Part of me didn’t want to do this after the debacle that was last year. That said, I am trying to be more explicit in my goals going forward.

Get a Home Base
I’m cheating here because I technically already signed the lease, but this is gonna give me momentum. Plus the lease technically starts February 1st, so I’m counting it. My list, my rules.
Transition To Business Owner of The Paleo Business
As I’m writing this – I’m realizing this is non-specific. So here’s one better.
Take an entire month, where I do not think about this business.That’s terrifying, but it’s a good challenge as to whether or not I’m actually achieving my goals.
Grow MoveWell to 10k/month
I bought out my partner on MoveWell and am this as part of one of the tools of IMPOSSIBLE. I have a full blog post on WHY I did this, but the main reason is to be able to continue to invest and grow it.
I think it’s the best mobility coach on the market – we just need to continue adding routines and ambassadors.
Launch 2 New Physical Products with IMPOSSIBLE Nutrition by end of Q2
I want to launch 2 new products with the IMPOSSIBLE Nutrition supplement line. We got the trademarks, insurance and all the legal stuff locked down. Normally, I wouldn’t care much about that side of the business, but when it comes to people’s health and consumables – it matters. Plus, I have a bit of PTSD from past legal disputes that I’m still getting over, but this is setup and ready to go and I’m excited about what’s coming up next.
Be More Conscientious
Conscientiousness is the #1 predictor of success. Basically this boils down to following through and doing what you say you’re doing to do. This is one characteristic I like to think I’m very strong at – but increasingly one the last 2 years, I’ve found I’ve slipped. I want to get back to this and am hopeful that a regular home base will help with focus and organization that lead into this.
How I’ll know if I do this: I hit 90% of the things on this list.
Become Ruthlessly Explicit
One weakness that I’ve had recently – as I mentioned – is to define things vaguely. This means that I never fail. Even when I do, I don’t have to look in the mirror. I’m tired of it – as it’s actually worse than real failure because you can’t learn from it.
Definition is often the hardest part of anything, so the rubric here is when I outline objectives have a clear pass/fail objective on it
How I’ll know if I do this: I make every goal statement have a pass/fail objective.
I want to build up a regular base of strength again. I could get fancy here, but I don’t want to.
I want to do 5×5 – times a week. That’s 60+ times in the first quarter.
I’ve set up a private document in Notion (my new favorite app) to track it.
I actually plan on getting bored with this, which is why this is mostly focused on Q1, but I’ll allow myself to switch it up if I’m consistent for the first 12-13 weeks of the year.
Events To Attend
Some events that I want to do in this year.
- Find one good ultra marathon to run (Fire + Ice ultra is the front-runner)
- HOTH in under 3 1/2 hours.
- Mr. Impossible Standards Testing (sharing this soon)
Things To Try
These are things that I’ve been interested in for a while, but haven’t pulled the trigger on. They don’t take much to actually try out other than taking the time to put it in my schedule.
- Try BJJ (one week) – I’ve never done grappling before.
- Try Parkour (one week) – I’ve been talking about it for years.
- Urban Tactical Course (one weekend) – I still am working on my Michael Westen skillset
- Firearms Course (one weekend) – Now that I’m in Texas, it seems to make sense.
Skills To Master
I have additional ones I want to work on, but again, I’m trying to focus on small, measure-able goals before I go too crazy.
- Q1 – Pistol Squats
For some reason, this year things seem quite a bit different as I’m plotting out the New Year. I referenced it in this instagram post, but I’m not really excited, enthusiastic or giddy for the New Year. I’m just determined. I am tired of executing below my capability and having a myriad of excuses for myself. I’m over it and ready to get to work.
