As per Todoist’s post on completing Annual Review, here are five major parts of life that you should/could judge on:
So the following is the exercise of me going through my 2021 goals and categorizing them based on the groups above.
- get promoted at my current job (from Data Analyst to Web Development)
- Built a webapp at current job (in production)
- Build a Django course with newline
- Built with django
- Start a podcast (built with Django and personal)
- build a job board
- Publish a couple of written interviews
- spend some time each day writing. This could be:
- Use Todoist to track tasks. Consult it often.
- use Anki regularly.
- lose fat, gain muscle. This means:
- better diet
- more exercise
- more meditation
- earn cash (>$1) with a side hustle
- Get out of debt
- help my wife find her calling
- Become more social
- get 100 newsletter subscriber by the end of 2021
- get 500 Twitter followers by the end of 2021
- Join a club or two, based on my interests (for example, Chess or Board Games communities)
- sponsor 5 people on Github
- would be awesome to get one sponsor
- use vim for all my coding
- get to 1600 level in chess and/or beat my dad
- Buy an existing company/project
- Become much better with Python
- build 5 small web projects with different tech
- serverless (AWS lambda)
- Shopify app with Django
- contribute to open source
- Gridsome plugin
- Pocket/Todoist OAuth2.0 API to Django-Allauth
- plugin for Joplin to export to markdown
- progress in learning Italian, using Anki
- increase typing speed
I have started a spreadsheet to track some of the goals here (that are possible to track). Hope to see a lot of progress on most of them. There are a lot of goals, but most of them I’d say doable. Now just need to prioritize and start grinding.
Will reflect next year, maybe mid-year also.
