With growth comes the knowledge that new year resolutions don’t work or maybe I just lack the discipline to follow through. Year in year out I set resolutions that I stick to for about a month and forget about, midway through the year I will remember and feel like crap for not sticking with it.
In the spirit of avoiding self-loathe I came up with a system that will help me stick to my goals. So I am sure you are wondering about my system, here is it; I set monthly goals which I further break down to weekly challenges and I try my best to remain realistic when setting the monthly goals.
I would love for you to come on this journey with me, a few of these goals I will fail at, fingers crossed to see how many but I am sure it will be an interesting journey.
- Finish reading ”Soldiers of Fortune”
- Read two new books
- Work on my ”Prayer Wall for 2017”; I realised a few years ago that you have to be deliberate with your Christian walk make an effort, work on your end of your relationship with God. There is nothing fancy about the ”Prayer Wall”, I just stick a piece of cardboard on a wall in my room write my prayer point on sticky notes and place them on it.
- Work on my ”Promise Jar”; this is a new exercise I plan to write out Bible text and put them in a glass jar so I can pick out one every morning and run with the text for the rest of the day.
- Explore new music, I believe it is about time I expand my playlist
- Plan a worship service.
