After completing my Powersheets Prep Week in December, I officially set my 2020 goals. This year, Powersheets has you set eight goals, instead of the previous year’s 10. I’m not totally set on narrowing things down – I really had 10 in mind – but it does allow for me to focus on higher priority items.
In 2020, I really want to be the best version of myself. I feel like I did a lot in 2019 – I flipped a house, sold said house, moved into a new home, traveled, was in multiple weddings, hit some big goals at work… it was a really productive year. I never actually shared what my goals were on my blog, though, and vulnerability might have been a big factor in that. This year, I’m going to be super specific here and list them out.
I’m focusing on three main areas in 2020: health, work, and spiritual/personal growth. After going through my strengths and weaknesses, these were the areas I felt like I needed to improve upon most in. There are, of course, things I want to do aside from these eight things – don’t worry, home remodel projects are included in my “other” category! – but here are my big ones.
1. Hit my yearly rocks at work.
My full time job is my #1 priority. I absolutely love what I do, and I’m hoping for some big accomplishments in 2020. This goal isn’t probably of interest to you, but it is the first time I’ve included my work goals in my Powersheets.
2. Go to adoration once a month.
This goal is inspired by my grandparents. My dad speaks a lot about his mom, my grandma, and tells stories about how she used to take him to morning mass on days he had football games and how she and a group of women would always be in church praying the rosary. Last summer, I went through my grandpa’s letters from when he was stationed in Korea. I think he mentioned going to mass in almost every letter. These were some major signs. My grandma had nine children but still found time to go to daily mass. My grandpa was literally in the army, but still found time to go to mass. The least I can do is spend an additional hour/month in adoration dedicated to them.
3. Grow my savings to my goal, then increase my 401(k) percentage.
I met with my wealth advisor at Carson Wealth last month to go over my financial plan. I was contemplating investing, but he actually instructed me against it (something I love about Carson – not forced into anything and fully beneficial to me). We set a number I want to grow my savings to, and once I hit that number, I will increase my 401(k) percentage – hopefully on my 27th birthday! That is truly an adult birthday present, haha.
4. Grow my instagram to 5,000 followers.
I’ve been blogging for a few years, but haven’t been consistent about Instagram. In 2020, I really want to connect with the greatest amount of people and grow my audience/inspire others.
5. Read 32 books.
I’m keeping my reading goal the same as last year. I felt like this was a high, but achievable number!
6. Lose 25lbs.
I hope writing it here will really help me stay true to this goal. I want to take my Peloton workouts to the next level and focus on consistency. Actually, my “word of the year” is consistency. 🙂
7. Wake up by 6:30AM each morning.
I am NOT a morning person. It’s my biggest life struggle. If I were to wake up just a little earlier, I’d have so much more motivation going into my mornings.
8. Plan a trip out of the country.
I don’t have to actually travel out of the country yet, but I want to have something planned. This is a bucket list item I’ve been wanting to cross off.
So, what are your 2020 goals? I’d love to compare and help you achieve them!
