Smile #102 – Lifestyle Challenges (2nd Edition)


For 2016, my goal can be summarized with the picture below.


Jk.  Although that post cannot be more true, I did have a couple real resolutions for 2016.

Resolutions for 2016:

Read 26 books.  I realized from last year that 50 books is a bit too overreaching.  So I scaled back to 2 books a month.  I already have a list of titles, we are off to a great start!

Sticking to the budget.  My bank account has got to stop going into recession.

Keep blogging.  100 smiles for 2016.  I really enjoyed jogging down small reasons to smile last year.  Let’s do it again!

Exercise.  Work out 2-3x a week.  Reach 10,000 steps at least 5 days out of a week.  Take advantage of this gym pass.

Travel – 25 before 25.  I love seeing the world and new places.  I set the goal of 25 before 25.  Got less than 10 months to reach this goal!  Aside from the big world, I quite enjoyed finding hidden places nearby my town.  Continue to discover local spots for day or weekend adventuring.  🙂

Toastmasters.  I would like to complete my Competent Communicator workbook by the end of 2016.  1 speech down, 9 more to go!

Cooking.  Gonna try this goal again and hope for better results this year.  One new recipe each month with Chef Bubble.  Plus figure out my one signature dish.

Skills Building.  Two areas I would like to focus on:  Supply Chain and Project Management.  Developed a further understanding on both subjects will certainly help with my professional work.

Drink 3 glass of water.  I am aware that water is essential to life, but I dislike the taste of water.

Watch a documentary monthly.  Netflix is great for those binge watching marathons, but for once a month, let’s turn that off for a documentary and learn about a new topic instead.

These are all the 10 main goals that I would like to focus on in 2016.  I feel ready to conquer these challenges!

What are your goals for 2016?
