I love New Years’ resolutions. In the past, I’ve made some very outrageous resolutions. As I’ve gotten older (and hopefully wiser!), my goals have scaled down to a more manageable size and become more specific. This makes it easier to actually complete them. This year, I kept my goal making to a minimum and included only things that I am actually passionate about.
- Complete my reading challenges.
- Continue learning Japanese. Sub goals:
- Read 6 children’s books in Japanese.
- Study for 365+ hours total in 2011.
- Study every single day. Monthly average should come out to 1 hr each day, even if I study half an hour some days and 90 minutes other days.
- Participate in the SOS Kitchen Challenge. Use the monthly challenge to develop my cooking skills.
- Run a 5k. I’ve been aiming for this goal for the past three years and have yet to run one. I ran the distance once, but I haven’t completed an actual 5k race.
- Learn how to bake! My father in law gave me Baking for Christmas and I am really excited to get started. My priority is learning how to bake homemade, healthy bread.
- Study Genesis in depth. This is the book I’ll be studying for the Operation Deeper Faith challenge, reading it in multiple translations (including one in Japanese).
- Keep reading the Bible every single morning. Right now I am working through Proverbs.
- Start a prayer journal.
