Scoring My 2017 Goal Performance
Year 25 down…
Some context, this was what I wrote last year:
The main thing I learned is that I probably had too many initiatives to focus on and complete. I didn’t really finish much which either points out that I’m a little bit too zealous or it wasn’t something I really wanted.
Here were my goals with some commentary and review…
#1 Climb in Yosemite National Park
This one hurts a lot that I didn’t make it happen. I had more than one potential trip planned and they all fell through in happening. I’ll definitely be rolling this one forward to the new year to make sure it happens!
#2 Publish My First Book
Also a little frustrated with myself on this one, I have the content and just didn’t make space for it. I think it was too broad of a concept and I needed to dial in the scope a bit.
#3 Design and Sell A Physical Product
The product was designed and the prototype was created and we’ve been testing the product all year. Never sold a copy of it but we are planning on running a kickstarter for it this year!
#4 Crush Data Better
Definitely spent a lot of time on this one and will be moving this forward. I spent a good 25% of my time focusing on data and getting better at it, especially the data engineering side of things.
#5 Manage $1,000,000 / Month In Ad Spend
Super far off on this one, but we have made some substantial moves to make this a reality. The goal is really $1MM a day in ad spend.
#6 Summit Mt. Rainier
This is definitely in the works, but about 2 years out I’ve realized. Need to sign up and reserve a spot for it and start training a bit this year to be ready for it. Planning on a Spring of 2019 accomplishment.
#7 Go To South America
Really just wanted to go there because I’ve never been, however it didn’t make sense this year. Not sure if I’ll go in 2018 but I’m looking for a good opportunity to make it happen.
#8 Become A Better Leader
Spent a substantial amount of time in this area, most notably started going through Manger Tools and all they have to offer. I feel like I’ve gotten better so far but have a long way to go still!
I’ll be posting my goals for next year tomorrow, some of these may continue but the rest will happen when they happen. Wish me luck.
