September Goals

Hey everyone! This is the first month I’ve posted my goals.  It’s a bit intimidating to finally vocalize what I’m trying to do and to have to own up if I fail at anything.  I’ll follow-up at the end of the month and let you know if I met each goal, what obstacles I faced, and what I will do differently in the future.

  1. Save over 50% of my income.  It’s been a couple months since I was introduced to the idea of early retirement, so it will be interesting to see how easy/hard putting that much away will be.  Ideally it’ll be close to the 70% range, but I don’t want to shoot too high at first.
  2. Sell 2+ things on Craigslist/ebay.  I have quite a few items that I’ve been needing to get rid of, so even better if I can make a bit of money off it.  I’ve heard that items generally sell for a higher price on Craigslist, but ebay has a wider audience.
  3. Push-up challenge (30 every day).  I have a laughable lack of upper body strength.  This should help!
  4. Follow an Atkins diet.  This started today and I’m excited to see some results by the end of the month!  I don’t really need to lose weight, but this diet makes me feel better and gives me more energy, so bring on the bacon and steaks and eggs and chicken.
  5. Post at least 1 blog entry per week.  Is it weird to post on a blog about a goal related to said blog?  Oh well, it’s a goal!

What are your goals for September?  Anything you think I should add to the list?
