My Goal for the week of 6/10/19

I think setting goals is really important, so I’m going to bring it up again today! And probably next week and the week after that. There’s a lot you can learn about self-defense, firearms, and carrying here. But I think learning how to set and be accountable for your goals can help you in all aspects of your life.

So I’m challenging all of you AGAIN to start setting weekly goals and post them here. Writing them down will make them more real and help me check in with you later this week!

Make it a SMART goal:
S pecific
M easurable
A chievable
R elevant
T ime-bound (we’ll use one week)

What’s your goal for this week?

My goals for the week are:

  1. Get the oil in my car changed (I won’t say how overdue that is!)
  2. Get caught up on assigning badges in the Community
  3. Send my dad’s Father’s Day Card so it’s on time for once!
  4. Get the home maintenance scheduled

Like you see from my goals, they don’t have to be difficult to achieve, but they are things I have to get done!

Buy a suit and tie. I got voted in as a Deacon at church, and need to dress the part for ordination and other such occasions. Apparently, Men’s fashion in my area doesn’t understand Big and Tall.

Next 2 weeks on vacation so goals are gonna be pretty irrelevant. I normally work over 100 a week so just gonna unplug and enjoy the family.

Can you make that measurable, @Brian1? Maybe exercise 30 min 3 times a week? Or go for a 3 mile walk every day?

6 hours? 8 hours? 4.5 hours? Making it a solid number should help. :slight_smile:

@45IPAC - congratulations on the Deacon at church! Have fun shopping.

@JKetchem - congratulations to the wife on her new job! Can you give your goals some solid numbers or other measurements? Straighten the house - dust, and vacuum every room, do the dishes and wipe down the counters and sink every night? Measurable goals make it easier to achieve results.

I do, but In interest of brevity I just made it inclusive as “house stuff” lol

Wed. I have a training from Convention of States for volunteering with them.
Thus. Going with my wife to see the Israeli Scots perform. They come to the
Phoenix, Arizona area every year. And for 16 to 18 year old they’re real
good.
Fri. I’m going to my gun club to finish sighting in my .22 1911 that I put a Red
Dot sight on and to do some practice with a few of my other guns.

I think that’s going to be the tricky part. I want to put something like that on paper, so I guess the goal would be… set up a measurable exercise regimen that’s doesnt include a leg day.

And for the sake of this forum. There was a Glock 19 and 2 extra mags in bag right behind us. My father and I were the only ones knowing that. As much as I’m enjoying this vacation. I’m still carrying. Lol
