Holy cow, you guys. 2016 was a whirlwind. I made some mistakes, learned a lot, lost my mom, traveled, started a new job, and did a million things in between.
It was a hard year.
As I look back at my post at the beginning of the year Making 2016 Great I realize how much I’ve changed in the last year.
My first goal? Create More.
How’d I do? Well, I did revamp my blog entirely, and publish a bunch of blog posts, but I did slack on my Youtube Channel.
In all fairness, making videos takes a lot more time and effort than blogging, and with the amount of crazy bull I had going on this summer, I simply couldn’t keep up.
But, here are some of my favorite creations from this year:
My second goal for the year?
How’d I do? Check.
In 2016, I moved from San Antonio to Ohio, explored NYC, Minneapolis, Des Moines, Buffalo, Toledo and Cleveland. I’d like to add a lot more cities to that list in 2017, but I think I’m off to a good start.
Here’s a gut-wrenching goal: Laugh More.
Something mom always did. I didn’t make this goal as I would have liked. Mom’s passing made it really hard to stay positive, and I think I’m still recovering from everything.
My last goal?
Create Better Work.
Whoa, way to set a vague standard for myself that I can’t measure. I’d like to say I did create better work this year than last year, but who’s to judge? I just keep practicing and creating stuff I like; and that is all I can do.
As I go into 2017
I’m setting some new goals for myself. And they are all measurable goals that I’m hoping I can look back on in a year and determine how I did.
- Travel Internationally (to anywhere)
- Post at least 24 articles on my blog.
- Post at least 30 youtube videos.
- Learn two new skills.
Simple? Yeah, I think so. What are your goals for 2017? Leave a comment below!
