Personal Goals for 2017

Personal Goals for 2017

This year, I decided to break up my goals. I’m focusing heavily on improving my health in 2017, as I’m getting closer to the age of 30 and would like to feel good about where I stand on that front. You can see my health goals for the year here.


I also thought it would be a good idea to have some non-health related goals. I’m calling these personal goals, but really they’re everything from business to relationship to personal finance. Without further ado:


  1. Write a blog every day
  2. Get featured on a major publication
  3. Improve my public speaking
  4. Do 26 one week challenges for 52 Week Blog
  5. Cook one new meal every week
  6. Read 20 books
  7. Get to 50% fluent in Duolingo Spanish
  8. Run 10km (okay, sort of health related)
  9. Buy a new car
  10. Travel out of continent

Most of these are pretty straightforward, but I’ll go into a bit of detail.

-I’d like to write one blog post every day right here on 52 Week Blog this year. Last year, I wrote every morning in my journal, but I’d like to move that experience over to the blog as well. I’ll continue to journal, but I think it would be good to also get in the habit of writing here more. Get ready for lots of content.

-As for getting featured on a major publication, I should elaborate. At Cave, I currently write for several publications including Adweek and The Hill. I’d like to get featured on another major publication – Entrepreneur, Inc, Fast Company, or something in that range of readership.

-To improve my public speaking, I’ll need to continue to attend Toast Masters classes and give speeches for Cave.

-I started 52 Week Blog as a place where I could document weekly challenges, and I’ll pick that up again this year. I’d like to do 26 challenges. My first challenge is going to be writing one blog post every day.

-I’m also going to start cooking one new meal every week with my girlfriend, Amanda. We both like to cook and I think it’s a good way to spend time together.

-Everything else is pretty much self-explanatory. I want to buy a Subaru and travel to Vietnam this year – but I could be swayed on both of those to another car/destination. We’ll see what the year holds.
