SBC: goals + accomplishments.

 

Let’s get this September Blogging Challenge started, shall we? Starting with…

 

1) September goals.

Stick to this challenge.
I’m sure I’ll end up compiling a lot of the posts (like this one), but I’m determined to complete all 30!

Speakable.
September is going to be a planning month as I have some new ideas that I’d love to implement over the rest of the year. Specifically there’s a campaign I’m planning on for October, which I couldn’t be more excited about.

Read more.
I have 3 books that I’m on right now that I’m sort of lollygagging through, so I want to finish those and move on to some new books. Any recommendations?

Make another video.
…or two. What do you guys want to see?

Plan a getaway.
I haven’t thought much about this, but I’d love to have a getaway to look forward to, even if it’s a small one.

Decorate apartment.
Rachel and I have put this off because life has just been crazy since we moved into our new apartment, but we’re ready to make it all cute and cozy for fall!

Work smarter.
I have a lot of opportunities in front of me, but I need to do a better job taking full advantage of them. That might mean getting rid of some things I’m working on…? I think I just need to sit down and write out which opportunities have the greatest ROI and the steps I need to take to actually get there.

 

2) Something(s) I’m proud of accomplishing recently.

Over the past year I feel like I’ve grown as a person more than I ever have. I know that’s a pretty broad statement, so more specifically I’ve:

become more self aware/secure in my identity
stopped caring so much what other people think
gotten stubborn (in a good way) about what I want and deserve in life
learned how to hear God more clearly and trust my intuition
learned how to let things go that aren’t right for me

The other thing I’m proud of is where I am financially. There is definitely room for improvement in that department (HELLO cost of living in NYC), but I’m proud of how well I manage my money. Sometimes I still can’t believe that I not only live in New York but also have a full and FUN life here, while also doing what I love for a living.

Side note – that 100% would not be possible without strict budgeting. I follow Dave Ramsey’s advice/tools for that!

Your turn! Goals for September? Something you’re proud of accomplishing recently?

5 comments to SBC: goals + accomplishments.

  • Yay, more videos! I like “day in the life” vids. :)
    I’m proud of accomplishing my recent move to NYC, and finding a place to live in under two weeks.

  • Recently, I’m proud of learning not to regret every mistake I’ve made. I’ve actually gained a lot from them, whether they be lessons or good experiences. After all, we learn by doing, and we rarely do something right the first time. Plus, making mistakes in the beginning makes me even more appreciative of what I end up accomplishing.

    My biggest goal for September is to actually use my gym membership again. Another is to visit my friend who just moved to NYC. I jump at every opportunity to make it down there, so this one won’t be hard to accomplish.

    Oh, and I also need to decorate my apartment. We’ve been there for two years now…whoops!

  • Totally feel you about the cost of living in NYC. I just moved here for school and I’m seriously overwhelmed with the stress of my (laughable) financial situation.

    I want to do the September blogging challenge. It looks so fun!

    Congrats on all you are accomplishing =).

  • LOVE – your goals seem amazing for the month and definitely attainable! It’s day 9 of September, and I still haven’t gotten a post up! But I’m going to commit to some of the more “simple” ones! =) I love the idea of a blogging challenge.
