And that was 2013

2013 in focusI set out some objectives in January and reviewed them in the middle of the year. How well did I do, what have I learned and what will I do different in 2014? The last of those is easy to answer – read my next post in January when I set out some targets. As to the rest – read on.

2013 in review

The following table is from the June stock take with actual progress / success indicated:

Perspective

I have to admit to being pleased and will therefore set some harder targets for 2014. Diversity needs to be a theme along with more networking.

What about you – have you met your goals for 2013? Did you set any? Thoughts welcomed.
