5 Types of Goals Worth Setting in 2020

Happy New Year Everyone!

It's that time of the year where resolutions, goals and theme words ooze out of every media platform. As a compulsive list-maker and goal-setter, I have no complaints about this trend. I'm an ardent believer in the setting of goals, not just every New Year but as a tool to be used every time my life needs to be redirected.

On to the actual content of this post, here are 5 types of goals (with examples) that I will be setting this year to define the life I want to live in 2020 and beyond.

Relationship Goals

  • Concrete actions to build new relationships
  • Concrete actions to sustain and nurture old relationships e.g weekend getaways with loved ones, reach out more via text, phone call or emails
  • Goals to strengthen connection with kids, spouse, siblings etc

Family Life Goals

  • Food goals centered around having a healthier diet that addresses any health issues we're trying to address
  • Goals regarding family habits like TV time, vacations, parenting etc
  • Home maintenance goals like I need to pay for a cleaner twice a month!!!

Financial Goals

These can be either saving or spending goals e.g
  • Save down payment for a new home, renovation or random appliance
  • Keep track of budget and spending
  • Reduce eating out budget to $xxx per month
  • Stick to a budget 
  • Career and personal development objectives

Recreational Goals

Goals centered around the things I do/wish to do for relaxation and fun
  • Read xx number of books
  • Get a massage once a month
  • Run a number of 5K races
  • Workout for 20 minutes 3 times a week

Spiritual Goals

My spirit and relationship with God needs to be nurtured just as much as the earthly/physical relationships. Some goals I've set in the past to address that are:
  • Commit to daily devotional time
  • Read some or all of the bible within a certain timefrace
  • Dedicate time to volunteer work
  • Commit of a spiritual retreat, conference, group fast or something new that I've never tried before as a Christian

Now for full disclosure, the above is not a listing of all my goals and resolutions for 2020. That would be way too much and I'd probably fall off the wagon by March. 

In practice, I like to chose the 1-4 goals that are most important to me and document them somewhere and then work very hard to meet said goals. Sometimes I win and sometimes I lose. Regardless of outcome, I'm just happy that I tried. 

Hope we all have a blessed and fulfilling 2020.
