2010 Goals, Revisited

I usually make a list of goals for each new year. For example, last year I had goals to quit my job and start a new business, gather up 10 new clients before starting said business and work harder than I ever had before, among a few others. I achieved all of my goals last year. So, I’m working in 2010 on a new set that is very ambitious:

  1. Take more pictures (more on that, later)
  2. Start a recurring podcast series
  3. Drink more water (to wart off kidney stones)
  4. Start planning and writing a book (either a memoir of the crazy crap I find myself dealing with or about starting a business as a young entrepreneur.)
  5. Blog more
  6. Actively join a new meetup that I don’t have to be in charge of (see: Refresh)
  7. Gather 50 new clients or achieve an annual net salary of $60,000 – whichever is first
  8. Go to a beach (Northern Indiana is fine – I like to keep my vacation dollars in Indiana)
  9. Read more books (iPad might help)

I’m off to a good start on a lot of these. I’m re-evaluating my Project 365 (gets tough to take a picture in the same house every day). I am drinking more water and I’m being very aggressive and successful in my business marketing without actually spending a dime on advertising.

I’m also well into blogging more and have re-designed my website to serve as a blog and not a “website”. The Justify Studios site takes care of the business end of things for me now.

There’s another item in there to round-out the list, but it’s personal and I’ve redacted it.

He has worked for some of Indiana’s largest companies, state government, taught college-level courses, and about 1.1M people see his work every year.

You’ll probably see him around Indianapolis on a bicycle.

  1. Great post, Justin. Like you, I’m looking at ways of building my small consulting business. Still trying to find new ways of advertising without spending money. Having a hard time with that one.
