Midway through 2017: Stretch goals for rest of the year?

Posted By on Jun 1, 2017 | 0 comments


Goals

 

It’s now the month of June 2017. Which means we are officially at the half-way point of the year. I want you to ask yourself, “have I done everything I could to work towards what I wanted to accomplish this year?”

Be reasonable. You may have done really well in the respect that you’ve been following your goals and making measurable progress towards achieving target ambitions.

Or, if you’re like a lot of us, you feel like you could do better.

Well, fret no more! Luckily, every day is the start of a fresh new beginning and starting today you can take the initiative to make tomorrow excellent. I want to start off by first sharing what I want to accomplish in the next six months, personally.

These are stretch goals, which means they are, by design, slightly out of reach. If I want to accomplish even one it takes effort, time, and focus. So in the coming weeks, I’ll be posting about how each of these goals is coming along and what I’m doing to make sure I achieve them.

I want to lay down some stretch goals for the rest of 2017 in order to make sure I have a game plan to approach my desired accomplishments for the year.

 

  1. Travel somewhere new. I’ve already had an epic trip backpacking across Mexico. Time to hit up Japan.

  2. Do another marathon/race/challenge while being healthy. I’ve been having shoulder/knee pain troubles since October 2016. I’m ready to get back to normal.

  3. Record 50 podcast with awesome entrepreneurs and become a top 25 hit on iTunes.

  4. Launch 3 new products and sell online. 1) Has to be an app 2) Has to be a service 3) has to be a physical product.

  5. Get PMP Certified. I’ve been putting it off and it’s something I wanted to do since graduating college

  6. Get 1000 people on my mailing list. I want to start sharing awesome content and finding my core audience to share it with.

  7. Lead a project end to end at JH have it be something successful. I work at a large global financial firm and I want to work towards having a deep impact with one achievable, but difficult, project.

  8.  Enhance my dancing abilities and show new skills off ‘in the wild’. I plan on taking dancing lessons starting in July.

  9. Do 10 stand up/comedy shows. Possibly take an improv class. I want to get better at public speaking and the absolute summit, in my opinion, of excellence in public speaking is stand up comedy. At the same time, improv shows can be a ton of fun too!

  10. Get my programming proficiency up! HTML/CSS/JavaScript/PHP and SQL need to get to a more advanced level. I hope to have my GitHub running with 1 new project every month.

 

What are your top 10 or top 5 stretch goals for the rest of 2017? Share with me!
