Over the last 2-3 years, I’ve got into the habit of writing my goals. This one practice has helped me to go to the next level in every area of my life. I would like to share the 10 goals I’ve set for myself in 2015 with you, mainly for 2 reasons:
- I want to motivate you and many others to set goals for yourself and make your life more productive.
- I want you to hold me accountable so that I’ll work extra hard in achieving my goals.
In the end of 2014, when I was framing my goals for the next year, I went around asking my friends and family to share their goals with me. I was very surprised to know that very few of them had goals. Even the ones who did have a vague idea, had not written their goals. I strongly believe that goals have to be written and they need to be reviewed on a daily basis. Only then we’ll get more clarity about our lives and this helps us to plan our day better. We’ll start avoiding the activities that are not important and we’ll start focusing on things that are important to us.

My 10 Goals for 2015:
1. Lose all the baby fat I’ve accumulated. I want to me fit, energetic and active. By eating nutritious food and exercising regularly, I should be able to bring down my weight from 60 kg to 55 kg this year.
2. Write and publish my book Job Escape Plan. I’ve always wanted to become an author, but only this year I actually wrote it down. My book is getting released by the end of April 2015. I hope the book helps a lot of people who are not happy in their jobs, to start an online business from home, grow it and then quit their jobs.
3. Earn a passive income of Rs.5 lacs per month (~$8k) from my publishing business Awesome Life Resources. My income from this business has very quickly grown from $1000 in the beginning of this year to $4500 last month. So, I’ve crossed the half way mark already!
4. Start my personal website. I am launching my site on 15th April 2015. The prime reason would be to use this platform to share my success stories, my struggles, my learning and failures with a wider audience and reach out to more people.
5. Launch an online training academy. I’ve partnered with my friend Murali Sundaram to create a couple of online courses that’ll help people to achieve what we’ve achieved so far in our lives. This dream project should get launched in the next month or two.
6. Start my one-on-one coaching practice. I’ll be coaching people over Skype calls to help them identify their passion and convert it into an online business. I’m in talks with a couple of friends already. I’m helping a dietitian friend who quit her job to set up a diet counselling site. I’m also urging another friend who is a fitness trainer to have an online presence.
7. Attend the Train the Trainer program. This seminar is happening in Chennai in June and it’s being conducted by T.Harv Eker’s team. I’m very excited about this program because it’ll help me in setting up my training academy that I’m starting with Murali. I am a firm believer in life long learning.
8. Do my morning routine regularly. Whenever I wake up at 5 am and perform my morning routine till 7 am, my day becomes a lot more productive. I am able to achieve a lot and also spend time with my family in the evenings. Therefore, I want to become regular at this habit and do it at least 5 times a week.
9. Drive my car confidently. Though I learnt car driving and got my license a couple of years back, I am still scared to drive my car alone. By the end of this year, I would be driving it myself and become independent.
10. Family holiday in Dubai. Since the time my kid was born, we haven’t been travelling much. This year, we are planning a trip to Dubai, which I am really looking forward to!
Those were my 10 goals for 2015. Please do share your goals in the comments below. That way, we both can hold each other accountable and strive harder to make this year more productive than the last year 🙂
