This thinking of course brought me to my "13 goals for 2013". The last time I actively looked at these and reviewed my progress was probably in February. Why is that? I asked myself. It turns out to be quite simple, and I won't try to sugar coat it in any way... The simple, ugly truth is...
I DON'T CARE ABOUT ANY OF THOSE GOALS I MADE.
Not one bit... Those goals I wrote don't match what I truly want or care about right now, and they don't even fully align with what I want in the future (short or long term). Yes they are helpful positive goals; but that's all they have going for them. To be honest, they are just a list of things that I would like to do or wouldn't mind doing that I came up with during the high of the new year. We are almost halfway through now and I can openly admit I don't care or basically never cared about them.
So that now means I am in a position where I need to create new goals; goals I truly care about and that matter to me. It is no longer 13 goals. it has been simplified and brought down to 3.
- Grow my net worth yearly(I guess I did care about one of the goals)
- Travel once every year starting from now (first trip 2014)
- Move out of my mom's house and live on my own.
Those are the 3 goals. With those, I can break them down into mini-goals and milestones and I am more likely to achieve them as those three goals reflect actively what I want, they also align more closely with the seven year plan I talked about back in March (I should have realized then that I didn't care about my 2013 goals, took me 2 months). I'm going to take them and create some mini-goals to aim for during the reminder of 2013. Stay tuned... I'll keep you posted.
