The Next 12 Months

Image Source

Following on from last weeks post on my goals for the next six months, I have my goals for the next twelve months! These goals were a lot harder to set, as I am unsure what my situation is going to be in 12 months time. I may be living in my own place, I may still be living with my parents. I may be working, or I may not. So I have just come up with some goals based on my situation at the present time, assuming that nothing changes. The beauty with this is that if my situation or circumstances change, I can adapt my goals and change them to suit. It is good to allow your goals to be flexible so that you aren't disappointed if something happens and you have to change them, or come up with new goals altogether.

So here are my 3 goals for the next 12 months:

1. To be financially stable
Like a lot of people coming out of a relationship, I have walked away with a less than desirable financial position. I have accepted this and I am slowly working through it all. I hope to be back on my feet in 12 months time and working towards savings.

2. To have more professional photos taken of my munchkin
When Master A was about 2 months old, we had family photos taken. Now that he is almost 19 months old, I would love to have more done, and have made it a goal to ensure that some are taken in the next year. I have allowed a year as professional photos can be very expensive, and I want to be sure that I can afford to get the photos that I want.

3. To be looking at getting my own place
The support from my parents has been great these last 6 months, but I would love to have a place of my own to call home. So I am hoping that if I haven't already, I will be looking at getting a place, just for me and my munchkin!

So there you have my goals for the next 12 months. I am not expecting too much of myself, and these are flexible if anything should happen and they need to be changed. I would love for you to share how you work out your goals. Do you work out 6 and 12 month goals, or do you just do one list? Please take the time to share with us your goals.

Some great goals there :) I love how u have put professional pics as a goal, I've been wanting to get a professional family shot done, but never seem to do anything about it... well that and the $$...

about ur $$ goals, have u heard of a site called simple savings? it's helped us out a lot

With our goals, a lot of the bigger ones are much the same, we know that we both want the same things, mainly house reno's or debt paying so it's easier to make a plan and do something about it, but smaller personal goals such as the professional shots never seem to get done. Because it's something I want and something hubby never thinks about, I tend to push it to the back of the list.

I really should do a goal setting post on my blog, thanks for the reminder :)

Thanks for the website I will have to check it out :)

Have you thought about putting your spare gold coins at the end of each day away in a jar and using that to get some photos done? It's money that is usually wasted on a coffee or vending machine anyway so why not put it to good use? That way you don't feel like you're actually losing heaps of money when you fork out hundreds of dollars for pics.

I wish you the best of luck with your goals and will be heading over to your website today to check out your blog. Chrissie xx
