30 during 30

As promised last year (sorry! Life and marriage and such got in the way), here is my hopefully not cliche 30 before 30 list, which has now turned into a 30 during 30 list since I hit the big 3-0 already! This is a list of 30 things that I would like to accomplish in the next year before I turn 31 years old.

The 30 During 30 List:

Spiritual Goals:
1. Memorize 30 Bible verses
2. Lead someone to Jesus
3. Volunteer to help at more church events
4. Get involved with another area of ministry at church
5. Become a consistent tither
6. Learn how to really study the Bible

Physical/Health Goals:
7. Lose 50 pounds
8. Run an entire 5K
9. Finish a half marathon in under 3 hours
10. Be able to do 30 consecutive real push ups

Beauty/Fashion Goals:
11. Learn to effectively put on eyeliner (seriously…I missed that day during girl school)
12. Learn how to remix every item of clothing into at least 3 different outfits

Financial Goals:
13. Finish Dave Ramsey Baby Step 1
14. Reduce debt by at least half
15. Save at least $4,000 towards a new (to us) car to replace Will’s truck
16. Learn how to create and stick to an effective monthly household, zero based budget

Relationship Goals:
17. Celebrate 1 year of marriage (this is a slam dunk!)
18. Go on a real date night with Will at least once a month
19. Hang out with female friends at least once a month
20. Invite a female I’d like to become friends with to have coffee every couple of months

Organization/Domestic Goals:
21. Finish unpacking/putting stuff away/purging
22. Finish wedding thank you notes
23. Create an 8 week rotating meal plan
24. Stick to Flylady’s plan so the house always looks presentable!

Writing Goals:
25. Post on my blogs more consistently by creating a posting schedule
26. Sell at least 4 pieces of writing
27. Finish NaNoWriMo in November
28. Finish writer website/online portfolio

Career Goals:
29. Finish librarian website/online portfolio
30. Work towards the completion of website design certification

There you have it! I’ve really thought about these goals to make sure they are “SMART” (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, and Time-Bound). I think that will help me be a lot more successful than I’ve been in the past with vague goals. As always, I plan to come back and update as I complete goals or make progress in others. Does anyone else have any before or during 30 goals?
