2019 Year in Review & My Goals for 2020


There is probably no other community I'm aware of that is as goal-focused as the planner community. Many of us carry around planners filled with reminders of the things we each hope to accomplish, trackers that encourage us to be better, and vision boards that inspire and motivate us to achieve those goals.

This post is perhaps a bit more personal to me, but like a lot of us, I get quite introspective at the end of each year and I really enjoy grabbing the goals section in my planner to see just what it was that I accomplished... or didn't. I wanted to share my thoughts on what worked for me, and a few tips I've learned on how to realistically set goals in the new year. Not to mention, I find that sharing my goals online with this wonderful community instills a bit of accountability for me, which is always a good thing.

First things first, 2019 was a great year. It was my first full year of running EO Edits, I found a new job that I love in the interior design field, I made some changes to my health and habits that I'm really proud of, and I made so many great memories. We traveled to Greece for our honeymoon, celebrated tons with friends and family. and spent our first full year in Calgary and our new house. Of course 2019 had it's ups and downs too, but overall, I'm happy with the results and what I was able to accomplish. Speaking of, let's talk about what goals I had set for 2019.
