Goals for 2024 ๐ŸŽฏ

In order to keep myself publicly accountable for my goals, I decided to keep track of them on this page. I will update this page throughout the year to reflect my progress.
Total progress: 8.82%

Get my pilot's license ๐Ÿ‘จโ€โœˆ๏ธ


This was already my goal in 2023, but I didn't make it. Only a little bit was missing, so I am hopeful that I can make it in 2024.

  • Pass progress test for solo flight
  • Solo cross country flight
  • Pass the practical exam (skill test)

Become more proficient in flying ๐Ÿ›ฉ๏ธ


In order to become a good pilot, I need to fly a lot. These are metrics for after obtaining the license.

  • Land at 5 different airports
  • Add 15 hours to my logbook
  • Do 8 flights
  • Take 2 flights with a real purpose (not just flying around)
  • Take 3 passengers with me (can be separate flights)

Become fit ๐Ÿ’ช


I started losing weight in 2023, but gained a bit during the holidays.

  • Reach ideal weight (73 kg)
  • Stay within ยฑ2kg of ideal weight until the end of the year

Be an active public speaker ๐Ÿ—ฃ๏ธ


I want to stay active in the community and share my knowledge with others.

  • Speak at 3 conferences
  • Moderate 3 conferences
  • Speak at a panel discussion

Learn calligraphy ๐Ÿ–‹๏ธ


I have always wanted to learn calligraphy, but never got around to it. Not sure how to really "measure" it, so these goals might change once I get more familiar with the topic.

  • Learn the basics of Copperplate calligraphy with guides
  • Be able to write the lowercase alphabet without guide
  • Be able to write the uppercase alphabet without guide
  • Learn the basics of calligraphy of a second style
  • Create all our Christmas present tags and seating cards with calligraphy. Extra points if the guests are impressed

Travel more โœˆ๏ธ


In the recent I haven't travelled much as I wanted to, but I want to change that.

  • Visit 7 different countries
  • Visit 2 places I haven't been to before
