Wow...another year? The Year of the Sheep has been extremely good to me. I worked my butt off and saw all of my efforts manifest into proud achievements and crazy new adventures. It almost sad to say goodbye to another year, but I'm hoping for more great things with 2016.
Next week will usher in the Year of the Monkey and I'm bringing back my Chinese New Year Resolutions. To keep things really simple and focused, I only have three goals.
For a variety of reasons and factors, I feel as though is it really now or never with Oz. The time is now and I need to get myself back to the land of vegemite and Tim Tams.
#2: Save More
Probably not a good goal to have in mind when #1 is also a goal within the same year. I've been reading a lot about and getting really inspired by the minimalism/essentialism/frugal movement. Whatever you call it, I don't need as much stuff as I have. It's time to look at my budget and really think about putting my $$$ into smarter vehicles aside from clothes and shoes.
#3: Work SmarterSince T4s are filling up my desk space, I made how much last year?!? Yeh, I worked hard, but this came at the sacrifice of my personal time with friends and family. Is all that extra $$$ worth it? No, I need to work better (be more productive and efficient). It comes down to cutting off the excess to focus on the essentials. The money is nice, but I am going to stop trading in my youth and freedom for it.
