Did I reach my Goals for 2018?
I set goals that began on January 1st. I was excited to attack these goals. Now, 365 days later, I look back at the success and lessons I learned. I lead a value-driven life; I make goals for each of these values, then I make habits to reach these goals. Down below you will see the goals I made for each of my values (Values are in parenthesis) .
What is the biggest lesson I learned from reviewing my goals?
Social accountability is the number one determining factor of success. I can look back at 2018 and realize that the goals that I brought others along with were much more winsome:
Blogging 365 time in 365 days (Branding): ✓
Reading through the bible in a year (Faith): ✓
Call family member every week (Family: ✓
Get in nature weekly (Adventure): ✓
Have three intentional conversations (Friends): ✓
However, those that were not held accountable to another human being was far less likely to come true:
Read 10 pages a night (Growth): X
Volunteering monthly (Generosity): X
Wake up when alarm goes off (Purpose): X
Have only $5,000 in student loans (Finance): X
Be 160 pounds of largely lean muscle (Health): X
According to my own success rates, I will achieve a goal 100% of the time with people and 0% of the time without! Of course, this will not always happen, but this shows me that I need accountability for ALL of my goals this year. By the way, it is okay to not reach a goal: the point is to shoot for the stars and land on the clouds. So, learn from me:
