I recently undertook a review and update of my 2019/20 Goals Review and Update  for what I wanted to achieve in 2021. I reduced my original goals down from 39 to 26. However, I have now reduced down to just 12 goals and added an additional one or two goals in the areas I want to focus on in 2021. This is due to me simply having too many goals each year and I either don’t start or don’t finish some. My aim in 2021 is to achieve all 12 goals, that’s one a month, although most will take a consistent approach over the year ahead. Some of these 12 goals also have sub-goals.

I have not completely dismissed my original 39 goals, they have just been parked for now whilst I focus on making the changes that will (hopefully) have the biggest impact on my life and where I want to be.

I am now more optimistic that I can achieve my 12 goals for 2021.  All I have to do now is schedule them in with realistic timescales, particularly as some of them require me to save money to achieve them, because of this, I will also be budgeting for these throughout the year.

So here are my 12 limited goals

My 2021 Goals are much simpler and there are far less of them than in previous years, I am hoping I will achieve them all in 2021.  I really don’t know where my motivation has come from this year (since August), particularly since starting inner child work.  

Has therapy has turned things around for me?  I know a lot of people think therapy is a waste of time, I agree to a point, just talking about your issues is not enough.  But my therapy is different, my therapy really educates me in psychology.  I have learned so much, I get homework to do, it is proactive because I often do much more than the homework I receive.  I am curious and fascinated and am making associations why people behave the way they do.

Looking back now, I have wasted so many years not working towards the things I want.  In many areas not knowing what I want.  It seems the more I do, the more I want to do.  I feel I am only now starting to make progress towards my life goals.  The strangest thing is, even if I have days when I feel low, I continue to work on my goals.  My mood may cause me to do a bit less but my drive is always there.  Whereas in the past, my mood has dictated my actions or lack of, I could waste a whole day because of it.  

Now each day some progress is made, I just find this very strange, am I healing? or am I just so driven to turn my life around? who knows!  Knowing that even the tiniest action is progress towards my goals.  Each time I tick off a goal oriented task, it fuels my motivation further.

I do a monthly reflection in my planner and each month I list 10 things I have achieved in the previous month, I am at the point where I can easily list 12-15 achievements, I used to struggle to write 5.
