Goals 2015

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
  • <20 min 5k
  • 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
  • Find peace

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.
