Goals

I'm a little goal oriented

For a long time I've been writing down goals. I think it started with new years resolutions, then it became monthly resolutions. Lately I've been doing monthly goals where I list out my top 25 goals and organize them by priority, then pick a few to tackle for the month. On the first of any month, I'll probably be doing this.

Career Related

I have a lot of internal goals at Code School that don't make sense to chat about, but there is one external one that I'm passionate about.
