2022 Mission

For 12 years or so I have sat down to map out my year. From personal goals to professional I have found that writing out the things I want to accomplish in a year publicly helps me stick to my plan. It also is nice to reflect on where I was a year ago.

Often, I find that my areas of focus change and it’s fun to look back and see what was important to me the prior year and what is important to me now.

2021 was a good year for me. I exceeded my own expectations in a few areas and had some major wins personally and professionally. More importantly, I saw myself change in good ways that weren’t necessarily part of the plan. In this new year, I am hoping for more growth in all areas. But first, let’s recap 2021.

2021 Recap

Self Improvement

Improve sleeping habits Calm app definitely helps me get to sleep faster, now I just need to get in bed earlier.
