I set myself 11 goals for 2010. I’ve made some good progress on some and very little on others.
1. Learn to play 10 songs on the guitar
No progress. Like none. Must do better.
2. Shoot par
This isn’t really an expectation… more a dream. I’ve played 1 round of golf this year and I was terrible. Again, must do better.
3. Cycle more
I’ve been out on the bike a few times, most notably last week with the small boys where we went on a cycling adventure and got muddy. Great fun. I’d like to get to the point where I can cycle into Glasgow and back.
4. Complete masters dissertation
I’m consumed by this at the moment. 14 May is the primary deadline. I WILL have it done.
5. Develop the Something Beautiful Podcast
I have only contributed 1 interview this year (Gerry Hanan) but I’ve edited a couple of shows and I collated and formatted the Redemption Stories e-book. I’m really pleased with it and hope you have all downloaded it and donated to Charity: water too.
I think we might try and do another one later in the year. Ideas for a topic would be welcome.
6. Climb 10 Mountains
Not yet. That one is for summer.
7. Have better posture
The running is helping with this I think, as is being mindful. I’ve not had as many headaches from my shoulders and neck so that’s positive.
8. Read 20 books
Sporadic. I started well and read 2 in quick succession but not much since.
9. Take more photos
Fail. I think I’ve taken fewer photos since I decided to take more!
10. write a book
Does Redemption Stories count? If it does then I’ve done it. If not then I’m not even close.
11. Run 10 miles
This is the one I’ve done most about. I ran 10k the other day. That’s the first time I’ve run 10k since 2000. I ran it in 1:00:22. Gutted about the 22 seconds but pleased about the 10k. Onward! You can follow my progress with this on Nike +
How are you doing with your goals for 2010? And has setting them been helpful?
