It’s the last day in February, and time to check up on those goals [Whoop, I sound like such a driven guy]. True to character, I planned six months ahead from January but in usual fashion, when I’m in Lagos everything tumbles. I get super busy but never really do anything other than spend money and average my way through work. I was reflecting, and I decided to type a public reminder.
Yo Ope, remember to:
- Stop all side projects
A few more weeks to go bruv, and I’ll be truly free.
- Run to lose weight
14 out of 28 days this month, total of 50km! Also, I bought a basketball and am learning to play.
- Learn something new with work
Man, I bought two courses on Udemy — on VueJS, just need to make the time.
- Teach what you know
I got the company to pay three people so I teach them design. I’m trying really hard and they don’t make me feel terrible.
- Publish regular research into digital design and how it affects the average Nigerian
I’m worried this is just an obsession borne out of satisfaction. But I’ll hold on to it — just in case I’m truly driven.
Sigh. We haven’t even bought gas. I’m going to try to learn to cook something new in March at least.
- Go to East Africa
Already planning and saving!
- Fix my guitar and learn a couple of hours every week
- Write regular articles
Haven’t gotten the hang of this, but I’ve done a bit of writing. I need clearer mornings, so I can focus and write.
The only thing I’ve really been able to keep up with is exercise and running, and I really need to do better generally. Not to sound like a thought leader or a (the gods forbid) motivational speaker, but you should probably check how far along you are too.
