What’s On Your Personal Roadmap for 2012?

Somewhat in the same vein as the previous post about getting fired it occurred to me after reading many of the comments that I’m actually quite interested in some of the future plans for many of our community members around these parts.

What are some of the things on your personal roadmap for 2012 (as far as you can tell)? What have you got planned? What are some of the crazy-awesome projects that you’re planning on starting, building, and launching? What are some of the new businesses that you’re going to begin? What things will you stop doing this coming year that you’ve done every single year so far?

One of the most powerful things that I’ve learned about sharing my goals is that I typically am more amped about completing them after I share them. I know that many people suggest that sharing ideas actually stops your progress but I haven’t found that to be true. Obviously I’ve found it to be just the opposite.

Sharing one of your projects or business ideas in a comment is relatively harmless anyways, right? Or is it…

Love to hear what you’ve got planned. Inspire me folks!

Just so that I can participate as well I’ve already shared briefly an idea that I’m going to start next month: A new coaching program to help move people toward their goals.

In fact, I’ve already got my first test group lined up and they are already interacting in a serious way in a community huddle that I’ve created. They’ve got assignments already up and our first meeting is in January 19th. Incredible. What was a loose idea is now quickly forming through my Class Zero alpha group.

This is, without question, one of the few things I have on my personal roadmap for 2012. There’s no telling if it’s going to be a ‘success’ but that doesn’t matter. It’s progress, it’s movement forward. It’s all about getting stuff done. Remember the Done Manifesto?

So that’s one of them that I’m sharing with you publicly. Your turn.

    My first eBook is the subject of the 31 Days to Pray for Your Spouse Challenge launching on the 1st of the year. Also, I’m hoping to expand my Virtual Blogging Assistance business as I add clients to my queue. Personally, I’m looking to simplify and streamline my endeavors.

    Finding a job is a big one on my list. I graduated a month ago having done an undergraduate degree and a research year. Unfortunately my earlier post graduation career plans in policy development fell through pretty decisively. I’m now pursuing possibilities in market research as it seems like a really interesting field. Applied for a great job last week I am cautiously hopeful about.

    I’d also like to make a lot more progress on my book and possibly get it finished. It is still in the fairly early stages but people seem to be enjoying what I’ve been giving them for feedback so far.

      excited for you! let us know if you get that job!

    I’ll be doing a great deal of writing… My first book (http://theunlikelymissionary.com) help me land a contract for another book, an that one should be out in March/April if everything stays on track. I also plan to start a third one for later in 2012 that is a sort of compilation of other’s stories as unlikely missionaries (sort of like the Jesus Freaks book).

    Besides that, I have some goals for continued audience growth at the website… It’s growth at the rate about about 70% per year over each of the last three years, and I would love to maintain that rate of growth (or more) into 2012.

    I’m starting a blog about online evangelism. I’ve taken a lot of the concepts that you teach us here John and incorporated them into my new blog. I hope it will be a blog that is honoring to God.

    It will be launching hopefully in January 2012, http://notashamedofthegospel.com
