Review of 2010 Goals I set myself

I thought I’d review the goals I set for 2010 before I write my ones for 2011.

First off Health:

Health
1. To get my diabetes under better control by testing my blood sugars at least twice a day.
2. To put on weight. (I know most people want to loose it, but I am 10 stone which is less than I weighed at 15 years old when I was 12 stone)

My blood sugars are under better control since I learn’t to cook during my brief excursion to Benidorm (see Welcome to Benidorm and Back Home). I’m still working on testing my blood sugars twice a day. I’ve also put on a bit of weight. I still need to test my sugars twice a day.

  • Goal 1. partially completed.
  • Goal 2. fully completed.

Next Education:

Education
3. To complete a further two modules towards my degree.

I completed one module earlier on in the year (see Promoting and Influencing Health module results) and have just completed another module on Leadership. In the new year I need to complete my Dissertation module and complete a Change for Children module.

  • Goal 3. completed!

Creativity:

Creativity
4. To write three short stories.
5. To enter these short stories in Writing Competitions.
6. To read at least fourteen books.
7. To update/tweak/add & remove sections of my website. (as the rest of the site as been poorly maintained since the new site design)

I haven’t managed to do any creative writing this year. Although I have read a total of 14 Books (see Book List 2010). I just need to update it and add The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank, which I finished reading the other day – review coming soon, promise.

I also have updated the website, although it’s still a work in progress.

  • Goal 4. and 5. not completed.
  • Goal 6. and 7. completed.

Paganism & Spirituality:

Paganism & Spirituality
8. To host two psychic parties.
9. To buy Astral Projection for Beginners, read it and practice the exercises for more controlled astral projection.
10. Continue to work on invokation of Apollo.
11. Continue to follow Pagan Festivals.

I didn’t manage to host any psychic parties this year. I did buy Astral Travel for Beginners by Richard Webster but didn’t like his writing style and have not finished reading it. I have just ordered Astral Projection for Beginners by Edain McCoy as I like Edain’s writing style.

I have continued to follow Pagan Festivals but haven’t continue to work on invokation of Apollo.

  • Goal 8., 9. and 10. not completed.
  • Goal 11. completed.

Financial

Financial
12. Save regularly.
13. Pay off an Overdraft.
14. Live more frugally.

I haven’t managed to save regularly, pay off my overdraft or live more frugally. Indeed moving to and from Benidorm has increased my debt. However I have taken in a house mate to help pay off my debts quicker and am making good progress.

  • Goal 12., 13. and 14. not completed.

And Finally, Travel

Travel
15. Book a holiday to MyKonos and save for it.

Didn’t quite get to MyKonos, but did get to Benidorm.

  • Goal 15. not completed.

Although more goals were not completed than completed this year; I feel as though I have learned more this year than in the last two. My excursion to Benidrom taught me so much more than I realised at the time. Life sometimes gives opportunities for “life experience” learning. This life experience learning can’t be put on a goals list; as life decides when to offer these opportunities to you.

Will blog soon with my Goals for 2011 post!

A review of the 2009 Goals I set Myself

A year ago I wrote myself a list of goals for the year (see Goals for 2009). Some I’ve completed, even exceeded were as some haven’t been met. So let’s have a look shall we?

Health – To Improve my blood sugar control, eat better & be generally healthy.

Well I had a prolonged period of ill health June / July time. I had to see a consultant it was that bad. So I didn’t achieve the “to be generally healthy” goal in 2009.

Financial – To pay off debts (one from last year I didn’t actually manage to do).

Nah not managed to do this either. Probably because I bought an apartment (see The Move

Home – To put together a dream home book and start working towards it.

Actually superseded this one by buying my apartment.

Adventures – To go to Italy for two weeks and explore the culture, places and people that inhabit this land.

Didn’t manage this one. David and I had planned to do this but we couldn’t agree on where in Italy to go. We ultimately decided not to go.

Creative – To do some more candle making (see A Visit to Simon’s) and some creative writing.

Didn’t manage to as much creative stuff as I would of liked, but I did do some.

Be There – To continue to be there for family & friends who I am very lucky to have

Hopefully I achieved this one, guess only they could Judge?

A Magickal Grand Plan
I also completed a A Magickal Grand Plan. So how does this fit in to my yearly goal setting? We the Magickal Grand Plan is like a overall plan of what I want to achieve and the yearly goal setting helps me to get there.

Coming soon, my goals for 2010. :)
