Goals Update-January 2016

Holy cow! I can’t believe 2016 is here already!

In my previous post, Goal Setting and Mind Mapping, I set 11 goals for myself. Projects that I’ve either been meaning to work on or want to accomplish for my side businesses and here is how December went and what I have in store for myself in January.


December’s Monthly Target List:

Journal Prompts Book: work on consolidating all prompts into an Excel spreadsheet

Completed 12-28-2015

Bobbin Lace Workbook: go through current print out and make notes

Completed 12-30-2015

Recipe Book: start listing recipes or find list

Ongoing process, but found started list

Genealogy Workbook: consolidate all notes

Still looking for all my notes

Cooking thru the Book: research equipment and software needed

Consulting more knowledgeable people

January Target List:


Journal Prompts Book:

  • Delete duplicates
  • Create Chicago citations
  • Assign End Note characters

Bobbin Lace Workbook:

  • Work through the instructions

Recipe Book:

  • Write out 5 recipes

Genealogy Workbook:

  • Work out what needs to be written

eBay Shop:

  • Continue write ups and pictures
  • Type and upload what you have


  • List sweater and other specialty items


  • Do more seller research

Craft Shows:

  • Knit Little Royals baby blanket

YouTube Channel:

  • Film 5 videos in January


  • Brainstorm more post ideas

Cooking thru the Book:

  • Make a list of needed equipment and software with the approximate cost

This is what I’ll be up to in the first month of the New Year. December’s list wasn’t so bad, especially when you consider I was out of town for a week and couldn’t bring much with me to work on. So, if I can get 8-9 targets met in December and was making some progress on the remaining ones, January should be just as productive.
