It has been exactly 9 months since I outlined my goals for 2010. Time to review my progress!
- Hold breath for at least 3 minutes.
- Be able to fall into a push up from standing position.
- 1 mile in under 5:30.
- Run a half-marathon.
- 200 squats in a row.
- 25 pull-ups in a row.
- Cycle 100 miles in one day.
- Be able to hold an L-position for 30 seconds.
*Hmm. With only three months left, I’ll have to hustle to complete the rest of these goals. Trying to cycle 100+ miles over the weekend. Fingers crossed.
- Redesign and rethink my vision as a blogger.
- Write at least 15 guest posts.
- Write at least 20 reviews.
- Get at least 500 subscribers.
- Post consistently, at least once a week on Tuesdays.
- Develop a cost-of-traveling blog widget.
- Redesign and find a cheaper host.
- Sell at least 5 prints.
- Get at least 50 subscribers.
*The 9 to 5 Alternative v2.0 is underway. At the beginning of the year, I was keen on redefining my online presence. Most of my posts have been travel reports, and while it’s fun to write about the world, I needed a more sustainable, fulfilling and community-enriching purpose. Enter my new About page, which explains where this blog is heading. This shift will become more apparent on January 1, 2011, when I will publish a whopping post on goal-setting. Through calculated goal-setting, I believe we can all live more eclectic and fulfilling lives.
A note on the redesign–for many reasons, I decided not to pursue the face-lift that many of you may have noticed over the last several weeks. Sticking with this layout for a while!
*Nepal Prints no longer exists. Since I still own the domain name, the site redirects back here. Soon I’ll be adding a photography/video page within this site to supplement my travel reports.
- Put together a long-term goals/bucket list.
- Buy a keyboard.
- Hike the Presidential Traverse in New Hampshire’s White Mountains.
- Make at least $500 in supplemental income.
- Reread I Will Teach You To Be Rich and restructure and optimize my finances.
- Track all my expenses. To the penny.
- Finish the 21-day No-Complaint Experiment
- Score at least $15,000 on Jeopardy! using the Coryat method.
- Read at least 15 more books on the Personal MBA reading list.
- Score at least a 700 on a practice GMAT and then take the real thing.
*Need to read 5 more books on the Personal MBA list.
