My 200 Goals for 2019

200 Goals for 2019

When life throws a challenge your way, there are two options – you can overcome it OR you can let it defeat you. Depending on the challenge, either option is completely reasonable, but more often than not you’re going to get a lot more out of overcoming it. That’s sort of the motto for 2019 – overcome everything.

Back in December, my friend Casey had tweeted out that he hadn’t done his annual list of 100 goals for 2018. I tossed out a flippant remark about doing 200 for 2019 – and then upped the ante by agreeing to do it if he did. Equally flippantly, he agreed, not fully realizing what we were getting ourselves into. It took a couple weeks to come up with realistic goals that weren’t moonshots and could be reasonably achieved in a year, but I did it. So, now the real fun begins – seeking to achieve them all before January 1, 2020. Here we go:
