2020 Goals for the Year

As you know, I have been breaking my hiatus in order to bring you my goals for 2020. Along with sharing my goals, I will be posting my book list for year as well.

Master Budget Planning & Consistently Follow the Plan

I am desperately trying to get my spending under control, save some money, and pay down my debt. I am hoping that following Dave Ramsey to the nth power will help with paying off my debt.

Action Plan:

Radically Change My View and Care of Myself

I need to take better care of myself, and stop being so hard with me. I give everyone else a lot of grace, but that grace is severely lacking when it comes to myself. I am aiming to change that this year.

Develop and Maintain a Lasting and Realistic Relationship with Christ

My relationship with Christ has been lacking and weak. I wish to have a stronger relationship, and to lean into Him more often.

Apply for the Masters in Psychology Program

I will be 35 years old next year, and it is time that I finish my master’s program. But sadly, I need to take the GRE and get that over with.
