Eighteen Before 2018

Yesterday while cruising through my Instagram feed, I happened upon a post by Lisa Jacobs (@iamlisajacobs) about not waiting for 2018 to start and making and completing 18 goals before 2018. It’s just what I needed to refocus and get back toward what I’d still like to accomplish in 2017.

 And the Eighteen Are…

My eighteen are founded on Level 10 goals , which are based on the concepts outlined in Hal Elrod’s The Miracle Morning. And with today being the 18th of August, which also happens the anniversary of Ryder Carroll launching bulletjournal.com, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to map out my Eighteen Before 2018.
