Happy New Year...Goals Recap and 2017 Goals...


Happy New Year!  I wish everyone peace and prosperity and much, much happiness in the coming year.

Last year's goals were pretty simple.

2016 GOALS
Write it down -- continue with weekly listing goals and to-dos...this is the best way of keeping me on track and making progress  
     <SUCCESS!>

Finances -- focus on frugality, weekly blog post for accountability  
      <SUCCESS!>

Home -- reacquaint myself with Flylady routines and continue reducing possessions
     <UNMITIGATED FAILURE>

Quilting -- complete 6 quilts    As far as completing (meaning done and ready to use) it was an unmitigated failure, but I did get some tops completed, so I'm counting it as a...
     <LIMITED SUCCESS>

Water -- drink 42 ounces of water daily (over and above other beverages consumed)
     <SOMEWHAT SUCCESSFUL --MORE WATER, BUT NOT CONSISTENT>

52 Letters in 52 Weeks  <LIMITED SUCCESS - 36 OUT OF 52 DONE>

I did like keeping my goals simple and few, so I will only adjust slightly for 2017.


2017 GOALS
Write it down -- continue with weekly listing goals and to-dos...this is the best way of keeping me on track and making progress  

Finances -- focus on frugality, weekly blog post for accountability (It did keep me thinking about it when I knew I had to blog weekly, so I guess I will keep it up.)

Home -- Swiffer one room daily (My sole focus this year.  I figure the rest will fall in place.)

Reduce possessions -- Sell ten items

Quilting -- complete ten quilts/quilted projects  (because, you know, if you fail at six, try ten next time)

Water -- drink 36 ounces of water daily (over and above other beverages consumed)

  1. A Happy New Year from across the pond. I am always in awe of people who manage to set goals and actually meet at least some of them. Well done Kathleen. All the best for 2017 and I look forward to your blog posts and completed quilts!

    1. Thank you, Catherine! It didn't feel like I made much headway on my list, but still, some progress is better than none. I miss your blog! Are you settled in a new house? Hope you have a wonderful year!

  3. But aren't four gorgeous quilt tops better than six OK ones? Your goals always are impressive. Keep up the good work. Mine are simple this year:
    1. Reduce my belongings.
    2. Repurpose things I love so I use them even more.
    3. Renew my creative side by coloring, crocheting, or card making.
    4. Move daily--walk, swim, stretch, or dance

  4. Quilt tops are not nearly as WARM as finished quilts. But thanks for the affirmation. :)

    Your goals are good ones. Have you written them down where you can see them?
