When I wrote this post in 2017, I was in a different place. I am amazed to just re-read and see my personal and spiritual growth. This 2022 when you are planning your next year be sure that God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are at the forefront of your plans.
I reviewed my goals bi-monthly and I thought it would be fun to do an end-of-year goal review. Before I share my goals and progress, I wanted to share the tips that I feel helped me achieve my goals.
Goal setting is would absolutely nothing without a plan. Great you have a goal but how do you plan to get it done. How are you going to get from $1,000 a month to $2,000 a month, 180 pounds to 160 pounds, receptionist to account specialist? My point is going from a to b doesn’t happen simply because you wrote it down on a piece of paper. You have to sit down and brainstorm the actions you need to take in order to create your desired change.
For example, if you have a weight loss goal of 40 lbs. this year understanding your habits and trying different things can make or break your weight loss journey. If you’re an early riser on the weekend it would be best to try a 3-day workout plan (i.e., Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday). If you know your office usually has treats that you love or lunch delivered on Friday it’s likely best to make Friday a cheat day.

Putting Myself Out There
By taking the time to meet new people and being open to learning from others. I was able to adapt my plan and meet my blog traffic goal. Although there is a lot of information available online, in books, and from experts. Most people prefer to receive information from someone they know or trust.
Chellbee End of the Year Review
- Improve my relationship with God. This is a continuous journey but I’ve grown a lot this year. I am looking forward to the journey ahead.
- Prioritize spending time with my family. Naturally, I’m a hermit so we started doing Sunday Dinners. We eat, laugh, talk, and play spades together. Sunday dinners have become something I always look forward to and think about throughout my week.
- Publish my first book. The funny thing is I had not planned to release the Faith Journal. The truth is I was writing a completely different book but God had other plans. A month before the release I dropped one idea for His will and it has been a blessing.
- Grow my blog and brand. This has been an up-and-down battle. But I reach several of my longtime goals, readjusted my focus, and am thankful for the opportunities that have been afforded to me this year. More than anything else I’m thankful for every comment, like, tweet, and email from each one of you.

Still, wondering if you should write down your goals? Here are 3 reasons why you should:
- Create a road map for the year! Take notes of your lessons learned and roadblocks.
- Hold you accountable for taking control of your goals.
- Remove the barriers that cause you to repeatedly fall short of completing your goals. You can’t fix what you don’t know is broken.
Every day is what you make of it.
So, let’s make the commitment together that we’re going to make every day absolutely amazing. We’re giving everything we have to create the life that we want today.
