Do you set fun goals?
I love setting goals in general, but over the past few years, it’s been a delightful part of my end of year planning to choose one or two goals that are just purely for fun.
In 2020, my fun goal was to try out FabFitFun for a year (this one was SO thrilling for me – I loved getting a quarterly box of fun, useful and new products right on my doorstep. Worth every penny for me).
Setting Fun Goals
One of the things I love about setting fun goals is that it really gives you something to look forward to during the year.
Also, if you’re someone like me who gravitates toward practicality and responsibility, a fun goal is a great way for me to give myself permission to do something entirely for my own enjoyment.
Plus, it’s just a delight to check it off that goal, especially if you don’t complete all your other goals.
Here are some other ideas for fun goals:
(Thanks to my Instagram readers for so many of these great suggestions!)
- Grow an herb in your kitchen window
- Visit 2 new-to-you local restaurants
