Every semester that I have been in college I have taken the time to sit down and create 15 goals for that semester. I chose the number 15 because there are 15 weeks in the semester system at my school.. so it just seemed right!
At the end of each semester I reflect on the goals that I set and share with you which ones I reached, which ones I got close to, and which ones I completely let slip away. Honestly, before doing this I was never into setting goals. I figured, I have a dream in my head of how I want to feel (happy and proud of my hard work) and that’s all I need. However, since practicing writing down and sharing these goals my productivity has skyrocketed and I’m able to see real measurable growth in myself!
If you have never set goals, take some time to sit down, read my guide on how to set goals to increase your productivity, and write out one or two things you want to complete this semester or even this month. Comment them below! I’d love to hear what your goals are and how you worked to reach them.
Last, but not least, ready to see what I have in store for this semester? Here are my goals!
1. Go to the gym at least once a week
2. Talk to my boyfriend on the phone or video call once a day
3. Meal prep on Sundays
4. Don’t buy any new clothes
5. Habit tracking each month
6. Get a killer internship
7. Do laundry each Sunday
8. Clean room each Sunday
9. Make bed each morning
10. Post on Dani Dearest once a week
11. Try at least 5 new recipes
12. Use Plan consistently
13. Keep my plants alive
14. Spend only $40 a week on groceries & track how much I spend to be able to create a budget in the future – Bonus: Use coupons!
