18 for 2018 | My Goals



2018 is in full flow now, and it's time to consider some goals that I want to achieve before 2019 arrives. There will be some similarities to my New Years Resolutions post as some of the goals are duplicates of resolutions.

Events

I want to get to:
Blogging
  • Reinvent ‘the week that was’ to be ‘What I've been Up To’ - One of the reason for starting to blog was to record what I'd been up to, but having put my 'week that was' posts on hold, I've missed them. So I'm going to do a monthly 'What I've Been Up To' post.
  • Be more active in the blogging community - Reading and commenting on Dad Blogs each week.
  • Create a media kit for my blog - since starting to blog, I've been meaning to create a media kit to be shared with anyone that may want to work with me.
  • Improve my consistency in sharing posts across all my social media - last year I got better at sharing on Facebook and Twitter, but I need to start using Instagram more.
Travel
  • Visit Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch - I saw it on the television over Christmas and now I've got a need to visit. Luckily I've got some family that live nearby so it won't be a long journey just to get a photo by a sign, we'll pop by and see them too.
  • Get away for a city retreat as a four - We'll probably head to Bristol for the Gromit Unleashed 2 trail, but to get away for a night or two would be nice.
  • Have a family day out each month - particularly since our son was born, I've become developed itchy feet and I've wanted to get out more, so each month I want to have a family day out.
Life
  • Support Nikki as she progresses through her pregnancy and as we both try to adjust to having two children in our lives - Although we've been through it all once before, we only had to concentrate on our son... this time round there will be two of them competing for our attention with very different needs.
  • Watch the top 10 movies listed on IMDBs top 250 movies list - I still haven't seen most of the top rated films, so I want to start by watching the top 10 films. The two biggest hurdles to over come will be sourcing the films and finding time to watch them.
  • Watch 'Avengers: Infinity War' [2018] in IMAX - Despite having an IMAX cinema just up the road, I've still not seen a film in IMAX, so I want to make 'Avengers: Infinity War' my first (you never forget your first...).
  • Get promoted at work - fairly self explanatory, but I'm at the stage of my career where I'm ready to progress.
  • Be more adventurous when visiting restaurants - I tend to stick to a handful of meals, but in 2018 I want to branch out.
Thank you to Kirsty from Life With Boys for tagging me in the '18 for 2018', you can read her goals here. As I'm a bit late getting round to publishing this I'm not going to tag anyone, but if you fancy giving it a go leave a link to your post in the comments below as I'd love to have a read!
