2018 Personal Goals - Initial Post

As a recap of the previous years we have:

2010: 14% completed
2011: 30% completed
2012: 48% completed (counting partial completions)
2013: 28% completed (counting partial completions)
2014: 37% completed (counting partial completions)
2015: 29% completed (counting partial completions)
2016: 29% completed (counting partial completions)
2017: 25% completed (counting partial completions)

And so, even though I completely fell off the curve for 2017, I actually didn't end up doing much worse than usual. Maybe I'll try to temper my goals for 2018.

1. Finish 1st Draft of my Novel
Start - Again on the list.

2. Drop weight to 167  
Start - This has also been on the list since the beginning. Starting at 190.5

3. Read 1 of the Top Ten Books on Zane's List  
Start - I am 2/3rds of the way through The Stories of Anton Chekhov.

4. Read the last 2 books on the Sybervision Book List 
Start - Current count is at 98.

6. Finish 1 more Geological Movie Review  
Start - Earthquake still looks like the best bet.

7. Watch 10 of the 100 Greatest Movies of All Time  
Start - Current count is at 77.

8. Finish 50 things on the Blog/Website, with 30 specifically on my To Do list. 
Start - My To Do list currently has ~160 things on it.

9. Finish 5 things on the House Things to do List 
Start - The list currently has 22 things on it.

10. Finish skinning the top of the hovercraft 
Start - Hopefully I can make some time to get to it this year.

11. Get my 5K time under 25 minutes 
Start - My current best is 28:32

12. Collect and photograph all of the Star Wars Comics  
Start - It is time to finish this up. A lot more work involved here than I anticipated.

13. Submit 2 papers for publication 
Start - I need to get comments incorporated on one paper and finish writing another. 

14. Get caught up on my to read pile (which is mainly Star Wars but some other stuff as well) 
Start -  Big pile, lots to read and not much time to do it.

15. Watch and re-review Two entire lists of one of the 10 Top Ten Movies
Start - I'll have to figure out which two lists are best ones to work on.

16. Collect, photograph, and organize my Star Wars novel collection 
Start - When I move my collection, I could probably get this worked on.
