Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful start into 2019.
I started this year with some unusual 2018 goals. Today I want to look back and actually evaluate what I achieved and what got neglected. If you haven’t read my blog post on my 2018 goals, read it here.
Resolution #1 – Get Uncomfortable
Even though I didn‘t blog consistently and didn‘t really committed to a niche I was able to put myself in uncomfortable positions more and get out of my shell. I achieved that mainly by being a flight attendant for 8 months before uni. It really challenged me to approach people. It strengthened my confidence in some way. I‘m definitely less shy than I was before.
Resolution #2 – Be Shameless
I‘m not sure if I really was able to achieve this goal. I feel like I still have a lot of shame for my dreams and goals. This is an ongoing challenge for me and I‘m still a work in progress. However, I have made some progress in the right direction. I‘m less secretive but still very secretive. I also don‘t care as much what other people think of me. I would say I didn‘t achieve this goal but I‘m heading in the right direction.
Resolution #3 – Commit to Yourself
This one got kind of neglected but at the same time I have achieved it somewhat. I mean I told my self in #1 that I would get uncomfortable and out of my shell and I did. I think I will definitely carry this resolution into 2019. For now, let‘s say I somewhat achieved this goal. (I‘m giving myself the benefit of the doubt here :-))
Resolution #4 – Be on Time, Every Time
This was a big issue I had in the past. I would always be late when I had planned something with my friends. So 2018 was going to be the year I quit that bad habit, in order to not lose all my friends due to my lack of time management. I can pridefully say that I achieved this goal. There were sometimes (I can count them on one hand) that I was a teeny tiny bit too late, but even my friends told me that I’m unusually timely. This is a big win, my friends!
Resolution #5 – Money Challenge
I actually was able to save more than 6800 CHF this year, by doing this challenge. I‘m super proud of myself. I didn‘t think I would make it since there were some months where unexpected expenses occured and I damn near had to starve but it all turned well. I‘m not going to challenge myself to save money this year however, I want to be more mindful in what I invest my money in. If there is one thing I learned from money this year is that I spend too much on food!
P.s: One thing that helped me alot to save so much was budgeting. If you need some help with that or don‘t know where to start check out my Budget Planner Printable. I will also post a detailed blog post on that topic soon. So look out for that!
I wish you a beautiful remainder of 2019 and hope to see you on the blog again soon. I have a really good feeling for 2019!
