2017 Personal Goals

Personal Goals for 2017

  • Health & Fitness
  • Personal Time
  • Vlogging
  • Videography

Health and fitness is my priority 1 for 2017, I have slacked off, not looking after myself, which has lead me to a little burnout, which in turn has made me lose motivation to stay fit and active as well spending next to no time in the water. Something I used to love to do.

2017 is the year that I start running again on an at least semi regular basis.
I will also be making sure I get in the water more as well, back to bodyboarding a few times a week!

If I can stick to the above, my fitness and health should start to take a turn for the better.

In addition to my health, I am focusing on eating better and standing up for most of the duration of my working hours thanks to a stand up desk that my wife got me for my 30th birthday. It really has made a huge difference already, at least productivity wise that I have noticed so far.

Personal time is another high priority for me, making sure I spend less time on the computer and more time disconnected from the internet, with friends and family.
This means more camping and more time off through the year. I am lucky to work for a company that allows for 4 weeks a year of paid leave, so I intend to use that time wisely where and when I can.

Vlogging and videography are 2 new things I want to look into doing in 2017, to document what I do and touch on some more creative areas on top of my love for photography. It seems like a progression of some sorts.

I feel my passion for photography growing, and wanting to move into video more and more. The question is, do I leave my still photography behind, by selling my gear to start building gear for video?


In regards to my personal goals, these are ones that I need to achieve and make a reality. I have had a focus on my professional life, my work, instead of myself, my family and friends.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
