40 by 40 – goal ideas

I started GoalGetters because I was really passionate about the power of goals and the transformation they helped me to achieve within my life.  I wanted to find a way to share this with everyone!  But somewhere along the way I’ve let my personal goals fall to the wayside.

And so I came up with the idea of 40 by 40.

40 goals I’d like to achieve in my 40th year.

I’ll blog throughout the process, so if you have any big (or not so big) goals or dreams that you’d like to achieve, why don’t you join me?

Emotional wellbeing is perhaps the most interlinked of all the dimensions of wellbeing (learn more about the dimensions of wellbeing in the Finding Balance article). If something is suffering in any of the dimensions, it has the potential to impact upon our emotional wellbeing. Similarly, if our emotional wellbeing suffers, it can impact on all the other dimensions. For this reason, it is incredibly important to look after your emotional wellbeing.

Emotional wellbeing

Our focus for April is emotional wellbeing, and this week’s article provides suggestions for goals to help you improve your emotional wellbeing.

Strong emotional wellbeing helps you to realise your full potential, cope with the stresses of life, work productively and make meaningful contributions to your community.

On the other hand, poor emotional wellbeing can have serious impacts on our health, including stress, depression, reduced immunity and other health risks.

Reflections on the Gain a Grand Challenge

financial goals


This is my total gain from the Gain a Grand challenge.  It’s not bad considering I got sick and didn’t do much towards it for half of the month!

However, it’s not as great as it looks either.  My four biggest savings came from:

  1. Shopping around for travel accommodation ($348.80)
  2. Cashing in rewards ($116.88)
  3. Waiting before buying ($100)
  4. Going without ($100)

With the exception of going without, these are not true savings. 

When shopping around for accommodation, I usually stick to my budget, using the savings to get more for my money.  That is, I spent $500 on $850 accommodation, rather than spending $500 on $500 accommodation.

The rewards that I cashed in had been accumulating before the month started, and the items that I waited before buying will now need to be bought.

Because the month got so busy, I also didn’t reconcile the savings against my budget.  It’s likely that I also had unplanned expenses to offset against this.  However, if I had been able to focus on this more, I would have had the opportunity to make more gains.

A general theme seems to be that the biggest savings came from the biggest expenses.  As such, this wouldn’t necessarily help if you’re already living on a tight budget.  However, it’s definitely worth re-visiting.  I can usually use one or two of these tips to help me through a particularly lean month.  For those of you who don’t generally budget or think about what you’re spending, there’s potential to gain far more than a grand.

The GoalGetters Gain a Grand challenge provides suggested daily activities to help you save or make money, helping you towards your financial goals.
