Mid Year Shame

Posted in entrepreneurship by Steve Sammartino on July 3, 2012

At the end of 2011 I sat down diligently to plan my goals for the coming year. I had a list of around 10. Some of which were big, and some small but important. We are now more than half way through 2012 and I am ashamed to admit that I have only completed 1 of these tasks.

While I have done some things which were not on the list. I sent a Lego Space Shuttle into Space and got global news coverage, and started the Super Awesome Micro Project which is a new crowd funded world first project that raised $20k via twitter alone… I’m pretty down that I have achieved so little this year. The ironic thing is the only thing on the list that I have actually completed was fixing my Galaga Arcade machine as seen below….

Maybe the lesson from the only thing I have done in 2012 is this – start having more fun?

    Sending a Lego space shuttle into space is awesome!

      Hey thanks for the props Tiana, and it was ‘fun’- but I just wish I had done more of my planned activities…

        haha I made a list of 25 things I’m gonna do before I turn 25 next year and am not even close to any of them yet!

    I know telling high achievers not to get down on themselves is often a losing battle so I won’t. But your independent and original thought is breath of fresh air in a world/workplace where everybody talks but nobody listens.
