Goals 2015

For me, 2015 promises to be the year of math and physics. My educational goals reflect this reality. I am most excited about the prospects of creating calculus instructional videos as this will be a demanding, but important project for me. I also have a lot of educational goals based on teaching/helping others. One of my life goals is to make science and math more exciting and easier to understand so this fits naturally.

My life goals for 2015 are about becoming even more efficient and achieving better results. Topics such as ‘hacking’ the body to perform better will fall under this umbrella. I also debated whether to add the ‘vegan’ goal here since it has become a part of me. Remaining vegan does not feel like a goal to be achieved, but rather a part of my regular life now.
