2017 Recap, 2018 Goals
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
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
