2023 Personal Goals / 2022 In Review
January 01, 2023

Every year, I take the time to reflect on the previous year and set goals for the coming year. The format has evolved over time, and for 2023, I have categorized my goals in an OKR-ish manner.

Future Me Will Thank Me

These are goals that compound; not all of them may have an immediate practical outcome, but they all contribute to skills I want to learn or improve upon.

Work/Life Integration

Towards the end of last year, I took on a larger role, leading the global engineering team at Mindbody. Given our current position and the progress we need to make, I find myself spending more time on work-related tasks. Balancing work and family commitments means I have less time for other hobbies. This year, my goal is to restore a healthier work-life balance, allowing me to dedicate more time to my other interests.


My overarching goal is to consume less and create more - and to be conscious of the quality of the work that I do consume. Even before taking into account the effects of generative AI, media is now effectively infinite. This effectively infinite sea of art and the lack of shared context in what is consumed, consuming new media doesn’t confer much advantage.
