My Goals For 2013

I used to write down my goals for each year, usually during the first month of the year to remind me of what my priorities are but I don't really put too much pressure on myself.  I want it to be a "win-win" situation wherein I could draw some inspiration from my set goals and I could challenge myself to be better each year.   I don't actually push myself too hard in achieving my goals, I take it one step at a time.  If by the end of the year and most of the items listed were marked as "done", then I could talk to myself and say, "Hey you've done a good job".  From there, I would choose a reward for myself.  Funny, isn't it?  But seriously, I find this effective as I normally end up achieving 80 to 90 per cent of my goals each year. :)

Okay enough of those stuff, let's get down to facts, my goals for this year are :


1.)  Totally get out of liabilities and concentrate more on building my assets.  With this said, I have to make sure that all the things that I need to pay off this year will all be settled and that includes my property taxes.  My gosh, when my second house was built, I asked somebody to process the tax declaration papers for me and it was done actually.  Unfortunately, I overlooked on that since I was working abroad and I really never had time to examine everything when I get back home for vacation.  So we religiously pay all our lots taxes but not the building.  We only realized it this year when we were about to pay the lot taxes again for 2012. I hope that  I could settle all within this year together with my balance for another lot. By the end of 2013, I should be totally free from all the liabilities. (fingers crossed)

2.)  I wish to have a small business for this year.  Something that would keep me busy if one day I decided to stop working.  I already have several plans but I've always been a careful planner.  I have this habit of weighing things carefully before I go in which I think is good for me.  Also, I would like to start small then progress to something bigger when things go into my favor.  I hate to take risks.

3.)  I wish to have our garage covered with concrete roofing.  At least to get it ready for the upcoming house expansion.  We are looking into building another room but maybe not this year yet.  But who knows? :)

4.)  A vacation well spent with the whole family, well...not necessarily out of the country as me and my husband are already always out of the country most of the time due to work. Something simple but memorable weekend get away perhaps.  If I could bring my kids for another out of the country trip this year, then that would just be a bonus, but I'm not listing it down as one of my priorities for this year. (lol) Sorry kids.

5.)  I'm planning to hold a joint birthday celebration for me and my son but I would probably be doing it on December and that would be a unique celebration ever as I am looking at celebrating it on a different way. :)

6.)  I would seriously look at improving myself in the kitchen, so I am expecting myself to cook and bake more this year.      

7.)  I would like to beat my last year's earnings from my blogs.  I know that by saying this, I am giving pressure to myself already but I should strive to get better each year, right?

8.)  To move on with my life and letting go of all the heart aches and pains that I experienced for the past years. To do what must be done and to only keep the positive things and thoughts in mind and get away from all sort of negativity's that could ruin my passion for life.

9.)  I want to have a mini "herb garden" at home and would probably start collecting bonsai's. Gosh, this has been a long plan that never materialized.. Hope my family could support me in my "simple wish".  (kids, are you listening?)

10.) To start crafting which is one of my love and passion but due to a limited time, I always fail on this and it always gets forwarded to my new set of goals for the following year (hehe).  

11.) To be more conscious about my health and this means having preference on eating healthy foods and going for regular check ups.  Learn yoga and other simple exercises.

12.) To have a substantial amount of savings.  I always do this each year, but I have to be better this year.

Whether I achieve these things or not, what is important is that I have set my goals which I can look forward to this year that could motivate myself to strive harder in my work and in improving myself on every aspect of my life.   

This will keep me going!
Wish me luck!

  28. Good luck in achieving your goals! The property tax problem happened to us also and we ended up paying almost half a mil in back taxes. Grrr... I know it was our fault also for having overlooked it, but it wouldn't have happened also if they had their records there updated. Then it wouldn't have taken years to notice that we, inadvertently, have been amiss with the building tax. :P
