Goals for the New Year

My Goals for the New Year!

2015 Setting the stage for a new Mark

2015 Goals Intheworldnotofitdotcom.wordpress.com

I know that a lot of Bloggers had their goals up for New Years. But, I needed time to really think and see what I needed to adjust, fix, or add to my new year. We have a lot going on here all the time and I can get easily lost in it all and fail miserably at goal setting.

I have categorized my list by a GOAL MARK. Then, added goals that were specific to those areas. So here it goes:


  • Keep better records of personal banking
  • Work on better credit (due to a new roof addition of over 10 thousand dollars this kinda ruined it last year)
  • Put $ aside for dental expenses and budget that into the main Budget. (With 7 mouths and 5 of them being children…this is a good idea)
  • Maintain and keep better records for Business plans/Ads/Book Promotion/Book Development Processes and separate these better from personal accounts.


  • Continue to develop In the World but, not of it Blog
  • Write 24-30 Substantial Blog Posts
  • Acquire 3-5 valid, true to the blog, things/products that I use/recommend personally, and qualifying Affiliates
RealityWriter.Wordpress.com Blog & Author:
  • 15-20 Substantial Blog Posts
  • Do research for 2 other Books in Que..
  • Begin writing for the two other books
  • Finish small finalizing ends for Facing The Grey
  • Work with Editor in May
  • Get Ideas together for the Type-setting on Facing The Grey



  • Make compliments and notice husbands accomplishments (speak his love-language)
  • Leave Love notes for him 2 or 3 times per month
  • Spend more quality time with him weekly, alone!


  • Do fun things as a family 2-3 times per month
  • Help with homework/Bartons System at least 2 times per week
  • Go for regular walks 2 times per week with my youngest son
  • Read aloud the Bible 4 nights a week
  • Read aloud 1 Chapter Book a month

  • Go for walks 2 times per week with my youngest son
  • Do more Gardening outside

  • Organize one room completely per month
  • Attempt to have dinners earlier by prepping food earlier and being more organized

Now last but not least and almost forgot to add it in:


  • Try to quit coffee (my health has really gone done hill and I think this may help)
  • Bake something once per week to learn and get better at it for kids’ lunches
  • Spend 1 hour per week to do nails, or have a bath
  • Schedule time everyday to do book writing
  • Schedule time in to visit with a friend from church twice per month
  • Read 1 Fiction book a month
  • Start to read 1 non-fiction book a month
  • Read and memorize scripture on motherhood
  • Spend 30 minutes in prayer/bible reading a day

Okay so, that is it! I will revisit these next year to see how my goals played out and if I was able to accomplish all of them or even some of them 🙂 What are your goals for 2015? Are some similar or very different? Philippians 3:14 KJV “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
