2017. Making real goals, realistically.

Most years I make goals in my head. However I never wrote them down. I never gave them a dedicated chance. I never took them seriously. I didn’t act as determined as I should have.

I always wished to be ambitious, energetic, vigorous. However, whenever I tried to be a better me. I always allowed a self destruct button. I always told myself it was okay to give up. There was always a reason to do so.

People would be confused because “You’re not being yourself. It’s weird.”

I have the worst luck nothing ever works out. Why even try again? I’m wasting my time.

Self destructive behavior has become something I have learned to do, and learned to do well.


So for this lovely year of 2017 I am going to attempt to give myself a fighting chance. Small goals set over a quarterly amount of time. Smaller goals should be easier to complete and hence lead to sense of satisfaction.

Then have three large goals to be completed for the end of the year but broken up into the quarters as well to make the work load easier.
