I achieved all my goals in 2015

I achieved all my goals in 2015. In fact I achieved them a couple of months ago. So, this is the recap.

1. Keep the Good Things Jar. I want to fill a jar with notes of small good things that happened, things that I’ll forget in a few months and I’ll put them in the jar. At the end of the year, I’m going to read them. It’s not my first jar, but I hope will be better than last one. I usually forget to add the notes.
Done. This is the jar, although it’s not exactly as filled as I would have liked, but it’s a big jar and it happened that I forgot to write some notes.

2. Good things. I want to start a weekly post on my blog, entitled: Good things this week. I read a few similar posts on other blogs and it sounds great to be able to remember small good things after a long period, especially when it’s very likely that I would forget them. It will be like an online version of Good Things Jar. I don’t want to feel like I’ve set a target, 5 or 10, because I would feel I have to reach that number. This will help me remember the good stuff even if I forget to put notes in the good things jar.
Done. I managed to write 28 posts. This means 2+ per month. It wasn’t realistic to write weekly for a lot of reasons. So, for next year, I’ll continue with the series, but without any targets.


3. Run in a race. Probably a 10k, don’t think I can go higher than 10k. Signing up for a race will push me to do something that I don’t like: running. While I love exercising and lifting weights is what I enjoy most, when it comes to cardio, I can’t avoid it enough. I hope that signing up for a run will trigger my very competitive side and will give me the motivation I need to start running as a training.
Last year I went for a run only once (this is how much I love running). I could run 4.2km in 31 minutes, so it’s not that bad.

Done. I couldn’t run a 10k as I had a knee injury in February and 10k would have been to much. But I ran a 5k race: Run or Dye. It was fun, I loved it.



4. Try a new sport. I just hope I have time. Kayaking is on the top of the list, last year we’ve bought a kayak and life jackets for us and for the dog. I also would like to try horseback riding, fencing and archery… well if I can do all of them, I can say I’m on the path to become a Knight.
Done. I tried 2 sports, kayaking and shooting. I enjoyed both a lot and I would like to do them again.

5. Write more. I don’t write as often as I would like, so I want to write more. Not every day, but more than last year.
Done. I wrote over 200 posts this year. I would like to continue in the same way next year, if I have the time.

  1. Yay awesome well done for ticking everything off. This sets you up really nicely for this year’s goals, too 🙂

  2. Glad you achieved all your goals! Wow, over 200 posts is amazing! I like the idea of a Good Things jar, I think I’ll give it a go next year, too 🙂 x

  3. The good things jar sounds like a good idea. Maybe I should incorporate something like that into my life too. We tend to overlook the positive.

    It’s great that you tried out and took part in those sports!

    I think when people sincere about reaching their goals, they tend to be more focused in it. By the end of the year, it’s more likely to have happened. Congratulations on your success this year.

  4. You can do more than a 10k. YOU CAN YOU CAN.

    In 18 months I went from not being able to run a mile, to doing a half marathon. I find fitness comes really quickly if you’re consistent.

    Good luck with your goals.
