8) Open an Investment Account

Along with Goal 1 this is some financial housekeeping to push me closer to my early retirement goals.

Action Steps to reach my Goal:

  1. Do research to choose where to invest.
  2. Do research to choose what to invest in.
  3. Decide what amount of money and how frequently to invest.
  4. Open the account and set up automatic deposits.

9) Work toward a 5am Wakeup

This is the first step in many to improve my fitness.   I know from past experience that the only way I’ll fit exercise into my day is to do it in the morning.  The problem is, I HATE mornings.  I really struggle to get up early.  My goal is to slowly push my wakeup time earlier and earlier until I’m waking no later than 5:15.  At first I will use this time to make myself better breakfasts and just not have to rush so much in the mornings.  But once it’s early enough, I will implement some sort of exercise.

10) Be active at least 3 times per week.

Are we seeing a theme with number 9?

Action steps to achieve this goal:

  1. Leave a pair of sneakers at the office so that I can walk during lunch or breaks when my workload allows.
  2. Plan family activities that are more active. (Hikes, walks, swimming, yoga with my daughter, etc)
  3. Schedule long dog walks into my week.
  4. Try to start off Saturdays with lifting weights, yoga, etc.
  5. Schedule these activities on my planner and make them a priority!

 

Anyone else trying to kick the couch potato habit?
