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.
