2016 Highlights and 2017 Goals

2017 is just around the corner, 2016 may go down as my most memorable year. I have lost a very dear some one, but amidst all of that I have grown mentally stronger and I can say I have achieved most of the goals I have set.

Listing some highlights of my year.

  • Financial growth
    • achieved my target stock portfolio
    • paid house mortgage extra to decrease the monthly amortizations
    • increased my mutual funds and emergency funds
    • slowly achieving my retirement plan
  • Career growth
    • got promoted at work
    • grew my skills and looked up as being an expert
    • attended my first ever Dreamforce
  • Family and health
    • family is whole again as they have migrated to NZ and followed me here
    • been consistently fit as I have been to the gym religiously for the past two years(but still need to fix my diet). Got into 75KG bulk and cutting down to 73KG.
    • crossed off from my bucket list as family got a new SUV
    • and new baby on the way!!

Now setting some very ambitious goal for 2017. Goals without a plan simply a wish.

  • Build my way up to Technical Architect
  • Be a Salesforce MVP
  • Revamp my blog again(I say this every year)
