Time for a check-in! Every month, I detail some of my goals and the progress I’ve made on them. Here, I focus on the most immediate goals – the ones I want to accomplish within the year. While some long-term goals may show up in one form or another, I focus on the individual milestones each goal in these posts. I’ve divided my goals into six major groups here, even though I usually use more, specific groups when I write down my goals. For each one, I’ve written my overall progress and progress since the last month. I encourage you to write down your goals as well and start tracking your progress on the things you want to change each month.

A lot has happened in the last month. I’ve changed jobs, I launched the podcast, and I’ve been reading a lot again. Due to all of the things changing this month, though, I’ve slipped on some of my other goals – most notably: losing weight. Due to the new job (and my commute), I’m finding it hard to fit in time for exercise. I’ll need to join a gym near my workplace, but both my job and I may be moving in a few months, so it’s hard to pin down a good location.

Last, I’m gearing up to start planning for my next large project: writing a book. I talk more about this in episode two of One Small Step. That’s all I’ll say for now. You’ll have to wait or join the newsletter for further updates.
