As a turbulent year comes to an end, a blank slate is laid out before us. I am feeling optimistic about 2017 and looking forward to seeing what the future has in store for me. To try and keep myself organized I have compiled ten goals I wish to achieve in both my personal and professional life.
1. Get a full time job in my field
For those of you who don’t know I just graduated from University with a BA in English Literature. I also have a post-graduate certificate in Social Media Marketing. I’m currently working freelance but I want to have a full time job with an established company by the end of the year.
2. Obtain my Hootsuite Certification
This something I’ve been meaning to do months now but have never gotten around to finishing. I’ve done my studying, I just need to take the actual test.
3. Reach 500 followers on Bloglovin
4. Reach 400 followers on Instagram
5. Post on my blog at least once a week
6. Post on Instagram at least twice a week
7. Workout two-three times a week
Pretty self explanatory. I have a gym in the building I live in now and my super-athlete sister says I have chicken legs, lol. Things need to change.
8. Write in my journal every night
Again, pretty self explanatory. Writing in my journal at night helps me clear my mind before bed. My thoughts are on paper instead of swirling around my brain keeping me awake and worrying.
9. Read more books
After four years studying English Literature at university I’m excited to once again me able to read books of my choosing rather than what is dictated by a curriculum.
10. Go cruelty-free with my beauty products
After doing research on product development and testing in the beauty industry I’ve decided I will no longer buy products from brands that test on animals. I’ve cleaned out my makeup collection and I’m currently working on a blog post detailing my favourite cruelty-free brands. If you have any suggestions please let me know in the comments!
Well there you have it. The ten goals I will
try to achieve in the next twelve months. What goals have you set for yourself this year? Or are you more of a New Years Resolutions type person? Either way let me know in the comments section below.
