This year, I tried to make specific, concrete, measurable goals. I think most of them are, with only a couple exceptions (#12 and #14). This will make it a lot easier to keep track of my progress. Blogging monthly kept me somewhat accountable last year, but this year I wanted more. So I made myself a "Goals Journal" where I can keep a log of all my goals (and plan some of the bigger ones). Here's a look at what I'm talking about:
This journal is actually making me even more excited about accomplishing my goals this year!

What are your goals for 2017?
