My Annual Goals: 2014

My Annual Goals: 2014

So after a gap of 6 months, and a big debate about the importance of goals versus growth, I set a bunch of goals for myself this year.

My approach toward goal-setting was different this year. You might have heard of S.M.A.R.T. goals… well, here are what I call, G.O.A.L.S. goals :).

I’ve set goals that are:

  • Growth-oriented: They will help me grow in different areas of my life.
  • Ordered: I’ve noted down my main priorities and set goals corresponding to each.
  • Achievable: Seriously! After not reaching many of my previous goals, I’ve made sure these are attainable.
  • Life-friendly: Because life happens… you know?!
  • Simple: I’ve tried not to over-complicate my goals, because I tend to do that sometimes a lot.

Not that anyone is interested in reading about it… but I’m sharing my goals here as an extra level of accountability.


1. Complete 4 Bible studies with Good Morning Girls.
2. Read through the books of Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges & Ruth.


3. Read at least 12 full-length, non-fiction books – ideally one each month.
4. Complete the Titus 2 University eCourse.


5. Walk a 3 Km stretch by the end of the year.


6. Go out on 4 dates with my husband.


7. Teach the kids 12 verses – one each month.
8. Teach the kids 12 family ways – one each month.

Home Management:

9. Follow the Confident Mom home management planner.


10. Write 120 blog posts this year.

That’s it! Just 10 goals… and I’ve broken them into bite-sized pieces for each month. I’ll {hopefully} post an update on my goals at the end of each quarter this year.

Have you set any goals for the new year?
What strategy did you follow?
