January Goals 2018

Home / Uncategorized / January Goals 2018

I’ll be doing this monthly to track my current progress and help myself stay on top of my monthly habits.

The monthly updates will consist of different life and blog goals that I set myself for the month.




Cook most of my meals. Failed.

My little sister came into town and I had another friend leave the Bay Area. Needless to say, I spent a bit too much money this month on dining out. While I definitely love eating out with friends, this is something I have to crack down on this month. Ah, well. I did buy more Tupperware so I can cook and save more meals at a time though! Woo! 🙂

Work out three times a week. Failed.

I used to workout 4-6x times a week, but with being greater focus on my career and growing this blog, I was working out about 2-3x a week this month. This might honestly be the magic number and I could possibly shift my focus to getting more out of these 2-3 workouts.




Build out the Foundation of my blog. Check!

From the beginning of this month, I learned as much as I possibly could after hours and built out the initial layout of my blog, and learned about the backend operations of WordPress. Very much still a beginner, but I’m proud of how much I got out of the last month.

Start a consistent writing schedule. Check!

I’ll be doing my best to write 2 posts a week minimum and 4 posts a week maximum. I devote much of my off-work hours to building this out, and as much as I enjoy it, I do recognize that I have to avoid burnout for the long-run. Excited to be sharing all of my thoughts and financial learnings publicly now though!

Create a Business Pinterest for this site. Yes!

I made an account and have been learning the beginning ropes. Here is my account! Give me a follow and send me a message! 🙂   https://www.pinterest.com/financialgrains/boards/


Some Initial Goals for February

  • Write 8-12 posts for the month, averaging about 2-4 posts per week.
  • Share some of my blog posts with my Quora account
  • Get to 50 Pinterest followers
  • Keep enjoying the process and have a learner’s mentality.
  • Find more great beer and coffee.
