My Goals for 2019

 With all of my talk of goal-setting on this blog (and there is plenty of it), I thought it would be only fair for me to share my goals for 2019 here.  This is always a bit of a scary exercise for me.  On the other hand, it’s sort of a “practice what I preach” moment as well.  In the interest of transparency, there are a few I have left off.  They are a bit more specific and personal.  Either way, here are quite a few of my goals, with a bit of information about them!   1.  Increase Hasseman Marketing Sales 45%:  This is a lofty goal.  But we sent a firm foundation in 2018.  We finished the 2nd half of the year with nearly 25% growth.  My hope is this will be a year that we take it to the next level. 2.  Increase Youtube Subscribers to 1000.  I plan to do more vlogs this year and I think this makes sense.  You can help by subscribing here!  Please do. 3.  Run/Walk 15 Miles Per Week:  This one is pretty straight forward and falls under the Fitness category.  (Read about the 5 F’s of Goal Setting here).   4.  Take 3 Cool Trips with Amy:  We have one scheduled, so I am on my way.  But anytime when we get to hang out…is very good. 5.  Write New Book:  This one has been hanging out there for me for a while.  I have the title and the idea.  I just need to put in the work. 6.  Sell 500 Copies of Books:  I have two books out there now that I think are worthy of purchase.  I need to do a much better job of promoting.  Again, you can help with this one.  Delivering Marketing Joy (about doing promo better) is here.  In addition, the book Fan of Happy (personal development lessons I wrote for my daughters) is here.   7.  Pay off Credit Card Debt:  Though it’s not a huge number, it’s one that I need to fix. 8.  Increase Personal Savings:  This is not a mountainous number…I would like for it to be!   9.  Be a better Father and Husband:  Here is where I make the case for “non-measurable” goals.  I don’t how to quantify this.  But I do know that I need to continue to improve and focus on this.  Having this on my list every year helps me do that. So that’s my goal list for 2019.  What are your thoughts?  What am I missing?   Thanks for reading along and lending your support.  I truly appreciate it.  Feel free to become a VIP.  You can do that by signing up here.
