The two best things about reviewing your own goals are
- It means the goals that you set some time ago are still important
- It is an amazing opportunity to put checks on the goals that are completed and at the same time gives you a good idea on what changes need to be made.
Exactly 5 months ago, on December 14, 2014 I had set my goals for 2015. This post will serve as a review of all the list of goals.
Writing: Publish 100 articles on my blog in the next 52 weeks.
Percentage progress: 4%
My comment : Very behind, need to write more often.
Making videos: Publish 10 videos in 52 weeks on my youtube channel.
Percentage progress: 0%
My comment : Not started yet. I know, very bad. But I’m confident I will do this!
Reading: Read 20 books in 52 weeks
Percentage progress : 0%
My comment : This doesn’t mean I don’t read. I read often. Since what I read is mostly non-fiction, I read multiple books.
Business: Start and run a profitable business
Percentage progress : 20% (50% for starting and 50% for making it profitable; 20% means I am still 30% behind of starting one)
My comment : I am working on starting a business. Me and couple of my friends have set up a small office. We are in the process of registering it. More details on it soon.
Education: Learning and teaching excites. I have been having this idea of writing a book about programming. But have not made effort to really write it. Goal is to complete the first draft in 52 weeks

Percentage progress: 5%
My comment: Long way to go. Pray for me. If I reach the goal, I’ll treat anyone who asks me for one 😉
Overall impression of the review: There is progress. But not as much I would have liked. However feeling myself to be on the positive side.
