In my recent 2014 year in review post I mentioned that I would not be making any resolutions but that I would be setting some goals.
Following are a few actionable/measurable goals that I am setting for myself. I will review them monthly on the blog.
Note: I am vacationing for the next 4 weeks and as a result many of my goals will not be met in January.
Workout/Exercise a minimum of 6 times per week. (Monday to Sunday)
Cardiovascular exercise of 30 minutes or more, weight training, or playing sports will count as a “session” for this purpose.
Exercise is good for the body and mind. I am happy productive person when I exercise regularly.
Maintain a balanced “healthy” diet 5 days a week.
I won’t go into details on what I consider to be a healthy diet as it’s probably not of interest to most readers. Email me if you care ☺
I feel better when I am eating well. I also feel happy when I am lean. I often struggle with food and binge eat. I want to become more consistent with my diet.
Demonstrate more patience on a daily basis
This one is tougher to measure as I don’t really have a benchmark. I am going to allow my wife to be the judge of how well I am doing. I will quote her monthly; this should be good for laugh.
I have a short fuse and am impatient with myself and my loved ones. It’s not a flattering behavior. I need to develop more patience.
Blog a minimum of 2 times per week on LyndonReid.com
See above, this one is straight forward.
I have already set this goal. I am enjoying blogging. I want to continue to blog and get deeper into the online businesses I am launching to help others experience the benefits of running an online business.
Increase annual revenue to $100,000 CAD. With a target net income of about 80,000 CAD
Monthly income statements will be provided on the blog as we work towards this goal.
Earning money is fun. I believe $100,000 is reasonable goal. I am currently doing roughly $2,000 a month, which would put me at $24,000/year, but I am just getting stated.
Incorporate my online businesses.
Successful incorporation and tax filing.
Preferential tax treatment.
Real Estate Investing
Determine next move for our business.
Document a plan, even if the plan is simply to hold existing assets.
I can’t decide whether I want to take on investors and purchase larger properties, purchase multifamily properties, purchase vacation properties or diversify outside of Winnipeg, purchase single family homes/condos, attempt to take over a small condo, or just chillout and hold existing assets. I need to set some direction for myself so that I do not continue to spin my wheels.
Review Goals Often
Review goals monthly and adjust as necessary.
Documented review of goals every month.
It’s easy to lose focus. Regular measurement will help to maintain focus. Goals may need to change or be adjusted. Regular reviews will ensure that I am working towards goals that continue to make sense.
That is a fair list of goals. I’ll leave it at that for now and review monthly. Did you set any goals for 2015? What about resolutions?
