2015 Goals

Happy New Year! I hope 2014 was good to you. But even if it wasn't, may 2015 be a year of favor for you; a year of love, joy, hope and peace; and a year of adventure, purpose, and unexpected encounters. I was praying this season, and evaluating my life and where it's going. And one word keeps popping up to me: DECIDE. 2015 is a year of decision for me. I've allowed past failures to paralyze me into indecision. I end up making decisions long after the opportunity has passed, or still find myself in that limbo of indecision. But I didn't use to be like this. I used to be brave to the point of impulsiveness. And while I don't want to be impulsive anymore, I also am tired of being stuck in the unsure.

So I will decide. I will decide where to take my business and not be paralyzed by what people make me feel. I will decide where I want to go and not be held back by the voices in my head that tell me I had failed before (all the more reason to push forward since I haven't got a successful result yet. Learn, don't avoid) And I will decide who I will and will not pursue and not remain stuck in my indecision about how my heart and my head are not in agreement. Decide already! Who will you follow? Your head or your heart? Just decide. Then you can work on making it work once you've chosen one.

So what are my goals for this year?

  • Get Unlock & Load to a stable and self-sustaining state
  • Use Unlock & Load to distribute content that is nation-forming
  • Get Komikasi to create at least 4 original content this year
  • Kickstarter Talecraft! Have it redrawn and reprinted, and take it abroad
  • Go into romance novels. I have a three-way deal I have in mind
  • Finish 10-year roadmap for the Empire of Stories
  • Finish writing a book this year
  • Design and have made the dress you'll wear to the Awards Night this year
  • Go to SIGGRAPH Asia this year
  • Go to Turkey this year
  • See the stars again
  • Learn something new this year
  • Lose 15 pounds this year
  • Enroll in a gym (I can do this. I can do this! Wait, maybe I need a buddy. Any volunteers?)
  • 888: drink 8 glasses of water, get 8 hours of sleep, and give 8 hugs a day

It is time to stretch, even if it feels uncomfortable or painful, or painfully confusing. Just like recovering from a stroke-induced half-body paralysis, I need to move even if it hurts.
