2016 Goals

Like a lot of people, I try to set some goals / resolutions at the beginning of the year. I’ve never shared my list before, but I’m curious to see if the added transparency gives me a boost of accountability and increases my resolve to accomplish everything. So here goes:

Tech stuff

  • Learn Swift, develop 2+ iPhone apps, and launch them to App Store (React Native might work too)

  • Give Uncoverly some TLC and open source code

  • Build MVPs for two ideas I’ve been kicking around for a while (one relates to behavioral economics & commitment contracts and the other is a fun gift subscription box for kids)

  • Make something cool that has a significant machine learning component (maybe an application using TensorFlow or something predictive around commerce or sports)

Personal / Family

  • Keep up my blog writing (1+ post per month)

  • Read more books (1+ book per month)

  • Become a better cook and cook more!

  • Travel more with Libby

  • Call and visit family & friends more

Fitness / Sports

  • Run 3 half marathons and get faster each time (reach goal of 1:35)

  • Get golf handicap under 8 (currently around 9)

  • Play in a soccer league (reach goal: score a goal!)
