Every year I try to document out what I am trying to accomplish the next year. As one might expect I don't always get my goals, but it's nice to have a good outline. Here is my post from last year.
- Maintained and grew a Denver UX to 1951 members. The meetup did two events a month
- Got a great new job
- Gave talks on both design and development
- Wrote 4 blog posts for tymerry.com and 10 blog posts for TravelSaveandBeMerry. My goal was 12 blog posts, so beat it by two
- Volunteered at library teaching design and development.
- was able to do 3 pull-ups and bench 135, but then stopped exercising.
- Did several trips with only a small backpack, proving I can do some pretty minimalist travel
- Reached a state of "blank slate". Money, time, flexibility are no longer limiting factors in my life
- Created a bucket list
- Savings rate greater than 65%
- Passed the 1/2 way point to financial independence
- Didn't updated blogs to the latest version of ghost
- I set several goals that weren't really definable for success or failure
- Read 12 books
- Write 12 blog posts
- Get a solo chicken dinner in PUBG
- Define who I want to be, this will be shown in something like Zen of Python
- Be comfortable saying "I am a developer" (be able to create a CRUD app from scratch and have an example)
- Generate $1 from a business that isn't consulting/contracting
