I usually spend the first month of the year figuring out what I'm going to do and getting myself organized. This year is no different.

Primary goals for January

1. Finalize my 2022 major goals

I set a lot of goals last year and fell short on most of them. Although on paper I still completed more goals than 2020, it didn't feel particularly good. This year I'm limiting myself to a smaller number of more important goals.

2. Finalize my 2022 secondary goals

There were a lot of filler goals on my list last year, which meant I just didn't bother with them. I'm keeping things more focused this year and keeping my secondary list shorter.

3. Set up the 2022 goals hub

Looking back at 2021 there were a lot of goals where I didn't add much detail, which didn't help when it came to working through them. By February I want all of my goals - primary and secondary - to have detail pages.

Secondary goals for January

1. Publish 4 posts

I didn't write as much as I wanted to last year, so I want to start the new year in a more positive way.

This year I'm sticking to the word focus for my goals. I've always struggled with this, and it feels pretty darn awful to look back at a year and feel like I've achieved nothing.
