I talked with a friend the other day and she called me on how I had not posted my 2014 goals as I promised.
So let me fix that…
My three goals for 2014 are:
- Take a Trip to Japan and Learn Japanese – I have an inexplicable desire to go to Japan for years and this year I have decided to do something about that. The plane ticket to Tokyo has been purchased and I am going to be going for two weeks in July. When I get there, I want to be able to navigate in the native language, so my secondary goal is to be able to communicate in common situations.
- Publish Version 2.0 of Every Book Is A Startup – With the sad disbanding of O’Reilly’s Tools of Change effort, there was one small glimmer of opportunity. As the publisher for Every Book Is A Startup, they approached me about returning to me the rights to the book. I decided to take the opportunity, update the book, and republished it more widely.
- Launch a Publishing Company – This is the biggest project of the year, something I have been working on for over a year.
I will have more to say about all of these goals as the year goes on. Each one is very interesting to me. I am going to share my process and the learnings as I go.
I’m here now because I decided to google you after browsing “Every Book Is A Startup”. I had no idea who you were, but I appreciated your insight and experience in the topic that I really enjoyed it. Please do update the book when you get the chance! It’s a great read.
