New Year Resolution for 2016: Goals, Plans and the Way Forward

2016 new year goals
As the year 2015 comes to an end, it is the time to look back and reflect on the past year, to take account of good things and to consider the not-so-good things as lessons learnt to be avoided in future years.

My Goals for 2016:


1. Be a morning person

Just like 2015, one of my goals for 2016 is to become a morning person. Easier said than done as I work with people around the globe, I have to be awake in their time zones.

Although I managed to get up early during this year, I had to sacrifice quite a few hours of sleep for that. In the coming year, I will try to get at least 6 hours of sleep and rise early.

The goal is not just to get up early, but to be productive as well.

As reflected earlier, I could be a morning person, if morning happened around noon.

2. Learn something new, everyday

For 2016, I plan to learn more about Python – the programming language I started to take interest into during 2015. I also intend to learn new skills related to Internet Marketing, Speed Reading and Homeschooling.

3. Get, and stay, Fit

Another goal for 2016 is to get and stay fit. Obviously, not lifting-heavy-weights kind of fit.

To get and stay fit in 2016, I intend to start eating healthier foods, become more active, exercise regularly, reduce stress and get more sleep.

4. Read More

read more books
One of my goals in 2015 was to read more books. Some of the books I read during last year were:

  • Who Moved My Cheese?: An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life by Dr. Spencer Johnson. A truly inspirational book. I heartily recommend it to people who are seriously interested in changing their lives for good.
  • Orcs by Stan Nicholas. This is fantasy fiction by about the mythical characters including Orcs, Dwarves and sorts. It was a nice read.
  • Grow rich while you sleep by Ben Sweetland. Good book on investments and passive earning.
  • 1984 by George Orwell. The Orwell classic that coined the term Big Brother. Although 1984 is about a dystopia, it seems frightening realistic considering modern day security and surveillance measures taken by many governments in the world.

In 2016, I intend to read at least 20 books during the year.

… and as always, Family First!
