For all intents and purposes, 2014 was a good year, starting with my beloved team the Seattle Seahawks winning the Super Bowl and capping off with the same team clinching the number one seed in the playoffs for the NFC conference.  The end of my Seattle sports team woes alone is enough for me to call 2014 a success, but I also had a number of personal accomplishments.  I ran a 10 K.  I started volunteering at a local humane shelter.  I also completed my first year at my post-MBA consulting job and received a hefty bonus for doing so.  From a financial perspective, I surpassed my pre-MBA net worth in March, which is a great psychological hurdle to pass.

The goals I’ve listed below are all my non-career related goals; those I’ll be creating during the review process at work.  I’ve only set deadlines for the first half of the year as I plan to revisit these at the end of June to track progress and likely set more.Dec Weight Chart
