My 18 goals in 2018

Hello my lovelies. How's your new year so far? I have been thinking about yearly goals a lot this year.  I usually did not do yearly goals because I will have trouble remembering them throughout the year. 

This year I decided to make a few achievable goals in 2018 which I can visit monthly and see how far I have accomplished them. I intend to live this year intentionally and to simplify my life. I decided to do My 18 goals in 2018 tag (I think it's a tag because I kept seeing them everywhere in youtube). It will be fun to do along a one year project with everybody.

  1. Do abs workout at least 3 times a week - I have been neglecting my abs workout lately. So this year I intend to do abs workout at least 3 times a week. 
  2. Drink at least 3 liter of water daily- I have been very callous with my water intake lately. So this year I want to do this again and make it a habit again this year.
  3. Be more grateful and humble - I want to be more humble and grateful this year. I plan to keep a gratitude journal using my DayOne app and list three things I am grateful for daily. Say thank you alot especially to someone who I think don't deserve it. Just say thank you.
  4. Write in my journal daily - I know that this year is going to be a challenging year for me. I am going to have a lot of emotional baggage to sort through and a lot of things are going to be on my mind. So writing a daily journal can be very helpful to keep a clear head and a peace of mind.
  5. Read 20 books this year - I just sign up reading challenge on goodnotes for 20 books. I want to read more this year and having a set of number to achieve is going to be fun for me. 
  6. Learn to use Affinity Photo  - I have bought Affinity photo last year but I was just barely scratch the surface. So this year I am really going to learn how to use this app especially on my ipad.
  7. Travel at least two times - I have been meaning to travel the world for the longest time. I want to make the time to see other places in the world before I die like Eiffel Tower in Paris,  Gondola Ride in Venice, Colosseum in Rome, Northern Lights (Aurora) in Iceland and many more. Hopefully this I get to visit some of them.
  8. Stick to a system or tool for a year - I love technology and I love apps. I can easily get seduce into trying new apps all the time. This year I wanted to use only the app that I have, choose only one app for a particular task and delete others. For example - use only todoist for all my to dos (actionable task), Evernote for my digital filing system - Google calendar as my main calendar, Trello as my project management overview, Project Life app as my scrapbook, Goodnotes as my note taking app-digital planner and art journal, Day One as my journal, Color Story as my photo editing app. It is going to be challenge for me but I am going to try
  9. Embrace the power of ONE - In this age of information technology where everything that you want is at your finger tips. Information overload can really cripple me. Make your choice and stood by it. One is a very powerful number. Be comfortable with myself because there's no one in the world like me. I have to stop comparing myself to other people. No one in the world have my experience and no one in the world have my emotions. I am ONE - celebrate that. 
  10. Spend less money on things/stuffs - I have been very bad when it comes to accumulating stuffs. I often bought things that I don't need. This year I am going to make it my goal to spend less money on things/stuffs. I am going to try and practice the 30 days rule. If I find things that I want to buy I have to put it in To Buy Lists (use todoist) and revisit them in 30 days. If I still want them after 30 days than maybe I will consider buying it. 
  11. Go on "Apple Diet" - I have been spending way too much money on Apple product last year. I am going to make it my mission to stop myself from buying any Apple product this year. No matter how amazing and beautiful the product is I am not going to buy it. (unless they come out with new Apple Pencil hehehe ...) . I need to spend more time enjoying my product because Apple product last longer and I should really used them to it's full potential. I even told my kids about this goal and asked them to remind me about this goal when ever I mention to them that I want that new iphone or that new ipad or that new macbook.
  12. Finish my online courses - I have taken a few online courses last year and a few this year that I still need to go through. 
  13. Simplify my life - Simplify is my One Little Word for 2018. This year I am going to embark on a project to simplify my life especially with my spaces and environment. My January is going to focus on things/stuffs in my home. I need to slowly letting go of all the stuffs that longer serve me physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally.
  14. Adopt a digital Life Style - I want to adopt a digital lifestyle this year. Mostly I will convert all the papers document that I received into digital and keep them in my Evernote, convert all my dvd movies into digital media, only buy ebooks or audiobooks (no physical book this year) and so on.
  15. Spend more time at home - especially during weekend. I used to love going to malls during weekend just to make myself busy and forget about my loneliness and problems. This year I am going to make a conscious effort to stay at home more often during the weekend and enjoy my space and my home more. I can be happy at home and feel content with myself.
  16. Explore Simplify (OLW2018) - I want to be curious with my word and embrace the beauty of becoming. I am not sure how I am going to do that but I am sure that by the end of the year I will be a different person.
  17. Involve actively with my daughter studies - My daughter will be taking SPM exam in 2019. I want her to be prepare from day one. Study is fun and I am going to make it my mission to show her how fun it is. I am already checking out and a few online tuisyen available.  
  18. Be more active - My job is basically spend time in front of a computer. I want to be more active this year. Walk more and hit at least 10,000 steps every single day including weekend. Exercise for at least 30 minutes for 6 days a week and not step on the scale for three months. I need to change my goal from losing weight to be more healthy.
This is definitely a really long lists and long goals. I think it's achievable and not too big for me. I might do half of the year check in blog post just to see how I am doing. Wish me luck!
