My 2014 Goals by the Numbers

2014 by the numbers I stopped making resolutions a long time ago. Resolving something seems to goad me to run out and do the opposite.  I prefer goals. Goals are supposed to be measurable, so here are my numerical goals for 2014:

2 extended travel essays written and published by On Your Radar Media Company

50 miles: an achievable ride even when hilly or wet at an average of 15 mph

20 pounds lost and not found again (by July)

100 percent of retirement savings goal met

2 adventures in New Zealand

1 Tour de France adventure (27 days in July)

2 satisfied clients with at least 3 episodes of surpassing expectations

3 personal development conferences (CTI, Storylines, Travel Writing)
