2013 Goals

For the past year I’ve kept to a similar goal structure.  I develop and consider my personal and professional goals for each upcoming month, year and 5 years.  I always put a completion date for each goal, and am constantly updating and revising the list as the goals become crystallized.   As January is the season of resolution sharing, I thought I’d make my monthly, yearly, and 5 year goals public.   Some of these goals I’m super excited by, and some are a little embarrassing, but I wanted to include everything, warts and all.  I also always add actionable tasks to help me accomplish the specific goal – which I’ve left off on a few of my goals for boredom sake!
