Happy Thursday Watchers!
What are your goals for 2019? Or maybe I should say, what is your goal?
I’ve been thinking about goals a lot lately, like everyone else right? It’s that time of year after all. I enjoy setting ambitious goals for myself, and typically set lots of them. But I rarely do a good job of keeping up with them throughout the year.
So this year, inspired by the goal setting guide below and this week’s Krit newsletter, I’m going to try something new. I’m going to pair my list down to 1 goal per quarter for each part of my life. One for my time at work, and one for my time at home.
Here’s the list of all my goal ideas:
  • Grow Krit profits by 100%
  • Launch an info-product
  • Launch a podcast
  • Write every day
  • Write a children’s story
  • Knock out the most important task of the day as soon as you finish getting water before checking anything
  • Volunteer once per week
  • Wake up at 5 am
  • Write 500 words every day
  • Grow YouTube channel to 500 subscribers
  • Host a dinner
  • Launch Startup Watching website
  • Increase Startup Watching engagement
  • Host a micro conf
  • Travel to a new country
  • Do 1 thing per week to grow Startup Watching subscribers
  • Go camping in a new national park
  • Invest in therapy
  • Get really good at Madden (to increase football knowledge)
  • Go on a trip with my sister
  • Build something with my hands
  • Meditate
  • Work out 12 times per month
  • Read 1 book per month
  • Practice forgiveness
Out of all of those, I’m going to pick just one to focus on for each category each quarter. I’ll update you all here with how it goes…
For Q1 my two goals are:
At work
  • Write 500 words every day as soon as I get to the office before checking twitter
At home
  • Do 1 thing per week to grow Startup Watching subscribers
What are your goals heading into the new year?
Cheers from Charleston ✌️
