You know how much I love making goals.Well with the move this past month I never was able to sit down and make a list of goals for November. So, I have decided to just make a list of goals that I’d like to accomplish and finish 2015 out strong.
Here are my 16 before 2016 goals:
#1 Blog Editorial Calendar
I would like to have my editoral calendar planned out for two months in advance and at least four posts written and scheduled at all times. I have always planned and hoped to have scheduled posts and I just started scheduling four at one time, I’d like to finish off the year and have January started – but with two posts a week instead of just one.
#2 Finish and Post Small Business Planner
I am so close to finishing it! So so close. I just need to sit down and f.i.n.i.s.h. it. Not quite sure why I am dragging my feet. But I gotta get it done and posted to my Etsy shop.
#3 Finish Your Best Year 2016
I am working on making a business plan for this coming year and really growing my Etsy shop. This book is an amazing productivity workbook and creative business planner and I am so excited to give it a try this coming year!
#4 Finish setting up my office
I’d like to have it all unpacked, set up and organized for the new year. Its getting there and I was finally able to get some work done in there this week. But it’s still a mess and a little all over the place.
#5 Regularly work out
We have a membership to a health club now that has child care (whoop whoop!). So after two years of being out of shape, I
have to need to regularly work out and I don’t have any excuses any more – so here’s to starting now before the holidays.
#6 Baby-proof the house
We got by without really baby proofing our last home, but now with two boys on the move and both extremely active we need to have this place completely baby proof. Plus it keeps our very curious toddler out of trouble.
#7 Catch up on sewing
So after three weeks, I am finally starting to get back into the swing of things. I wasn’t planning on not sewing for this long, I was hoping to only take a week off. But … life threw a couple curve balls and I am just starting to get all my holiday items done. I have SO much to get sewn and posted and not much time. I’ll let you know how it goes…
#8 Reach 200 sales at Buccio Baby Shop
I am less than 50 sales away from hitting that goal! Its a big goal, but I am gonna try!
#9 Get rid of ten more garbage bags of stuff
I just read The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing by Marie Kondo – and let me tell you, it is life changing. I still have too much stuff, so I’d like to get rid of ten more garbage bags full of stuff.
#10 Purchase my Camera
I have been eyeing this camera all year (well since it came out) and I am hoping to purchase it by the end of the year.
Get one! Hubby and I need to set up a monthly budget. We haven’t put one together before (at least together) so we really need to start planning out our money instead of being at it’s mercy.
#12 Find a church and mom’s group
I *think* I found one. But I am giving myself a couple more tries before I make a final decision. God is good and I feel his hand guiding me to places I would have never guessed. Thankful for his faithfulness and guidance!
#13 Find a babysitter
SO hard to do but SO necessary. Josiah and I need a date night badly. But I am so nervous about finding someone to watch our boys. We had the BEST babysitter back in PA, not sure anyone is gonna come close but I am sure gonna try and find her!
#14 Cook healthy meals
I’ve gotten really bad about doing this. We have been living by convenience recently, mostly because of the move but don’t want to continue. I’ve been better this past week, now just to keep it up.
#15 Try to set up a routine
I need to be better about my time and getting more done. My business can’t afford a baby sitter for a couple hours/days a week yet, so I’ve just got to be better about setting up a schedule for all of us. That means early mornings and the nap time hustle.
#16 Set my goals for 2016
Both monthly and for the year. I usually don’t like setting yearly goals but I need to for my business this year.
Yes, I’d like to accomplish ALL of those before the end of the year. What about you? What sort of things would you like to finish up before 2015 is over? I’d love to hear about them in the comments below!
