2017 - Goals

January 15th, 2017

Why make goals?

I'm writing these goals down to serve as a reminder for me about what I want to focus on this year. They also will provide useful information at the end of the year when I write another Year In Review post, like the one I wrote for 2016. Lastly, putting this out on the internet provides at least some form of accountability to actually try to achieve these goals.

Basic Goals

In 2017, my basic goals are:

Stretch Goals

In 2017, my stretch goals are:

12 in 12

This year, I'm going to try to create 12 MVP's in 12 months. Inspiration from this comes from Pieter Levels, IndieHackers and "micro-entrepreneurs", like TJ Holowaychuck and Patrick McKenzie. I'll be launching the first MVP at the end of the month, and doing a retrospective blog post on the launch and what went right/wrong. If any of these projects "take off" (meaning either solid growth or solid revenue), I'll take a break from the 12 projects in 12 months idea to focus full time on scaling up the successful project. That's all, folks!

I collect articles and essays that are worth your time and send them out once a week.
