Goodbye, 2018

2018 was a good year. Not great, just good. I left a lot on the table and played it safer than I should have. It's always easier to talk about taking bigger risks than actually going and taking those risks.

I'm not one for "New Year's Resolutions." They only last a few days, anyway. I prefer setting goals for the year and working toward them. Here are a few goals for 2019–personal and professional:

  1. (5 am) wake up every day

  2. Read 52 books in 2019

  3. Write a post every day

  4. Sketch 5-6x a week

  5. 5,000,000 views monthly on my YouTube channel

  6. Start a photography YouTube channel

  7. Be consistent weekly with my podcast

  8. Create more impressive videos, even if that means creating less of them.

  9. Create 2x-5x courses/products for my company.

  10. Hit 1.5 million YouTube subscribers

  11. Hit 100k followers on Instagram

  12. Be more personal on all social media (show my face and get involved more)

  13. Achieve more than 3x of these goals this year.

I made a list at the beginning of 2018 and I achieved 1 of the ten goals I outlined. The main goal will be achieving more than ONE of these goals this time around.
