4 simple goals

I'm a little late to the game but I really like the idea of Elsie's 4 simple goals. I know I have my long list of long term goals on my blog and they are slowly being ticked off. But these are different, with the idea for them to be completed before the end of the year. Here are her rules:

1. Choose simple goals that will make your life richer and happier on a daily basis. Choose things you may not otherwise get done, but that are not difficult to accomplish.

2. Do not choose result oriented goals, choose activity oriented goals. for example.... instead of "lose 10 pounds", choose something like "eat fresh fruits and vegetables every day". get what i'm saying? positive actions instead of just the end result!

3. Choose goals that are personal that you believe will truly make your life richer just by doing them! They can be daily, weekly or one time experiences.

4. Choose a reward for each goal as it is accomplished! It can be a small or large reward.

5. Blog your goals, each one as you achieve it and a big post when they are all finished before the new year!

So my four goals are:

1. Have a regular date night! My and the man's lives are so busy that sometimes we barely see each other. I really want to say every week but that might be a bit ambitious. Definately once a fortnight even if it's just a coffee and a chat!

2. Be more creative! The list of things I want to make is getting longer but nothing has actually been made in far too long.

3. Say yes! Who knows what I'm missing out on every time I say no? This should make life more of an adventure...

4. Blog more often! I love blogging but somehow it just gets pushed to the bottom of the to do list all the time. And the bottom never quite gets reached!

What would you have as your simple goals? I think Elsie summed it up perfectly:
personal challenges to make your life more beautiful every day.
Wish me luck!
