If you’ve been around for a while, you know that one of my favorite things to do each year is to set annual goals.

This activity helps me to think about where I want to spend my time, energy, and attention in the coming year. Setting annual goals also helps me to consistently revisit a number of important questions:

  • What do I want to prioritize?
  • What do I want to let go of?
  • What do I want to put off to a future year?
  • How do my goals align with my values?

For 2024, I 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. 

As a reminder, my radical self-trust taxonomy has six focus areas:

  • Living my core values with intention
  • Nurturing my superpowers
  • Playfully experimenting
  • Seeking self-knowledge
  • Practicing loving-kindness toward myself and others
  • Setting into my life’s purpose

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. Also, similar to previous years, you’ll see that I left four slots empty for goals that I want to add during each quarter of the year. 

(To hear me talk through this year’s goal list, check out this podcast episode.)

Here are my 24 goals for 2024:

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)
  • Go on a self-designed business retreat (creativity, alignment)
  • Add a weekly guided meditation option to the Prolific events calendar (creativity, holding space, recovery/self-care)

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.)

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
  • 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)

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
  • Find a good therapist and attend at least six sessions
  • Add pieces to my wardrobe that align with my personal style

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
  • Re-watch 12 nostalgic movies
  • Find a dentist and get back to regular appointments

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
  • Read four coaching-related books
  • Write a nonfiction book (goal: at least 50k words)


  • TBD for Q1
  • TBD for Q2
  • TBD for Q3
  • TBD for Q4
