Looking Forward – Goals for 2012

I was just reading through the blogs I follow and saw Lewis Cunningham’s newest post listing his year in review and goals for the new year. I really like the idea of being able to look back next year to see how much I completed.

2011 was a very good year for me, which was very much needed. I really have nothing to complain about in the year either professionally or personally, which is rare indeed 🙂

But no progress can be made by being stagnant, so onto a new year that hopefully I can make even better. Below are my professional-related goals for 2012. I will check back in a year to see how I have done, and how my interests/priorities changed.

These should all be relatively easy to achieve with a little bit of effort, and they will make sure I keep learning which is the most important thing for me. Here’s to wishing 2012 is everyone’s best year so far (and that the Mayans just ran out of space on their calendar 🙂 )
