My 2014 Goals

I don’t normally write publicly what my goals for each year are but decided it might help me hit more of them if folks knew them. I’m pretty good at hitting my annual goals (typical strike rate of about 80%) so curious to see if I can improve on that by sharing them.

In no particular order…

Get married

In 2013 I got engaged to the perfect woman for me. I’m not a huge fan of being engaged for a long time so looking at getting married this year.

12 high quality blog posts here

This isn’t one of them 🙂 I actually quite enjoy writing. When I do it consistently I get better at it too! About one solid post a month seems like an achievable goal (history would strongly disagree with me though ;)).

Double my investment portfolio value

This excludes my holdings in my companies & private company investments. I enjoy dabbling in the share market and have done so since my mid teens. I haven’t normally had a goal beyond ‘don’t lose money’, so we’ll see how it goes this year. This excludes new investment, just double the sum currently invested.

Complete the round-the-lake cycle race

My 2013 fitness goal was to do a half marathon and I did that (also doing it again this year). This year I needed a new challenge physically so a 160km cycle race seems like a goer. I used to love cycling but haven’t done any in about a decade. Time to buy a new bike and nail it. Anyone keen to join me?

Get my weight under 80kg

Does anyone ever not have a weight goal for each year? I’m only 4Kg off this but it would be a nice psychological win to get out of the 80s.

2,500 twitter followers

Currently at 1,085. If you like business, investing and technology you could help me out 🙂

Two business goals

I have two business goals that I’ll be keeping under wraps for now. I’ll report on them at the end or during the year when they’re hit.

They’re my goals for 2014. What are some of yours?
