1. What was your goal?
My goal was to attempt to stop swearing so much. In recent weeks it has come to my attention that I have a problem, so this was my attempt to fix that.
2. Did you achieve it? How or how not?
Sadly I was not successful with my goal, although I am not that heartbroken over it. Over these past weeks I’d like to think that I have improved this so called “problem” but if anything I think it escalated. The first couple of days i was doing pretty well, but then I got mad at my sister for existing and my attempt at this new and improved me was no more.
3. What was the most challenging part of achieving your goal?
I would say that the most challenging part of this experience was my sister, she makes it very hard to be polite. This goal was challenging because I had to start thinking about what I was going to say before I said it, when I’m usually just waiting to hear what I say.
4. What would you do differently next time?
I probably wasn’t as committed to the cause as I should have been, not gonna lie. Next time if I ever try to attempt this goal again I think I would try to censor myself a lot more and actually think before I speak.
5. Will you continue with this type of goal? If you do, explain what you will do. If not, explain why you are satisfied with where you are at.
I think for right now I bookmark this experiment for now, because this is only a problem around my friend and my sister, I haven’t been called out on it yet so hopefully we will keep it that way.
