Clearly I’m a bit behind this year with my goals. These are usually posted on 1⁄1 but this year, things are different. Different priorities, different timelines, different expectations, still trying to be a better version of myself. So here it is, time to write down the goals and put a plan in action to make it happen! My 2017 Goals! Solve a Rubik’s Cube in under 3 minutes – This one may seem silly and it very much is.
I don’t think I’ve ever done this poorly on my yearly goals. But I have a good reason, a couple of them actually. Please refer back to The Ochos and you’ll fully understand. But…to stay consistent, let’s run through them and see how poorly I did. Learn Swift – FAIL I did some tutorials and the playground activity from the developer portal. I do like what I’ve seen in swift so far.
As in past years, I’m being open and honest about my goals for the year. Keeping yourself accountable is a big part of success so the more people that see this can also call me on excuses as they come up. I’ve never really hit 100% of my goals and I think that’s ok. Goals are meant to stretch you and make you work really hard for something. This makes the reward all the sweeter.
Another year and its time to check out the score card on the 2015 goals. This is going to be a rough one folks. Sleep Goal 7 hours. Actual: 6.5 Grade: C Running Goal: a distance race. Actual: None Grade: F Code / Write / Ship! Goal: Ship something Actual: None Grade: F Make something with my hands Goal: Make something Actual: Built a few shelves, added on to the raised garden, created a retaining wall / planting area
Last year was a bit interesting for me with starting a new job so I made no public goals. Sure I had a lot of work related goals that I accomplished. But wanted to keep the personal life on the down low and just ride out the year. It was a year filled with a lot of ups and downs but I’m very grateful to be coming through with good health and a happy life.
