This list has been adapted from my original post on my 2013 goals which contains the framework I used to establish them.
Note* it does not contain goals for the company I work for as I’d like to keep these private. These are very important to me too.
If you think you can help me achieve one of these in particular, don’t be a stranger – Holla at cha boy
