Goals

I said on Facebook that I wouldn't write on here until someone made a comment on my last post. Thankfully you responded and now I get to figure out something to write about. I don't really have a lot to say, but here is what has been on my mind lately.

My summer officially started a week and a half ago. I went from being supper busy with my first year of teaching, and also being Elders Quorum president. Then I got released and started summer vacation. Talk about a major life change. It has led me to think a lot about my life and to set some goals.

Goals are important and it is also important that you write them down and share them. This is what I am hoping for today, I really want to use this time, that I am blessed to have, to better myself. I usually divide my goals into four main areas: Physical, spiritual, social, and school. I suppose I could change school to work now that I graduated but it's kind of the same thing for me I guess.

Spiritual:
  • Study the Book of Mormon every day.
  • Daily Morning and Evening personal prayer.
  • Be the best FHE Dad ever! (My new calling).
  • Attend the temple at least once a month.

Physical:

  • Exercise five days a week.
  • At least two days of weight training a week.

Social:

  • Go on at least one date a month.
  • Plan more activities.
  • Do more with people outside my apartment.

School:

  • Plan my literacy block better around the science and history units we teach.
  • Come up with more interactive and investigative math lessons.
  • Work on my writing units for the year.
  • Continue working on getting my masters and more education.

These seem pretty basic, but at least it gives me something to work on. If you see me make sure to ask me how i'm doing. Plus even with this, I still have a lot of free time. So if you have any other ideas for me or need some help doing something or want to come hang out let me know. Until then I'm going to try and become the best person I can and not let the whole summer pass me by. Life is good, I love summer!

Me working out and continuing my education

Gotta reach those goals!

I think it's a great idea to share your goals, because then you feel more responsible to live up to them. Let's hang out sometime!! I haven't seen you in a long, long time!

It's working already, Jake this morning told me I needed to go to the gym and lift weights. I wasn't especially in the mood, but then he told me it was my goal and I better do it. Couldn't argue with that and I had a productive morning. Thanks Jake!
