If you do a search through this blog, you will see that I’m big on setting goals. I started doing that when I decided that this was going to be more than a hobby for me. I highly encourage anyone, no matter what level or time constraint you have, if this is more than a hobby, make the goal. I have set some pretty hefty goals for myself. I’m not sure if I will meet all of them, but I’m well on my way. Here is a list by month.
