BRAVE actions for 2014

The following goals were introduced in this blog entry, and I’ll keep you updated on them below. I’m still trying to figure out the best way to post updates so bear with me.

At work

  • document my value as an employee and communicate it clearly during my performance appraisal Deadline: February 28, 2014
  • stop getting so nervous when speaking during meetings—it shows in my voice and after 8+ years with the same employer I should be able to speak confidently—my boss always has to remind me to breathe! Deadline: June 30, 2014
  • set better boundaries with respect to my workload, and with social interactions with colleagues Deadline: February 15, 2014

With friends

  • let fading friendships go or prioritize them by bringing it up with the friend—stop feeling bad about the state of a friendship because it takes two to make it work (or not) Deadline: June 30, 2014
  • say no to activities or tasks that I really don’t want to do Deadline: Ongoing
  • expand my friendships to include at least two people whose lives are more similar to mine Deadline: June 30, 2014

In love

  • tell six family members and friends that I’m looking for love Deadline: February 14, 2014 *wink*

Other areas

  • go out to one social event, preferably one that strangers will also attend, monthly Deadline: Ongoing
  • go out for dinner alone every other month Deadline: Ongoing
  • travel internationally at least once more alone (even though I know I felt lonely the last time); it could be my last opportunity for a solo trip for a while Deadline: December 31, 2014
  • admit that even though I want to learn how to paint, it would be more efficient to hire someone to paint (parts of?) my house—and do it! Deadline: March 31, 2014
