This is something I recommend.
Something about writing down your goals and saying them to other makes them that much more real. I've started and failed a million diets, routines, and initiatives in my life, but I'm keeping it simple this year. I set three goals: one school, one community, and one personal.
For my school goal, I want to spend two uninterupted hours working every day. Part of why I end up spending so many hours working is that I'm distracted, I stop and start, and I try and do too many tasks at once. I'm going to go with this and see if it doesn't increase my efficiency.
For my community goal, I want to go to and host more community events. I went to a few and hosted one, but these are both fun and informative for me, so I don't know what all of the fuss is about when my calendar tells me I'm supposed to be somewhere.
For my personal goal, I want to get out of bed when I'm supposed to get out of bed and do something, anything, so I don't just snooze and go back to bed. This could be gym, punching bag, making breakfast, or anything else. Once I'm out of the bed, I'm out. The issue is literally rolling over and I've not been able to do that for months until the very last moment where I have to in order to avoid losing my job.
Never too late to start a new routine. Seems simple enough. Here's to hoping it is.
