I should probably do a little 2014 wrap up before listing out goals for the new year. It was probably the worst year ever, culminating in a life changing event that left me fundamentally shell-shocked. I will write about it at some point, but not now.
The year started off promising. I got my MVP/Promo video created and was really feeling good about a lot of things in life and with where I was going. I took a new role at work, had a nice trip to Ireland and shortly thereafter, things started heading downhill. In July we took an amazing vacation to Belize and things were looking like they might actually turn a corner and get better. I was checking email in Belize and could tell that as soon as I got home, everything would start to suck, and sure enough it did. I am positive that work led to most of my misery, as the stress destroyed everything in me, that is me. I started working 80 hour weeks, traveling to BOS and generally feeling dreadful about everything. Even with a ton of support all around me, the year, my outlook on life, and my sanity spiraled downward culminating in the tumultuous Q4.
So with that I am using the new year as an arbitrary fresh start. I think I missed last year but I am going to start to list out my goals each year. Here we go….
- Fix stuff and finish projects
- Blog 50x
- Surf 5x
- Hike at least half of the 4Ks in NH
- Hike Long’s peak
- Get involved in TAG
- Ski 20x
- Join a hat league
- Finish tailgate box
- Build a camping rig for my truck
- 8 miles in 1hr

- Meet the SeAL standards
- 165 lbs
- Murph in 60 mins
- Pitch idea at work. New role
- Small model working prototype TMZ
- Acadia trip with girls
- Hug the girls more

Yes that is an ambitious list. But I am tired of not getting things done. So I will set my goals high and see what the tide brings in.
