2021 Goal Progress: October

By , on

In January of 2021 I committed to some New Year’s resolutions: spend 15 minutes per day learning Spanish, workout 3 times per week, shoot my bow 3 times per week, read 73 books, and stay off tobacco. This is my progress so far in the year.

October 2021

I’m back! This month was way, way better than August or September, both of which kind of sucked.

Week 1: October 03 – 09

Somehow I missed a day of Spanish. I don’t know why it was such an ingrained habit for the first five months of the year, yet seems so difficult for me to keep up with now. Otherwise I’m back in the game with a strong week.

Week 2: October 10 – 16

I don’t know how I managed but I missed another day of Spanish. I just woke up the next day and immediately knew I’d forgotten. I did get 3 workouts. I only shot my bow two days due to my work schedule, and rain on one of my days off, but I’m really prioritizing working out. I’m happy with this week.

Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day in and day out.

Week 3: October 17 – 23

Not a banner week, but not terrible. On the two days I actually had off this week we drove three hours away for a quick little vacation to catch up with an old friend. I did what I could and I’m pretty happy with it.

Week 4: October 24 – 30

Slacking off again a bit this week. I’m having a very hard time finding time to shoot the bow. It rained on my days off and to be honest, this is the least important thing so it feels somewhat expendable.

Wrap Up

I lost some momentum toward the end of the month, but honestly it wasn’t a terrible one.
