My 2019 Goals
I’m going to write down a few goals for 2019. These are things that I would like to accomplish throughout the year. My hops is that by writing these down in my blog, I’ll be able hold myself accountable. I plan at the end of 2019 / beginning of 2020 to review and see how far I got.
I’m going to write three goals for things to do in 2019:
- A professional goal - This is a goal that is both enjoyable to me and will help me develop professionally.
- A personal ‘technical’ goal - This is a goal that is not really work related (though it could be!) and instead is more about learning something new technology-wise that I wouldn’t get a chance to learn at work.
- A personal ‘non-technical’ goal - This is a goal about me, not related to technology.
Pass the Certified Kubernetes Administrator exam. We are using Kubernetes at work for things, and I feel very overwhelmed and underequipped. Before we completely become dependent upon Kubernetes, I want to make sure I am equipped with everything needed to handle our production workloads on Kubernetes.
I’ve already begun progressing with this by purchasing the Linux Foundation’s Kubernetes Fundamentals course.
Personal Technical Goal
Make a beer recipe calculator. I don’t exactly know what this will look like. I want something that will be both challenging and use something new I’ve never done.
Really, I just need to decide how much I want to learn. Considering I’m also planning to learn Kubernetes, I may be trying to teach myself too many things.
Personal Non-Technical Goal
Get healthier. First, drop the pounds and keep them off. I am overweight, and have been for awhile. Last time I was at a healthy weight I was in my 20s and managed to do it by counting calories and exercising. I’ve started doing this again. However, it doesn’t help to just lose weight, I need to keep it off. More strategy to come on this.
I have more to this goal than just lose weight, but I’ll keep that to myself.
