My goals for 2008

Posted on Friday, February 1, 2008 in General

It’s February 1st 2008 and this is going to serve as my list of yearly goals. I’m going to review these periodically throughout the year, and have a followup next February.

  1. Finish this blog post
  2. Be the best father and husband I can be
  3. “Ship” 10 projects
    • 1+ on Amazon’s cloud
    • 1+ with a new-to-me language (Smalltalk, Io, Python, etc)
  4. Drop 20lbs of fat

    Having a few *focused* (yet personal value-aligned) goals should really help. Make sure to remind yourself of them daily and weigh potential tasks against these values statements.

    My problem (and I imagine you suffer as well) is that I usually have way too many thoughts/ideas of things to work on. I also have a tendency to want to help others. This is a greatest weakness/greatest strength kind of thing.

    Anyhow, I have similar goals to yours and I wish you a productive 2008.

    Whaha, the first point is so true! I’m a bit of a fanatic blogger myself and I always have trouble to finish the post a started. I think it is because of the fact that i’m easily distracted…

    Great looking blog btw!
