2014 Resolution Progress Report

Less than 2 month to go in the year of 2014. Time to take a look at the goals I have for the year and the progress I made so far. Here is the list of the goals I have for 2014:

  • Paddleboard to Keelung Isle
  • Trip to Taroko Gorge
  • Hike 6 more Taiwan 100 Top Peaks
  • Save 3,000 USD (100,000 NTD)
  • Learn Archery
  • Lead Climb 5.11a
  • Over night biking trip
  • Improve Language Ability (Take Japanese or Spanish Lesson)

While I have done quite of few of them but there are still many more to go… Now I really need to set priority to archive the ones that matters the most to me. Here are the ones I have yet to accomplish:

  • Lead Climb 5.11a
  • Hike 6 more Taiwan 100 Top Peaks
  • Learn Archery
  • Over night biking trip

Out of the 8, I got 4 left… We will see how many more I could knock out.

2014 Goals and Resolutions

Mt. Yoeti

First day of 2014… I decided to take it easy and relax while writing down a few things I want to do this year. I am sure this list will grow in the next days but it’s good to start somewhere:

  • Paddleboard to Keelung Isle
  • Trip to Taroko Gorge
  • Hike 6 more Taiwan 100 Top Peaks
  • Save 3,000 USD (100,000 NTD)
  • Learn Archery
  • Lead Climb 5.11a
  • Over night biking trip
  • Improve Language Ability (Take Japanese or Spanish Lesson)

I feel there is a lack of professional development on the list but I am sure there will be some soon.

New Goals

I have heard that if you really want to archive something, you must set up goals. Merely having those objectives, that is not enough, one must have them written down to keep oneself accountable. Also, my recently qi-kung workshop teacher enlighten me with her wisdom of archiving something great in life, the secret is to accumulate over time, little by little. One more suggestion that I gathered that I have taken into consideration is having a vision for 3, 5, and 10 years. So here are my goals in the big picture and steps in the regular basis to archive them.

3 Years: Able to carry on a conversation in Spanish and improve my German skills (particularly in reading and writing), enrolling in a PhD program.

5 Years: Finishing my PhD program, re-start my educating career.

10 Years: Have a family of my own, working in higher education in a position I am able to influence lives for the better.

To archive that, this is my goals until enlisted in the military:

  • Minimum of 30 minutes Rosetta Stone language learning program for each language per day (I will be looking for children’s book in the library for me to start reading as well).
  • Spending minimum of 3 hours working on graduate school application process.
  • Read at least 2 books in Chinese (books which would help me with my writing or personal improvement in some way) per week
  • Read one English book per week
  • Write 30 minutes per day

I think they are doable goals and will significantly help me in my future.
