What is something you want to achieve this year?

This year I would like to accomplish several goals. I think I’ve created a goal list with pretty attainable goals. The challenge is to remain focused, especially during the earlier party of the year.

I would like to scuba dive more and therefore travel more, create and submit an underwater film, improve my proficiency with Final Cut Pro, learn Logic Pro X, try to keep my desktop clean and lose weight.

Dive into new and unique places in the world!

Scuba Diving & Travel:

I have a few epic dive trips finally scheduled this year that I have been planning for years. Top of the list is the Sardine Run in South Africa. The sardine run occurs each year when billions of sardines spawn in the cold water and then move northward along the east coast of South Africa. The sheer number creates a feed frenzy along the coastline, attracting; whales, sharks, sea lions, large fish, and sea birds.

Create & Submit an Underwater Film:

I originally started this website/blog to document what I was observing underwater and share it with friends. Many of my films are short clips of specific behavior or fish ID movies with a few subtitles for context. There are several underwater film contests each year, and my goal is to create a completed film and submit it for consideration.

Complete and submit an underwater film.
Learn Final Cut Pro X and Logic Pro X.

Improve proficiency with Final Cut Pro X and Learn Logic Pro X:

To achieve my goal of creating and submitting an underwater film to a contest for consideration. I need to improve my proficiency with Final Cut Pro X and learn Logic Pro X. The challenge here is spending 1-2 hours per day reading manuals and then applying techniques to my upcoming film.

Organizing Workstation:

Keeping my workstation clean and uncluttered has also ways been a challenge. There are items that I use pretty frequently which need to be on my desktop for short periods. It’s hard to trash or file older items, and I end up with piles of documents. I aim to spend the end or beginning of each money reviewing everything on my desktop and deciding if the document or item needs to be filed for future use or trashed.

My workstation needs attention!

Finally, I’d like to lose weight this year. My goal is to lose 15 lbs. and maintain the loss after I hit the goal. It’s been a struggle over the past few years—I haven’t been able to stick with my dieting or exercise routines because of my professional schedule. But this time around, I’m determined to stick with it because it will help me feel better about myself and give me confidence in other areas of my life as well.

I started this project early this morning, attempting 15 dry days of no alcohol. So, don’t ask me to go out for drinks in the next 15 days. LOL!

Bloganuary is a global writing challenge intended to bring people together through blogging. I would love to hear about your goals and what you want to accomplish this year.

  1. I want to keep up with my friend’s blogs…😁 Good luck with all your goals. Losing weight is probably the hardest – I used to weigh 200 lbs. The trick is eating food that is not processed.
