Well, 2010 is drawing to a close, and now we are all staring down the barrel of 2011. What are you hoping to accomplish next year? Lose weight? Get your finances in shape? Travel more? We all have something that we want to do (or do better). If you’re interested in what I tried in 2010 (and how it went, here, and check back tomorrow). Well, everyone around the internetz has been posing up 2011 goals for accountability and such, so I figured I’d give them some love here. Maybe they have a goal that you do, and you can become buddies for the year!
Financial Samurai has a great post about what he wants to do in 2011. For the life of me, I cant figure this guy out! He makes more online than I do in a year (or damn near), turns down a million dollar a year job, and still is trying to wring an extra 90 hours of his sleep schedule a month to do more stuff! Keep working hard, Sam.
Sandy at Yes! I am Cheap wants to build an emergency fund in 2011.
Mike at Saving Money Today wants to lose 15 lbs, give up coke (the horror!!!), get out of debt and increase his online income
Jesse at PF Firewall wants to tie up loose ends. I feel him on this, I feel like/know I’ve got too much stuff thisclose to being done and I just need to knock it out. It will help in the long run (or something like that).
Red Set a Debt goal for the year. It sounds like she’s being pretty ambitious, but if you only spend $10 a month, I think you can do quite a few things. I’ve got one set for myself as well, and you’ll have to come back tomorrow to figure out what exactly it is!
Kay Lynn (bucksome boomer) wants to become debt free in 2011. I think thats a great goal (and one I unfortunately wont reach) but she talks about this on couple money. Good luck, kay lynn.
Small biz big dreams suggests that you make some Anti New Years Resolutions for 2011. While he’s got a great name, I’m not too sure exactly what these are – could just be semantics. The author makes a good point about most new years resolutions expecting to fail, though. That’s no way to look at something.
Flexo at Consumerism Commentary put up his goals as well. He’s got 7 things he wants to do, and they all sound very do able for him. Increase his exercising, save for retirement, and more. Look for him to really hit it big this year now that he works for himself. He’s also looking at getting into photography. (If you’re serious flexo, I could show you around my state…there’s great stuff here)
ND Chics Sense has her goals up as well. No long explanation, but it doesnt matter if she has success this year!
Well Heeled Shares her 2011 Goals at Lending Tree. For Her, the year is about fun! Taking some trips, continuing to work out are all on her priority list. She’s also got goals posted from Crystal at BFS (volunteer at a local charity), Amanda at Frugal Confessions (take more yoga), Evan at My Journey to Millions (Lose Weight), and Jacob of My Personal Finance Journey (Travel to Grand Canyon).
Little Miss Moneybags has a preview post for her resolutions. Go back and check when she puts up the full thing!
Amber at Blonde and Balanced has a long (and distinguished) list of goals for 2011! More writing, more working out, better scheduling.
Little House put some of her 2011 goals up. On deck for her is saving more moo-lah. Good Luck Little House!
