I am so late to the “4 Simple Goals” party but thought I would just jump on the bandwagon because I’ve been doing a lot of thinking lately about my life and the results haven’t been pretty. I need something to add some “oomph” to my life. I think the idea of just giving four easy goals to end the year is perfect. Onto my goals:
I suck at finances. I suck at money and saving and budgeting. I don’t make much to begin with and it’s really hard to figure out a budget when my paycheck varies every time. I’ve made a few budgets but then they just sit on my computer, never to be thought of again. So I’m making this a priority. I need to figure out my budget, see where my money has been going, and take control of my finances.
I’ve been thinking about taking a technology break for the past few days, but due to one of my classes, I can’t totally disconnect from social media. Instead, I’m going to disconnect from all technology on the weekends. This means I won’t be spending hours tied to my computer to catch up on blogs I failed to get to through the week. It means no Twitter and Facebook. It means taking time away from my computer to recharge. I think it’s also going to help me in the homework department to catch up and focus on school and family time. I’m being too attached to technology and finding self-worth in blog comments and Twitter replies. It’s time to take a step back.
