December goals.

Who writes goals a month before the New Year?

Apparently a lot of people.

But I get it – it’s a satisfying feeling to start off a new year knowing you’ve accomplished exactly as you wanted the past month rather than hoping you’d accomplish alllll these things for the next year.

(We all know how well those New Year’s Resolutions stick.)

So here it is, my December goals:

  • Finish Yellow by Frank Wu.
  • Finish Black Swan by Nassim Nicholas Taleb.
  • Do a 6 mile run once a week.
  • Picture book.

I used to be a big fan of the under-promise, overachieve outlook, but then I realized that by holding myself to lower standards, it was making me under-perform.

Let’s get out of the rut for 2016, but until then, I have December to think about.

Day 8: Current Goals

I’m midway through winter break!

Here are a few things I would like to get done soon,

and a few things I would like to do before the semester is over.

  • Finish Screwtape Letters by C.S. Lewis & read one more book over the course of the semester.
  • Update my music library. I have favorite songs all over SoundCloud, Spotify, Pandora – one goal is to consolidate it all into physical files on my laptop.
  • Blog consistently! Last year my blogging turned pathetic – since I don’t take pictures, my blogs are the best documentations of my life. Stress is no excuse to forget moments.
  • Checking off the bucket list. There are places to explore, things to do, people to date (just kidding).
  • Figure out the next step: should I move to SF or not?
