Objectives for 2022

Happy New Year! It’s not too late to still say that, right? I originally wrote a draft of this on January 1 but I kept forgetting to edit and publish. Anyway, continuing the practice I started a couple of years ago I decided to come up with another list of objectives for this calendar year.

From previous years:

Get really healthy

I want to get into the best shape of my life (physically and mentally). Halfway through 2021 I injured my ankle1 and wasn’t able to run for months. Now that it’s healed I want to get back into running regularly. Additionally, my insurance plan gives me a year of Headspace for free so I want to take advantage of that.

Be more uncomfortable

For years I’ve tried to make sure I get out of my comfort zone on a regular basis. But I think I haven’t pushed the limits enough. For example, I haven’t changed apartments since I first moved to California. The idea of moving terrifies me, but I’m moving apartments this year.

I’m an introvert, and I’m forcing myself to talk to way more people. I have a Calendly now! Let’s chat! https://calendly.com/preetamjinka

Have bigger side projects

I haven’t had a serious side project in a while. Crossjoin is my latest one. I’d love to get other users to use it, but I am willing to settle for simply having it as a showcase project on my profile.

More fun food and travel experiences

In 2021 I did my first wine tasting, first tasting menu at a fancy restaurant, and first omakase. I want to have more of those in 2022. The Bay Area is a great location for it. I also need more time off so I can take weekend trips to random cities2.

  1. And got an X-ray of my foot for the first time šŸ™‚
  2. Also to collect Starbucks mugs. I’m up to 6 now.
