Happy New Years!

As a lot of people do I take the first of the year to meditate, refocus myself and set goals for the new year. I have often thought about keeping these goals in GitHub, but for now that will just live in reminders or Omnifocus. But the question is going to be what is this year going to be like for me?


I am going to focus on getting health this year. From mental health to physical health. All of this will be addressed. I have had a lingering thyroid problem that might be cancer. However, They can only do ultrasounds until it changes in size. I am going to keep focusing on this until it either gets better or we prove it is not harmful.

I have had back issues since a car accident. I have pretty much just ignored the pain and fought through it until this year. I am finally getting into physical therapy and working on fixing the issues. Just these couple of things will allow me to attack the next issue… my weight.

I have went from 250+ down to around 210 – 215 where I sit now. I am going to work to get to 200 even or blow by this time next year. This will improve my overall health and make my hobbies more fun.


Every year we have a chance to win a trip to presidents club. This takes places at different locations all over the world. So this is always going to be in my goals. What I am going to focus on is making this process less stressful. There are some things that I am putting in place that will allow me to bee stress free and productive. Mainly around seeing what is coming at me and clearing what I can quickly. I will likely write more about this as time goes on.


From the hobbies stand point I am going to continue to focus on shooting. I plan on refining my reloading proces and winning at least 3 matches this year.

From a Ham radio perspective, I want to compete in a couple of contests and do well in POTA and the Grid Chase. These will be getting lots of blog time.


Something I never payed a lot of attention to, but that is going to change that this year. The goal is debt free and house. What doo you guys do?

  1. Hi Ken, Just a note that I saw your call on the QRZ.COM Homepage in the Featured Member section a moment ago. I visited your QRZ page and clicked on the “Web” tab next to your Logbook to say “hello”. Hope you can do the same at my page when you log in at QRZ. Have a good week.
