Goals for the Year

Around this time each year, we have to create goals for the year at work.  I really don’t like this process.  I understand that they are trying to make a quantitative way to evaluate the performance of all of the employees, but it’s hard to make goals when I don’t have control over what I work on.

At church this week I was thinking that even though I dislike goals at work, it would probably be beneficial to have personal goals so that I can manage my free time better.  Here are my goals that I have come up with.

  1. Read More
  2. Write More – I hated writing in school, but you can’t take over the world if you can’t convey your thoughts to others. I’ve also had to write quite a bit more for work for project proposals.
  3. Build a robot for the DPRG May competition
  4. Play the piano better
  5. Home Automation – be able to control several of the lights in my house
  6. Balance work time better.  I always end up having to make up at least 2 hours on the weekends.

I’ll have to come back and put in some deadlines.
