Here are a few goals I’m focusing on right now:
My GoalsUpdated April 2021
Make and release 5 products this year 🔧
I recently discovered the Indie Hackers community and was truly inspired by the many people around the world building cool things and making money on their own terms. I'm hoping that constraining my scope and time helps me get started. I don't want to stay a wantrepreneur forever!
Bench my body weight 🏋️♂️
I started taking weight lifting seriously this year. Benching my body weight is the next checkpoint on this long-term effort to fill more of my t-shirt.
Fix posture 🧘
I've had anterior pelvic tilt for a while but only identified it as a problem last year. Over the next few months, I want to focus on strengthening my core, hamstrings, and glutes to fix it (hopefully for good).
Start writing online ✍️
I want to use writing as a way to learn. I want to start by publishing 3 blog posts to help me make sense of things I want to understand better. I'm convinced that writing online is a very worthwhile investment of time and effort, both personally and professionally.
Self-directed learning - data science and no-code 📚
These are the two technical skills I want to build and Scott Young's book Ultralearning convinced me that a self-directed learning "project" is the move when it comes to learning and acquiring skills.
The ones tucked away for later:
