What are your goals for 2016?


Hello it's me cgmmmx.
The new year is coming up, and a new chance to do something for ourselves (or at least how I try to see it). I would like to know what are your plans for the upcoming year ( no, I'm not trying to stalk you, I promise....or am I?). Remember that doing things within your grasp and one step at a time actually works.

Here is my list:
-learn to control myself when thrown into large mobs of crowds.
-learn to hold a conversation without thinking about "if this" or "if that" type of tiring nonsense.
-appreciate myself more
-end my social anxiety once and forever
-begin learning Japanese and master hiragana and katakana with some kanji.
-take a guitar class
-learn how to invest and invest in my local bank
-practice doing 100 push-ups, sit-ups, curls, squats, reps with weights a day and incrementing reps as I feel stronger?
-get a boating license, fishing license, forklift license(?)
-meet 10 new people
-sleep early, eat right, exercise right
-travel domestically to five places
-WIP

I will eventually cross out each goal as I complete them.

Just pretty much take my life back. 2015 was the worst year of my life.

How can You be my treasure if I'm digging for gold
How can You be my fire if my heart has grown cold
How can You be my future if I've made this my home ~ Love & the Outcome

Keep paying down debt
Get stuff fixed
Become more organized
Get health insurance

These are pretty realistic and attainable goals.

Write a novel, gain a lot of muscle mass, get a car, make some long-lasting friendships, visit Japan, and create a lot of awesome music!

In all honesty if I can just find a new job that doesn't stress me the hell out and at least pays somewhat fairly then 2016 will be a success in my book. I'm tired of having more responsibilities/work being thrown at me w/ my current **** job with nothing to show for it for so many years.

Find a second job, don't be a loser, and don't be anxious

I am the son and the heir of a shyness that is criminally vulgar. I am the son and heir of nothing in particular.

You shut your mouth. How can you say I go about things the wrong way? I am human and I need to be loved, just like everybody else does.

I wouldn't label conquering your SA and other SA related things as goals...just because those are somewhat out of your control. Just do everything you can in order to help yourself and if you happen to be less anxious afterwards then great! But i think listing conquering SA as a goal is setting yourself up for failure and is just going to start of your new year negatively. Anyways my advice, focus on actual goals you can achieve and the good feelings and confidence will follow

Bleh.

Yes I agree! I guess I can try to control SA, but it will eventually eat me up. Instead I'll just try to be more active on the SAS forum and read up on it I guess. Many of these goals I set for myself really just makes me feel like that there's actually something to look forward to for the upcoming year. Don't get me wrong, I know I can achieve at least half of these done by the middle of the year by being persistent and with some difficulty.

That sounds very cool! & When your done making music, tell me I will listen.

The only love affair I have ever had was with music.

Be admitted to the graduate program of my choice and do well in it.
Find a local volunteer group that I can fit into my work schedule and become active in.
Save up money for a proper international summer vacation the following year.

gain 10 15 lbs. Maintain a solid relationship with my mom, and put the past in the past. I'd love to hear from my dad, and or feel comfortable enough to talk with him and my brother. The feeling of having a sick dad but not talking with him is just killing me. I feel so abandoned by so many people and would like to do a better job concentrating on myself this next year and really put a good foot forward.

I'd also like to make some new friends this year. I need a refresher when it comes to the circle of friend(s) I currently have.
