At the beginning of the year, I decided to settle on some goals. Steps I would take to make my life better or, things I wanted to do more of. I suppose there’s no point in having goals if you’re not working towards them. And the only way to make sure that you’re doing something right is to do a progress check.

For one thing, I decided to write out my goals in my personal planner (my EDC Filofax) and my journal (my Hobonichi Techo), so I could refer back to them often and know what I wanted to be doing this year.

I had hoped to review my progress on a weekly basis or at least monthly basis but I guess I’m horrible at maintaining a schedule with things like these. So I thought I’d do it today. There’s no time like the present, right?

So how have I done so far..

  1. I have started studying for the third level of my professional exam, albeit very slowly.
  2. I have started to read more
  3. I have started to focus more at work and limit my distractions
  4. I have been journaling everyday (bonus: I’ve also been writing one line a day about what I am thankful for)

So far, I have been good with these goals but they are only 4 out of my target of 10. But since it’s not zero out of 10, I will give myself a small pat on the back and encouragement to reach the ten.
