Personal Goals for 2016 – How I did

Last year I finished all my goals, but this year Snowdon caught me out. Anyway, I did everything else and I’m pleased. I have new ideas of goals for next year. This is how I did.


1. Good things jar. DONE! I wrote the notes at the beginning of the year, but kept forgetting about it. So I don’t have a lot of notes at the moment. I will try one more year, maybe I will be more consistent. Even so, I think I did pretty good.

2. Hike to the top of Snowdon. I said that if it’s on the list I’ll have to do it. I didn’t.

3. Cross a few things from that 40 before 40 list. DONE! I didn’t set up a specific number, but I did quite a few this year:
4. Grow edible flowers.
9. Buy a caravan or at least make a trip with a rented caravan.
11. Sew a dress/skirt from scratch.
14. Do something I’m scared of.
24. Complete a 30 days working out challenge without missing a day.
27. Buy a collectible with Michael Schumacher.
34. Do more than 200 push-ups in a workout.
40. Buy a membership somewhere.

4. Read 3 biographies. DONE! There is Something I’ve Been Dying to Tell You, by Linda Bellingham; Common sense rules: What You Really Need to Know about Business by Deborah Meaden; The way I see it. Rants, revelations and rules for life by Alan Sugar and Coco Chanel (Critical Lives) by Linda Simon.

5. Take on 5 challenges. DONE! I did: Smoothie challenge in June and I still do it, with a little twist; 30 Days Push Up Challenge and 365 Project, technically is not over yet, as we still have a few days in the year, but it’s going to good; I want to keep it next year too. Also there a couple of challenges related to blogging, the monthly  posts about farm/mill, cooking updates and reviews.  In total there are more than 5.

Did you set up goals for this year? How did you do?

  1. It looks like you’ve done pretty well with your goals and you were able to cross quite a few things off! Well done!

    I made a couple of goals and I think I’ve done fairly well with them. I’m going to write a post in the new year reviewing them in more detail but I’m pretty happy with how I did!

  2. You did really well with your goals. Maybe you’ll make Snowdon next year. I’m certainly hoping to visit next year!

    I managed just one out of my three goals this year. I’ve learned that when setting goals for the year I should make sure that I’m truly passionate about my goals or else I won’t stick to them, hence why this year I’m just setting one major goal; buy a house.

  3. Looks like you’ve smashed your goals lovely! I had a few things on my list but my top one was to get an apprenticeship – and i got one, yay!

  4. You’ve done so well with your goals this year! I need to review mine and see how Im doing with them. Well done.
