Earlier this week I decided today’s post needed to be a recap on my Q1 goals and a share of my Q2 goals. So I went looking for my first quarter goals. And then realized I never made any.

LOL. That seems right.

I actually did make some goals, but I only wrote them down in my planner. I did not share them on the blog. This is only my 18th blog post of the year. As I mentioned on Tuesday, my motivation is low.

It’s actually alarming to me how quickly and vastly my priorities and goals have changed over the last 18 months. Part of that is my small human and part of it is the pandemic and life as we know it hitting the fan. I formed my 101 in 1001 list back in July 2020 but I had no idea what life would be mid- or post-pandemic. (Let’s be real- I still don’t know.)

But I’m still chipping away at it.

I cherry picked a few 1001 Goals to work on in the first quarter. I was aiming to accomplish:

  • read 10 books (I read 5)
  • no fast food (lol, didn’t happen)
  • research taking a sign language course (also didn’t happen)
  • hike with Bristol (check!)
  • mail birthday/anniversary cards (check!)
  • mins game (I planned to do this in Feb., but I didn’t)
  • leave one random note of encouragement (honestly, I don’t frequent many public places)

As you can see, I did not do very much. But I’m ok with that.

During the second quarter I’d like to do the unfinished things from above plus:

  • read 10 more books
  • leave two notes
  • read a classic
  • ride bike for a week (I almost achieved this one… grrrrr.)
  • scrapbook year 6

These are all attainable goals but my level of motivation is the true variable. Time will tell what I accomplish and what I postpone.

Do you have any goals for April/May/June?

  1. I have a list of things I made in Dec 2020 that I want to get done in 2021, but I kept it a LOT more conservative than my list from Dec 2019, ha. I didn’t bother putting any travel! I say kudos to anyone finding any motivation to get anything “extra” done, this quarantining has been rough.

    1. I completely agree. Most of my to-do list items have to be practical, lol. I know I won’t accomplish everything on my 101 in 1001 but it’s been a fun way to pass the time trying 🙂

  2. I made goals for the year which I will recap at the halfway point. I don’t really do quarterly goals. I’m also slowly chipping away at my 40 before 40 list although I’m now wondering whether I will get to do any more of the travel-related items!

    1. If I don’t revisit them/remake them quarterly I’ll forget about them. Haha. Fingers crossed you get to do some traveling!! Good luck with your 40×40 list!
