Every year, I find myself joining the "New Year Resolution" bandwagon and like many, quickly fall off. With 2020 behind us, I vow that 2021 is going to be different. If there is anything that last year taught me is that I want this year to make a genuine difference in my life; since we have the time. As we embark on a new year, I want to share some of my goals for this upcoming year.
You'll often find me speaking about goals, not dreams. I heard this once and it resonated with me: "the difference between a goal and a dream is that a goal has a timeline." As we close out January, I'd like to dedicate the remaining 334 days of 2021 in attaining those dreams with a due date. Here are my goals, friends.
I don't often set myself up for personal goals, but this year will be different. I'm going to laser focus and tackle a personal goal, along with a aggressive financial goal and a goal for my content. I think there is merit in having simple, direct goals to attain, rather than number of goals. I'm really writing that sentence as a reminder for myself. In any event, let's get into 2021 goals!
Lose 50 Pounds
Often I set myself up for goals surrounding business ventures, but this year I wanted to consider my own health. Although a lofty goal, I will lose fifty pounds by the end of 2021. I have dedicated myself to healthier eating habits, daily exercise and taking care of my mental health. With those three tenets at the forefront, it's time to lose fitty el bees!
Financial Freedom. It's a word that I've heard been thrown around, but I want a little of it on my own. This year I would like to save $10,000. Having $10K would aid in my dream of owning a home — perhaps my Palm Springs bungalow — and building a family. In 2021, I will dedicate myself to constraint on wants vs. needs. I, like many, wouldn't mind having $10,000 hanging out in my bank account.
100 Videos & 100 Podcasts
As many of you know, I have been committed to my YouTube channel since early 2019. Since beginning the unboxing channel, I have published 77 videos. The goal for 2021 is to record, publish and get to 100 videos on my channel. That's 23 videos this year — I got this. I also love podcasting and have been doing so for half a decade. The second content goal is to reach 100 podcasts of the Cup of Jon Jon. We're almost there. Here we go! ::mario voice::
Partner with Pals
Last but not least, I want to partner with more of my pals! I want to be a flexible collaborator with my two friends. I will continue co-hosting shows of That Podcast with LPiddy and Jon Jon, along with a new venture on YouTube called JR Slots. This should be a fun year of fun with friends!
2020 is behind us and 2021 is right in front of us. 2020 made me understand that one year can make all the difference. I am dedicated to use 2021 to transform, reinvent & ultimately live the life I want to lead— or at least get a little bit closer to it. I am determined to reach each of the goals I shared above. Now, we have 334 days left in the year to make these dreams with due dates a reality. What are YOU gonna do this year?!
