oh, that rhymed! So, with the new year upon us I decided I wanted to write down a few goals. This year has been good to me and I know next year will be even better. These are my top five major goals for the upcoming year… but this is not even half of the things I want to do, I have so many more! I want to continue focusing on my health and fitness, explore my interests and hobbies (cooking, blogging, photography, volunteering, etc.), travel as much as I can, and continue to grow and nurture my personal relationships (family, friends, and boyfriend).
In the past few weeks I’ve also been working on another list, so here it is my 30 before 30… so many goals, so little time!
1. Run a half marathon
I previously mentioned that I registered for Nike Women’s Half Marathon; I’m nervous yet excited about training for this. What I really want to do for my fitness goals is actually quite different from this (I would prefer to focus on bodybuilding/power lifting) but I think this will be good for me. I’m slowly trying to learn as much as I can about this sport; I know its going to be tough but I know I can do it. I know this because I’m motivated and determined, I have the support of my friends (like Arlenis and Kenne) and boyfriend, and because I already registered for it and I want that tiffany’s necklace damnit!
2. Take PMP exam
Just a few months ago I decided to get my PMP certification, it stands for Project Management Professional. If you are familiar with it, it’s a widely recognized credential that recognizes an individual for a combination of formal study and practical project management experience. My application has already been approved, the exam has been scheduled and now is just a matter of praying that I pass the exam. That’s what I have to do right… just pray? I suppose I can try studying too.
3. Go to Japan
This is not set in stone but my plan is to take part in what my school refers to as a “Global Business Experience” as part of my MBA curriculum. Last spring I took part in a similar course where we got to travel to Spain and Morocco. It was an absolutely amazing experience and since I love traveling I’m using it as an excuse to do it again. This would be for two weeks and since I’ve never ventured that side of the world I’m super excited! yummy sushi here I come!
4. Get promoted
I really enjoy what I do and with over six solid years behind me it’s only natural that I look for opportunities to continue to grow professionally. I mean, I think I’m qualified… I’m the best delegator you’ll find!
5. Finish my MBA
The decision to pursue my MBA was partly a result of circumstances but ultimately I’m really happy with the decision. Although it’s been tough to juggle school, work, and my other random hobbies I can honestly say that it has been an overall enjoyable experience. Now, with just 4 classes left (2 more semesters) I’m really looking forward to adding this to my list of accomplishments. By the end of next year I should have a Massive Bank Account… that’s what it stands for, right?
