2011 Goals

In most ways, 2010 was a great year: I got into and started business school, Sarah and I went on an unforgettable trip to India, and I got to spend a good amount of time at home in August. However, achieving last year’s goals was not one of the things that went well. In fact, I didn’t keep a single one – not good.

Putting that aside, it’s a new year and a new opportunity to stick to my resolutions. Here they are:

  • Develop expertise in social enterprise generally and the education sector specifically. To accomplish this I will: focus my reading on this topic (at least 3 books and magazines), shift my online news consumption to these areas, and write articles for MITER on these topics (at least 2 articles).
  • Build leadership experience through school organizations. While there will be many opportunities at Sloan, I want to remain focus on building the presence of Net Impact and MITER. The specific goals will be determined along with the rest of the student leadership team, but want to hold myself accountable to those goals here
  • Exercise! I got knocked out of rhythm because of India and then school. My goal will be to exercise at least twice per week through a combination of running, squash, basketball, and biking. If I am in Boston over the summer, then I want to bike twice a month (but it’s likely that I won’t bike at all during the winter).
  • Make a difference at Fenway High School.
  • Get involved at MIT outside of Sloan. This is a more open ended goal that can be satisfied in many ways, but the involvement should be significant and allow me to make new friends and learn from smart people

Cheers to a great 2011!
