Scoutie Girl: Tooling Around - Make 2013 your best year yet

I’m not one for New Year’s resolutions, however January is a great time to consider your plans and goals for the year, don’t you think?

With that in mind, my first Scoutie Girl post for the year is all about defining your goals (business or otherwise) and some tricks to help you find the time to achieve them.

You can read the post here.

My goals for 2013 you ask? This is by no means a comprehensive list, but here are a couple of things:

  • Edit our overseas photos and create an album (February)
  • Launch the Atypical Type A redesign and shop (March)
  • Finally renovate the bathroom (Easter break)
  • Do something special to celebrate The Man’s and my ten years (!) together (August)
  • Do up the porch and front garden (September)

Plus many, many plans I have for the business!

How about you? What’s on your agenda for 2013?

  • Happy New Year!

    I love that you assign set time frames for you resolutions/goals.
    Not only does giving them realistic time constraints make them easier to fulfil, but it makes the whole concept of resolutions seem less cheap and overdone and much more genuine.

    • Yes it’s really about what you want to achieve over the whole year because it’s not like you can save ten grand, lose five kilos, go to Hawaii and renovate the kitchen all in the first half of January!

  • I am contemplating all of these things this week. I like how you have broken it up monthly, it feels less daunting.

    • Thanks Ayngelina, I find it helps a lot. It means that right now I am focusing on the upcoming deadlines with gusto while not freaking out and being overwhelmed with the entire year’s list.

  • got two things on my list for january/february:
    -redocorate the living room
    -clean the attic

    i should think about more tasks, i guess ;D
    Happy new Year! :)

    • Sounds great, Sara! Yes, definitely, once I’ve defined the goals I then break it down into actionable tasks so you can bite off little pieces at a time. Good luck!
