My Goals for 2008

One problem I’ve had in the past is not clearly defining goals. Or some of my clearly defined goals are too easy for me to reach with my ability to automate things. For 2008, I have come up with 3 goals that will be a stretch for me.

1. Earn at least $2,000 from my online endeavors. This is mostly going to be from this blog (to date, I haven’t earned anything, but that’s partially due to laziness on my part since I was offered one advertising deal that I never closed) and selling stuff on eBay and Craigslist.
2. Get to $25,000 in my “early retirement” account. Right now I have just a bit under $10,000. I plan to discuss this in further detail in the future.
3. Run the Nike’s Women’s Half Marathon.

All three of these goals will challenge me. #3 will be especially difficult for me since I’m not an athletic person by nature. When work gets really busy, exercise is the first thing to get cut out of my schedule.

I plan on creating some sort of pictorial guidance on this blog showing my progress towards these goals, so please stay tuned for more.

This year I decided to only focus on a few goals. I didn't have too many last year (I think it was 5), but it was difficult for me to have goals in so many different areas (financial, personal, exercise, spiritual), so this year I'm trying to keep it simple.

Happy New Year! Good luck in your goals in 2008. I'm going to set my 2008 goal soon but not yet. :)
