It’s just happening! All my goals (without those too personal, of course) and everything what I am going to do to actually achieve them in one place! This is one of my dreams becoming reality.
So maybe short explanation: why on the internet? why not in any kind of notebook, file on my computer or anything like that, what I can keep for my personal use only? Answer for those question is very simple: because I need motivation. Even for such simple thing like tracking my goals progress. I use to have a lot of tries to have them written anywhere and any time I do something, I can just come back to them and mark what have been done. I’ve really tried. But always something happened. I’ve left my notebook in random place (like my friend’s home) and all my goals stayed there for quite long time. I had an excel file, but when my computer died, my file was gone as well.
So maybe all that list weren’t necessary? Well, they were. At least for me. It’s very motivating, when you have every goal, dream and habit you want to implement into your life in one place. That gives you some kind of peace of mind and let some thoughts like: “Ok, there is ton of work to be done, but I’ve done this, so I am one step closer” come into your mind. This is some kind of motivation on it’s own. You see how every activity you do, brings you closer to become who you are.
Ok, I’ve explained, I hope. And I don’t want to make my first post too long, so let’s talk about my actual goals. Most of them require long time to actually achieve them, but no mater what result it would be, I think it is worth trying.
1. Design my own website.
So this is kind of goals which doesn’t want to leave me, no matter what I do. I already have some clue about topic and form of my website, where I am going to upload reviews of book (you don’t know yet, but reading is my passion). But before I’ll start I need to learn some stuff and improve the other. Here is a short list:
- learn HTML and CSS (as these are the programming languages I am going to use, at least in the beginning)
- code my website
- improve my English skills (as you could already realize, I have a lot to do about this)
- prepare content (just read books and keep writing reviews – what is actually great, as same time I am going to improve my English skills – everyone wins).
2. Release my own app.
This is something what appeared in my head not too long ago, when I realized that most of apps I am using, are not good enough. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t thing they are bad. A lot of them are just great. The only thing is, that I would add some features, which I would use or just remove some which I don’t need. So I thought: “Daria, why cannot you just make your own one?”.
But for now, I am going to leave details about this, as first I will try to work on my website. When it will be launched, I’ll start going into my own app 😉 One thing at the time 😉
3. Learn Arabic language.
This is another dream of those never going away from my head. It’s hard to explain it, but Arabic language always attracted me. Even if I hadn’t had too much contact with this language, I think the way it sounds is beautiful.
4. Become more active.
This is something connected with well-being. All my previous goals require from me huge amount of time spent in sitting position. Well, let say I wouldn’t like to wake up one day realizing that I am not able to walk for longer than 15 minutes without being breathless. It would be scary for me. So I decided some jogging or bike every day won’t harm me, will it?
5. Post every day on this blog.
This is idea of having this blog. As to write anything here, I have to do something to have to write about (what means: get closer to make my dreams become a reality).
I’ve gave myself a deadline, so I would like, that every day at 11 pm (according to London’s time and of course except today, which appeared much earlier) I will upload new post. So it will give me some time after my work, to do anything I can write about.
I would like to make this blog look more my way. But as this is my first blog in my life, I just need to look little bit deeper into it. Tomorrow I’ll try to take some shots and at least use my own pictures instead of those, I am using at the moment.
Those are my five main goals at the moment. I have some more, but I need to to be realist: with my university starting after around 1 month and my work, I won’t have as much time as I wish I had. Every goal, which will be achieved or activity which will become my habit will be replaced with next one.
I hope you like this post. Please leave any suggestion or opinion in comment below. And I’ll see you tomorrow in next post.
P.S. Today I’ve done some activities, which made me a little closer, but I’ve decided that my tracking I’ll start tomorrow, as this post became quite long already. I realized, that I forgot about one of the most important habit I want to implement into my life which is to make plans for the next day. So I’ve done one for tomorrow 😉
Have a nice evening 🙂
