What I Want: Goals 2011

December 30, 2010 at 11:03 AM 2 comments

Time for some brainstorming! Need to come up with a plan for the coming New Year. I read Dave Bruno’s recent post on developing habits and under his suggestion, I will only set 3 habits to strive for in 2011.

  1. Meet the 100 Thing Challenge mark. by selling or donating as many material possessions as possible.
  2. Practice raw food veganism by following the 52 weekly goals I have aligned for myself.
  3. Pay off and close at least 2 of our 4 credit cards by saving any and all extra money received, creating an emergency fund, and selling off copious amounts of excess goods.

I am excited for 2011. It will be very interesting to see how the weeks and months progress.

    Great goals Nada. My wife and I have been purging possessions in earnest for several months now though in truth we’ve been slowly purging for the last 7 years.

    We will likely fall within the 100 things of ownership once we sell our house and begin house sitting our way across America. We aren’t much for counting possessions though, we like instead to practice mindful ownership, making sure we own what we need and that we use what we own.

    Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Spyros! Thanks for the comment-liment! I have been purging on and off for years but right now, my focus is on the freedom I seek to spend time enjoying my daughter and husband. I have to really stay focused on that and not get so caught up in the details (counting, etc.). It’s not a contest, right? LoL!
