A New Year, New Goals

1. Run 500 Miles

I know it sounds a little crazy but it is totally possible. I can pull off ten miles a week pretty well. Plus, it should keep me motivated all year. I have a tendency to sparkle and fizzle out, but this makes me have to be consistent. Consistency is not my strong suite, but that's why I need to work on it. 

2. Hike Koko Head and Diamond Head Already

I have lived here for almost a year and a half and still haven't done these famous hikes. It is time to get on it and some other ones. Looking forward to this one. 

3. Save $4000 For Travel

This wouldn't be for this year, but next. I would love to take the family to Japan for the Cherry Blossom Festival. I am also trying to save up to go to New Zealand with a friend next year. I know I'll need more than $4000, but you have to start somewhere.

4. Increase Net Worth by 25%

This might be my hardest goal, alongside running. I am really excited to get back into finance. In my year, or so, off I didn't accumulate any debt, but my savings have not been growing as much as I would like. I also have not been working at it either, so there is definitely a direct correlation in that.

5. Do A Pull Up

Ha! I will do this dang it! There are very specific things I need to do to accomplish this. One, is to lose some more weight. Losing weight is not actually one of my goals, but it is hopefully a result of some of them.

6. Run a Half Marathon

I have already signed up for the Hibiscus Half in May. Hopefully I don't die. The furthest I have ran without stopping is six miles. So I am a little nervous, but I know I can do it.

7. Read 30 Books

I am again ashamed at how little I read in 2013. Time to correct that. I am also needing to read more finance books. To keep my head in the game.

8. Join a Spanish Club

I am hoping this will help with learning to speak Spanish. I have a pretty decent grasp on the language, but I want to be able to speak conversationally, with people who can speak Spanish. 

9. Go Swing Dancing!

I used to swing dance when I was in high school and was actually pretty good. I won a milkshake once! Just one way to stay active and have some fun. I am hoping if I find a place I like that it will be a once or twice a month thing. 

To accomplish my goals for the year, my plan is to break them down into monthly goals, with additional goals, that may not be in my yearly plan. If that makes sense.
