Weekly Goals Review: 5/13-5/19

These goals posts are mostly for myself, so that I can keep track of where I’m going, where I’ve been, and if I’m on the track I’d like to be one. They are also so I can hold myself accountable when I fail to meet a goal. I find that easier to do if I list my goals in a public forum such as this rather than just tack it on a wall where only I’ll see it. Feel free to comment if you wish, but it isn’t necessary.

I switched my focus from Cherokee Johnson to Sins of a Father in the middle of the week, so I got a late start with the goals, but I’m happy with where I am.

Green means the goal was accomplished.

Red means it wasn’t.
