32 Goals For The Next Year

Home / Self Improvement / Goal Planning / 32 Goals For The Next Year
It's hard to believe that in just a few days, I'll be 32. Instead of worrying about getting older, I'm finding new reasons to celebrate my birthday by challenging myself to complete 32 goals over the next year. Read more at blissfullemon.com/32-goals-for-the-next-year.

What if I used my birthday as a reason to challenge myself to complete a few goals? Well, maybe more than a few. 32 goals to be exact. I know it sounds like a lot, but if I can put my heart and mind at ease, why not try? After all, you all know I love a good challenge.

I will be revisiting this post throughout the next year. As soon as I complete a goal, I’ll hop on (as quickly as I can) and mark it off. And if I write a post about it, I’ll leave the link so it’s easy to find.

My 32 Goals For The Next Year

  1. Go to the doctor at least once every 3 months.
  2. Find a way to visit my mom.
  3. Read (or listen to) 30 books in the next year.
  4. Come up with a plan to be more active even on my busy days (like walking at my computer, standing while I work, etc.). Then follow through!
  5. Go on a walk at least once a week and at least one long hike by the end of this year.
  6. Lose at least 25% of my body weight in the next 6 months.
  7. Challenge myself to start doing things that make me uncomfortable, like being on camera and/or talking to more people.
  8. Try out 52 different face masks, one each week for the next year.
  9. Make a bucket list with 100+ places to go, things to experience, etc. Then mark at least one thing off.
  10. Finish the Game Development course I started during Summer of Code 2019.
  11. Clean out and organize the back room in my house so I can finally start storing things on the shelves in there.
  12. Get rid of at least half the boxes and totes in the spare bedroom.
  13. Organize and set the office back up the way we want it.
  14. Put up the Christmas tree and decorate it.
  15. Have a date night (or double-date night) with Andrew once a month. It has to be more than just going out to eat! We have to also go to a movie or somewhere else.
  16. Complete Inktober, from start to finish (or a variation of it if I find prompts I like more!).
  17. Start hosting the ‘Create 30’ challenge again in all the months with 30 days, starting in November. (That’s November, April, June, and next September).
  18. Complete at least 40 Skillshare classes over the next year, including doing all the projects and sharing my work.
  19. Create some sort of a “limited spending” challenge and follow through at least twice over the next 6 months. I have a few ideas, but the plan is to limit spending and save money. If I fail to follow through, I have to start back over.
  20. Complete a monthly personal review to see where I’m at, what new goals I might want to achieve later, how I’m doing physically, mentally, etc., and what I can do to make the next month even better.

My last 12 goals will be based on the ‘100 Life Challenges‘ book that I tried (and failed) to start going through last year.

  1. Take a photo of something that makes you happy. (#36)
  2. Learn a new word. (#51)
  3. Write down a quote or something powerful you heard each day. (#39)
  4. Write yourself a note for the next day. (#41)
  5. Set a bedtime and stick to it. (#79)
  6. Stop drinking any caffeine after noon. (#90)
  7. Remove added sugar from your diet for 30 days. (#89)
  8. Walk 10,000 steps. (#62)
  9. Keep a list of what you accomplished each day. (#66)
  10. Go a month without makeup. Wear makeup every day for a month. (#61)
  11. Meditate for 5-10 minutes a day. (#2)
  12. Write a letter to someone every day. (#7)
