I like to have some goals, even simple ones, like..."today I'm going to spray weeds". I like to think I've accomplished something at the end of the day.
I do feel better when I set and achieve goals and I can usually pull myself out of a down mood by intentionally doing so. But there is a part of me that sometimes feels that this is backwards in a way. Ideally, I envision myself feeling satisfied first and then accomplishing things out of a sense of completeness. Maybe too idealistic.
I have goals that I accomplish very well.
My goal is to try to get Alzheimers before my huzz does.
I might consider that strategy
Right now my goals are to lose a little more weight. I lost almost 26 pounds over the last few months without really trying. My eating habits just changed so that I don't feel the need to eat as much.
I also somewhat set a goal to finish my album at least within the next 12 months. That partly depends on how much my son can get done since he's co-producing and engineering it.
I always set financial goals for myself. I'm happy to say I've already exceeded my end of 2022 goal.
Another goal is to do a lot less procrastinating so I can keep up with things better.
