Hey guys. I hope you all had a wonderful time with your families for the holidays.
2017 is approaching and it’s that time of the year when you sit back and think about how it all went down. Did you reach your goals? Where did you fail? For me, it was a roller-coaster full of ups and downs. I quit my job and started my own company - something I didn’t think of at the beginning of the year. I also let myself down in multiple occasions, but I like to think I had a lot to learn.
I recently heard about Mark Zuckenberg’s yearly challanges and I admire his dedication and power of will - this year he built a home AI by himself. Called it Jarvis and had Morgan Freeman to voice it - how cool is that?
For the year to come, I decided to read a book every two weeks and pick up swimming again for at least 3 times / week.
I was an avid reader when I was younger but as I grew up, I slowly drifted away and kept making excuses. I realised I didn’t read nearly as much as I wanted to this year, so this will be my main objective. Regarding swimming, I found out that it’s the best way for me to keep in shape. I also was a waterpolo player… I find it casual swimming very meditative. I lost almost 20 kilograms in 2015 only to gain about 10 kilograms in 2016 because I wasn’t paying too much attention to my health. So, yeah, I need to focus on it more this year.
I like to think that focusing on smart and good objectives like those will make bad habits drift away by themselves.
How about you guys? What are your goals for 2017?
