2010 ---> 2011

Looking back at this year there's a lot I have done and accomplished as well as NOT done, and will have to be either finished or dealt with next year.

Here is a list of my personal goals to guide me into the New Year!

1) Keeping up with my workout routine --

This year, I vowed to stay physical.
And I did.
Every week, if not Pilates, I did Yoga, and recently I started Bikram Yoga. I kept up with it sometimes just once a week, sometimes three times. If I couldn't get to a studio, I simply jump roped outside.
I will stay on top of this and some more. I want to try the 30 day challenge with my Bikram Yoga, as well as try the advanced class with 84 poses (normal level is 26 poses).

2) Relocating

I have been talking about moving back West for over 10 years, and I'm sure people who have known me that long are pretty tired of it.
I think this is the year to do so, and though there are few complications as far as my job is concerned (I love flying out of Chicago, and I don't want to transfer bases) I think I will ultimately be happy back in La la Land.

3) Developing my inner writer

Though I was fortunate enough to find some blogs that liked my writing, and published them, I have been meaning to take courses to strengthen my skills.

4) Visiting more countries

This may come as a surprise to many of you as my job is about going to places -- however per my language skill, I usually do the routes to Asia Internationally or LA when flying domestically (obviously language is not relevant in that case) thus creating a 'pattern' in my flying.
I am going to try to work a few different flights and 'get out of my shell' in that sense and enjoy my job a little bit more.

5) Coaching

I have wanted to be a Life Coach for a while now.
Actually, to be more precise, I didn't know that what I wanted to do was Coaching, or that it existed.
Life Coaching is a fairly new career path and it agrees with my philosophy when it comes to helping others in self growth.
I will be taking courses online and though it may take me a while to finish (flying, a writing course, AND Coaching course!) I am determined to get eventually certified and making it my second career in the long run.

What are your goals and aspirations for the New Year?


  1. Great goals. I really like that your goals aren't the typical New Year's resolutions that get thrown to the wayside January 2nd. I also like that you have a plan which means you are more likely to accomplish said goals.

    My main goal for this year is to successfully complete my Web Developer Certification and land an amazing position in web developing/social media. I would also like to branch out on my own and do some web designing contract work. Wanna see if I have what it takes to work for myself.

    I will also stay more connected with my family that's out-of-town. I'm talking about a few cousins, aunts, uncles and niece that I lost touch with. I want to get reconnected. The end of 2010 paved the way for that.

    I have some other goals but they are riding on me achieving my first main goal of finishing school. I have very high hopes for 2011 and I'm excited to see what this new year is going offer.

  2. I am right there with you and I am also making changes to my routine to get on track and be organised and come out of comfort zones!
