Re: Redheads goals

That's a pretty awesome list @redhead well done! Good building blocks in there, kind of small mid and large goals. What would you say is the most exciting goal for you personally in that list?


Is there a way you can screengrab this and keep it in your camera roll for when you're feeling a bit lost etc? Well done, it's so good.

Re: Redheads goals

@Bree-RO I wrote it on my notes section of my phone so I got a copy.

Most exciting (and prob most difficult) is name change stuff. I put paperwork in 10days ago so it's just waiting approval then actually changing everything which is going to be a pain but definitely worth it.

Re: Redheads goals

These are some super amazing goals @redhead i think it's particularly amazing and courageous that you are putting in for a name change. That's a big and exciting step!


What's next with these goals? How are you going to work towards them and how can we all help?

Re: Redheads goals

Hey @redhead,

You are really courageous to decide on some really great goals and share them with us. 

I find that writing goals down can be really helpful and make them seem more real.

I am currently in my Psych honours and my goal is to get into masters, so I can relate to the difficulty there!! If you have any questions about that part of your goal, let me know and I would be happy to help Smiley Happy

Re: Redheads goals

These are all so good @redhead! On the point of feeling unsure aboutt you goal to get more stable, do you think it would help to turn it into a SMART goal (something specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and timely)? I find that sometimes helps for me if I get stuck.


Particularly loving the "learn self love too" part of the last goal Smiley Happy

Re: Redheads goals

Hi @redhead!

It's such a great idea to think about short term and long-term goals! 

Changing your name sounds like it will be an exciting new chapter for you Smiley Happy 

I'm also studying psychology! Good luck with that Smiley Happy It's going to be an amazing accomplishment to have a psych degree under your belt! 



Re: Redheads goals

Update on one of my goals. I finally have an appointment with my new therapist. I'll be seeing her in 3 weeks Smiley Happy
