32 favorites giveaway
"A few years ago I made lists of things to before my next birthday depending on how old I was that year. If I was 29 turning 30, I would list '29 things to do before I turn 30,' for example. Spoiler: I didn't do well with that. It was hard to say what I'd be interested in doing towards the end of the year at the beginning of the year. For the past few years I've been making a list of monthly goals instead. It makes more sense because I'm more likely to know what I'll be interested in doing on a monthly basis. Every year I get better at accomplishing the goals I set out to do. I'm learning how to prioritize my time and how big tasks can be broken down into smaller tasks, which are then easier to accomplish."
