are my 21 goals for 2021:
- Read Anna Karenina.
- Pay off our mortgage.
- Complete my 300-hour yoga teacher training.
- Hire someone to install cabinets in our laundry room.
- Order a new mattress for our bed.
- Teach 60+ hours of yoga throughout the year — to hit 100 total hours by the end of 2021 — so that I can apply for my next credential (you can sign up for a free 1:1 virtual yoga session with me here).
- Hit 1,000 hours of coaching experience (I’m at just over 800 hours now).
- Earn a Disciplined Agile Scrum Master (DASM) credential.
- Complete a Yin yoga teacher training.
- Figure out the next book I’m going to write and make progress on the proposal / manuscript.
- Accredit my coach training program through the International Coaching Federation.
- Get a COVID-19 vaccine when they become available in my area.
- De-clutter my closet and dresser and donate clothes that I no longer need/want.
- Read 100+ books throughout the year (connect with me on Goodreads to see what I’m reading).
- Design and launch a new project management offering for my business.
- Watch all the Marvel movies (there are 24 — and counting).
- Match or surpass this year’s business revenue.
- Get a haircut (as I write this, the last one I had was almost 11 months ago).
- Finish all the books in Elizabeth George’s Inspector Lynley series (there are six books remaining as I write this).
- Take more walks.
- Start a regular meditation practice.
