My Self-Improvement Summer Goals

I made a list of everything I want to do/change this summer. A change of the seasons is a perfect time for change, especially when there will be a break where I won’t be around as many people. This form of going into this  self-focused isolation “monk mode”, which the same is very suitable.

I’m not sure what to think of what the process will be like. But I will keep updates of how this will go. As long as I have self-discipline and don’t deny that I can actually change, this life do-over should be completed by the time my senior year of college rolls around.

Here is a list of everything I will change starting today.

  1. This is great. I think by listing out your priorities in step 1, you are well on your way. And step 3, the exercise will definitely help you as well as you will be able to have a clear mind. Find the positives in life and keep moving forward! If you have not done so, I would also recommend trying some sort of meditation to keep your mind clear and focused. Best of luck!
