This post contains affiliate links. This week, I was busy, but apparently I was busy with things not on my yearly goals list. I was only able to make progress on a few of my goals for 2022 week 2 of 52.
My Goals for 2022
Stay Ahead in My Work
My goal is to stay one to two weeks ahead. This week, I wrote extra posts for the blog and am now one week ahead. Yay! Next week, I want to get at least 1/2 a week ahead with my freelance writing.
Likewise, while I sometimes get my blog posts done a week in advance, I want to branch into other topics that will require more planning and research. The following goals will help with that:
Keep an Editorial Calendar
Take Classes on SEO and Pinterest
Update 52 Blog Posts
Eliminate Broken Links
Not yet. I have 1,600 broken links on my blog! I started to tackle this, but then I realized it would be better to work on eliminating old pages that no longer have worth. Doing that will take care of a lot of the broken links, but I need to learn how to do it properly so people don’t get an error page. (I really should be better at behind the scenes work as a blogger, but I really just like to write!!)
Get My Two Blog Email Accounts Down to Zero
This goal is 2.6% complete.
At the start of the year, my main work email had 112,413 messages; it now has 110,086. The other had 8,291; it currently has 6,869.
We did so many home improvements in 2021 that most of 2022 will be spent replenishing our home improvment fund. However, there are some small improvements that we’d like to get done.
- Put handles on the kitchen and bathroom cabinets,
- Replace the sliding glass door handle (My husband did this one, but the lock wasn’t included with the handle. That part is on order, and when it comes, I can check this off the list!)
- Finish our master bathroom (We had a new shower tile installed, but now we need to do something with our vanity, paint the walls where we had the large mirror removed, and add smaller mirrors.)
- Replace the underlay on our roof. (This will either be done in 2022 or early in 2023, depending on life circumstances.)
Walk 400 Miles This Year
This goal is 4% complete. This week I walked 9 miles for 169 minutes.
Last week, I walked 7.5 miles for 146 minutes.
For the year, I’ve walked 16.5 miles for 315 minutes.
Make a Recipe Binder
I have a lot of recipes our family likes, but they’re not written down anywhere.
Have One Health Challenge a Month
Next week I will share what the goal for January is.
Take One Day a Week Completely Off Work
I already feel like this goal is not going to happen. Because of our busy year in 2022, I don’t see how I can take one day off completely each week. My husband suggested I just take random days off for the year, and I think that might be what happens. I didn’t take any days off this week.
Spend No More Than 45 Minutes on Social Media a Day
This goal is 4% complete. Two weeks down, 50 more weeks to go.
Finish The Bible in a Year
This goal is 2% completed. I listened to episode 186 this week.
Read 52 Books
This goal is 5.7% complete. I finished three books so far:
Wuthering Heights (review cooming soon)
Write in My Journal 100 Times This Year
This goal is 1% complete. I didn’t do this at all this week. I have to carve out a time to do this regularly, or this goal will be difficult to compete.
Take Four Local Trips
We plan to get out and about more, and one of the ways to do so is to take four local trips. I’m not sure where we’ll go yet or when. That depends on the pandemic.
Travel to Michigan
We haven’t seen my mom in 23 months. We’re hoping to be able to drive out to see her in Michigan since she is still leery of flying. When will we go? Again, that depends on the pandemic!
Travel to Japan
I’m putting this goal here because we were planning to go to Japan in February, 2020. Covid had already hit Japan by then, so my husband’s mom asked us to cancel the trip. Little did we know how much our world would change in March, 2021. We’d love to go to Japan in 2022, but that will depend on how the pandemic goes.
There you have it, my goals for 2022! I’d love to hear what you’re planning to accomplish in the new year.
