where i determine what is important in my life, evaluate my performance/satisfaction in those spheres (graded out of 4), and set new goals for those items going forward.
relationship (30%; ♦♦♦)
What’s happening: I’ve since been going outside of my comfort zone and working at putting myself where I interact with more gay people, which has gotten easier as time goes on. Had a very enjoyable, but ultimately heartbreaking relationship with Sean after 3 months. Don’t forget Jared.
Goals: Spend, on average, at least 1 day per week with gay people, with over half of these interactions dates.
health (20%; ♦♦♦♦)
What’s happening: After recovering from the injury after Bay to Breakers, training has escalated prior to Tough Mudder Norcal 2011. Despite not running the SF Half due to the funeral, I did meet my goal at Bay to Breakers (sub 8 minute pace). TMT has been really fun and satisfying.
Goals: Complete Tough Mudder/Get the headband. Continue training 4x week after TM. Reach 10 reps in Divis Up or Shut Up. Run a half marathon in under 1:45. Finish a 5K in under 22 minutes. Max number of pushups to 50 and max number of pullups to 15. Run shirtless down the Embarcadero.
friendship (15%; ♦♦♦)
What’s happening: Since the epic bonding of Party Cat and subsequent drifting, I am somewhat back on the market (platonically), though I am less motivated/interested in friendships these days. I think I am satisfied with where I am currently.
Goals: Continue to sustain my current friendships and develop new ones as necessary. Don’t feel lonely.
job (15%; ♦♦)
What’s happening: Passed 5th test, though I am losing steam on the modules. Study instead of Starcraft. Sean bonding has been super great.
Goals: Reach the mid-way assessment by 2012. Improve consulting/actuary skills.
happiness/purpose (10%; ♦♦♦)
What’s happening: I don’t know if I’ve just been keeping myself more busy, but been feeling a lot better, overall. Save the heartbreak.
home life (5%; ♦♦♦)
What’s happening: Things at the house continue along quite well.
Goals: Plan a house dinner/gathering/party at least once a month.
family (5%; ♦♦)
What’s happening: Relationship with mother has been rockier than usual.
Goals: Don’t make mom cry.
