My Three Goals for 2014

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

  1. 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.
