Happy New Year! My goals in 2016

2016 goals

Firstly, Happy New Year everyone! I was lucky enough to watch the fireworks in London with my partner and it was so cool! For anyone that has not been before. I would highly recommend!

I did not blog last year on goals and I thought I would take this as an opportunity to do so. I do not believe in resolutions, as these tend to be short lived. Therefore I have a list of goals that I want to achieve in 2016. This will enable me to reflect on my progress at the end of the year, making a commitment to myself. Its written down, set in stone!

My Goals in 2016 are:

  1. Try to blog at least once a month, a goal I set in 2015, which I did not meet (one down!)
  2. Obtain the Cisco CCNA Security certification to extend my CCNA and progress through the Cisco certification track. I hope to do some posts during this journey
  3. Keep on top of my Open University degree in Computing & IT and Business (est. completion end of 2017)
  4. Make healthy food choices, more meat (mmmm steak!), fruit and veg – less junk
  5. Try and hit the gym at least 3-4 times a week. focusing mainly on strength
  6. Buy a house with my partner, automate most things and hide a home lab somewhere…
  7. To deliver more speeches at the Thanet Speakers Club
  8. Network network network…
  9. Visit Amsterdam and make it back in one piece!
  10. Read more! whether it be autobiographies, fiction/non-fiction, blogs etc

This year is going to be a busy one!
