Setting Attainable Goals In Twenty-Nineteen



Establishing where I was mentally with content creation aka. 'Making Changes To My Blog & Social Media Platforms' has provided me with such clarity and focus, that I now realize I'm going to have to play catch-up in the real world. So while I do think it's only fair that I endeavor to achieve the same successes offline, with some life goals... it's going to be hard. I mean, I would love to go freelance full time by September as much as the next guy, but this won't happen if I don't break down my thoughts and ideas into more manageable chunks.

And that my friends, is why I am putting my best foot forward (that's my right foot to be exact) and coming at you with my top five attainable goals in twenty-nineteen. 

#GOAL 1 - START SAVING 

If I had a pound for every time I told myself that I needed to start saving in twenty-eighteen, I probably wouldn't be setting this attainable goal. But hey ho, it's imperative that at the age of twenty-two I should open an appropriate ISA savings account and begin the process of setting aside some rainy day funds. Perhaps if I started saving I could go travelling more or even buy more equipment for my photography business, let alone a small deposit for a house. I'm going to make a start on this by counting up my loose change at the end of every week. 

#GOAL 2 - START FREELANCING

Okay yes, I have made a start with freelance life. I have my business model, I have a studio and I have all of the equipment I need. I have also managed to rebrand and relaunch my blog and am now in the midst of setting up a YouTube channel - I guess you could say I like to put my eggs in a lot of baskets. Speaking of eggs I did manage to land a second shooter/assistant role with Sarah Bryden Photography (one of my favourite photographers here in Northern Ireland) and I'll be shooting my first wedding with her on Easter Monday. 

#GOAL 3 - BE MORE ACTIVE 

Since January 7th 2019, I have managed to lose a total of 2 stone - but being active isn't really my forte. I have a bad habit of sitting in one spot for long periods of time, so now that Sam (our pupper) has fully recovered from surgery, I can finally get outside and start walking with him again. My friend Steph and I have also started a squat challenge and upped our water intake recently, so I would love to find other more creative ways to be active. 

#GOAL 4 - GO TRAVELLING 

Go travelling is and always will be something that remains on my list of attainable goals. I am by no means a home-bird and I love getting away - whether that's by road trip to Donegal, or Amsterdam for my 21st. I'm hoping Matthew and I will be able to see more places this Summer, like Scotland or somewhere abroad like Venice. However... if we go back to my first goal - I need to start saving in order to go travelling (I have this all thought out). 

#GOAL 5 - START DRIVING AGAIN 

After our car accident last year, driving has become something I completely and utterly avoid with all costs. I hate being a passenger in a car, so you can only imagine my distaste when it comes to having to move the damned thing. But regardless of this, I need to learn how to fight my own demons and I definitely need to grab my independence back, especially if I'm going to be shooting portraits up and down the country with Sarah Bryden. Disclaimer; sorry Mum and Dad, sorry Matthew - I know I can be a right pain in the neck, but I promise I won't rely on lifts from you forever.
