1. Stay Healthy: Instead of saying "I want to lose ____ pounds", I prefer to have a goal to just stay healthy. Eat as well as I can (minus Leeward Market days), workout in a somewhat consistent matter (ya know, unless I am too lazy), and just stay active overall.
2. Stay Positive: Often when you are in a position that you don't feel is where you are meant to be, you can tend to focus on the negative aspects of what is happening in your life. For me, I have always been a pretty "glass half-full" kind of person always looking "on the bright-side". I know that lately I have had to struggle with this more and more and I guess my goal is to keep my chin up, stay positive and not let the difficult aspects of my life take over everything positive.
3. Stay in Contact: One thing I have really noticed since starting out in the real world, is that it becomes harder and harder to stay in touch with people. In an age where our technology allows us to pretty much contact anyone at anytime this may seem unlikely, however, I find that when I get home from working all day all I want to do is sit back and relax. My goal is to call my friends and family more often. Even for just a 20 min call, or to leave a message. Its important because they are one of the most important things in my life.
4. Be Financially Savvy: Now that I am on my own financially, it is important that I continue to be smart about my money. I have a lot of plans for the next year and I will only accomplish them (aka travel to another country?????? What was I thinking?!?!!?) with some smart decisions. I am now using this really neat website called Mint.com. It allows you to consolidate all of your finances into one place. Student loans, bank accounts, credit cards and investments. It also allows you to budget for specific things over the course of a month. For instance setting a goal of only spending $150 on shopping, or $100 at restaurants. It really helps break down where you spend most of your money.
Annnnd I think that is it! Ya know, besides this huge list....
