April Goal Review

I almost held it for May, but I decided to publish a short, short version of the goal update for April:

1. Build the Boat – Launch the 17′ Herreshoff Rowboat.

I’m in the home stretch of the outside of the boat. 2-3 chances to work and I should be ready to sand & paint.
I found a partial sheet of plywood I had tucked behind some other materials in the tiny shop, so I don’t have to make another full-day plywood run.

2. Post to CultivatingEccentricity.com – Use the blog to clarify ideas and direction.

If you haven’t already, it’s time for you to start a blog.
Seriously. I’ve never encountered anything as beneficial for sorting out priorities. It’s been immensely helpful for me, and I may have actually tripped over a couple of insights in the process.

3. 34 to 31 – Change how I eat and how I exercise to drop 3″ off my waist.

I’ve developed this nagging shoulder injury that is really slowing me down. I can’t do pushups or pull-ups without contorting my shoulder joint to compensate for the lack of strength/sudden pain created by the injury. I’ve been stalling a long time, but it’s probably time to see a doctor.

On a positive note, the vision quest (post coming soon, I promise) was a strong affirmation of the benefits I’m pursuing.

4. Monetize a side business – Make $500 on a side business.

Spending lots of time on business plans and I should be meeting with investors before the end of May. There’s definitely some momentum picking up here. I can’t believe a month ago I had no ideas and no realistic prospects.

5. Adventures – Go on Adventures.

Hocking Hills baby, Yeah!

I’m considering moving to a bi-monthly update for the rest of the year. I like the monthly accountability structure, but my progress is so slow that it feels self-indulgent to keep putting these out there for people to read.
