Every year, I look back at last years goals and try to assess what worked and what did not work for me. 2018 was an interesting year, bringing a considerable amount of stress and anxiety â€”Â and Iâ€™ve noticed a number of others have experienced the same, if not more in that regard.
Just looking at my goals from the previous year, I can see that Iâ€™ve accomplished a couple of things: my blogging year was pretty consistent and I did manage to launch and successfully fund a kickstarter, among other things. But some of the major projects I was hoping to complete (finish the novel, run a half marathon) did not reach completion.
During the second half of the year, Iâ€™ve especially been felt a sense of stagnation. I stopped running, attending few writing events, and in general felt that there was little progress on my personal projects.
But this feeling of stagnation is a bit of self deception, because if I consider things as a whole, then itâ€™s actually been phenomenal year for me in terms of writing and travel â€”Â a year I could and should be proud of. So, instead of worrying about what didnâ€™t work for me in the past year, here are some of the good things that have gone down in 2018.
