Goal Recap for 2018

When I was praying about the goals I should set for 2018 at the end of 2017 I felt God prompting me not to make many year-long goals because it was going to be a rather crazy year. I am so thankful for that. I only set seven Year-Long goals and even though I didn’t accomplish all of the goals, it was pretty much perfect.

Year-Long Goals 

1. Write Weekly and Monthly Goals – YES 
2. Fifteen Days of Paleo each month – NO
3. Review All the Books I Read – YES 
4. Finish Echoes and When Life Hands You Lymes – NO
5. Query One – Technically YES, but not exactly how I was meaning 
6. Three Months of Children’s Church – YES {Actually 11 months, so yay}
7. Vlog Once a Week – YES 

Writing weekly and monthly goals was a really great way to assess each month of 2018 and then set goals accordingly. Altogether I had a total of 126 monthly goals, and here’s the breakdown of how I did on them:
101 YES
22 NO
3 Forgotten

And because I like looking back and seeing what each month was spent focusing on, I’m including the monthly goals below.
