2018 Goals

Time to kick off the new year with a new set of goals. Let’s kick the tires and light the fires!

  • Bot Up! - I have an idea for a messenger bot that I’ve been meaning to get out the door. Just need to find the time to code it up and ship it. It solves a need for me that I’m trying accomplish. And its something new and interesting that I’d like to learn more about.

  • Sleep - I’m going to track my sleep this year. Hoping that I can increase my amount of sleep. Right now I’m getting at best an average 6 hours per night. I’d like to see 6.5 or even 7 this year. I’ve had this goal before and pretty much failed miserably every time.

  • Drop the next 10 lbs - Over the past year, I’ve dropped close to 10 lbs without doing much more than running. I’d like to step up my game drop the next 10 lbs to get back to where I was 4 years ago before joining FB and traveling as much as I did.

  • Drink more water - This is one that I’d like to get over the coarse of the year. I definitely don’t drink enough water and have a Dr Pepper in the afternoon for some extra energy. Hoping that extra water will help both my weight loss goal and the help me feel better all around.

There they are, 4 goals for 2018. Let’s kick the shit out of the year.
