Come At Me 2013
It’s a new year which means it’s time to refresh those goals of mine. Looking at last year’s outcomes, I can honestly say that I had a great year, despite emotional set backs. I hit 85% of my goals in 2012, so this year I am going for the big 100%.
The same rule of making S.M.A.R.T (that they be Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant Realistic, Timely, goals apply but this time around I am going to streamline my goals, making them simpler and easier for me to recall at any given moment.
1. Produce 1 piece of eSports content every day by (or until) Dec 31st, 2013
Last year I did a few eSports videos, articles and events, and this year I want to do more to contribute to the eSports community, whether its a blog post, a stream, or even some pictures of events - whatever. I want to do something every day that contributes in some way. This is to prepare me for my dream of being a producer of Starleague level content one day.
2.Practice martial arts once a week by (or until) Dec 31st, 2013
I took Iaido last year and was really committed to it but my move to Toronto disrupted classes and I let my practice fall to the wayside. Now that I am all settled here, it is time to take it seriously and start putting in some work into my training. I have also decided to take karate alongside my weapons training as a complement. (My weapons training mainly consiste of katana but the school I am looking to has few others including archery)
3. Budget money every month to bring down all non-student loan debt to 0 by Dec 31st 2013
in 2012, I wrangled my debt under control, and greatly reduced it using a solid budget. Tools like Mint.com made it a lot easier to predict my finances. I have a credit card and loan that I want to bring down to 0. neither are very large and definitely will be paid off by the end of the year.
4.Read 1 hour every day by Dec 2013
I love books, and I want to improve my general knowledge in the areas of my goals so I have queued up several books which to read and using goodreads to track my progress, the result should be 10 books completed by the end of the year.
These are my high impact goals, I have a few smaller ones but these goals are the ones that will have the most effect on my overall life. I hope by posting them people who read and know me will keep me on track.
Feel free to share your 2013 goals with me, I would love to hear them.
