I made goals in six different categories and used verbs to represent those categories. I decided to use verbs for my category headings because I think it will help me remember that achieving my goals takes purposeful action toward them. These goals also laid the foundation for creating my 2018 vision board.

I’m excited to get to work on these goals because WOW I can already tell this is going to be a great year!
