Year In Review: 2014
This year has truly been a year to remember!
I’ve done a lot of things that I never thought I would ever do. For example, I started my own Youtube channel and uploaded my first video on June 11, 2014. I also, started my own blog and made my first post on June 10, 2014. I’ve connected and networked with so many amazing people and I’ve had some amazing times with my family and friends. For me, 2014 has been a year of going out of my comfort zone and taking action and pursuing my goals. The results have been outstanding. But I couldn’t have done it alone. There are some amazing people in my life who’ve supported me and some inspiring people who’ve helped me strategize my pursuits and help give meaning and give purpose to my visions. Despite my fulfilling year, it certainly wan’t easy and didn’t come without hard work.
When we are feeling down or unmotivated, it’s easy to be hard on yourself and feel like you’re stagnate in life. However, if you actually think of how your life was last year or even a few years ago, often times you’ll realize that you have been through so much, have learned many lessons and have accomplished many goals. I’ve heard that writing out all of your accomplishments is a great first step to reaching your dreams and measuring your success. I’ve also heard that by saying your wants in life out loud and telling others what you want to do makes you more likely to get it done. In a way, it holds you accountable to doing it now that others are counting on you to do it too. I started to practice this in the summer and I do believe it works. I’ve even completed some of the goals or even surpassed some of them. Here are a few that I’m so proud to have accomplished in 2014:
- 1,000+ people reading my blog every month
- 1,000+ people sharing my HTML Reference Sheets
- Amazing comments from XO PIXEL Readers
- Creating content that XO PIXEL readers find helpful and useful
- 2,000+ views on my DIY Business Card video
- 1,000+ views on my HTML & CSS Videos
- 100+ Youtube Subscribers
- 100+ Facebook Fans
- Finally made a media kit for XO PIXEL
There are also many goals that I have yet to accomplish but I’m more determined than ever to make them happen since I’ve got the ball rolling in 2014. Now that 2015 is fast approaching, I would like to outline some goals that I wish to accomplish by the end of next year. Hopefully by putting them out there, I’ll be more responsible with getting them done, after all, you all are so amazing, supportive and encouraging! Here is my list (in no particular order):
- Find an amazing paid internship
- Increase Klout score
- 300 Youtube subscribers
- Travel to New York City
- Create more great content weekly and consistently
